Rugged beauty

By ColleenA
Good morning, thank you for all your support yesterday, most appreciated.
Thank you also to Annette (Annettep38) and John (Johnlw) for their user awards

Today an image of our beautiful coast line (on the Indian Ocean side between Hermanus and Cape Town) captured on our return home. The mountains and countryside are covered in wild flowers and fynbos at present, quite spectacular. I will upload those tomorrow so as not to upset anyone with my multi uploads.
Enjoy your ThursdayGrinGrin

What a lovely place to be, Colleen.
Absolutely beautiful.
Sorely tempted to pack my sandals and white socks and set off.

In passing, don't let idiots modify your behaviour.

Just where I'd like to be it looks a lovely place.

OK, I may be prejudiced but the Indian Ocean is absolutely stunning. The blue is different (well it looks different to me) and the sky is spectacular above it, and the Southern Cross..... well I think you get my point.

What's all this fuss about multi uploads ? As far as I know e2 members pay their money to upload EXTRA pics.If you do not pay to be an e2 member you can only upload one a day.That seems fair to me I think !!
Good shot Colleen,but you need more than one to show the beauty of the Indian Ocean !!

I wouldn't give up multi uploads just because 1 person gets upset. It is within EPZ accepted practises and is totally up to you. And, as you say, why use your picture to make a complaint!

The letter box format is perfect for this landscape
a well taken seascape rugged but serene.

Morning Colleen. A beautiful image, you have such a wonderful coast line over there.
For heavens sake how petty are some people, if they didn't want us to put variants or a series of images on we wouldn't have the option to do so. Some people who I think are amazing and have helped me so much have decided not to use the site as regularly as they did because of peoples attitudes, find it really sad, if you don't like it get in your box and shut the lid behind you, FIRMLY!
I love your work, especially the safari images and love to see those in a series rather than a single image. And breathe WinkWink
