This photograph was taken last year on a trip to the dinosaur egg beach, so named for the giant pebbles that litter the beach..

  8. Very lovely, Chilli. I discovered some “dinosaur eggs” at the new beach. Mine are much smaller and most are still imbedded in the cliffs. Perhaps I’ll post them, though my shots aren’t near as pretty as yours. :)

    • Thank you Gunta. I’m looking forward to seeing your shots. The pebbles on this beach also come from the cliff behind, embedded high up. Erosion is gradually releasing them onto the beach. They come from very violent storms that raged thousands of years ago, violent enough to round the rough edges off much larger pieces of rock than we see now, left high and dry when the sea level fell. Or so I’ve been told.. :-)

  9. I love that it’s called dinosaur egg beach. : )
    It is another beauty, Adrian. I hope nothing hatched while you were there…

    • Thank you. Sadly nothing hatched Karen! It’s a great name for a beach isn’t it?

  17. Very nice, Adrian…I have some sunrise photos of dry winter fields with the same colors above the horizon…it’s wonderful how such contrasting environments can share the same natural lighting.

    • It is Scott. Yours is a very beautiful photograph. Nature presents us with such staggering breathtaking beauty I just can’t understand why their are so many individuals and individuals leading global corporations are so busy destroying it in the pursuit of profit. Do they not live on the same planet we do? We only have one.. :-)
