Sunday Selections #158
Welcome back to Sunday Selections!
This once-a- week-meme was originally begun by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock, as a way to showcase some of the many photos we all take, but don't get around to showing on our blogs.
The rules are very simple:-
1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title
2. link back to me, River, somewhere in your post
3. leave me a comment so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted.
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week I'm showing views from Semaphore Beach.
I went out there on January 25th, the day before Australia Day, hoping to see some kite flying.
There weren't any kites which was a little disappointing, but I did spot.......
and a shark-spotter helicopter.
a few boats out on the water
and a mosaic decorated water bubbler on the foreshore court.
just look at that amazing blue sea, sky and white sand.
There's a good reason why Adelaide is known as "The Athens of the South"
on the other side of the jetty was this tideline of seaweed
and this pretty little sandcastle.
Now for some jetty photos......
you just can't have beach photos without the jetty shots.
looking through the pylons
you'll notice some of those pylons are metal, they've replaced a few of the old wooden ones that have rotted away or been storm damaged over the years.
this is the low end right up by the forecourt, see the seaweed? the tide sometimes comes right up the sand. It's called a king tide I believe.
and here's a photo looking along the dunes to the left of the jetty.
I hope these bring a little warmth to those of you currently snowbound up there in the northern hemisphere.
You'll notice the sky is different shades of blue, it seemed to make a difference when I had the sun directly behind me as opposed to over my shoulder.
