Ohope Beach Collage

A grey drizzly day on the beach today, so we just threw and retrieved* a tennis ball that we found, and I took photos of little bits and pieces on the edge of the water.


* The dogs retrieved sometimes and I threw and sometimes retrieved.

  1. I never get bored of beaches, especially ones like this. I'd be out there looking for the filled shells too!

    1. I did a desultory look, but you really need a spade, and go down at very low tide. The oystercatchers know how to do it tho'! There are loads and loads of opened ones. Their bills must be like jackhammers!

  3. What a very interesting panoply of photographs - I like this treatment, must use the technique on one of my own postings sometime.

    1. Thanks Alden. See above. The tall, very narrow shape works best for blogger.

  4. What a pleasant vacation spot Ohope Beach seems to be!

    I love the montage of bits and pieces and the shot of the dog on the beach.

    1. It's probably rather empty compared with US beaches of a similar clime Robert. But that suits me fine, being 3/4 recluse.

  5. What a great collage. I wish our local beaches had such exciting things but it's all mud and sand unless you wade out a mile or two and fond the Cockle beds.

    1. Thank you John. I guess the flora and fauna is intimately tied to the substrate.
