The weather here today is absolutely foul,high winds and pouring rain with a forecast of localised flooding,so a quick trip back to Bondi Beach on a lovely day with Lisa seemed in order...Happy memories!

Hello Leslie ,
The weaher becomes very windy in Brittany , too . So it is a pleasure to fell the warmness of this scene , very well composed , with pleasing colors , and the alley as an invitation to go to have a bath in the natural pool .

We have similar weather to you forecast for this afternoon and evening, so this shot is a lovely reminder of warmer days gone by and yet to come hopefully. I like the point of view and the great sense of depth. The little group of people on the beach are nicely placed and balance out the scene. I'm surprised there is not more of them on what looks like a reasonable day. Good light and colours, excellence clarity. Merry Christmas to you and Gladys.

a nice thought as the wind and rain start to ramp up here on the coast. Expect it already battering you in the west. A lovely enticing shot with wonderful lines and a real sense of the scale and attraction of this place. Love the little people and the umbrella, it just adds that little something special. Excellent!

Great shot of Bondi (Nth end). Very crisp image with a feeling of depth created by the handrails leading the eye into the image. Nice realistic summer colours. The small group of three are nicely placed for the image.
In contrast to the weather described for England (and Brittany) it was a stinkin' hot day today in Newcastle NSW Australia.

I hope that you do not suffer in the approaching storm. We are in West Sussex (inland)and expecting it to be fairly bad here. How nice to post this picture of summer in Australia. I like the path and railings leading in to the pool and rocks. The trio on the beach with the umbrella really balances the composition very well. Fabulous clarity.
Have a Happy Christmas,

Si j'avais le choix c'est sur une plage comme celle-ci que je me retrouverais plutôt que dans la neige. Le sable semble bien doux et chaud sous les pieds et la petite piscine bien invitante.

Australia in late November looks a lot nicer than northern Europe in late December, although there seems to have been some slight chances of rain even on that day at Bondi. The yellow sand looks very inviting, contrasting beautifully with the turquoise and dark blue of the sea. There was nothing wrong with including a few persons on the beach. It's always nice to watch people.
Kind regards, and wishing you and your wife a Merry Christmas.

Ahh this brings back such lovely memories of our day on Coogee - and the delightful ladies with the umbrella. I hope it succeeds in warming you up a little over there. We've had a very last few days but it has definitely cooled down for today and Christmas. Wonderful shot, I like the perspective and of course the inclusion of the ladies.
Hugs to you and Gladys and a very merry Christmas to you both. I wish you health, happiness and travels in 2014.

Yes Les.... get out your speedo and go for a dip! Funny old world, you complain of the foul English weather and I complain of the heat and humidity here in Windhoek! I would like to exchange places with you for just a few hours :) This scene does look inviting and the beach pretty empty (the way I like them!) Attractively composed and something to take your mind off the rain.
I wish you and Gladys a very festive and happy Christmas and a wonderful 2014!

hello leslie. diving into the piles of old photos is a preferrable activity on a pouring day. aussieland would for sure be nice for an end of november stroll :) in fact there are two photos in it, the left side is attractive with its colors while the right side is so romantic with the umbrella figurine.
