Spent 5 years of my youth in Port Elizabeth. As soon as I saw the picture recognized instantly the exact spot it was taken !! Maitlands was a favourite weekend destination - the photo captures the dramatic and dream-like quality of the place.
Sand dunes? I think something is wrong with my computer, all I see is jagged rock. Photos pretty good, but I wouldn't won't to sleep on those sand dunes, as we sometimes did, when I was a kid on the cape. Cape Cod Massachusetts.
@Shannon T yes, it might be a sea of liquid methane. I was standing among the rocks with my feet into the water.
@Richard Cook thank you, Richard, it's really a magic place. I spent there only a few weeks and hope to come again soon
@water bird thank you!
@maureen mendoza thank you!
@Gustavo Carneiro thank you!
@Abrahão Junior thank you!
@Cedar Waxwing You are right, I wouldn't recommend to sleep on those rocks, but that's just part of the beach, which is some Km long and about 100 m wide. Most of it is sand, which you can see towards the bottom of the picture. In another photo there are some people fishing from the shore, barefoot in the sand.
@Cedar Waxwing you are so right it looks a bit harsh rocks more than sand but i love this color of sunset
@Ilya Lychkou thank you!
