South of Brighton (New Zealand)

This afternoon we drove home from Dunedin via the south coast, rejoining the main highway at Waihola. Along the stretch between Brighton and Taieri Mouth I found a little pull-over area where we could park and enjoy the view. The beach stretches out for a long distance broken occasionally by a rocky reef. The sand is white, mounding into dunes beyond the high-water mark. Photo taken by Liz (then cropped, two versions).

    1. Interesting you like the cloud.. we get a lot of cloud like that. A treat for me when we get a clear blue sky with no cloud. Happens sometimes down south here. Where I grew up in the north of NZ I don’t remember clear blue skies, there was usually cloud and if no cloud I think it must’ve been hazy.

      1. I did not know that and I’m not sure if that is good or bad for you, as a clear blue sky can be wonderful. I do like the fluffy clouds and they way they bring character to the sky and can make lovely water reflections.

    1. We must set aside some time to have a good long walk there some time! We’d have to choose a really nice day because that beach is exposed to the south and therefore can be rather chilly!
