One of the most awesome experiences that you can possibly have is spending time in the remote location of Jacobsbaai. For those of you not in the know it is up the West Coast of South Africa. I always feel a sense of peace and tranquillity when I am there, something which I can only hope to portray in the photographs I take. It is hardly believable that you are a mere hour and a half from Cape Town.
My West Coast Weekend
You are really brought back to the basics of existence, in this beautiful and somewhat luxurious surrounding. As far as the eye can see there is only sand, sea and fynbos, dotted with the odd dwelling. As I always find while I am there I become rather introspective questioning my existence on this earth. It is a good place to reflect on your life and make plans for the future, reunite with God and your inner-self.
It is the best destination to take long leisurely walks on the beach and take in the beautiful scenery. It is definitely a bird watchers paradise as well. If you are the adventurous sort then a boat trip or surfing is definitely in order. The rockpools and sand dunes are perfect playgrounds for children.
If you are fortunate you can witness the most exceptional sunsets that you will probably ever see. This is definitely one of my favourite subjects to photograph. No matter how many times I have taken photographs of the sunsets over the years, they always seem more beautiful and awe inspiring than before!
