FSO - Beaches and Shores

I've been in Taranaki this week so it is some of my favourite beaches and shores of Taranaki that I will show you. The coastline of Taranaki offers great variety.  

 Stretches of wild coast with steep cliffs marching away into the distance

 Beaches strewn with driftwood

Beaches where little mountain streams empty into the sea


 
Places where waves smash on to rocks

and a little distance inland, lots of lovely stoney creeks
running down from Mt Taranaki towards the sea.

I'm looking forward to doing the Spotlights this week.  Can't wait to see the beaches, shores and watery places that the Friday My Town Shoot Out participants will be showing us this week.   They will be here, drop by to have a look.  Or, better still, join us.  Share some photos of your community.

  1. Truly stunning. This is a good set and not half as tilted as I'm thought Kiwi horizons used to be.

  2. Homesick! I can see I'm going to be saying and feeling this one heck of a lot more before the year is out. Usually I'd be thinking "2 months gone and 4 to go".

  4. You have beautiful shore line photos. That first one is just stunning. The shore looks like the perfect place for a long walk.

  5. Beautiful in the same way that the Oregon coast is: rocky and wild. I'm glad that you included a pic of a stream coming to the sea; I love that.

  7. Those look like some of the best places to walk and meditate -- gorgeous!

  8. Looks like very interesting and refreshing places to go exploring! I'm sure the driftwood would set my imagination running wild (seeing all sorts of things in it). I haven't been to a beach for quite a while and could not find a way to make my Midsummer Eve celebrations fit the theme, so will give this week's FMTSO a miss ;)

  10. Absolutely wonderful shots here Pauline. So very interesting and full of texture and shading. Going to Hilton Head island this week which is on the East Coast of the US. Will definitely have photos.
