its summer, its cold

I have stayed away from walking amongst the coastal rocks. The  cold, south-westerly winds have been continual and persistent.  Some of the gusts  have been  close to gale force. I haven't been making many photos along the littoral zone as I have been walking in the bushland  to shelter from the wind. 

It was only occasionally during  the late spring month of November  that I would  do the coastal littoral zone walk with a camera in the late afternoon: --- the conditions were that  the wind had dropped, it was overcast, and there was some warmth. 

on Dep's beach

Dep's Beach is one of the spaces Kayla and I walk to on our early morning walks. It's  a small beach that lies between Petrel Cove and Kings Beach, more or less  on the border between Victor Harbor and Waitpinga:

Most people walk across it as they walk along the heritage trail. Surfers--mostly young lads--- are its  most frequent visitors. They surf at the western end of the beach,  which is where the above photos was taken  during the recent very changeable weather.   

2 rocks

After spending  12 days on the road to and from Lajamanu in the Tanami Desert in the Northern Territory I walked along Dep's  Beach on the morning after  my return to Victor Harbor.  This  is in the early morning light:

I was seeing differently. I would normally walk past these rocks in the sand

early morning light

The wild storms and rain have passed.  I have returned to exploring the literal zone.  The sky is clear in the morning,  and  there is early  morning light on the coastal rocks:

The light  now is very different from that before the storms that battered South Australia.
