Uvongo Beach is the most beautiful, sub-tropical beach with sunny blue skies and the warm South African Indian Ocean at your feet. This image however represent a stormy day, not ideal for sun baths but perfect for taking some pictures. Uvongo Beach is sheltered, shark-netted and has a waterfall running into the lagoon. The Beach is definitely one of the most beautiful and sought after beaches on the KZN coast.

Image taken in RAW. ISO200

Thanks for visiting and have a prosperous 2012!

Hello George! Happy New Year to you and your family!
Impressive dramatic photo with excellent composition, and wonderful colours! The lighting and the atmosphere are fantastic!

Hello George

The atmosphere effect coming from this image
it is amazing, the POV you choose and the
darker color tones of the image contribute
to that atmosphere effect, TFS


Hello George,
Outstanding composition with fantastic colors and sharpness.
It is a wonderful and interesting landscape.
Amazing details and perfect exposure as usual.

Hello George.
I like this natural landscape shot delivered by you, George. The water trap in the foreground and the moody sky attracted my attention in this balanced composition. The natural tone is pleasing to my eyes and points have to be awarded here.
Kind regards,

  • Great
