OOPS THE TIDE HAS TURNED!

Posted by
Maxine (Christchurch, New Zealand) on 10 October 2008 in Landscape & Rural.

So busy were we taking the photos from different angles that we had not realised how much the tide had come in. so after this shot Richard ended up with a paddle in the ocean complete with best shoes socks and trouser legs. I wanted to show you a picture of this but thought it would be a little too much for my cheeky fellow! PS TOMORROW IS CATURDAY!!!

Doesn't he look great sitting up there like he is on top of the world ;o) The light is beautiful, as is that sky, those boulders just blow me away. See you tomorrow for Caturday~~ ^..^~

Poor Richard. I'd say this shot was definitely worth his sacrifice, though. Easy for me to say, huh?
