Having finally processed all my shots from my recent trip (see HERE), here are a few more for you to comment on.

1) For those who could not spot the beach! Taken using my Tokina 11-16.

2) Kite surfing of the North Beach area of Durban

3) A cow in a pond!

4) You really never know what you might see. First guys carrying heavy logs on their heads and then 2 others washing a high class Mercedes, but why there were washing there, over a hundred yards from anything is beyond me (maybe there was a source of water).

5) A friendly welcome

6) Walking miles in flip-flops is not uncommon here.

7) The Umhlanga lighthouse from my hotel room

Great color, I've been to South Africa and it has much to offer.
My favorites are the first two as the beach is one of my favorite places to people watch, enjoy. I've taken a lot of shots of kite surfing, your shot turned out great as it's hard to get a perspective from above like you did.

Allt the images are nice (IMO you shot them in too harsh light), but the Car Wash stands out and speaks volumes about the contrasts in that country... It alone is brilliant!
