The purple fields at Tunkalilla beach

Blowing-in-the-wind-Wendy-Philip

Social media is criticised for portraying a world that is idealistic and beautiful. People post only the good days, the good photos and the good times.

Well I must be weird because I would rather see other peoples good times, their happy moments and their best photographs with their nicest smiles.

I cannot see the point in dwelling on the bad and negative situations in life. 

....and so I travelled to the places where there was no worry. I took my camera and headed for my fav beach. Tunkalilla Beach is a beautiful rugged beach in South Australia which is frequented by mainly surfers. I planned to take many shots of the sea shore..... 

When I arrived at my destination I looked over the hill and down into the valley and it was covered in purple flowers. (Blueweed or Salvation Jane) from one end to the other, a haze of purple!

I wandered down the steep slopes then set up my camera, put it on timer and spent an hour or two taking all those, happy, snappy selfies. The butterflies danced, the sheep chewed, the kangaroos hopped and the ocean roared in the background. (I never got over to the beach, the purple field held me in a trance like vice!)


Lying in the sun.
Sheep on the track to the beach?
Purple
I set up my camera
And I ran away from it while the shutter clicked.
The butterflies danced
And the kangaroos hopped.
Having fun.
Kangaroos keeping an eye on things
Overhead
Transported to another world.
