Confluence by hougaard Confluence by hougaard
Please like my facebook page for more frequent updates on travels, photos, tips, tutorials and workshops!

Please view this image on my website where it will display against a dark background at it's intended resolution and sharpness.

Water washes in all directions as waves batter the multi layer rocks of the Arniston coastline in warm dawn light. This specific cauldron in the coastline is very curteous to photographers as it absorbs the kinetic energy of the wave and softly pushes over the edge instead of crashing over in a dramatic display of camera wrecking water. Once the wave pulls away and the water flows back off the rock shelf it creates brilliant water cascades.

Arniston is just a few kilometers from the geographic confluence of the Indian and Atlantic oceans at the Southernmost tip of Africa, hence the title.

Arniston, Overberg, South Africa
