Harsh landscape

Here is a landscape of incredible harshness ... desolation. You wondering briefly if the water in the top left hand corner is a mirage? Is it a salt pan? But no, it's the ocean, a little bay in the south, called Myponga Beach. Not many people know it's there, because the only road to get in and out is so bad, it's a car-killer. It's almost "4x4 or nothing" territory. The community at the end of this road-from-hell is small, private, quiet, peaceful, lovely -- and secret! I'd love to go back there (there are holiday homes...) but I don't think my car would survive the drive again! Photo by Jade, 2007.
