Sunny Day at the Beach

Yesterday I finally took some time to go to the beach and since it was a weekday, the beach was deserted, just the way I like it: the beach all to myself, perfect for relaxation & meditation.
 
my camera lens was overwhelmed by the power of the Sun

nature is amazing!

this dog appeared, then I felt he was trying to lead me somewhere


as if he was a messenger from Nature, he lead me here...

 
 ...a dump-site where visitors to this amazing beach don´t have decency to pick up their own garbage after they leave and just throw it there. After witnessing so much beauty and then coming to this, I felt rage. But I had to face the reality in front of me.
One of the problems with littering the beaches is that all the garbage will eventually reach the sea by the action of erosion (wind, rainfall, etc.) I always bring a small bag to gather my own garbage and take it to proper disposal site. Now I know next time I come to this paradise I will take a large trash bag (or several) to pick some of the shit left by unconscious/careless people. If everyone that visit this place would pick up their garbage, we all could enjoy this gift from Nature.


On another note: I found this hologram movie poster of "The Ring 2"... too bad it was in such a bad state :(

  4. Were you the only one there? Sucks you had to find litter, especially taking pictures

  5. Amazing that you have the discipline to pick up other people's garbage too! A lot of people would be like "meh, not my problem", while in the long run, it's also their problem.

    Also, you meditate? How? Do you use binaural beats or anything to help you with it?

  6. beautiful pictures!! Holy cow!!

    The trash makes me sick :(

    I always bring a water bottle with me on my hikes. When I finish the bottle I stuff it full of as much trash as I can.

    Great post!

  17. Sometimes you never know what's really lying behind the beauty.

  18. this makes me very envious, where I am, buildings hide the sun and the beaches do not exist ..

  22. Perhaps whatever organization that owns/maintains the beach would be willing to handle the litter, instead?

    ReplyDelete
  23. nice!
    what kind of cam you have?

  24. @ clueless dolphin the poster was in such a bad condition I don´t think anyone would want it, also if it was of an older movie perhaps people would buy it, but The Ring isn´t that old

    @ Alpha the beach is supposedly owned/maintained by the government but they will do nothing, the have other beaches that attract tourists and those are the one they maintain, this being a secluded beach only known by locals is then neglected.

    Toto I have a Kodak Easyshare M550 - 12MP. I want the new one with 14MP :P

  28. i know what you mean about garbage; we live in a coastal area and all of the nearby beaches aren't worth the time anymore because of the trash. :(

  29. I just went to the beach this past weekend and it wasnt nearly as nice as this!

    ReplyDelete

  32. I'm totally jealous of your beautiful beach.

  33. In the first few pics, the beach looked quite tranquil then.....it doesn't take a lot to pick up your own rubbish, some people just have to spoil it for everyone else!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. So many things are better alone.

  37. That looked like such a nice beach, lucky you having it all to yourself. It's a shame about the rubbish though, everywhere you go there's always junk all over beaches, it sucks :(

  40. That's cool that you help pick up trash on the beach.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I really hate it when people throw garbage on the ground instead of the trashcans that's literally all over the place. Just hate it

    ReplyDelete

  44. I too rage hard at people littering beaches. It's not too much effort to clean up after yourself, but it makes a horrible experience for everyone if you leave your litter. >:I

    ReplyDelete
  45. Also, I love the idea of the dog leading you somewhere.

    ReplyDelete
  46. You should have taken a picture of the dog with the pants...
