Perfect Beach Summer - Perfect Summer Beach


What comes into your mind, 
when you contemplate / think about "summer beaches"???

Hordes of people, heat, yelling, noise, the smell of sun cream ...?

;-)

[Source: http://echtlustig.com/d/3569/manche-bilder-sagen-einfach-mehr-als-worte]
And what's you personal idea or belief about a perfect summer beach???

OK, there are certainly as many ideas about this issue as there are different kind of people and their personal preferences and commitments.


***   ***   ***    ***   ***

I want to invite you to follow me on a trip to my (idea of a) perfect summer beach...


This one looks different from the first picture, doesn't it!?!?! ;-)

Is your idea of a perfect beach - even on the peak season - related to

rest & recreation, quiet (except for bird calls and the sound of the sea), beauty & harmony, pleasant temperatures & a light wind, sense of well-being, hang around & long beach strolls, looking for shells and relaxing in a beach chair???



--> Hey - that's absolutely what I prefer, too!!! ;-))

The only thing you have to take into consideration to get this is:

Don't try to be a part of the sheep flock!

In the morning or evening time during a sunny day the beach is to a great extend - yours!
Apart from some other savourers and connoisseurs!



Have you ever watched porpoises, also called mereswines [German: Schweinswale] in front of an overcrowded beach ?


Here's a porpoise mother with two almost adult youngs looking for fish, shells and conches...


...these ones were already whale food! ;-)


And the cormorant was waiting for a yummy bite of fish as well. 


Driven by North Sea wind!


I hope you enjoyed my trip to a nearly perfect summer beach!

Now try to find your own one!

;-)

  3. I wouldn't want to be on the first beach. The second beach looks much more inviting. It looks perfect for a long walk to listen to the gulls and to enjoy the wind in my face and the smell of the sea. Have a great week!

  4. Vom Alptraumstrand bis zum stillen Waldsee bei Braunlage (meiner!) - da gibts zum Glück sehr viele Variationen und für jeden etwas...
    Das sieht nach einem tollen Urlaub aus mit Schönwetter auch in nördlichen Gefilden. Die Farbstimmungen gefallen mir besonders gut.

  5. Hallo Uwe, mir hat sich grad der Magen umgedreht, als ich das erste Bild sah :) Da würden mich keine 10 Pferde hinkriegen! Aber Bild Nr. 2 ist schon eher mein Ding (ich tippe mal auf Sylt?) Aber den Ostseestrand ziehe ich vor, weil dort, wann immer ich über den Deich gucke, Wasser zu sehen ist :D
    Superschöne Bilder, ich guck ab jetzt öfter hier rein, ich hoffe, es geht ab jetzt fließend weiter ;)

    Wünsche Dir eine tolle Woche!
    Liebe Grüße

  6. Whoah too many people in the first one! Great pics and the empty beach is my fave :)

  7. Too many people in the first one! I'd just turn around and go home!! I love the North Sea wind photo - it's beautiful!

  8. That first photo gave me the willies - I couldn't stand a beach that crowded! Where was that photo taken?
    I much prefer your notion of the perfect beach!

  10. Oh my! I would be crazy on that first beach. No thanks for me!!!

    Your favorite beach looks so lovely and relaxing place. I love ocean, gulls etc. So lovely view. Thanks for sharing!

  11. Nice collection. There are so many people on that first beach. Wow.

  12. A deserted beach is paradise.

  13. Oh my, you have captured the essence of a perfectly peaceful, beautiful day at the beach. The first photo is mind boggling. I'd avoid that at all costs! P.S. Today I posted 'The Rest of the Story' about my Milky Way image.

  15. WHAT!?! Who can be on a beach that crorded? The other place looks much nicer.:) You know, we have very lovely beaches (mostly by lakes) in Finland and we love peace and quiet.:)

  16. Yikes! That first picture looks far from a perfect beach - just imagine being in that - no thank you! Love the rest of your pictures though :) #ourworldtuesday

  17. I enjoy your idea of a perfect time at the beach. I love the solitude of a secluded beach with no people around. I can't believe that first photo. Who on earth would enjoy that?

  18. Hi! I enjoyed your perfect summer beach photos. If I were there I would love the beach very much. Thanks for sharing.

  19. Beautiful beach shots! It's hard to find those quiet ones.

    AntwortenLöschen
  20. More a fan of the quiet beaches too, it's hard to relax when you are surrounded by dozens of noisy people! Luckily in Ireland most beaches are quiet :) Love the shot of the streaming flags in the wind

  23. Lovely summer pictures - although the first one does not look very inviting, I prefer the more quiet beach :)

  24. Da faellt die Wahl nicht schwer! Immer und immer an die Nordsee und auch die Ostsee ist mit ihren steilen Küsten wunderschön. Allerdings habe ich noch nie Schweinswale gesichtet! Obwohl ich in meiner Jugend zwei Jahre auf (Foehr) und an ( St.Peter-Ording) der Nordsee verbracht habe.
    Alle Deine Fotos sind superschön ..

    1. Bei ruhiger See (Ostwind oer Kein-Wind ;-) und an einem ruhigen Strandabschnitt kann man regelmäßig Schweinswale vor Sylt am Weststrand beobachten - zumeinst eine Mutter mit Kind, die da in wenigen Metern Abstand den Strand entlang schwimmen. Mehr als die Rückenflossen beim synchronen Auf- & Abtauchen bekommt man i.d.R. aber nicht zu sehen.

  26. I really like your way of presenting this post, Uwe, including fabulous photos. What a blessing to be part of such a magically sublime sunset scene! The last image reminds me of Buddha’s Pure Land in the West. I’m not a summer person, but I like to spend time at beach; my favorite beach is off-season, even in winter. Let me finish this comment with a joke. “What is your purpose to go to Sylt?” “Porpoise.” Get it?

    1. Got it, Yoko!! ;-)

      Thanks a lot for your appreciated comment!

      My photographs give you a good overview and understanding for the real reason to visit Sylt regularly: great landscape & great nature, combined with the comforts of life plus rest & recreation. The little whales fit perfectly in this scene of nature, peace and tranquility.

  27. Hallo Uwe! Das ist auch meine Idee von einem perfekten Strand und Urlaub. Ich hasse Strände mit vielen Leute. Man muss fast zu "kämpfen" für einen Platz in der Sonne. Ich versuchte immer in der Nebensaison reisen, um Menschenmasse zu vermeiden. Vielleicht bin ich ein bisschen antisozial, hehehe.
    Der Wind dort war nicht zu kalt?
    Super Fotos!! Super Ferien!!

    This does tempt me to plan a beach visit.

  30. Hello, Uwe! Thank you for visiting my blog!
    Your moon photos in the other post are great. Indeed the full moon looked very beautiful two nights ago.
    I leave a comment here, however, because these beach photos make me dream - not the first one obviously... :) Your photos are really one more beautiful than the other. The two last ones are my favourites.

  31. I love to go to the beach all over the world! Love your shots a lot. Your other posts are great photos, too.

  32. Wie ich sehe, hattest Du einen schönen Urlaub...traumhafte Bilder. Die Schneckenhauskette ist Klasse. Selbstgebastelt?
    Bei mir war's zwar nicht ganz so schlimm, wie auf Deinem ersten Bild, aber in Duhnen werd ich defintiv nicht noch einmal Urlaub machen. LG Su
