Man I wish I had the chance to go to the beach and get some shots. God I miss it. All my beach photos are on old film photos (buried in a closet somewhere), nothing current, and not going to see the ocean anytime soon *pout*.

Took this shot during my honeymoon last summer. I shared some more shots from the trip here if anyone would like to have a look.

I live half a block from Rockaway Beach in NYC. I can actually hear the sound of 10000 teenage bikinis right now.

Unfortunately I don't have a camera worth using. How 'bout a nice haiku or limerick?

If only the weather here would pick up a bit and i had the time off to go to a beach near here that's in my opinion one of the best in Scotland.

If it is anywhere near where they filmed that movie "The Planet" you must be right. Except there was no water in that movie, it was all dunes.

Never heard of the movie, was that filmed in Scotland? only information i have of it was that it is a Scandinavian production which to me suggests it was filmed somewhere around Scandinavia.

Yes, filmed in the same city i reside. Be interested to hear if you understood what they said in that movie.

Believe it or not i never saw Trainspotting until i was in Australia, and then once again when i was in New Zealand.

I definitely agree with you... stuck here inland, only have film photos of the beach and all of those are packed away somewhere. :(

I got some of what they were saying. That guy that always beats people up was the hardest to understand, and the couple of times where there were subtitles in the movie really helped.

I should really wait to enter until I get out to Clearwater Beach again, maybe on the pier. I'll probably forget to bring my camera though so I better just enter now. :)

Some really nice entries so far btw. :D

Eh? that's one heck of a detour.

For those unfamiliar with Australia i'll give you an idea on how many miles Alex is suggesting he does to get home from Perth to Melbourne via Cairns.

According to Google Maps it would be 4350 miles or 7468km's. If he was to drive from Perth to Melbourne then it would be 1864 miles or 3,429km's. :lol:

A bit of a detour eh?

Must have found the wrong film. This was for sure filmed in Scotland by
Quote:
Stirton Productions: founded in 2003, is a privately owned digital film company based in Aberdeen, Scotland. The company produces original screenplays and features, as well as documentaries, corporate videos and “on-demand” digital effects.

It is a very low budget* sci-fi flick so I of course assumed everyone in Scotland would know it well!

It came out while BBC was airing that (very nice) mega doc "Planet Earth". It is not a spoof of that at all, but the poster for it definitely was.

*like, according to this article, £8.000 GBP! I know it was shot in < 2 weeks. It stars (the Scottish) Mike Mitchell, who was WFF "Mr. Universe" 2003-6. It's a lot of fun, I highly recommend it; kind of "existential" in the way Sergio Leone's spagetti westerns are. They did make a profit, so maybe there will be another one, hopefully this time set in an abandoned castle instead of out in the dunes :shock:

Alex, you are reminding me of what i should have done while i was in Australia. I'd have loved to have done that.

Perth is very expensive though and driving through the heart of the country is generally not advised by many people if you are unprepared. Too big a risk and too much money required to do it, however if you have the money (which i guess you do living in Perth) and the time then i'd say go for it!

Such a beautiful country for you not to do it!

Yeah, a couple of friends wanted to rent a movie a while back, and I had just been watching that "Planet Earth" series on DVD, so when I saw the cover and read "low budget Scottish sci-fi" it was pretty much a done deal and worth it. They did a "making of" doc for the DVD which the guys are quite funny/strange. Apparently they started shooting film in their early teens and this is their first feature. The budget probably did not include the CGI stuff they did themselves, which took quite a few months. It does not overpower the movie tho, it is still very stark and centered on the story/actors.

I've never been to Scotland but my mom's from Nottinghamshire and about half her friends while I was growing up were Scottish, so for that reason I feel a little warm to the place I guess.

£8.000 GBP! Still more money than I've got but pretty inspiring that you could A) buy a newish sub-compact car; or B) make a low budget sci-fi film that obviously got global distribution -- I found it in a DVD rental machine at the back of a grocery store right along with all of Hollywood's latest, *not* anywhere at all obscure.

Exactly my thoughts.

I've got uni holidays from mid november to february and a mate wants to see his family over east and get something done to his car over there. It's the perfect opportunity for an adventure :). Will be taking several cars and probably 4 or so mates, and driven across before with parents. So we should have a great time.

I wish I could go anywhere like that... I'm in the middle of nowhere (well, America), I'm in Kansas.

I have some beach pictures from the time I went to Michigan... let me dig something up...

Never mind. Can't find them. What a disappointment :(

Bogey - you should look into cruises to the Bahamas. Tickets can be had for less than $200 for weekend trips. It's a really nice experience! I've been a few times, so if you are interested, I could help you get something together.

Same here. Me and my sister and parents went to Hawaii in 1998 and got some good beach pictures, but they are all in photo albums at my parents house 1100 miles away. And all the beaches around where I live are rocky with big pine trees right out to the water. I think it is time for a creative twist.....

I wonder if anyone's ever thought about making some sort of silicon out of coral dust. :scratchhead:

When we did our trip to Hawaii I thought it was interesting that most of the sand there actually is shipped in from other beaches around the world, which means that a lot of the beaches in Hawaii are fake. My parents went again a few years ago and went to the big island and visited a couple black sand beaches and even one on another island where the sand was actually green.

Didn't know that about Hawaii but that just gives me another reason to never want to go there! I don't know about green sand, but the black sandy beaches are caused by the neighbouring volcano which consists of tiny fragments of lava. One example is the gorgeous island of St Lucia.

When my wife and I were on our honeymoon there in St Lucia this last December I don't recall any black sand, I wonder if they ship in sand there too. That island is very pretty and has some high mountain peaks, but I don't recall ever seeing black sand anywhere (at least where we went).

When we went in '98 the 4th of July was right smack dab in the middle of our time there, so the place was ridiculously crowded and that was kind of a turn off for me. A few years back I was in a little town called Cardston in Alberta CA and walking around downtown I saw a travel agency advertising travel packages to Cuba. I thought that was really cool because you don't see that anywhere in the US. Americans really are sheltered when it comes to world view.

Never thought i'd see the day where i saw black sand beaches. There are absolutely loads of them in New Zealand's south island due to the volcano's they have in that area.

Interesting to see though.

No, no that moreno.... Another Moreno ,,, I had to take the parasailing for that... It was really cool. The guy from the boat told me, I am not responsible if you take your camera with you,,, we could lost speed and you have to "touch" the water... But it was worth the risk...

There are black sand beaches in St Lucia, maybe it's only the beaches close to the volcano though? I've seen photos and ppl have told me.

As for seeing travel to Cuba from Hawaii, it's probably for non-US citizens who visit Hawaii. You guys aren't allowed to go from US soil. At least for now

Back in the days when those restrictions and the Cuban Embargo or whatever it is called were put in place Cuba posed a threat to the US, but that policy is old and not applicable any more. We've got more important things to worry about than Cuban cigars these days.

I just looked it up and found this:

http://www.mystlucia.org/info_htm/beaches.htm

Quote:
Because of St. Lucia's geography, there are black volcanic sandy beaches as well as mile-long white sandy stretches.


and the interesting part is it looks like they also move sand around there to cover the black sand:

Quote:
The Hilton imported fine white sand to cover the black sand on their beach that can make the water cloudy, but it is a most beautiful bay.

Post 3+ Months Ago

I live on a lake and I couldn't even get a picture to submit...I'm such a loser. I was going to go to this lake and get a half decent sunset picture but thats kind of an all day project and I've been busy every weekend during this comp. *%@#$&^%*!!!!
