Manonabeach

March 15, 2012

There was a definite feeling of spring in the air this morning and TOTD was thinking ahead to warmer days and leisurely walks along the seafront. If you miss walking along the beach then try this out. Manonabeach has a small collection of films that capture the scene at a few Cornish beaches and asks other beachgoers the question “What does the beach mean to you…?”.

California Coastline

January 7, 2010

TOTD spotted this at No.2 in the Time 50 Best Websites 2009. Photographing the entire coastline of California from a helicopter flying as low as 500 feet sparked some controversy and, like Google’s Street View, it does raise some questions about privacy. There’s no denying though that the detail in some of the photos is very engrossing.
