Photographer's Note

One of the sweetest beach settings in South Australia, Port Elliot is a popular tourist destination. This is a model seaside village, with cafes, antique and gift shops along The Strand. Feel the sand between your toes at picturesque Horseshoe Bay - its large beach and safe swimming conditions making it a favourite venue for families. The surfing fraternity is well accommodated at Boomer Beach, which lies on the western edge of the town.

This photo was taken in Port Elliot. It is the Anglican Church of St Jude; he may have been the patron saint of hopeless causes but the Port Elliot congregation seems to be doing him proud. The church has a spanking new roof and a large, well-tended garden full of scarlet hibiscus and purple-and-gold birds-of-paradise. A sign in the garden reads “Stone laid 22nd June 1854. First service Christmas Day. No floor. No roof. No pews”.

The photo was cropped, resized, contrast and brightness adjusted and finally the frame was added. I would have been better had the sky been lovely and blue but unfortunatly it wasn't to be on this day.
