Sunrise

A 4.30 am start to the morning was a real struggle for me. I usually like to take photos of sunsets not sunrises but I enjoyed the experience. I love this time of year either way :)

A Day at the Beach

I love this photo because there is so much going on: man taking photo; boy kicking a ball; kids playing in the sand; people swimming; people body surfing; people strolling and so much more, not to mention the vast array of colours. It reminds me of the old days when families used to get out and enjoy life every weekend :)

Springbrook

Two of these photos were taken in the rainforest on the way to The Natural Bridge. The other two are from the outer side of the waterfall where you can see part of The Natural Bridge.

The Natural Bridge

The Natural Bridge, Springbrook National Park, Gold Coast Hinterland. The Natural Bridge is a naturally formed rock arch over Cave Creek. It was formed from a waterfall which undercut a cave beneath the waterfall and dug a pothole on top, until the two joined and the creek flowed through the cave, leaving an arch across the front.

Nepalese Pagoda

The Nepalese Pagoda is one of South Bank’s most treasured attractions. Originally brought to Brisbane as the Kingdom of Nepal’s contribution to World Expo 88, the three-story high Pagoda is now located in the heart of the Parklands. It features 80 tonnes of hand-carved Nepalese timber and took more than 160 Nepalese families two years to build. It is also one of only three Nepalese peace pagodas in the world to be located outside of Nepal. [Source]
