The Great Aussie Past-time

This is the great Aussie past-time, sipping a cold beer with a mate on a hot day.
No, no I lie, we don’t do this all the time. We actually have become a nation of coffee drinkers :)
Photo taken at Yungaburra, Atherton Tablelands, Far North Queensland

Sugar Cane

Sugar cane is grown along the east coast of Australia all the way from Mossman up in far north Queensland down to Grafton in New South Wales. Whilst driving in far north Queensland, we passed miles and miles of sugar cane plantations – it was never ending. Here is a photo of some of the sugar cane bins that sat waiting and ready for harvest.

Pioneer Cemetery

There’s something about old cemeteries in B&W. I’m always fascinated by old graves and I try to imagine what life would have been like back then. Although the amount of children’s graves found at these old cemeteries is somewhat upsetting. This was taken at the Cairns Pioneer Cemetery, in Cairns of course.

More God Rays

Both photos were taken from the Esplanade, Cairns where I captured more sun rays. In the first photo I captured tourist boats taking off for Green Island. I love those sun rays; they’re just heavenly ;)

God Rays

We were on the way from Innisfail to Cairns when we spotted the sun pushing through the clouds over mountains. So my husband (being the good man that he is) stopped on the side of the road so that I could take a few photos. Whenever I see sun rays like this I see a little opening to heaven. I call them God Rays. DSC_3367-2 DSC_3383-2
