The Jewel

I’m not a big fan of the Gold Coast’s never ending development and these new building’s are no exception. The Jewel, comprising 3 towers, tower over surrounding buildings making them appear minute in comparison while blocking out sunshine and beach views. I found them to be an intrusive phallic structure that can’t be ignored and constantly in your face so to speak but that’s progress in a popular tourist town I guess. I must admit that the architecture is quite impressive and it is sure be another Australian landmark.

Stretched across 130m of absolute beach frontage, the site sits over 2.8 acres and includes luxury residential apartments, an internationally rated 5-star hotel including a Michelin Star restaurant and a grand ballroom. The Jewel is due for completion in mid 2020.

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 đŸ˜‰
