Maybe A Model

Maybe a model for a magazine – I do not know. But it was a wonderful sight from Miami Hill on the fabulous Gold Coast over the weekend. I was so far away I needed to use a 600mm lens to snap this. And to top it off, a wave ripped up the beach just as I pressed the shutter. It filled up the frame – and that’s what I wanted. Hooray, Queensland, Australia.

Happiness In Color

Hooray, another happy snap of The Color Run (their spelling), held on the Gold Coast yesterday. The organisers believe it is the ‘Happiest 5K on the Planet’. It is staged all around the world and is the largest running series ever. It was founded in January 2012 as an event to promote healthiness and happiness by bringing the community together. Queensland, Australia.

Shifting Sands

The biggest offshore dredging program has kicked off with a 111m long barge dredging tonnes of sand and pumping it toward beaches on the Gold Coast. The $13.9 million Beach Nourishing Project aims to increase the amount of sand on open beaches which are vulnerable to erosion caused by powerful cyclones and wild surf. For the next 16 weeks crew on the Balder R hopper dredger owned by Danish company Rohde Nielsen will work all hours dredging tonnes of sand from deepwater to the surf zone. I SNAPPED this wonderful sight with a 600mm lens at Mermaid Beach on the Gold Coast. In Queensland, Australia.
