A Slack Swan performing Swan Lake on the lake on the Gold Coast in the early morning light. Yippee.
Backlit and beautiful – and that’s how it was early yesterday morning on the wonderful Gold Coast. Yippee. Queensland, Australia.
At sunset yesterday in Sydney, while having a cleansing ale at Circular Quay, Sydney, I noticed a mohawk man walking along the waterfront near the Opera House. With no time to check my exposure, I leapt from my chair, and as I snapped the first image some person blocked my view. The same thing happened with the second shot. The next two frames were slightly out of focus. Bastard! I quickly moved along a few tables and all of a sudden I had a clear view of the fuzz, so I managed to snap off two quick pictures in succession. “Hooray!” I yelled like a crazed animal.
A couple of days ago a pesky gull made a grand entrance at sunrise on the Gold Coast Broadwater. Click! You beauty. Queensland, Australia.
A silhouette I snapped of a backlit pelican roosting on a post in the afternoon sun on the Gold Coast. If it continues to sit in the sun all day, it will end up looking like a roast on a post. Hooray. Queensland, Australia.
Not a drop of rain on the Gold Coast last night, but the sprinkler system worked very well. Say hooray for water. Things are dry in my neck of the woods. However, the weather experts in Queensland have continually told the public it was going to rain. It has, but only a few drops. We want rain! Queensland, Australia.
Go the Gold Coast gull with the almost perfect feathers. Fly high you little feathered beauty! Queensland, Australia.
Snapped a lizard on a rock, but it’s not flat out drinking. It’s at Point Danger (near Coolangatta) simply enjoying an early morning view of the Pacific Ocean. Coolangatta is on the Queensland and New South Wales boarder in Australia.
The early morning light today on the Gold Coast was simply wonderful. Magnificent. A magic hour. I love the heart-thumping moment when I point the Nikon, see the powerful sun-rays reflecting off the water and I just happen to have the correct exposure. Hey, what beauty. Queensland, Australia.
Snapped this pesky gull as it searched for food in the late afternoon light. Yep, you could almost count the feathers. Love backlight. Queensland, Australia.
