Magnificent Cloud Formation

A wonderful cloud formation I snapped yesterday morning on the Gold Coast Broadwater. As I lined up my Nikon a young lady walking past said, “If you think that’s good, you should have seen it 15 minutes ago…the clouds completely engulfed the high-rise”. Of course I didn’t see it – bastard. Same old story. Hooray. Queensland, Australia.

Surprise – Surprise

This Pied Oystercatcher I snapped over the weekend was surprised by a incoming wild wave at Snapper Rocks, Gold Coast. I knew this was bound to happen at some stage so I waited for the right moment: Oystercatchers are very shy of humans and seldom allows close approach. That’s for bloody sure. They are as wary little bastards. I snapped this one with a 300mm lens. Queensland, Australia.
