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.
As I raised my camera at The Color Run (their spelling – but in Australia we spell it colour), on the Gold Coast today, I heard this lady say to no one in particular, “I can’t see a thing – I’m going blind.” The Color Run is known as the ‘Happiest 5K on the Planet’. It is staged all around the world. Queensland, Australia.
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.
For a few seconds I watched a lady on the beach attempting to snap a picture such as this. I decided to take advantage of the situation. I jockeyed for a decent position behind her, raised my camera, clicked off a few frames, and kept on walking. Many, many times on the Gold Coast I have seen people doing this type of snap? It could have been better, but it’s not bad. Yah. Queensland, Australia.
