Norfolk Guard

Norfolk Guard

 

A lone Norfolk Pine Tree stands guard over Town Beach, Port Macquarie.
The view is North towards Crescent Head and beyond.
Note the great white shark lurking just behind the surfers about to catch the next wave.
Just kidding…I think it’s a bull shark 🙂

Lighthouse Reflections

Lighthouse Reflections

 

Lighthouse Beach looking towards Tacking Point Lighthouse.
Yes I know, another friggin’ sunrise shot.
Well, if the sun and sky and water stopped looking so damn nice at sunrise,
I wouldn’t feel compelled to take a photo.
You see what I have to put up with? 🙂

Camel Stroll

Camel Stroll

 

Camels on Lighthouse Beach, Port Macquarie.
Three interesting facts about camels:
1. Contrary to popular belief, they do not store water in their humps…it’s actually a mound of fatty tissue from which the camel derives energy when food is scarce.
2. They have two sets of eyelashes to protect their eyes from sand and can also close their nostrils to prevent sand from getting up their nose.
3. You can fuel a fire with their poo because it’s so dry!
So there you go. Next time you’re trekking across the Sahara with your camel and you’ve run out of fire starter cubes to get your campfire going, just grab a handful of camel dung!

Ghost Walkers

Ghost Walkers

 

I named this image “Ghost Walkers”, thinking it was a pretty clever title.
But then I thought, “Do ghosts have feet?”
Don’t they just float around making noises similar to a cow giving birth?
Hmmm…I guess these COULD just be human footprints.
Kinda ruins the theme of the post though. Oh well.

Skewer

Skewer

Lighthouse Beach, Port Macquarie
Not sure how I achieved this shot, but let’s just say I meant it 🙂
It kinda looks like the rising sun has been skewered, ready for the BBQ.
Or maybe an alien figure…see the round head on top and the body below?
Or maybe it’s just a sunrise shot that’s gone wrong. Yep, I think that’s it.

Volcano

VolcanoTacking Point, Port Macquarie.
This shot was taken on the same morning as my previous ‘Shepherd’s Warning’ post.
I’ve done absolutely nothing to the image…no enhancement, no re-touching.
The sky really was that colour at sunrise. I promise.
It literally looked like Tacking Point was a volcano, spewing lava out into the ocean.
Anyway, I’m still blown away by the sunrise that morning, hence your second dose of it! 🙂
