Sunset over Port Macquarie.
It’s been a tough week for Sydney and Australia (Martin Place siege)…
but love, beauty and inspiration are never far away.
Lifeguard Tower, Lighthouse Beach.
The lifeguards from Tacking Point Surf Lifesaving Club use this tower to keep watch over swimmers and surfers at Lighthouse Beach.
And it’s all volunteer work. Legends.
This shot was taken at Lake Cathie (pronounced Kat-eye), just south of Port Macquarie.
Why ‘Stretching Giraffe’?
See the top of the tree trunk – I reckon it looks like a giraffe’s head stretching for some leaves. Don’t you think?
I freakin’ love these winter days in Port! 🙂
Town Beach, Port Macquarie.
This is the kind of day where I pinch myself and remember how lucky I am to live in a place like this…turquoise water, clean beaches and beautiful winter weather.
Port Perfection indeed.
Commanding. Astute. Magnificent.
This guy was perched on his post by the Hastings River at Westport Park.
I managed to snap the shot as his head turned and the morning sun caught his beak.
He then gave me a glare as if to say “Come any closer and you’ll lose a finger”.
As you were Mr Pelican. As you were.
Looking south towards Lake Cathie, Bonny Hills and North Brother Mountain.
Yeah, yeah I know…I haven’t posted since last year.
What can I say? I’ve just been busy doing, you know, stuff.
Anyway, here’s a delightful shot to ease myself back into it.
Til next time…
Lighthouse Beach, Port Macquarie.
You might say I was ‘tickled pink’ to capture this sunrise [insert uncontrollable laughter].
Wow. There really are no words to describe this. So I’ll stop typing. 🙂
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 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? 🙂
Looking South towards Watonga Rocks, Lighthouse Beach at about 6.30am.
Beautiful temperature, crashing waves and a bunch of early risers with smiles on their faces. Nice one!
