Stretching Giraffe

Stretching Giraffe

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! 🙂

Lighthouse Beach.
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…

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 🙂

Pelican Wharf

Pelican Wharf

Hastings River, Port Macquarie.
Nice day to cruise around the wharf looking for breakfast/lunch/dinner.
I wonder if pelicans take pride in the size of their beaks or whether they’re mocked by other bird species at social gatherings…
“Hey pelican! Yeah, you. Your name wouldn’t happen to be ‘Bill’ would it?”
(laughter erupts around the party, led by the Kookaburras)

Seat View

A front row seat for sunrise over Tacking Point, Port Macquarie.
Well, a front row seat if you turn your head 90 degrees to the right and look East.
‘An aisle seat for sunrise over Tacking Point’ doesn’t quite work as well.
Maybe I shouldn’t have mentioned the seat at all.
In fact, the word ‘seat’ has been written too many times in this post already.
Lighthouse: “Ahem, I think I’m a little more impressive than that seat people.”

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.
