A lone dragon stays aloft

…or this guy is on duty patrolling the coastline, perhaps..

This photo is not great because the angle that I caught him stayed at the edge of the cliff,  also caught the rock platform in straight line, and it made the his presence assimilated in background.  Oh well, I could not help it as there was a fence laid between us and I concluded that I could not train my lens in better position than this.

Also, often my daydreaming head get a mini story in the head, when I catch non-human lives with my eye-balls.  Earlier the day before I caught this dragon, I saw the three seagulls at the local beach, and I instantly came up the idea to put them the role as Lifeguard ( please also in here ).   They were charmers driving me nuts developing trifle short stories in the head (and I certainly love doing that ;-)).

Thank you for WordPress friends for sharing your views to the photo of the dragon!

I took back to the image and gave it try a bit more edit, which turned to this.

I am happy with this in hue, contrast, and composition.  🙂

Anyway, thank you for stopping by.

LIFE GUARD3

This was literally the first shot I took in Gold Coast.

We took a very early flight (departed Sydney at 6:10am) and put our luggage onto the accommodation to head to a local cafe (a particular cafe which my friend loves) for the breakfast.  I caught this on our way to the cafe walking along the beach.

I thought this photo was as good in contrast of bright yellow of Life Guard shed in the bright blue sky.  Then I turned it into black and white, and found it good too.

Can you see the skyline of high-rise buildings?  The symbolic Surfers Paradise skyscrapers never get absent its existence, but it actually helped me to make my photo a little bit unique in perspectives.  Yes, they are caught in frame in number of photos I took in GC.  😉  I will share a few more in later posts…

Coolangatta at sunset

Here are a little more photos of sunset beach at Coolangatta.  I stepped down to the beach from Pat Fagan Park after I took a few photos from, which you can see some on here .

I don’t need anything in front of the nice sunset (and sunrise too!).  They just adore me and I am lost sense of times completely…always!  And this evening stopped me from thinking about anything but just sticking the view in making sequel changes every second.

I hope you will enjoy the scenes too.  🙂

Coolangatta into golden hours

I flew up to my first Gold Coast trip with my friend last week.  This was made her last trip in Australia before she left.

Funny that I had never tried GC in my holidays list in the past and people were surprised at that for the years long of me living in Australia.

My stereotype image of GC was just Surfers Paradise, which does not interest me to visit that much ( and very sorry for those who like there).  However, the area at Coolangatta was very relaxing and we had great short holiday with full of laugh and joy.  I appreciated her to choose there and gave me the opportunity to go to.

Below were taken in golden hours at Pat Fagan Park.  I love these shots because of the silhouette of people at the beach and some magical lights shed in there.  I will be posting a bit more photos in later posts, so I hope I can share some fun with you.

Coastal blue

I would like to share a couple of images I photographed a couple of months ago.  At that day I had an early appointment near Bondi first in the morning.  I could have left the area after the appointment but I checked my time and found that I could squash short photography time before getting out.  So I did so quickly along Bondi Coastal Walk.

It was same coastal walk that I had taken while ago, but this time I caught in different angles.

It was a little rushed but I had fun enough, and it was nice little memory of summer.
