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…
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 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.
This was taken at The Rocks, Sydney on last weekend. Lots of buildings in Sydney city were shone by afternoon sunlight.
The contrast of colors between foreground in gold and background of blue sky was quite impressed to me. I did not have my DSLR with me but my old iPhone did a fair work like below, I think… :-).
It was warm winter afternoon and the crowd around the area was frolic with wines and foods as served by number of stalls at the site. The photo was caught when the light started dimming toward evening. It was a lucky shot, I caught. 🙂
