One Word Sunday: Purple

Pale Indigo?  Yes, this is pale in hue but is still purple to me.  😉

Jacaranda season is back in Sydney.  They turn Sydney and suburbs to beautiful purple, as if that’s their way to celebrate spring season grounded.

Luckily, my bedroom is being a prime spot for appreciation, because there are three Jacaranda trees in front of the unit building where I live.

This is my (belated) contribution to this week’s One Word Sunday: Purple, hosted by TRAVEL WITH INTENT.

Full moon of the month

I missed taking her at moon rise on the full moon night because the forecast said that the evening would have been cloudy and I did not bring my camera when I left house in the morning.  The forecast ended not correct that the beautiful full moon rose and I admired her beauty at the house as cooking dinner.

I got this chance next day at dawn.  The moon was already set on the west of the skies but was still there clearly.  Her beaming light could not be missed!

I think I have missed photographing full moon number of times (months?) this year.  Sky condition was main reason of why, but I was not be able to make chances for doing it either (I would like to photograph just after the moon rise).

With the hope I will get some shots for 2 more full moons to come for 2018….

View at Point Danger

I did not think that i really enjoyed taking shoreline photos at Point Danger; the headland locating at the south end of Queensland state.

Here are collections of which I particularly like for the way how waves were caught by long exposures.

Did you find any one of which caught your eyes? 🙂

Views at Tumgun Lookout

I passed by local surfers at the walk path in Burleigh Head National Park, most of whom scurried the path reaching for the point beneath Tumgun Lookout.  They then rushed down the graveled slope to the seashore and puddled the board to catch the wave.

The below photo caught the shoreline looked down from Tumgun Lookout.  I enjoyed seeing various patterns appeared and swept by waves.  I also enjoyed seeing dotted local surfers on the water paddled and surfed.

If you move your eyes to the right, you will see the Gold Coast shoreline toward the end which is at Snapper Rocks.  Underneath the lookout is the entry point of Tallebudgera Creek, that was taken in deep emerald and blue and was not cold (yes, I touched the water before I came to this lookout).

It was a nice walk of total 2 hours.

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…
