  • Tallebudgera Lifeguards
    on Jul 10, 2009
    A little while back, I went for a walk on the beach to get myself out of the gloom of my 'darkroom'. The weather was slightly overcast but I took my little compact camera with me rather than the heavy backpack with all my SLR gear. I spotted these li...
  • Rascalls
    on Jul 2, 2009
    These two lads were up to all sorts of antics and enjoying themselves enormously here at the seaside. They had climbed up about 20 feet onto 'Elephant Rock', a feat that I wasn't going to attempt. They were good humored, not minding their photo being...
  • The Lazy Sea - Currumbin
    on Jun 26, 2009
    It was one of those lazy days when the sun worked its somnambulistic magic - even the sea seemed to be sleepy, just slopping gently against the rocks here at Currumbin.
  • Shimmering Sea - Currumbin Creek Estuary
    on Jun 20, 2009
    Yesterday I made the short trip, about 5 minutes drive, to Currumbin Creek Estuary and found it to be a dazzling sight with the morning sun shimmering brilliantly on the sea. It's winter here now and I went without a hat but was surprised to find tha...
  • Shimmering Sea - Currumbin Creek Estuary - 2
    on Jun 20, 2009
    I've processed another version of the previous photo. It's my first attempt at adding texture to an image. I don't think I was too heavy handed. I know I've created a fake 'film' effect but until I can procure a scanner that is able to scan my Holga...
  • Sunshine on the Estuary
    on Jun 18, 2009
    Abundant sunshine sparkling on the water at the estuary of Currumbin Creek and on the sea beyond lifts my spirits every time. On the skyline can be seen Burleigh Head on the left and the high rise buildings of Surfers Paradise to the right.
  • Boys on a Rock
    on Jun 18, 2009
    A few paces to the left of the previous photo and I discovered these boys had climbed the rock. At my age, I think I will just potter around on the flat section below :-/...
  • The Fisherman, The Bicycle and The Seagull
    on Jun 15, 2009
    The late afternoon sun glares through the salty atmosphere silhouetting a fisherman, bicycle and seagull on the rocks by the sea. The large crane which has been a dominating structure on the opposite shore for quite a while has recently been removed...
  • Angling in the Silver Sea
    on Jun 12, 2009
    Having been deprived of my internet connection for some days, I've decided to post an extra image today. It's just a simple scene of a hopeful fisherman angling in what one could imagine to be a sea of silver, made so by the beautiful morning light.
  • A Dash of Blue
    on Jun 12, 2009
    After a frustrating week of my internet connection being down I felt like posting a sunny photo with a dash of intense blue. So here is a view looking across Palm Beach from Currumbin Creek Estuary. The air is free of the hazy salt air that so often...
  • Ghost Children of Currumbin IVThanks everyone for your feedback. It seems that black & white better suits this theme so I have posted another one in b_w today. Some thought that the white areas of the scene looked like snow. It’s actually froth whipped up from the sea b...
  • Ghost Children of Currumbin IIIAfter looking some more at the previous image in this ghost children theme, I’m now not sure that I am happy with the murky colors in it. I had already made a b & w conversion as well so I thought I’d post that one too. What do you th...
  • Ghost Children of Currumbin III’m feeling creative and since I managed to get so many keepers from yesterday’s shooting, I’ve decided to post an additional photo today. This is the second of the ghost children of Currumbin photos. As well as normal photos, IR...
  • Ghost Children of Currumbin II spent some hours yesterday shooting at Currumbin. The weather has been terrible with dangerously high winds, big seas and heavy rain. The blast from the weather depression has whipped up huge amounts of froth from the sea which has been strewn all...
  • Ebb and Flow - Currumbin
    on May 22, 2009 in seascape currumbin long exposure
    A few paces from the previous photo and looking southward, the ebb and flow of the sea rushed in and out of the rock gutters here at Currumbin Point. The afterglow of the dusk sky was rather nice as I continued to grab long exposure shots in the fadi...
  • Elephant Rock III - CurrumbinJust a few miles to the south of the previous shot at Burleigh Head, which is visible in the distance at the left, is Elephant Rock. It sits on a rock platform which juts out into the sea at the estuary of Currumbin Creek. On the horizon are the high...
  • Burleigh Head Shoreline
    on May 14, 2009 in seascape burleigh head long exposure
    About a hundred yards or so to the south of the shot in the previous post is this scene. I took it from the heights of Burleigh Head looking down on the shoreline at an angle of about 45 degrees with a 300 mm lens. It’s another one which has be...
  • Burleigh Head at DuskI’m taking a break from the ‘pier’ scenes and posting some images from my hard disk which I took just a few months ago. This is a dusk scene in the shadow of Burleigh Head on Australia’s Gold Coast. I found a comfortable rock...
  • Pier III
    on May 4, 2009 in black & white seascape pier
    Here’s a peep through a gap in the rocks at the pier which has been featured in the two previous posts. I have converted this one to black and white - I don’t know whether I love or hate the color caste produced by the filters in those ot...
  • Pier IISupernova above this pier at Tweed Heads? Nah, it’s just the morning sun. The shot is another one taken using a sunset filter. I ordered filters from an eBay supplier and received a substitute brand in lieu and it seems to me that the tinting i...
