Reflections & Textures at Snapper

I've been taking a little time out to do an image clean up on my hard drive over the last few weeks. I need to free up some space before my upcoming holiday to LA, Seattle and Alaska, a gift from my wonderful parents for my *cringe* 50th birthday at the very end of the month.
The digital age has meant that too many images are taken each time I am out with my camera (I know I am not alone in that!). I find the process of going through my many thousands of images, every now and then, means that I often discover a set of images that I have never edited at all or I choose to re-edit some images, based on my continually changing and developing post processing skills.
Here are some images that fall into both categories, taken last year during a Tourism Queensland 'Instameet' at Snapper Rocks on Queensland's Gold Coast.


This particular beach is a fabulous spot for both sunrise and sunset due to its position. The expanses of sand provide wonderful reflections and the rocks provide a great variety of textures.

Really beautiful skies! I like your comment about your continually changing post-production skills. I can very much relate. How I might edit an image today is likely very different from a couple years ago, and I often think about going through old images to re-edit.

Welcome to the 50th .... Congratulation! I'm now 58 and full of new ideas.
I enjoyed this post and this wild landscape, the ocean. My dream is to visit Australia.

Great shots - such rich colours.

The albatross images were all taken on a trip out from Queenscliff - so I imagine you could see similar birds from Sorrento or similar.

Dear Liz, there are not enough superlatives to describe just how beautiful I think each of these are. They are simply magical.

How exciting that you will be coming to the States. I think you will find Alaska, just amazing!

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead, sweet friend. xo.

Happy 50th. Wow, Alaska. No wonder you were cleaning up and getting ready for the trip. I've never been there. Alaska is on my "Bucket List." Excellent photos posted today. I like the soft colors and how the images speak to my soul.
