Lake Wivenhoe, QLD

Lake Wivenhoe (Wivenhoe Dam) is South East Queensland’s largest water storage and is the main supply of water for Brisbane and the greater Ipswich area.
It is also a very popular recreation destination, with a wide variety of activities and facilities available. There are a number of recreation areas at the lake, including Logan’s Inlet, Hamon Cove and Cormorant Bay.
We also discovered this little spot belonging to a sailing club on the Eastern side of the lake; we obtained permission to go through the gate and enjoy this private & secluded area.

I just love that first shot with the little dead trees softly reflecting in the still water. It's a very peaceful scene.

Valerie said...

What a delightful series of shots Liz - I especially warm to that last shot; it "shouts" out tranquillity! Thanks for sharing.

I've never been to Wivenhoe Dam, that I recall. Your secluded spot looks amazing, especially with that pelican cruising around. Beautiful captures.

Third time the Pelican let us see its eye. What a character! Lovely, peaceful spot to visit. Good thing you brought your camera then we get to see it too.

Beautiful golden hour shots Liz. My favorite is the road shot to the lake. I am a sucker for road shots. :-D
