There are beautiful sunrises and sunsets here and viewing is from the back of the home area where there is the staff living quarters and a holding paddock and dam. The home property is shaded with many different trees. Another beautiful day has begun.
It was a dull cold morning with a sharp freezing wind that cut through my body as I walked along the beach beside the water. The sky was grey. I gave up and walked up to the surf Club where a small coffee stand was serving hot coffee and breakfast snacks and walked back toContinue reading “Sunrise and Sunset Kingscliff”
The last February Sunrise on the Southern Moreton Bay Islands was spectacular. I took the 5.20 am Ferry from Russell island to Redland Bay Marina, taking photos as the colors deepened and changed with vivid intensity.

Russell Island has amazing sunrises. I stand on the back verandah, usually surrounded by birds waiting to be fed, watching the sunrise every morning, and each morning it is different. Sometimes just a red sky, sometimes clouds in different shapes and different colors too. Today the clouds are flat across the horizon and streaking therContinue reading “Another Island Sunrise”
