Not the best light to shoot in,bit to harsh,but have not been able to get out the last week.
My daughter and i saw a couple of whales,a turtle and a few dolphins.

The area is famed for its rural beauty and its beaches.

I love the east coast between Sydney and Brissy ... and north as well.

I love the drive along the Pacific Hwy ... it's very picturesque indeed.
I need to do a road trip and take the camera ... and a few memory cards as well.

Byron area is very nice indeed.

I think it's time to start travelling and taking shots me thinks.

I'll chime in and say I like the lighthouse shot the most. Thanks for sharing this part of our world.
