Beautiful Queensland



Ellis Beach, North Queensland

This is the beautiful Ellis beach north of Cairns in Queensland.

It was perfect day to see my cousin get married in a simple beach wedding.

Palm trees, blue seas and golden sands which stretch as far as you can see.



Coffee by the Beach


Nice spring day to enjoy coffee by the beach.

“The wave is the signature of every experience of life. By understanding the nature of waves and their characteristics, and applying that understanding to our lives, we can navigate life with a little more grace.” Jeffrey R. Anderson

Under a Tree with Sea Views


Driving by the sea during my busy day. It was a brief moment of sunshine and it was very pleasant.



These colours leave one in complete awe. How can words describe such beauty?

Colours of the Sea


“We need the tonic of wildness…At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.”

Henry David Thoreau


Summer has Arrived


Photograph taken at Kelly’s beach, Bundaberg, Queensland. It is exciting that summer has well and truly come!


‘We live but once. The years of childhood, when once past, are past forever…it has gone beyond our reach. What we have made it, it shall remain. There is no power in Heaven or on earth that can change it. The record of our past stands forth in bold and ineffaceable characters, open to the all-seeing eye of God. There it stands and one day we shall give an account of it. The present moment alone is ours…Today is a day which we never had before, which we shall never have again. It rose from the great ocean of eternity, and again sinks into its unfathomable depths.’
Thomas De Witt Talmage
