a frosty sunshine coast

The Sunshine Coast is renowned for its sunshine of course.  This morning though in the farming hinterland there was a big frost creating a very

different landscape.  The air was fresh fresh fresh and the icy chill in the air exhilarating. It is now a much balmier 15 degrees here in the hinterland hills.


30 minutes at Mylestom

In just thirty minutes on a mid winter July morning the sunrise and the morning light was a treat for the photographer.  The warm ocean and the cold air conjured up a mystical fog.  The light danced and weaved its way through the 30 minutes I strolled along Mylestom Beach.

Mylestom is a tiny hamlet on the North Coast of New South Wales Australia.  It rests just on the edge of a great expanse of beautiful pristine Pacific Ocean beach.

winter sunrise over the bluff

Winter in the Sunshine Coast hinterland brings beautiful morning light and sunrises to get even the most unwilling out of bed to enjoy over a cup of tea.

getting ready for winter

Spied this little chap moving in the herb garden looking for a place to attach himself/herself before turningready for winter into a beautiful butterfly over the winter. I guess a lot of people are like this critter with regards to winter.  They just like to curl up into something snug and often furry and sleep right through until the spring!

I do like the fur collar this one has at the top of their ‘jacket’.
