I passed by local surfers at the walk path in Burleigh Head National Park, most of whom scurried the path reaching for the point beneath Tumgun Lookout. They then rushed down the graveled slope to the seashore and puddled the board to catch the wave.
The below photo caught the shoreline looked down from Tumgun Lookout. I enjoyed seeing various patterns appeared and swept by waves. I also enjoyed seeing dotted local surfers on the water paddled and surfed.
If you move your eyes to the right, you will see the Gold Coast shoreline toward the end which is at Snapper Rocks. Underneath the lookout is the entry point of Tallebudgera Creek, that was taken in deep emerald and blue and was not cold (yes, I touched the water before I came to this lookout).
This was literally the first shot I took in Gold Coast.
We took a very early flight (departed Sydney at 6:10am) and put our luggage onto the accommodation to head to a local cafe (a particular cafe which my friend loves) for the breakfast. I caught this on our way to the cafe walking along the beach.
I thought this photo was as good in contrast of bright yellow of Life Guard shed in the bright blue sky. Then I turned it into black and white, and found it good too.
Can you see the skyline of high-rise buildings? The symbolic Surfers Paradise skyscrapers never get absent its existence, but it actually helped me to make my photo a little bit unique in perspectives. Yes, they are caught in frame in number of photos I took in GC. 😉 I will share a few more in later posts…
Here are a little more photos of sunset beach at Coolangatta. I stepped down to the beach from Pat Fagan Park after I took a few photos from, which you can see some on here .
I don’t need anything in front of the nice sunset (and sunrise too!). They just adore me and I am lost sense of times completely…always! And this evening stopped me from thinking about anything but just sticking the view in making sequel changes every second.
I flew up to my first Gold Coast trip with my friend last week. This was made her last trip in Australia before she left.
Funny that I had never tried GC in my holidays list in the past and people were surprised at that for the years long of me living in Australia.
My stereotype image of GC was just Surfers Paradise, which does not interest me to visit that much ( and very sorry for those who like there). However, the area at Coolangatta was very relaxing and we had great short holiday with full of laugh and joy. I appreciated her to choose there and gave me the opportunity to go to.
Below were taken in golden hours at Pat Fagan Park. I love these shots because of the silhouette of people at the beach and some magical lights shed in there. I will be posting a bit more photos in later posts, so I hope I can share some fun with you.
