Our Life Savers………..

26 Jan


It’s the Australia Day Public holiday here in Australia. That usually means a sleep in, a trip to the park with the kids or a BBQ with family and friends for most people. For us photographers, an early morning fashion photo shoot or some landscape work capturing the beautiful sunrise light.

Lots of people here on the Gold Coast we have days of rain meaning most people stayed indoors, but this morning the beaches were littered with debris from the storms and every man, woman and dog were out getting so much-needed fresh air.

I spoke briefly about waterfront properties last post, well I think this position is even more spectacular.

Back to the point of the post, while the rest of us relax on our national holiday, spare a thought for the groups of volunteers that continue to watch over us while we play. This Surf Life Saving boat was out at about 6.00am for a training run, with  messy seas, light rain and fog to contend with these great Australians were still honing their skills. Thank you for all your efforts, it is appreciated.
