Creeks and streams……….

27 Jan

Water is spilling out of the hinterland where-ever you look.

there are small streams,

there are running creeks,

 

and fast filling billabongs.

 

Right outside my door……

A large meal after a swim with the family at the local creek meant that I needed to walk off that full feeling before bed. Naturally being a photographic tragic, I grabbed the Nikon D5000 and went towards the creek. Now for those unfortunate enough not to live on the beautiful Gold Coast, you need to realise that the sun sets behind hills that form a rainforest backdrop for the golden beaches, meaning that unless you can gain reasonable elevation you just have a glow on the hilly horizon.

The creek of course is just above sea level so I needed to look for something else to shoot. Man made structure aren’t really my favourite genre, but now and again, an image just presents itself and is different or quirky enough to be captured.

The rest of the week is booked to model portfolios and maybe some product work so this might be my only opportunity to have a bit of a play.

Of course, it would be remiss of me to not remind non-Gold Coasters of want they are missing.
