Nearly twenty years ago my parents bought their first investment property: a unit on the Sunshine Coast that overlooks the tidal lake at Currimundi. Since then we’ve spent many family holidays here, plus my wife and I have enjoyed some romantic getaways to this unique spot on the Queensland coastline.
The lake has a special significance to the traditional owners of this area, and it’s not hard to understand why. Natural bushland surroundings, fish and bird life everywhere, and the ever-changing tides and sandscapes make Currimundi Lake a spiritual and tranquil place to be at one with nature.
During our latest visit to the coast I was fortunate enough to have a mate lend me his Sigma 35mm f/1.4 lens, so many of the following portraits of Currimundi Lake are shot using the fixed 35mm. We also had ex-Tropical Cyclone Winston approach the coast on one of the weekends, which led to some enormous swells and some spectacular shots of the surf featured towards the end of this collection.
