While photography as a business offering is often challenging and hard work, it’s still always nice while on holidays to grab the Nikon and spend some time capturing some more artistic and scenic shots. And that’s just what I did on a recent holiday over on North Stradbroke Island (off the coast of Brisbane).
We stayed in a house up at Point Lookout for a week, which gave us lots of time to explore the island including the famous gorge walk, Amity Point, plus taking the Jeep through some of the inland tracks, around Brown Lake, and onto Main Beach. The photos are a varied collection of different sights and landscapes, plus the odd wildlife shot including kangaroos, birds and a whale.
From the ‘Straddie’ website:
North Stradbroke Island covers an area of 275.2km2. It’s the world’s second largest sand island; in fact, it consists almost entirely of sand, with rocky outcrops at Point Lookout and small outcrops of sandstone at Dunwich. Although it comprises almost entirely of sand, North Stradbroke Island exhibits a wide range of habitats, each supporting its own assortment of plants and animals. The most important habitats along the eastern, or ocean, side of the Island consist of open beaches, frontal dunes and the 18 Mile Swamp, together with a small area of rocky headland at Point Lookout. The western or Moreton Bay side of the Island is characterized by mangroves and tidal swamps. A series of lakes and lagoons occurs between the dunes, the most notable being Blue Lake (Karboora) and Brown Lake (Bummiera).
