North Stradbroke Island, Queensland

North Stradbroke Island is right on Brisbane's doorstep though it still has a laid back charm and old style beach holiday feel to it. It has a pristine natural beauty and there are no big resorts or the usual chain stores and fastfood joints. It is a popular holiday spot for Brisbane local's, particularly during school holidays and those who love camping, four-wheel driving and relaxing in nature. Point Lookout is located on the North Eastern side of the island and my favourite spot.

Beaches of the NSW Mid North Coast

Surfing, fishing, boating, swimming or just walking in quiet contemplation are all offered to both young and old residents of the coast. Day by day the beaches change with tides, seasons and weather. Sometimes you may be delighted by the sparkle of sun on waves; other times the skies may be moodily overcast. Always there will be inspirational light effects.

Religion is also a strong influence in many communities.

HDR Photography

High Dynamic Range photography (HDRI or HDR) is a technique used in photography to reproduce a greater dynamic range of luminosity than possible using standard photographic techniques. HDR images can represent a greater range of luminance levels found in real-world scenes, from direct sunlight to faint nebula. It is often achieved by capturing and then combining different exposures of the same subject matter through a built-for-purpose application. It's not everyone's taste, but I love it!
