I wish it was mine! Just one of the many beautiful boats moored at the mariner tucked away on beautiful Lake Macquarie at Swansea NSW Australia … our best kept secret. The sun was slowly setting as I wandered the shores waiting for the right time … that special time that sunset brings. All was still, just a few friendly ducks and a couple of pelicans to keep me company … in the distance I could hear the chorus of Christmas carols from the Swansea channel at the other end of town. This boat seemed perfectly placed amongst that stillness and subtle pastel colour of this magic moment in time. I’m so lucky that I’m free to capture this in camera … to share with you … and to dream!
