This lone early morning surfer is paddling out into the Pacific Ocean, hoping to catch a good wave.

Surfing is a popular sport and recreational activity for those who live along the Australian coast.

Captured at Cronulla, NSW – a famous Australian beach south of Sydney.

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.
