This structure at Bombo Headland is also referred to as ‘The Toothbrush’ by locals.

This image was captured looking across the beach and the lagoon, filled by nearby Spring Creek.

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.
