While I was walking on the shore of this still lake, the sun suddenly shone through a break in the clouds. The clouds and sun can be seen reflected in the water.

This image was capture at The Back Lake, also known as Merimbula Lagoon, at Merimbula near Mirador, NSW, Australia.

Canon 400D.

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.
