Taken at Avalon Beach just outside Geelong in Victoria, Australia. The beach lies on the north side of Corio Bay and faces due south. This natural canal leads into one of the many tidal sand flats which extend out into the bay and are exposed at low tide.

    What a gorgeous place Christine!…I know your heart is in Scotland but this is so pretty!!, I absolutely loved Australia when I was there, it was so different to what I had experienced and the seas seemed to be so blue…beautiful work!!

  • Thank for both your comment and the fave Kate. You’re right, my heart is in Scotland, but as the old saying goes, I have a foot in each country, so I do love Australia as well. Unfortunately though, we have a harsher climate out here and don’t get much of that beautiful soft light that I love.
