Smoke Gets in Your Eyes - Cleveland QLD Australia by 


The air was thick with smoke as I headed to Cleveland Point this afternoon. It is due to the terrible fires on North Stradbroke Island which have been burning for over a week now. The smoke is expected to worsen this evening when the wind direction changes. You cannot see Stradbroke Island at all from the mainland, its just wall of smoke in Moreton Bay. The firefighters must be exhausted by now, my thoughts and prayers are with the close knit community on Straddie.
Having said that, the smoke made for a pretty picture and I was lucky that this pelican was obliging.

    Hi Beth – This pelican is singing the blues over the smoke and fire that is playing havoc on the Island. Non the less, it is a terrific photo and so very well frammed up. Very nice photography.
