A view of Surfers Paradise taken Waist Deep in the Nerang River. We arrived with the Sun high in the sky so I had a look for a new approach/angle to add to my Surfers Paradise collection.
A perfect Summer’s Day.
Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast.

    sheesh Derek ! there are sharks in there!!! Real ones with fins, not the two legged ones.[daughter had one swimming along her road near her house in the floods in Brisbane …] oh lovely pic though did you get a sausage today??

  • This was yesterday afternoon around 5pm and I have caught small sharks just up near the Starboard marker before.
    I’ll skip the Photography today – too many people, hard to find a car park etc etc etc. Not sure on the Fireworks though.

    Worth the wet boardies! And the (almost) lost thong…..this turned out nicely Derek.

  • Stacked ND’s did give it that Polariser effect. Maybe stand out here one night(tonight the tide would have been perfect….)

    I mean flip-flop…..

  • Boardies might have been a bit of a give away.
