Currumbin, Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia

Amazing colour was prevalent as soon as I reached the beach on this morning back in March and I couldn’t wait to set up for a shot. Grass was the first thing I saw (after the clouds) and thought it would suffice for a FG element. Turned out much better than I had hoped.
