An old photographer and his dog trying to find what turns a photograph into a worthwhile picture. Perhaps try to take a worthwhile photograph in the first place? The digital darkroom is a creative, fascinating place. If only I could learn to use it and the cameras I have to best effect… I love “mucking around”, as you can see!

Now, you know all my stuff is Copyright If you try and pinch any of it, I’ll jump through your screen and rip your bloody arms off!

    Hi George if this was taken out of your taxi window then you are skiving from work….absolutely beautiful!!

  • G’day Kate!
    Now, if they gave me a nice 4WD taxi, I’d let the tyres down to 10psi and go for a cruise along the beach. Some are designated NO 4WD, which this one may be. Now and then, I do get some time off. Thanks muchly for visiting and adding this picture to your favourites! :)george

  • G’day gail!
    Thanks for favouriting this sunny strip of sand – much appreciated! The South Coast has got a few things going for it too. So does our whole coastal area. So does the bush. So does the Outback. So does the whole flamin’ country for that matter! I need to go and photograph it all!!! :)george

    Pretty damn brilliant by George! :-)

  • Thanks Enivea! The smoke from bushfires during this sunset gave the whole area an orange glow and this could be a one-off scene. There are some seagull shots from this area somewhere in my gallery – “Gull lovers Travels” if I recall….I’ll have to get things better sorted on my home page. Thanks for the fave too – muchly appreciated! :)george

    That evening produced some great silhouettes!! Another beauty George- shame it took smoke from the fires to enhance the scene.

  • G’day Rosalie!
    Many happy memories from that visit! To do this beach and the general area justice, one would have to return there time and time again. To get some sunrise pics. With some nice clouds. To get some more sunset pics – with some nice clouds. Some specially selected soaring silhouetted seagull shots. Some sand and wading seagulls and surf shots. The scene changes from day to day and the area needs to be explored more fully. I’d love a return visit one day! :)george

    It is lovely and warm George! I wish I was there enjoying the sun in the warm sand on the beach.
    Beautiful shot!

  • G’day Thordis!
    Glad you like this sunny beach scene. Now, it’s supposed to be Summer here, but it’s been the coldest start for over 40 years! Cold, raining, I’ve got the heater on! So much for Global Warming! :)george
