Spring is in the air, temperatures are on the way up, water temp is increasing, the suns glow looks more golden, everything and everyone looks happier.

This was taken up at Main Beach on the Gold Coast QLD Australia. Out front of the Sheraton Hotel and Lifeguard Tower # 41. There is something about the beach, sand dunes and lifeguard towers that appeals to me as a subject. I may turn this into a series if i can find enough towers with good surrounds.

Slight HDR in this, and in all this is a panorama compiled from 3 images x 3 exposures each. 9 shots in total.

Canon EOS 450D
Canon EF-S 15-85mm Lens

9 images treated in Photomatix
3 images then stitched in PS CS5

Kept it as natural as it appeared to me on the morning of 01 / 09 / 2011
