Surfers Paradise – Gold Coast – Queensland – Australia

Canon EOS 450D – Canon EFS Lens 15-85mm

The moon rising over Surfers Paradise last wekk. Some sensational reflections, little chill in the air and a classic moon rise. Such a great spot to captuer Surfers from, just in behing the Gold Coast Art Centre.

To see the detail in this ….. why not view it ENORMOUS

Hope you like it :-)

Had to revert back to the trusty 450D , left home with 2 reasonably flat batteries for the new toy …….. :-(

    Never underestimate the trusty “old” toy! What a beautiful shot, Maxwell. Wonderful colours and those reflections are amazing!

  • It’s only been a couple of months since i replaced it Mieke …. and i was fumbling around for the settings, couldn’t find a thing. Thank you very much for your kind words, they are really appreciated :-)
