G’day all, my name is Melinda but my mates call me Mel, so feel free. I live by the beach in Elwood, Victoria, Australia. I contribute to a few charities as a Photojournalist, namely HEAL Africa in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Any of my Africa stuff’s profits go to them. So far the sales have bought 7 operations and heaps more so thanks for everyone’s support. I also take a mean beach shot (well try to).

    Ahh, looks like you were on the south side of the stairs…..these rocks have only appeared since the big storms last year, so I don’t know this part…..we usually go to the north side.

    Like the rushing water and the sky is fabulous!
