I often stand in awe and admire the beauty of God’s Creation. The colours, textures, tones and shapes,especially the way the light falls and reflects, thus revealing things often overlooked, particularly during the grandeur of a sunrise or sunset, or the spectacle of a rainbow.
I really just want to try and capture and share some of what I see as “The Creator’s Handiwork”.

    This has got me totally intrigued Phil. It is obviously a place of great interest. I am amazed at the white birds (although I am unsure of what they are and why they tilt inwards) and I wonder what their significance (and that of the round structures) is…. no doubt there is a great story behind this.
    I love the light and wonderful colours here ~ and I am a total lover of those palms….

  • Thanks Sharon for your lovely comments and interest. This link has a number of images both near present day and historic. Eastern Beach has been a very popular central swimming spot for a long time both as a bay beach and then when they built the enclosures. The birds are tilted in a little but may look more so, because of the POV, shooting up at them and the fountain to incorporate the staircase.
