The best thing I like about landscape/nature photography is to witness the amazing shift change occurs in the nature. Be part of it.

    This is drop dead gorgeous. Love the texture and the colours.

  • Thanks heaps for liking it Christina! There were many photographers could be up to 10 taking shots down the beach. Surprisingly no one bothered to walk up where I was. I guess the sunrise colour probably would make up for any shots but I felt I needed to add bit more.
