Mangrove tree, Redland Bay

Mangrove, 5/4/13

Pictured as we returned to the mainland from Stradbroke Island: that’s it on the horizon. I like this shot for the way the sea evokes a snowy moor in Yorkshire in January, or possibly silver foil?

Point Lookout

Point Lookout, 4/4/13

This headland sits at the north-eastern corner of Stradbroke Island and lives up to its name, at least, if the sea is what you want to look at. So named by Captain James Cook on 17th May 1770, who presumably did need to see what was going on out there now and again. Clare follows his example, nearly 243 years later.

Storm, Stradbroke Island, 3/4/13

This particular one didn’t hit Point Lookout (where we reside) although one did come along later in the evening.

Clare’s, to be exact: imprinted on the sand of Home Beach, North Stradbroke Island.
