One of the fantastic things about Australia is the number of top quality cafes and restaurants that offer a great view of the water while you relax and satisfy the cravings.
Soaking up the peaceful, watery view adds a great deal to the enjoyment.

Taken at Lilydale Lake last night.
One of the more intense sunsets I have seen.
Just when you think the colour is done, it sometimes erupts just like this!
This post is also to show something I am #grateful for, because Paula +Art through the Aperture Photographyโ€‹โ€‹ asked me to.
There is too much pain and suffering in the world lately.
We need to refocus on the good, positive and uplifting moments every day to try and win the mind (and world) battle. ๏ปฟ

After a dismal, wet day there was a settling of the weather.
A walk along one of the beaches at Blairgowrie produced this stunning sunset, almost as if to remind us to look for the colour in every day.
So unexpected, but so enjoyable ๐Ÿ˜Š๏ปฟ
One from a quiet weekend away late last year. ๏ปฟ

I was so lucky to live this experience.
I'd come with great friends to Cathedral Rocks. The idea was to shoot the Milky Way and then wait for sunrise.
I couldn't get into the shooting so sat and waited for what turned out to be a superb sunrise.
Watching this man perform his own little 'dance' was the icing on the cake :)
Kiama, on the east coast of Australia, south of Sydney is a gem of a location.

Russell Falls
Mt Field National Park, Tasmania
I have admired these ย beautiful falls many times over the years. No matter how much (or, in this case how little) water is flowing over the rocks, it is always a delight to sit, observe, listen and admire. Visit, if you ever get the opportunity.

Balnarring Groyne
A sunrise hunt yesterday morning proved fruitless for colour. The bonus however was the opportunity to investigate several groynes spaced along the beach and play with some long exposures. I really like the soft, almost ghostly mood to the image.

For those of you like +Mike Disburyโ€‹โ€‹ and +Anna Ryndakโ€‹โ€‹ who were intrigued by the Tiny Planet FX app image I posted recently, this is the original image.
Opposite the Wilderness Railway Station at Strahan is this quite impressive old wharf. Some really great texture and colours in the remaining pylons.๏ปฟ

Money Laundering
After track work many trainers float the racehorses down to the beach for a swim and roll in the sand.
It added some action and colour to my ย sunrise hunt this morning.
And the little 15 week old Shepherd was an extra cute surprise ;-)

Liffey Falls
Liffey Falls State Reserve lies on the Western Tiers in northern Tasmania.
This image is from my most recent visit to Liffey Falls 2 weeks ago. I've been lucky enough to visit several times over the last 30 or so years. It is a place to sit and spend time just enjoying and contemplating.

This is the least amount of water I have ever seen there.ย 
While we were in north west Tasmania, many extensive bushfires were raging out of control. Extremely dry conditions due to very low rainfall was a main cause.

The up side of less water was that we could cross to the far side. From there, we discovered this lovely reflection.ย 

Low volume of water, but still one of my favourite waterfalls.
