A Photo Every Day from the Sunshine Coast - Australia

Thursday, 3 April 2008


A lone casuarina, having battled for so long and so improbably in the middle of the beach, is about to give up the fight!

I really love this part of the world. Is this the place where a river meets the sea with many huge sandbags to slow the erosion ?
If I am right, there should be an island with a funny name, nearby. Something like, Mad Woman Island?

You are spot on the money!

Old Woman Island is a little to the left and out of frame, as are the huge sandbags.

I'll have to get out there again soon. I thought at first I would have trouble finding a photo a day, but at the moment I'm not sure that I'll live long enough to describe the place!

Well, you're doing a mighty fine job of it so far. Coolum, Alex Headland and stuff.
How about a shot from Mudjimbahh, (can't spell it) but looking back down the coast towards your today's shot.
God's own country, I say. Queensland has a stunning coastline !
And then, there's Eumundi. They make ripper beer there.
Keep up the good work, it's right at your doorstep.

Aw, no more shade on the beach! Dramatic shot.

That's a beautiful and really striking picture.

Almost looks like a desert oasis with mirage on the portal pic.

That poor old tree.
That beach looks soooo good - I'm starting to feel another beach break coming on!

Bitingmidge, It's my first visit to your blog, and I've very much enjoyed strolling through your photos and getting a taste for the Sunshine Coast. When I saw the title in the portal I thought the photos would depict an area of British Columbia also known by that name. Your writing is fabulous and I've laughed out loud a couple times (e.g. Malibu Hotel name origin). I can tell we'll get on famously. Best to you in this new venture, and welcome to the City Daily Photo family!
