A Photo Every Day from the Sunshine Coast - Australia

The Glasshouses
1 of 6 - The Approach

This used to be the highway between Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast, and I'm nervous as the first glimpse of mountain appears over the crest, framed by what must be far too many power lines to service the Glasshouse communities.

I'm nervous because I've tried this many times before. I've tried to photograph the mountains, but they have their ways of hiding. On a clear day, they'll sit below the only cloud, at sunrise, they'll turn their backs to me, at sunset they'll hide in the haze.

Today I'm going to have one more try! (I didn't succeed entirely, but at least I have something to go on.)

The Glasshouses have appeared looming in the background of my photos many times during the past few years, which is where they prefer to be I think.

We are presently on the road again without a reliable internet facility so this blog is being updated by a machine. You can keep tabs on our wherabouts here!

YES! I am mentally punching the air.

It's good that you won't give up. I really like this photo with the road and the mountains in the background.

Julie said...

Yes, the road is good. Hard to believe it is termed a highway.

Wonder why they are called Glass House ... from memory something to do with Sir Joseph Banks or maybe his captain ...

I'm looking forward to your pictures!

I'd love to run on this road. Looks so promising.
