A Photo Every Day from the Sunshine Coast - Australia

Pumicestone Passage
A week of the blues day one.

Today's City Daily Photo theme is "Passageway" and as usual I probably cheated a bit by taking the broadest definition I could find.
Pumicestone Passage is a thirty five kilometre long Marine Park and conservation area, which runs from Caloundra in the North, between Bribie Island and the mainland. For those with a boating intent, be warned that it is very shallow mostly and littered with shifting sand banks.
Of course this photograph doesn't quite take in it's full length, but it is a view from Golden Beach, looking South, with Bribie Island in the background.

Post Script: Bribie Island, as you will see in coming days, is a very low, very narrow strip at this its northern end, offering little protection to this shoreline should a tsunami make it to this side of the world.  One did of course, yesterday, in a benign but none the less sobering way drawing us closer to those suffering from the consequences of the earthquake in Chile just an ocean away.  Our thoughts are with them.

That's not cheating, that's creative.
