Standing in front of your dreams

Photographer girl aka me standing alone in front of the steps of the Opera House in Sydney

Shooting the Sydney Opera House with hardly any people there…. priceless !

I was seriously surprised of having the Opera House all for myself in this (extremely short) moment without any crowd.

The fact that there were approximately 500° C under the sunlight might have had something to do with it but to me this moment was just perfect :) SYDNEY I LOVE YOU

Moments in Burleigh Heads

Couple walking on the beach carrying surfboards

BURLEIGH HEADS, QUEENSLAND – We’ve been to Burleigh shortly after visiting Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary (heaps of koala/roo/wombat cuteness coming soon!) and stopped for a delayed lunch (aka berry cheesecake with vanilla icecream :D) and some beach photos :) It was around dusk and the sky opened up from the clouds for a little while, enough to get to enjoy the beauty of the place with a hint of blue sky. It’s a great vantage point to admire Gold Coast’s majestic skyscrapers in front of the ocean. Also, please bare with me while I am still completely obsessing over all the tropical flowers and plants, like the hibiscus and flame tree here… :)

Peacock Garden, wildlife beauty

GOLD COAST, AUSTRALIA – One of our days in Queensland we decided to go for a walk through a nice green area that we spotted from our balcony. We ended up discoverying it to be a community park with peacocks freely walking around and enjoying the sunlight shining through the many different (and pretty gorgeous) types of trees. So after all the wildlife photos I had the chance to take during these 3 (!) trips to Australia, the peacocks were a new and much appreciation addition to the collection of images :) I loved walking among them, they looked pretty friendly and relaxed…dunno if it is due to Peacock Life or rather to being ozzy :P

Sydney Royal Botanic Garden: part 1

Glorious golden light with sun shining behind a tree in Sydney Royal Botanics Gardens

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – Walking around the Royal Botanic Garden in Sydney at golden hour is so dreamy and interesting. You’ll see lots of local trees and plants that are not very commonly found overseas: from gum trees to bottlebrush, to huge ferns and special varieties of tropical palm trees from QLD, to the incredibly prehistoric-looking half-fallen tree below in the photos. The atmosphere is of course as laid back as you would expect it to be from an Australian city park :) I especially loved the contrast between the wild-looking nature and the skyscrapers in the background that seems to pop up all the time while walking along. Add to this the beautiful golden tones of a powerful ozzy sun (powerful even at dusk) and here it is :) My recipe for a traveller’s dream exploration of the city park ! xx
