Gold Coast nights part 1

A mix of images of the shining lights of Gold Coast during (very) warm summer nights….absolutely LOVE this place

All images handheld (due to checked luggage weight allowance forcing me to choose between bringing a 3kg tripod OR 3kg of summer dresses and bikinis to Australia, ha! :D ) with Canon 6D + Sigma ART 24-105mm f/4 @12800 ISO


Young and free as QLD

A glimpse from a little walk on a tropical beach with hardly any people, during a gently overcast sunset…it makes you feel so free and helps reconnecting with the majestic yet simple beauty of nature :)

This is Surfers Paradise, Queensland!


A breeze of fresh Pacific Ocean air

Surfers Paradise beachSURFERS PARADISE, AUSTRALIA – The sand between your toes, a tropical sky above your head, pacific ocean’s waves crashing next to you and a wide endless empty beach to walk on for hours…… breathe it all in!

Pack wisely, you are gonna need more gigabytes than you think :P

Loving Nature: Araliya beauty

White frangipani blooms

QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA – Missing these beautiful trees from Surfers Paradise and their lovely tropical scent now that I am back in the Northern Hemisphere.  I went on a serious chase to take all the possible pics of them and these are my favorite. Also, their petals are soft as a cloud :) Just seeing them makes me happy… I hope you are gonna share this feeling. Call them frangipani, plumeria or araliya…. they are just the best to me :) Which ones do you prefer, the pink or the white version? Enjoy the pics xx
