Sunset Capital of Australia

Sunset over harbour

I have been truly blessed to live in a wonderful place called Busselton which is about 21/2 hours drive from Perth the capital of Western Australia. We have been named as the sunset capital for our fantastic sunsets. Busselton is located on a north facing bay, so we have the opportunity to see both a sunrise and a sunset over the waters of Geographe Bay.         This was one I took the other night. People often say Continue reading Sunset Capital of Australia

Health Retreat Kununurra

I noticed something the other day, when we are away time flies, but for those at home life goes on at the same old pace. So sorry I haven’t posted more often or kept in touch as much as I normally would. I feel like I am on a health retreat, inside this beautiful bubble, but I know when others go away, I miss them and wish they would stay in touch. I wish I could bring each of you Continue reading Health Retreat Kununurra

Mindil Beach Markets

Everyone who has ever lived in or visited Darwin will tell you you have to go to Mindil Markets at least once. These Markets are an icon in Darwin, they are on Thursday night and Sunday night each week. They are traditional markets, plus fantastic live entertainment and a sunset to die for on the beach. They start around 4pm. The trick is to get there early or you will have a long walk from where you park. Once you Continue reading Mindil Beach Markets

Kakadu

Wow, what a busy couple of weeks. I thought stopping in Darwin to rest would be a good idea, but it seems there is always something on, but I am not complaining as I got to fulfill one of my dreams this week…..to visit Kakadu!!! We stayed at Cooinda and went on the Yellow River Cruise. You can see why it is called Yellow River.             We had previously flown over the falls in Kakadu Continue reading Kakadu

Road trip to Darwin

Well we are on the road again. We left home and had a few days in Perth. Enjoyed a beautiful sunrise and some of the native birds while we caught up with family before heading to Mt Newman.                             We camped out near Mt Magnet for the night before heading on to Mt Newman. The peace and tranquility as well as the beauty around us makes camping Continue reading Road trip to Darwin

Shooting sunsets and sunrises

            What makes a stunning sunset? I didn’t realise until one day someone gave me a magnet that said, “May you have enough clouds in your life to make a beautiful sunset.”               Yes clouds of the right sort can make or break a sunset. You are generally looking for light wispy clouds that cover a reasonable area. Does this mean you can’t shoot a sunset, without clouds? No, Continue reading Shooting sunsets and sunrises
