Diamond Bay, Sorrento, Victoria

In Mornington Peninsula's Sorrento, Diamond Bay Road leads to a small car park behind the beach which is accessed from a walking track and steep staircase.

Diamond Bay, named after the Diamond jubilee of Queen Victoria, is a popular family beach surrounded by impressive sandstone cliffs. The site is a popular location for surf fishing as it is slightly more protected than other areas of the coast with extensive rock platforms.

To add to its already stellar personality and help serve as an inviting beach, the water in the bay is a clear shade of blue.

Story Bridge Lights

Brisbane's iconic Story Bridge was illuminated yellow for the majority of the 75 years since it was built.

For a few years now, the bridge has been illuminated with different colours. Typically each lighting display on the bridge is to commemorate a special day in history, raise awareness for charities and showcase upcoming events. Here are the most common displays:


One of the vast array of colours used during the Brisbane Festival fireworks.

Purple (charities such as Bravehearts Day, Epilepsy awareness Purple Day or Elder Abuse Day)

Rainbow for any LGBTI causes.

Green for Australia Day and any number of Australian sporting events or causes.

Orange for "Colour the World Orange Day", a cause for nerve pain awareness.


Red for "Red Bow Day" (the annual fundraising campaign for Muscular Dystrophy Queensland)

Super Moon

I didn't have a chance to get out and shoot the Super Moon this year, so here are a few shots from last year. These were taken as the sun set at Wellington Point Jetty.

GRATITUDE: A Belated Thanksgiving Post.

The 19th November marked 7 years since my car accident, which has challenged my life in so many ways.
If I had to pick the biggest thing that I have learned over the last 7 years, it would be that living in GRATITUDE every day is incredibly powerful and life changing. My focus has been not looking back on the past, not focusing on what was or could have been, but rather focusing on the blessings in my life on a daily basis. I cannot adequately convey the benefits that daily gratitude has had on my life.

2016 has been a year of enormous change in my own life and for us as a family. We have had huge breakthrough in reconciliation with my oldest son, who is now back in our lives but sadly his marriage has broken down. 4 weeks ago, we were given court ordered time with our 4 grandchildren on a weekly basis which has been wonderful! All of this has been a huge answer to our constant prayers!

"Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation." ~ Brian Tracy

"Yesterday's the past, tomorrow's the future, but today is a gift. That's why it's called the present." ~ Bill Keane

"Gratitude is the inward feeling of kindness received. Thankfulness is the natural impulse to express that feeling. Thanksgiving is the following of that impulse." ~ Henry Van Dyke Read

"Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow." ~ Melody Beattie

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend." ~ Melody Beattie

Tweed Beauty

Earlier this year, Michael & I drove down to the Tweed Valley region of the far Northern NSW to visit friends. We enjoyed a lovely lunch, and were then treated to a "local's" guided tour of the area throughout the Tweed Range, which is part of the Great Dividing Range.

We explored the World Heritage wilderness of the Tweed Region, including quiet streams, the well known Tweed River, and charming little villages.

The Tweed River weaves its way from the coast, through the Northern Rivers region...

I could have sat here all day... The vista was breathtaking and incredibly serene.

As the sun began to set, it was difficult to decide where to stay...

The highest peak in the distance is the distinctive Mount Warning.

As the sun set, the sky was stunning against the lush green grass...

Next time, I plan to shoot sunset over the Tweed River. The entire area is absolutely gorgeous and definitely worth a few more day trips!

How often do you head out and surround yourself with nature??
