As I get time I'll add a few shots of Fingal Head, just over the Queensland/New South Wales border.

Here's a shot looking south ...

Any reason why you went home, MA? You're posting some beautiful views.

Yeh ... I lived by beaches like this for many years ... you don't appreciate them after awhile. It's better to visit them once in awhile and then go home. That and I can't earn money on the beach :shrug: And having sex on the beach is dicey too. :headslap: And I get sunburnt. :wall-an: And my bike tyres sink in the sand :rolleyes:

Is that enough reasons? Or should I keep going? :)

I suppose. But it beats parking lots, ugly office carpeting and strip malls by any measure I can think of. As for sex on the beach, at least you aren't in a Middle Eastern country...

Very nice! I like the way that the sandy beach disappears into the horizon and the tree gives it depth

Horribly difficult lighting to work with on this one :headslap: The black rocks were in deep shadow and I was semi shooting towards the low, morning sun but using HDR and lots of post processing I think I've sort of saved this one.
