When things don’t go to  plan, slow down, observe, let the story come to you. Weather-wise, the week has been contrary. How do I get a great photo when the eastern horizon clearly isn’t fitting in with my hoped for

Monday!   Good Morning, Monday. How do you feel at the start of the week? Glad to be alive? Jumping into your week or ‘Hell, here comes another one?’ I’m sure we’d all be bored if we just got to

Hello Monday, means rain bucketing at 05:00, continuing at 05:20. Maybe I’ll miss my walk this morning. Beach life often enough means rainy mornings though we don’t like to advertise too much, the truth is Mother Nature rules. I busy

Waking Up Coolum Beach – Wed 23 May 2018

Not another day living in the glorious Queensland paradise of Coolum Beach? Does it ever get boring? No. Every morning is like a blank canvas, sometimes I think, not another photograph of sunrise! But as soon as the light changes
