winter at the beach

 It was a chilly but sunny day today and I was lucky enough to have some time to wander along the beach.
 The clouds were amazing & I love how they kind of match the foaming of the waves.

I haven't joined in with weekly stills for a little while. There have been school holidays, a bit of time away and some other distractions....so here are some stills from the last few weeks..

:: early morning activity at a marina in Cairns
:: sugar cane, photographed as we drove by
:: late afternoon shadows & beautifully calm water
:: mountainous views & fields of sugarcane
:: a wading bird at the Cairns botanical gardens

a photo an hour

Every month for the last 3 years or so, I have participated in 'ten on ten', which is a photo project where on the tenth day of each month you take a photo every hour (or so) for ten hours. The idea is to look for beauty in an ordinary day. I love doing it!
Well, this month, I didn't do it. I chose not to for a few reasons but I did it today instead. A ten on seventeen if you like :)

Today was an ordinary sunny winter's day.

This is what my seventeenth looked like, starting with a view of the morning from the bathroom window.

On the last morning of our little getaway we got up early to watch this!
I always find a sunrise so beautiful. Amazing to witness the beginning of a new day.
