Cloudy Long Island Beaches

It rained on and off during the morning while we there at Gilgo, Captree, Jones and Robert Moses. I didn’t see many shorebirds. It was fun watching the terns fish and squabble. It’s been ages since I went to the shore and we enjoyed the trip and picnic.

The clouds add atmosphere. I love processing the RAW images in Lightroom to reveal what I saw that the camera could not capture. It’s like magic. The last two are by Marc.

Sydney Bays

7th posting of photographs of Sydney August, 2015

Of course, the Sydney Opera house can’t be missed. The next few photos were taken at places we stayed at. We paid a visit to Bronte Beach, The Royal National Park, and Manly where we stayed at Warren and Heather’s. I selected what I think represents the highlights.

The many bays, waterways, and beaches in Sydney are all beautiful. The beaches are not crowded. Admittedly, I was there in winter, but winter is Sydney is like summer. We saw Rushcutters Bay, Double Bay, (stayed at these two locations), Elizabeth Bay, Middle Harbor, Farm Cove, Blackwattle Bay, Sydney Harbor, Bronte, Bondi Beach, Darling Point, Fisher Bay, Sandy Bay, Pearl Bay, Hunters Bay, Manly Cove, and more.

While walking along Balmoral Beach, Hunters Bay a sad note was a memorial plaque on a bench about a little girl. I am grateful to Warren (my second cousin) for showing us many of the best places to see in Sydney.
