I have been enjoying photographing the Lemurs at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. They live in a very large aviary enclosure with lots of trees to explore. I decided to “employ” one of them to photography our budgies. Snowy is a bit coy in front of the camera as you can see while Ralphie can take it or leave it.

I like to photograph the local birdlife and landscapes in our region. I was brought up on a diet of blackbirds and robins back in the UK, but now I regularly see amazing birds like the colourful rainbow lorikeet, a not too distant cousin to the budgies above. The Gold Coast city is a long coastal strip of over 50km of beautiful beaches, backed by a sub-tropical rainforest in the hinterland. Drive less than 30 minutes to find the green behind the gold.

Just across the Queensland border into northern New South Wales, from left to right the “Giant’s Causeway” at Fingal Heads (the namesake of the “real” Giant’s Causeway on the north Antrim Coast of Northern Ireland, my home country), the rolling hills near Stoker’s Siding looking North West and the view to the south west of Mt. Warning, the top of which is the first area in mainland Australia to see the rising sun.
