What kind of adventure am I looking for in Queensland?


Yes of course, a beautiful sunset would definitely be a nice way to start an adventure in Queensland. Maybe I should start exploring a hidden forest trail,  kayaking along a gorgeous coastline for the first time with fresh eyes, or snorkeling through some colorful coral beds filled with amazing tropical fish. Perhaps later in the evening I might want to try some local food at any of the popular foodie spots along the Sunshine Coast . I’m not afraid to try out a ‘local’ favorite dish or even something really exotic as long as I have a nice cool beverage or locally brewed beer to enjoy with my dinner.







I might just want to spend the day photographing local attractions or find some amazing vistas points. I’m the type of guy that really gets into discovering exciting places to explore, and capturing images with my own spin and visual storytelling. Usually when I’m visiting a scene for the first time, I’m interested in finding something genuine to portray: including the people, their culture, or how they try to live life to its fullest, and not just for the weekend. I know I know that I’ll find something dynamic and unusual to present like these funny animal pics . I’m hoping to explore the Sunshine Coast and capture the real essence and unique lifestyle of this area, and I know that it will be a fun challenge. Following are some candid photos I took recently that immediately drew my attention, this is the type of image that already creates its own story and human interest without any words.









I’m sure the beaches are quite spectacular here and the marine life is out of this world, I’m hoping to find a lot of turtles and other interesting sea life. I mean, isn’t the Great Barrier Reef one of the primary reasons to visit Queensland, along with all the fun water recreational activities? I definitely want to explore all forms of water activities and enjoy what most of the locals have at their fingertips everyday.




Yes, I’m really excited about all the unlimited choices: either go surfing, dive the barrier reef,  or explore some of the lush landscape and outback. I know that it will be exceptional because this magical region of Australia offers the best of all travel destinations and escape.

So the only thing I’m wondering now is…..when can I go already? My suitcase is packed and ready to go! It will be an adventure of a lifetime and I promise to take some incredible photos along with some amazing stories to tell. Lets hope fingers crossed, that I get it because it is going to be epic!

    Oh I hope you enjoy Queensland. I visited Sydney several years ago and it was spectacular but too short a visit. I wish my photos had done the place justice but there was too much to see and do.
