Bird Pictures From The Nature Reserve

OFF FOR ANOTHER ADVENTURE … One day, I decided to drive somewhere I’d never been before, put on some walking shoes and headed off with no particular destination in mind, but to let the camera show me its magic.

What a treat to find a conservation and nature reserve only a few minutes drive away from home with the most prolific wildlife, bird-life and well kept gravel walking tracks, bush tracks and boardwalks.

The birds here took a liking to my car with the top down, the wagtails seemed to follow me along the timber fenceline, the bush turkeys were a little elusive, but a magpie was really friendly. Lucky I had my long Canon 100 – 400m lens with me.

We’re incredibly blessed in Australia, with councils, government bodies and local environmental agencies that really care about saving these glorious lake-lands and nature reserves for us to enjoy together.

Marina Mirage And Palazzo Versace

One of the nicest spots on the planet is where the fantastic Marina Mirage shopping center, Sheraton Mirage and Palazzo Versace are located in Seaworld Drive Mainbeach so I’ve pulled out a few of my favorites from a huge gallery of over 200 pictures taken in and around the Gold Coast.

Pictures include yachts in the marina (beautiful), the Max Brenner Chocolate Shop (yum), a sailing boat taking a trip on the water (what fun), having a meal on the dock (with a pretty girl), a model posing in Palazzo Versace (she’s gorgeous), relaxing by the pool (ahhh yes), a brightly coloured sunset overlooking parts of the gold coast (stunning), a couple birds (of the feathered variety), walking on the beach (just what the Gold Coast is all about) and a few more … enjoy!
