I love Cairns, well probably not Cairns itself so much but everywhere else that is near Cairns. Well except for the crocs that is. I went to Cairns in October and I still haven’t really done anything with any of the shots until now.

It is an absolutely beautiful place, the amazing blue ocean, green rain forests, palm trees on the beaches.You just feel so calm, relaxed and peaceful. It’s just a shame that you really can’t swim there, between the crocs and the jelly fish there’s not much hope.

I can’t wait to go back there, I don’t know when that will be but I know that it is definately one place that I want to go back to as soon as I can.

Here is one of my shots that I have finished that was taken over at Green Island. It’s a tiny little island that you can walk around in under 30 mins but I loved it. There is all this driftwood everywhere on the beach and it makes for a lot of really cool shots. Well I think it’s cool anyway.

I think this is one of my favourite shots from my trip.

    Wow Andrea. That is a really cool shot. Love the sky, love those lines created by the rocks and I love the way the tree reaches out into the sky. :-)


  • Tony Middleton

    Cool shot Andrea – FNQ is an amazing and diverse region, I also love it so I can completely understand your desires to return there… you are not the only one :)

    Thanks Jamie, appreciate your comment. I really like this shot, I am pretty chuffed with it. I’ve got some more to come yet so hopefully you like them too.

  • Scott Cranston

    Great sky – really interesting shot. Love the tree.

    • Andrea Green

      Thanks Scott, there is a lot of really interesting stuff there to photograph and when a cyclone hits a lot of it moves so you can go back and have totally different things there to shoot. I think it’s really cool.

    Nice shot there Andrea and good use of teh Polariser. It is very easy to over do a polariser, but this one is just right!
