50 shades of blue

This is Main Beach at Point Lookout, which stretches for 28km down the eastern side of North Stradbroke Island in Queensland, Australia. Parts of Aquaman were filmed here, and the day I took this photo, filming was underway in South Gorge, which is below the rocks on the right hand side of the photo.

How’s the serenity?

Neptune’s necklace

Hormosira banksii, a seaweed native to New Zealand and Australia, growing in a New South Wales south coast rockpool. This seaweed is also known as also known as Neptune’s necklace, Neptune’s pearls and – my favourite name for it – bubbleweed.

The sea snails are Black Nerite Nerita atramentosa, commonly known as black periwinkles.

Moonrise over Great Oyster Bay, Swansea Tasmania

This photo of Great Oyster Bay was taken at Swansea, Tasmania, the day before we ventured over to the Freycinet Peninsula (seen here across the bay) for a hike down to iconic Wineglass Bay. Tasmania is a huge source of inspiration for my fantasy fiction writing, with its beautiful, fierce wilderness and even fiercer convict history.

Wrong way go back

This sign is in a massive area of hardened lava down the Chain of Craters Road in the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. It seemed so surreal, as well as giving a marker of just how much has been swallowed by the volcano.
