The other weekend I went on a lovely Landscape Photography Tour in and around the Gold Coast. The tour was organised and run by the lovely Andrea at Photo Tour Experts.
The day started at 8am on Saturday, the sun was shining and the sky was blue, we couldn’t have wished for a more perfect day. 12 of us hopped into a big van, driven by Andrea, and headed out to Fingal Head for some amazing coastal scenery.
Next stop was near Murwillumbah, a long and winding road through some stunning hills brought us to a dilapidated old shed next to a field of cows.
A little further down the road we stopped at an organic farm and had lunch. I was introduced to these amazing Australian Native Finger Limes. They’re skinny like fingers but when you open them there looks to be hundreds of tiny green caviar looking balls which taste like lime.
From here we went to Springbrook National Park, Natural Bridge. Here we took photos of waterfalls and fungi.
Then we headed back to the Gold Coast for some marina, sunset and night light shots.
It was a fantastic day out, I learnt plenty of cool photography tricks and I met a bunch of lovely peoples.
Beautiful photos, love the colour of the falls. GC is my home but I am up in Darwin at the moment, cooking in the tropical heat, the photos reminded me of why we chose to live on the GC.
We use finger limes a lot in our cooking, great sprinkled over the top of seafood pasta!! Give it a go…how do you use them?
That was the first time I’d come across them. I bought some finger lime jam which is lovely; but, I thought either in a salad, on top of sushi or in a Corona would be nice. I wish they were in Coles.
I think you can really see your progression over the day. You started off good, and finished off great. That’s a brilliant day!
Thank you! Now I just have to keep practising 🙂
