Sunrise on Stradbroke Island

Every sunrise is a gift to start the new day
Each one being unique in its own way
The moon has gone to bed and all the stars are sleeping
While every day brings a new begining
To start anew

Stradbroke Island again. This time we (or myself and one volunteer) were up to witness the sunrise everday for 10 days straight so I took the opportunity to get a picture of sunrise and sunset every morning and evening. I also managed to get some artistic shots in so to speak.

The weather this trip was much better than that of previous trips (which is a blessing) as we were walking the beach counting birds for the next study. So once again I took this opportunity to take the camera along and managed a few pics - I couldn't put them all up so i chose the Pied Oystercatcher and the Silver Gull who managed to get a Ghost Crab for breakfast.

On this trip there were also Crested Terns in hundreds along with Little Terns feeding on the bait fish.

Will leave with a quote from Alice Walker - In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they're still beautiful.

Well hope you like the pics and untill next time take care
