Australia-NSW-Port Stephens

I thought I would take a break from posting on Italy to my recent trip over in New South Wales (NSW), Australia. Another reason is because I have not yet figured out on how to access my files including all the photos in my old iMac. My old iMac refuses to read any USBs or hard drives or even memory cards. I have no idea why and have tried all suggestions I can find on Apple support. For now, I am slowly transferring my files over on Dropbox and as you can imagine, it is gonna take a while with its uploading speed and limit. The post on the rest of Italy will be up soon I promise πŸ™‚ If you have any advice on the iMac issues, please leave a comment – much appreciated!

Australia-Victoria-Queenscliff & Point Lonsdale

I was looking through my photos and realised that I have taken TOO MANY photographs! But I am glad I did. They brought back memories, to those moments, that is why I love photography. Photos could tell stories and convey emotions that sometimes words could not.

About a year ago, two great friends of mine and myself took a day trip together to Queenscliff and Point Lonsdale. My friend, Crescens, drove us there. It took us about 1.5 hours if I remember correctly to reach the town centre of Queenscliff. Queenscliff is a small town on the Bellarine Peninsula in Southern Victoria, Australia. It is about 100 km South of Melbourne, where we live. It was indeed a small town but very beautiful. We had lunch at the harbour and it was tranquil. Point Lonsdale is the coastal township on the Bellarine Peninsula, only about 4 km west of Queenscliff and so we passed by before we head back to Melbourne. The beach was crowded – we went there on Easter Monday which is a public holiday here in Australia. There was many families, surfing, playing and just enjoying the day.

These are some of the photos taken during the trip! All photographs were taken using Nikon D7000 equipped with a Sigma wide-angle lens, 10-20mm, f4-5.6. They were also edited using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.

Thank God for that beautiful day! It was a really good break for us from our busy working lives. We had such a blessed time and very thankful for it. The highlight for me was when we were at the beach at Point Lonsdale, just sitting, looking at the ocean and listening to the sound of waves. It was pure relaxation and enjoyment. We sat there for a while. I loved it very much!

If you are in Melbourne, go visit both places for a day trip! I hope you will enjoy them as much as I did πŸ™‚
