Australia-NSW-Sydney & Cockatoo Island

This is my third and last post on my short trip to Sydney over the Easter break in April.

My friend, Jasmine and I were enjoying the city of Sydney on a fine Sunday. It was a beautiful day filled with sunshine (unlike now…). Then on Monday, a few of us headed to Cockatoo Island for the 19th Biennale of Sydney. You might have read something about this festival on my previous post – My Very First Photo Challenge.

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 🙂
