Storm clouds over Byron Bay

 on 


I took this photograph of very heavy rain clouds spreading over the ocean from Cape Byron at Byron Bay. According to charts Cape Byron is the most easterly point of the Australian mainland. The point is within a few minutes walk from the famous Byron Bay lighthouse.

Views from here are fantastic and it is a good spot for photography both at sunset and sunrise as the elevated position of the light house allows almost for 360deg views.

Sugar mill at Broadwater

 on 


On our way back from Queensland we were passing a little town called Broadwater, which is situated on the Richmond River south of Ballina. This is sugar cane country and the domineering feature of the landscape are the chimneys of the sugar mill. The mill started crushing sugar cane in 1881.

I have noticed that at entry point to the town it looks like the surrounding bush is equipped with these two smoking chimneys and that would make a better photo than the photograph of the mill itself. Just a little ECO visual humour.
