Palm Cove is one of the northern beaches of Cairns about 30 km north of the city center. The community has quite laid back feeling thanks to it's small size, but it still has wide selection of services for tourists. This shot was taken from the jetty, which is one of the region's most popular fishing spots.

Fine natural scene of Palm Cove, with the unusual rocks jutting up from the sand, and dense forested backdrop.
Cairns is a favorite base-camp for me to go on snorkeling boat trips to the Great Barrier Reef. If only it was closer to California....
Thanks for sharing,
PS: The 'contrast' from my Arizona storm approaching was actually low but natural due to the dense clouds covering the sun. HDR processing would increase the color saturation but then look less natural?

Another interesting and attractive beach!
The color of the water is not all that blue & green, but still I like it!
There's no white sand, but I do enjoy it the way it looks too!
TFS - congrats,

this one has a more rustic type of feeling to it, even though its a sweet private looking beach.
Wouldn't want the waves to crash me up against those sharp rocks!
this area looks very similar to many places in Hawaii.

Hope you're adjusting back to working life ok. This is such a beautiful spot, so untouched and pretty wild looking. I love the jade rocks and can't help thinking how great they'd be in a slow exposure one morning or evening. You did really well with the overcast skies and light. Another place that looks lovely for a swim, although a little dangerous with those rocks there.
Have a good weekend

I love the colours and feeling of isolation in this image. The sky is subtle in colour and texture contrasting with the orange tinged beach - very nice indeed.
Kind Regards, Ann
