Photographer's Note

Kirra Beach, Southern Gold Coast

This photo was taken about 800m from the border between the Australian states of Queensland and New South Wales. Daylight savings meant that NSW is one hour ahead of Queensland so it was 7pm in QLD and 8pm in NSW (two hours in the one photo!).

The scene looks south along Coolangatta beach and to Greenmount Headland and point danger in the distance. It shows some of the protected dune habitats along the shoreline which are fenced to prevent erosion. I had taken about 20 photos along the beach, but unfortunately I did not have my tripod.

Directly behind me, about 20km to the north is the towering skyline of Surfers Paradise - seemingly floating on top of the water. If you are ever in the area I can recommend the North Kirra Surf-lifesavers club for a great lunch!
