[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These girls were up early (6am) to watch the sunrise.

Heron Island, located 72 km northeast of Gladstone and 539 km north of Brisbane, is an evergreen coral cay surrounded by 24 hectares of coral reef at the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef.

Heron Island is named after the herons which are part of the rich bird life that inhabits the island. The island is also home to flocks of mutton birds and terns.
Visitors to the island can experience the beauty of the Barrier Reef far removed from the impact of modern civilisation. Heron Island is a World Heritage-Listed Marine National Park, all flora and fauna is protected, so the island is a nature lover's paradise with the emphasis on enjoying natural beauty. A vacation here replaces stress with a sense of adventure and your days are filled with discovery.

Fantastic cloud formation Tim, I like your composition here, nicely balanced. and the colours are great.

I wonderful sight.


Hi Tim,

nice composition ,with great colours.
Great catch.

Hi Tim
Somebody ignited the sky on that morning. The composition is very artistic, with the three girls sitting off center. The colors are marvelous. I love the three series of foot tracks in the sand. If the girls were early, I guess the photographer was early too.(LOL)
Bravo Tim


Hi Tim,
Excellent example of minimalism. Great coposition and fine colours. This is a better picture on TL of a sunset. Everything but boring :-)

Nice. Really not much I can say - composition, colours, light, all delivered very nicely indeed.

A little touch of ghosting around the girls and the shoreline to their right, but it's minor.


Absolutely great composition....
It's rare to see some peoples in your productions...here they add perspective to this wonderful shot....woooow!!!
Bravo Tim...encore et encore....

  • Great
