Early one cloudy morning 'Heron island'

Heron Island is a coral cay, part of the Capricorn Group, in the southern Great Barrier Reef, in the Coral Sea, off the east coast of Queensland, Australia. The island, with an area of 42 ac (17 ha), is thickly wooded, though tourism has led to some erosion, and it lies within a lagoon 12 sq mi (31 sq km) in area. It is part of Capricornia Marine Park and is a wildlife sanctuary, accessible by launch from Gladstone, 48 mi (77 km) southwest.During the 1920s, Heron supported a sea-turtle industry, but turtle catching is now illegal.

Hi Tim,
Glad to see fellow southern hemispherians :) Fantastic point of view here, it gives a really nice feeling of vast open space and distance. The colours are magnificent despite the heavy cloud cover. Excellent composition also with the low placed horizon; the hint of trees add a point of interest. Interesting notes, I actually have never been any further north in QLD than the Gold Coast and am yet to visit the Reef. Thanks for sharing.

Very good contrast. The composition and the colours are excellent and very interesting weather.
Best wishes,

Awsome sky capture Tim, very dramatic.

regards Mark :)

Bonjour Tim,
I love you as we present this beach paradise. The darkest cloud in the foreground which gives hope that the day will eventually be beautiful. A long perceptive of this landscape with curved and on the right side is a natural by vegetation. This makes me dream, I'm walking. Ta interesting note on the protection of this place.

Those are some wicked clouds there Tim! Just like the ones hanging over us right now! It's stormy here in Texas! Nice details, good straight horizon! I love the blues and pinks in this. Love this part of the world!

Hi Tim,
Stunning and dramatic capture of the beach and the weather! Great light your New Zealand coast pictures are excellent!

Hi Tim, great landscape with fantastic swky and splendid natural colors, very well done, ciao Silvio
