A re-make of My Happyness taken in April this year. I decided to have another go at this shot in post & although I like the first attemp, this one (to me) has more mood plus I just love that little tree. It would have to be one of the best spots in Moreton Bay with the right conditions.
Below in the comments section is a different tree & rock combo which is just next to this one.... Taken on the same morning. April 17th 2011.
Moreton Bay, stretching 125km from the Gold Coast to the Sunshine Coast, is one of Queensland's most important natural, recreational, cultural and economic resources.
This Marine Park was declared in 1993 and increased in 1997 to encompass most of Moreton Bay's tidal lands and waters. The bay is protected to the east by three large sand islands, Moreton Island and North and South Stradbroke Islands, and to the North by Bribie Island. Within the Marine Park there are other islands such as St Helena, Peel, Coochiemudlo, Macleay, and Russle, which are more typical of the main land.
Moreton Bay provides an important protection area for a great diversity of animals. The bay is one of the most important breeding areas for the increasingly rare Dugong. There are special protection zones within the Park for Turtles and Dugongs to be free of Boat traffic. The Bay is also an important site for migrating Birds. Every year during our summer months we are visited by over 50 000 wading birds who gain strength and reserves for their migration to the Arctic Circle during our winter. For its crucial role Moreton Bay has been listed under the United Nations Convention on Wetlands of International Importance.
