Un maravilloso lugar... demasiado turístico, en Australia.

El pequeño delta de la isla Whitsunday, famosa por ser la isla con la arena más blanca del mundo, y una de las playas más "codiciadas" del planeta. AUSTRALIA

A photo taken from the boat while sailing, not easy to photograph this light sun. But it's done!

Une photo prise du bateau, en pleine navigation, pas facile de prendre en photo cet éclairage de soleil. Mais c'est fait !

Not bad in Lightbox

 

The Whitsunday Islands are a collection of continental islands of various sizes off the central coast of Queensland, Australia, situated between just south of Bowen and to the north of Mackay, some 900 kilometres (560 mi) north of Brisbane. The island group is centred on Whitsunday Island, while the group's commercial centre is Hamilton Island.

 

The term is a mis-nomer, based as it is on Captain Cook’s naming of what is now known as the Whitsunday Passage (in Cook’s Journal, Whitsunday’s Passage) in the belief that the passage was discovered on Whitsunday whereas, because of an error in time-keeping, it was actually Whit-Monday.[citation needed]

 

Contention has existed as to exactly what islands are within the informally-named Whitsunday Islands, in particular as to the southern extremity and the inclusions to the west. What is certain is that they lie within the chain named Cumberland Isles by Captain Cook (now officially approved as the Cumberland Islands) and a reasonably defined section of that chain and surrounding waters have become known world-wide as The Whitsundays based on a contraction of the Whitsunday Islands designation.

I had to see world famous Whitsundays Beach while in Queensland.

Non loin de Airlie Beach se trouve un endroit idyllique nommé Whitsundays Island.

 

Not far from Airlie Beach is an idyllic place called Whitsunday Island.

Classic 'Loving the sun' photo. Not usually a fan of flares, but this one if pretty cool...

Sunset in the Whitsunday Islands – the orange rays perfectly shining through the clouds, this photo is breathtaking viewed in its poster size, full resolution original format. You can even see the birds flying away in every direction. Much like the previous photo, just sit back, relax, take in this sunset, which, unlike in real life, will never go away.

Taken from the ferry travelling from Airlie Beach to Hamilton Island. One minute the view was a mix of blue and white with streaks of sun... the next, a moody vista like this. Spectacular.!!
