More pics from Mooloolaba

Here’s a few more pics from Underwater world and the beach at Mooloolaba. It was a lovely day out yesterday. The weather was perfect and cooler now, after a hot summer …so nice. The otters were resting in the sun, and the crocodile resting in his (fake) watercourse. It always concerns me when I see larger wild animals and mammals in restricted environments. How does this affect them emotionally, physically and mentally?…I’m sure it does even though many people would not recognise this as an issue. It’s wonderful to see animals we aren’t familiar with in zoos, and often there are great breeding programs. Still, it causes me to think on these issues….anyway, the beach was beautiful!

Pics from a day out

Shot some nice pics on a day at the bay…tide was out but could walk to the island…..beautiful big sky…lots of little crabs in the mud. It’s always refreshing to walk out into the natural world…good for inspiration too. I often get ideas for paintings after such walks, even if I’m working on contemporary abstractions.

The light’s a bit lower and softer in winter, but still┬ávery clear.
