Shadow Shot #26

This weeks shots are from our recent holiday in Sydney. We stayed in the Northern Beaches with my cousin and were lucky enough to go out on Pittwater in my uncle's cruiser.


I love the landforms around Sydney - the sandstone and the Sydney gums are gorgeous. Pittwater is bounded by National Park and little residential pockets - often with no road access. Very beautiful!

We anchored at a little beach where we we able to swim ashore (so beautiful!) and played in the sand. There was a little inlet there too where the little stream coming from the rocky hill behind met the beach.

We were so very spoilt on our Sydney holiday! We also travelled to Canberra where we were spoilt again by more family members! (lots of love, beautiful food and drink!)

So now it's back to work - holidays are over!
Happy Sunday everyone, and a Happy Australia Day for tomorrow!

Thank you again to Hey Harriet for her wonderful shadow inspiration; to see more Shadow Shots on a Sunday, go to Hey Harriet's blog.

Growing up in a Sydney beachside suburb, you don't have to convince me what a beautiful place it is. What a lovely lot of images - it must have been a dream of a holiday.

Great shots Ali! The last three shadow shots I've looked at have been of people enjoying very scenic holidays. Hmmm...

Beautiful shots! I particularly like the second shot with curved shadow around the round thins (sorry I don't know their names!). Wow, the weather looks absolutely gorgeous. I wish I was there! :D
