Weekly Photo Challenge: Extra, Extra

Tweed River NSW

Tweed River NSW

A few weeks ago I was out taking pictures at Fingal (In NSW, just over the border from the Gold Coast, Australia).


I was just setting up my shot of the beautiful wilderness along the Tweed River (between a large golf ball sign and a high rise!) and just as I was about to take the picture I saw a pelican starting to come into view. Perfect! It actually made the picture more interesting, gave it some wildlife exposure, otherwise it would have been a bit bland, but thanks to the Pelican a much better outcome.  I was so glad to have this extra photo bomb my shot!

What do you think?

  1. Beautiful panorama … I love the colors and simplicity.


  2. What a catch! A beautiful photo.


  3. Fantabaroonie! Beautiful as always.


  4. Amazing!
    I saw pelicans only in a zoo. What a beautiful nature in your region!


  5. What a perfect shot for the Extra theme! Very fortuitous, and also wow 🙂


  6. Do you have naughty pelicans too? Our steal meat and after they play football even with half of the food still holding in the feet. Have a good look http://myenz.com/2014/06/14/extra-extra/


  7. It’s hard to imagine from this shot, Karen, that there’s a highrise nearby to this lovely view 🙂 And you’re absolutely right, the photo-bombing pelican is a wonderful addition to the image!


I would love to hear from you...
