JUstDreamInparadise.......JUDI living in Paradise

I am fifty something and I love my family and the life I live. I'm an optimistic person by nature and I try to find a positive for every negative. I'm not a vegetarian, but the animal I eat is. I enjoy cooking, photography and scrapbooking. Since living here I have become a gardener and take immense joy in the beauty of my garden. My husband and I feel that we are the caretakers of the land rather than land owners. We run a grass fed Droughtmaster Stud on our little piece of Paradise and the cattle are a never ending supply of photo opportunities.

Photo Club

The first Satuday of each month is the day of the month that I look forward to the most.  Photo Club Day!  
We meet at 10am at various members places and this month it was at Miallo.  The first thing we do is enter our photos for the club challenges and then vote for the photos that you like the most.  The challenges this month were "Oddest Angle", "Sunrise/Sunset", "Nights" and "Plants".  I won the "Nights"  with this photo:


and "Oddest Angle" with this one:

After the judging we wandered down to Miallo Creek for some shots and then drove on to Whynabeel Valley.

I always enjoy these outings.  The help you get from the other photographers with framing photos is invaluable.  Someone will always see something that everybody else has missed.
I had already decided that today was going to be a photography day for me and that I would devote the whole day to it.  Hubby is still away so it's perfect.  My plan was to walk Cooya Beach to the mouth of the Mossman River and then end my day at Hambug Bend for sunset shots of the Daintree River.  Another friend from the group said she would join me there and suggested that we head up to the Daintree Village for dinner.  It was a great idea and I have to say my choice of homemade meat pie (curried lamb) with chips and salad was perfect.  Just had to forget about the diet for today!
This is a selection of the shots of Cooya Beach and the Daintree River.

We were extremely luck to have a glorious sunset over the Daintree River

No crocs or birds to be seen!
