Tangalooma beach

Decide to take the opportunity to take some pictures of the sunset at Tangalooma.

The following is a HDR. I think the composition is rather nice and there are some nice colors. The little boat adds a bit of interest to the picture.

The next one was also a HDR post processed for some lens blurring effects to put the focus on the sun.

The next one I really like. I like the composition and the colors.

The next one is the only one which is not a HDR but processed in Color Efex Pro 4 instead. The colors are the main interest here.

Shipwrecks at Tangalooma

On the second day at Tangalooma, we took a boat out to have a look at the shipwrecks near the island. Along the way, we saw lots of fishes in the clear waters. Pauline even managed to get a photo of a bird snacking on a fish.

The shipwrecks are serving as home for many marine life but it is still sad to see these once functional ships in this state.

Dolphin feeding

One of the key highlights of the resort is definitely the dolphin feeding. Visitors get to feed the dolphins which come to the beach regularly. The attraction for the dolphins would of course be the free fishes handed out to them. But the visitors do get a nice pitch by the guides on their conservation efforts.

For the kids, it was certainly exciting and they were really looking forward to it. We had originally planned to go as a family but Pauline and Ernest felt too cold since it was in the evening and we had to get wet walking into the waters at the beach. So in the end, it was brave Esther and myself. It was certainly very cold in the water and we were shivering from the cold. But it was certainly an experience being able to see the dolphins up close and to feed them.

Tangalooma resort

We finally reached the resort and it was beautiful. The beaches were amazing, clear waters and soft sand. We were surprised to learn that the movie Scooby Doo was actually shot here.

Here are some photos of the beautiful beach.

Esther being the creative and artistic one decided to leave her mark on the beach.
