Another superb image, Erik. Your presentation of light and cloud is wonderful. Love the moods you have portrayed in your gallery. L

Greetings Berend.

This seems to me to be a classic photo of tropical North Queensland, with mountains and forests meeting the coral coast. The new home in the foreground is rather an impressive building. It is like a bunker (Able to withstand violent tropical cyclones) from this view, but from the other side it has an open view of the magnificent coastline.


Thanks Berend. Its architecture certainly appealed to me, too.


Greetings Berend,

The windy conditions have stirred up the sediment and coloured the water. The Northern Beaches of Cairns are not far from the delta of the Barron River.

I hope you get to walk on some of these beaches one day to enjoy the tropical warmth and the beauty of the tropical forests.


This is the wettest part of Australia, Berend, so the clouds have to be an important part of the landscape. Thanks for your appreciative comment.


What a great view! So beautiful with the mist! A big like for it! Best regards, christian

Thanks Berend. When you return, I will happily be your guide! The tropical north has many wonderful landscapes because of the high mountains, gorges, forests and deep ravines.



Thanks Berend. I enjoyed exploring Cairns, for it is a very attractive modern city. I loved its parks and gardens, its galleries and shopping centres, its tropical setting and its surrounding mountainous areas. It must be about 40 years since I was there so I enjoyed seeing that the provincial town has become a modern small city.

Kind regards,


Greetings Berend. I have listed the populations at the last census of the largest significant urban areas of Queensland (above) , in which you will see that Cairns is our 5th largest city. The section seen in this photo is only the central area, for the city extends to Edmonton in the south and Palm Cove in the north, 35 km north-south axis.

I hope that you are able to revisit...soon.
