SkyWatch Friday; Sunrise on Lady Elliot;

Lady Eliot Island

Turtle on her way to the sea

She was a bit late and had to go over the stones, as the tide was already out, poor thing;

Off she goes, only her hump is still visible

The sun has risen
Please visit SkyWatch Friday;

  10. You were so lucky to be at that exact spot when the turtle was heading from shore to go to the sea. I love this image!

  11. Such calming tropical scenes. It is horrible to think a cyclone is heading that way.

  12. That's a beautiful shot of the island! Love the blue blue sea. The island looks small though. But I am sure the place is wonderful. And glad to see that the turtle made it back to the sea.

  13. Ann, I think so, boats can't come in because it is surrounded by a coral reef; and also because of the turtles nesting there. The island is also full
    of birds. People and supplies are flown in by a small plane.

  14. What a great island spot. I'll have to look the place up and google earth for a closer look. I wonder haw many thousands and thousands of years turtles have made this journey. These shots make for a nice photo essay.

  20. So schön wieder mal einen Abstecher nach down under zu machen. Ich habe ja sehr vieles nachzulesen. Inselimpressionen faszinieren immer, darum habe ich mit diesem post zuerst angefangen um wieder bei dir à jour zu sein.
    Liebs Grüessli,
