"Sandgate lies on the northern shores of Moreton Bay in the City of Brisbane. There are sweeping views to the east over Moreton Bay to Moreton Island and north to Woody Point on the Redcliffe Peninsula. On a clear day, large ocean going freighters can be seen entering the mouth of the Brisbane River at Fisherman’s Island.
A favourite place for all residents and visitors to Sandgate is Einbunpin Lagoon. On Brighton Road, in the centre of Sandgate across from the shopping centre, Einbunpin Lagoon is a wonderful place to rest and relax to watch the tortoises sitting in the sun and wild ducks, swamp hens, ibis, herons and pelicans feeding and swimming. In the Einbunpin Parkland, there is a rotunda, children’s play area and a bridge over the lagoon."
There are 2 bird sculptures at left.

This is a nice view with so much beautiful greenery. I like the view over the water with some reflections and a great blue sky above. Wonderful work, Chris!

Bonsoir, mon ami Chris,
Ah ! pouvoir voyager, découvrir de nouvelles contrées, se plonger dans un monde nouveau, cela doit forger notre esprit et emplir notre cerveau de mille souvenirs.
Merci de nous offrir une si belle image aux couleurs qui font plaisir à voir.

I like the sensuous curves round the edge of the lagoon and the reflections in the water. Good natural colours and fine clarity. Thanks for sharing.

The reflections in the water are assets to the composition. The trees are framing well the lagoon. The point of view takes our eyes toward the cars in the background which is giving depth to the photo. The birds in in the foreground have an effect of scale. The lighting is well managed and is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

I am sure you had a good time in Australia during your break from duty in Korea. And your travel photos show a fine documentary of Canada and elsewhere, then back to to Queensland.
This is super color saturation of scenic garden view. Sharp and good clarity.

It's a very well maintained park, and as you said, popular with the locals and visitors alike. The bend of water is the main attraction in this photo, I like how it is dotted with the pubic artwork sculptures and has the backdrop of some lush gardens. Classic Queensland weather in the skies above, much like today. Great saturations!
