Travel Theme : Silhoette

I am going to cheat abit this week as last week I was “bush” in the great Australian outback, no internet. I had withdrawal symptoms when I found out I had missed Ailsa’s great challenge from last weeks “Where’s my backpack” theme of sunsets. So here is my silhoette combined with a sunset….

A glass of wine and some one you love, how good is that…

One of the really iconic places in Australia that is synominous with sunsets is Broome on the west coast of Australia. They always have a beautiful sunset and Cable Beach is the place to be.

About 4-30 the crowds start to gather. They bring the wine the nibbles, maybe prawns and/or chicken. Choosing a perfect spot to spread the picnic rug. Maybe go to the snack bar for fish and chips. The in crowd reserve a table at the prestigious Cable Beach Hotel where all the chairs and tables face the beach for natures ultimate performance. The atmosphere is happy and expectant.

The camels wind their way through the people and set off along the beach to take a group of tourists on a ride into the sunset…

Camel ride into the sunset

As the sun dips toward the horizon and the sky turns to that luminescent apricot, pink hue the cameras are all turned toward the incredible view and hundreds, maybe thousands of images are recorded of the moment. Just as the sky blazes in glorious shades of red a pearl lugger slips into the picture. Perfection; palms, sunset and the boat. It brings back memories of a great evening spent with friends.

This is what they are all waiting for, sunset in the tropics on the West coast of Australia
