Australia part 3 of many

Hi Everyone,

I know I am not editing pictures as quickly as I should, and that is why I will edit pictures today, all day long:) I will not upload the posts all at once, but I think I will upload daily for the rest of the week. (Or until I am finally caught up).
Anyway,

Here are more pictures from the lovely time I had in Australia:


This rock was extremely beautiful and really fascinated me. Due to a crystallization of two sorts of magma this rock consists of enormous hexagonal crystals. 


I still cannot grasp the emptiness of this country. There is simply so much nature, so much to see.





We followed a little part of the waterfall highway, which is basically a highway that will lead you to some beautiful waterfalls.


We went to Byron bay. The weather was so nice, it was hot enough to walk around outside without a jacket or anything. (Ant that for winter!) Byron bay was really nice as well, it was such a small, creative community, I would love to have lived there:)







 Of course, there were surfers everywhere:)

This is Nimbin, which is the weirdest place I have ever been. It is a hippie community:)


This is surfer's paradise. There is a Dutch TV show about lifeguards on Australian beaches, and they film at this beach too. Each time it comes on TV, I am like: I HAVE BEEN THERE, and I will hysterically gather everyone to see this:)





I am actually really proud of this picture:)

And of this one as well:)









I will post again tomorrow!

Love, 

Iris

Australia part 2 of many

And part 2. I am thinking about doing some "self portrait therapy"later today:) It needs to rain though... I will post them on here as well, just to break the holiday posts.
Okay, more photos of Australia now:)

 The three sisters, part of the seven sisters, are very important to Aboriginals.

The blue mountains are called this way because of the eucalypti trees, that give off a blue haze.

Here you can see the blue haze a little better.

There are beautiful falls everywhere.

I am quite fond of this picture:)
 I
I was amazed by all this beauty.

And of course, there were these beautiful beaches everywhere:)

Look how small they look. (And they are tall :P )

It's a fugu fish ;)


A really big sand dune.

Lost in the desert.

Cathedral caves.

Forest:)

The aboriginals used to eat these berries.

Yes, that is a kangaroo!

The light was spectacular

This already is on Flickr, but just in case:)

Flowers:)

Sunrise in the outback:)
