Sun Kissed Australia

There’s a reason why Here Comes The Sun is one of my all time favorite songs – the sun makes me happy.  I’m one of those people who need to see it and feel the warmth on my skin to be in a good mood.  Luckily Australia was just what the sun doctor ordered; I experienced 27 days in Australia soaking up the sun.  That equates to 54 sunrises and sunsets – and I believe that about 40 of them were some of the most beautiful sunsets and sunrises I had ever seen.  I left Oz sun kissed after all of that time outside enjoying the rays.

I took countless pictures of the beautiful and sometimes tumultuous sun from my bed at Room753, the beach, hot air balloons, and the desert.  It was hard to pick my favorite sunrise and sunset photography, but I have narrowed it down to a few of my favorite in those 27 days.

Please let me know which one is your favorite and what’s your favorite place to watch the sunset in the world?

  1. Hard to choose. I loved the one at Uhara, the stormy sunrise and the last picture sunset in Darwin.

    I love being in Half Moon Bay watching the sunset. It’s just so beautiful. My favorite sunrise is when I’m doing a morning run on the beach and the sun just kisses the water in the horizon. It doesn’t matter where, just great.

  2. Gorgeous pictures of the sun! I’m going to have to agree with you and say one of the most beautiful places to see the sun rise and set is at the beach. Thanks for sharing them!

    I’ve done a similar pic to your gin and tonic with a Kahlua mudslide at Railay Beach in Thailand … brings the memories flooding back!

  6. I love Australia. I live here for almost 5 years now and it feels like home. Nice sunset pictures though.

    I think the Lifeguard tower and Darwin are a tied first for me!
