    Pictures from "home"

    I was inspired to start this thread after seeing someone post pictures from my neck of the woods in the "go for a ride and take a picture" thread. Even though I haven't lived here in many, many years, I still consider it to be "home."

    Looking south, towards the regrowth fields and the hedgerow


    That's my Dad out there When I was little, the coolest thing EVER was getting to ride with him.


    Locust forest in front of house. I used to sleep in that hammock after 12 hour shifts at the fish fry I worked at.


    I can't believe how green it is back home. It is even more bright in person.


    I got soaked seconds after I took this...that "mist" in the distance is actually a sheet of incoming rain.


    Thanks for indulging me. I have a huge case of homesickness. Does anyone else have pictures from wherever they consider "home"?

    Because the Scow isn't rigged and it's up on the lift. I wanted to get some better light as well.

    My Paradise:
    I was born and raised on the Gold Coast, Queensland, AUSTRALIA

    The Gold Coast is an incredible city which has World Heritage Listed Rainforests and has one of the worlds greatest surfing beaches. Our sandy coastline stretches 42 km's and includes my favourite beach; Burleigh Heads Beach. (approx 1.5 km's from my house)
    Our city also has the worlds tallest residential tower (Q1) and the unique area was created by the worlds biggest Volcanic Caldera.

    We have first class hotels including the only Versace Hotel in the World.


    First of all:
    Our World Heritage Hinterland:

    hey giantcfr1, what falls are ^^^^^ those? It looks like Lamington Nat Park area but I don't recognise the falls themselves. Nice shot of the crimson rosella too.

    I was always a sunny coast boy though... Gotta love noosa


    Not my photo though If I had somewhere to put photos online I'd put up some of my regular ride around the Brisbane river.... a job for tomorrow.


    Disregard... I didn't see the Springbrook sign below. Figured it out now

    I now live in a very different paradise. I now live in Kyoto in JAPAN.
    Kyoto was the capital of Japan before Kyoto.
    We have over 3000 temples and shrines in this city, and is a visual cultural delight.
    Kyoto has the only Maiko and Geiko in Japan, and I have been lucky enought to be invited to dine with a Maiko.

    No no, the sign is misleading. The falls are Purlingbrook Falls. The rosella was actually at Springbrook.
    I do love Noosa, as it's another special place to escape.

    BTW, a little cooler there in Brisbane now?? How's the drought going?

    We just got a new trampoline yesterday--a really good one--so I took this shot while I was jumping on it. I live straight down.
