Sand Safari in Gold Coast Australia

Sand sculpture

Last February this year the Sand Safari has been held at Surfers Paradise in Gold Coast in Australia. This is a 3-week festival featuring sand sculpture display from artists all over the world. Besides the sculpture displays, there are also other activities that will make everyone entertained like the Sand Trail, Mural arts, Sculpture Competition Exhibition, Live on-site Sculpting, Arts Competition, Photography Competition, and the Australian Sand Sculpting Championships.

This festival is held annually along the Esplanade of Surfers Paradise in Australia. People of different ages will surely enjoy going to this festival, not mentioning the event is just beside the magnificent sandy beaches of Surfers Paradise, famous for the large waves and great for surfing, or just swimming.

I've always been amazed at how my lens captures and freezes a scene or a moment...those moments that I can only remember for a while and perhaps, forget when time passes by.

Looking back at my photos takes me back in time...a childhood moment, a special event, or just an ordinary day back in time.

I hope you will find inspiration in my photos...Go and start a journey by capturing special and inspiring moments with your lens.
