Quarterdeck Café

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 7 January 2013 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

I am at the Quarterdeck Café in Narooma. I called in for breakfast after a sunrise photo shoot at Glasshouse Rocks. The cafe is on a jetty; and at high tide looks out over the blue water of the estuary.

No better place to be than here by the ocean on the South Coast. Last week, when I got this shot, Canberra and much of the country was melting in a 40C heat wave.

In my next post, a shot of a very different cafe scene from my visit to Melbourne.

People in summer clothes chillin'. Jealous......, me, no, never-I enjoy wading through puddles and mud after yet another day of rain in the second wettest 12 month period on record!!!

@CElliottUK: This piece of coast (three hours drive from Canberra) is not as fierce in a hot summer. At home, we would like some of your rain. Heat waves and bush fires are a big threat right now.

I've heard all about your terrible heat, and the harsh light must get in the way of making good daytime shots. I like the finish on this one, the red stands up well in the shade.

a row of pictures within the picture. Almost a cartoon strip :)

@grouser: Yes, grouser - I like your cartoon strip description - all it needs are some speech bubbles for the cast of characters!

Such a very colorful and "outdoorsy" kind of place to grab a bight to eat! And what a place to capture the views from. I hope you're cooling down somewhat. :-)

It just looks so cheerful and happy. I love the colors. And your other image of the Glasshouse Rocks is just beautiful! I hope it cools off soon. My son said that it was hot when he was there.
