This morning I returned from five days on Lord Howe Island, which is part of the state of New South Wales but about 750km to the east of the mainland in the Pacific Ocean. Spending the time with a bunch of bird fanatics, the days were jam-packed, the walking continuous, and the sights just wonderful.
These shots were all taken on my very first day on the island. They were taken from the 'boatshed' belonging to the guesthouse at which we stayed, 'Pinetrees'. The island out in the coral fringed lagoon is Blackburn Island. More on LHI over the weekend, followed by a more fulsome report on my travel blog, 'Hither & thither'.

Just to emphasise - all three images are 'straight out of camera'.
