Another look at Gladstone Harbour, Queensland, Australia

You can 'see' many things with a camera. From a quiet study of a sunrise in monochrome, black and white, to the exuberant burst of glorious golden light lighting up the clouds in a WOW! moment. Koole Imaging has both the ability to see, and to handle a camera. It's a privilege to share his pics here.

Coal terminal, Gladstone Harbour, Queensland, Australia
Coal terminal, Gladstone Harbour, Queensland, Australia. Coal is a big industry in Queensland.

Coal is of course part of the energy/ environment debate. Can coal be made clean enough for long term energy supply use? Or should we look further afield to nuclear or renewables? And what are the benefits and problems of each? Australia needs to have a good open debate about energy where all options are on the table and can be openly discussed.

Sunrise at Graham Creek, Gladstone Harbour, Queensland, Australia
Sunrise at Graham Creek, Gladstone Harbour, Queensland, Australia. Graham Creek is a Gladstone icon; it is the kick off point for the Narrows and offers protection from all conditions.

During my time at a construction project on Curtis Island I was lucky to witness this stunning sunrise.
