“I Wasn’t Expecting Cable Beach to Look so Romantic atDusk”
This was my first visit to Cable Beach, and I couldn’t wait to do the infamous camel ride at sunset. Half way through the ride we were turning back and I saw the amazing sunset, I had to take a photo to remember that incredible Thursday.
The vastness of Cable Beach shocked me and I was honoured to be part of an Aussie icon at that moment. I wasn’t expecting Cable Beach to look so romantic at dusk; it really took my breath away. The fresh air and ocean breeze was cooling after a warm day and if I leaned down close enough to my camel I could smell him too.
I look back at my time in Broome and Cable Beach with a smile and see it as the highlight of my journey around Australia.
On my last night in Broome I ventured out to photograph the stars with my best friend. I can never get used to the novelty of seeing a blanket of stars above me, making me feel both infinitely small and yet part of something large and powerful.
