Photographer's Note

It was a couple of days after Christmas and it looks as though Santa may have delivered a few fishing rods!

This photo is taken from the Pumicestone Passage side of Bribie Island and a few hours before storm clouds appeared. The mountains in the distance are some of the Glasshouse Mountains on the Australian mainland and are cores of extinct volcanoes. They were named by Captain James Cook as he sailed north up the coast of what is now Queensland in 1770 and as part of his epic voyage aboard HM Bark Endeavour. They were so called as the shape of the mountains reminded him of the huge glass furnaces (glasshouses) back in his native Yorkshire.

By the way Bribie Island is the only island in Australia which is connected to the mainland by a bridge. The bridge is to the left of this photo.
