I’d seen hundreds of photos just like this – sunset at Broome’s Cable beach. It wasn’t until I took my own, however, that I saw the obvious. So I have entered it in this week’s photo challenge, a good match.
The Aboriginal Flag, according to www.naidoc.org.au › About NAIDOC Week symbolises :
- Black – represents the Aboriginal people of Australia
- Yellow circle – represents the Sun, the giver of life and protector
- Red – represents the red earth, the red ochre used in ceremonies and Aboriginal peoples’ spiritual relation to the land.
If you are ever in Cable Beach around sunset you will find it hard not to join the throng who head for the sand, with cameras and phones poised, classic and creative selfies capturing the incredible sight, night after night. It is irresistible.
By the way, I deliberately capture things like this on an angle because I find the asymmetry of it more interesting. My husband hates it and keeps asking me to edit them!
As always – take water to drink, but you may dispense with the hat at sunset.
