(Day 325) Million dollar view

I went out late this afternoon to make a few photos from among which I could choose to post one here. I set out for the local harbour to where I'd been directed a few days ago by a neighbour. thank you. The area looks like a fairly recent development, and just like some of the newer malls, is very nicely done.

The buildings appear to be part of a large(r) condominium complex, and the development offers properties both for sale and for rent. I have no idea what the purchase or rental cost might be, but the second photo shows what the view would be like from the building in the first photo.

(both photos made using a 10-22mm lens at f7.1, ISO200 and shutter speeds of 1/60 and 1/160 sec)

This is also my shot for Sunset Sunday.

That view is priceless,but my guess is that the cost of these buildings is super high.

I love both of these. That resort looks like one very nice place to live. Expensive . . . but nice.

These are beautiful ... reflections and color.

Wow. I am sure you would pay BIG TIME for this view.
! Guess it helps to use your 2 feet (and camera) to find your own view- for free:)
Nice shot!

Dawn has a valid point but when I win the lottery I know where I'm moving to for the cold winter months. It's paradise there, I'm in awe of the view and you've captured it magnificently. Awesome shots Rick!

aber sonnige Grüße von Jasmin...

Well a view like that here in Queensland would cost a pretty penny. This is such a glorious sunset Rick .. nice capture!

Rick said...

Thank you everyone - this was such a great place to spend some time; I made quite a few photos there - I'll have to share more at some future date. I hope you feel the warmth of these scenes.

I'll be seeing you soon !
