Golden Hour at Rainbow Beach

Another weekend - another adventure!

This time we decided to go a little bit further down the Sunshine Coast and to explore Rainbow Beach and surroundings. The main reason for choosing this destination was that my photography mate Clara (@claaeri) and I saw pictures of the Carlo Sandblow at sunset and immediately knew that we wanted to shoot there too. 

So together with three other friends, we started our trip on Saturday around lunch time and about three and a half hours later (time includes two random supermarket grocery shopping stops) we eventually arrived at our final destination. As soon as we stepped out of the car and walked towards the sand dunes everyone realized that the long drive was just totally worth it. Flashed by the overwhelming beauty of Carlo Sandblow during golden hour, we couldn't do anything but take out our cameras and start shooting! 

Do you know the feeling when you are so caught up doing something that you forget about everything and everyone around you?

That's exactly how I felt this time and hopefully my pictures can somehow reflect all the happiness and excitement of this evening. After the sun was gone, I couldn't even remember how long we've been there because I was still too overwhelmed by everything around me. I always knew that there are a lot of pretty places in Australia, but this place exceeded all my expectations. Rainbow Beach itself doesn't have that much to offer and the whole town is mostly focused on Fraser Island tourists as many of the tours start there but nevertheless Carlo Sandblow makes it definitely worth visiting and if you have the time (and money) why not just explore Fraser Island on the following days? 

After our shooting adventure we stayed the night at Dingos Rainbow Beach Hostel and had an early night. Compared to other backpacker accommodation, this Hostel was almost luxury and it offers everything you need for a few nights. We then got up quiet early to enjoy a free pancake breakfast and spent a few hours at the beach. On our way back home we then sopped at Caloundra for the afternoon and Jana and I shot a few more pictures there during sunset. 

I hope you enjoy the pics as much as I do!
