I love Noosa.
This must be one of the most picturesque places in Australia. The weather has been perfect in Queensland since I flew here a few days ago, warm and not a cloud in the sky…. until today. I have been soaking up the sun and warmth all week.
Got up early, went for a run around the national park to take in all that Noosa has to offer. I ended up running (well, walking most of the time) with other early-rises, along the beach, board-walk footpath….straight to the coffee shop. With the relatively warm weather, there were people out having brekkie and relaxing at the outdoor cafe’s and coffee shops on Hastings Street. You know what they say….”when in Rome do as the Romans do” so I had to give one or two of them a try….glad I did:)
Noosa and the surrounding area has been photographed to death, there are postcards everywhere with beautiful images of this area. I wanted to show this place in a different light, using my own style – slow shutter/moody images, most of them shot as black and white in camera. I have included one colour image.
I would love some feedback from the readers of this blog. What do you prefer? b&w or colour? Please add your reply below. I will post more b/w or colour images depending on the response.

Look forward to flying back home to Port Stephens tomorrow. Enjoy. Brent

love all the photos,B&W ones dramatic and something different
I am a huge fan of Noosa since the 70’s and the first shot reminded me of what I love about Noosa the most, colour, brightness and that feeling of being home.
However the Black and whites were brilliant and you captured the mood. In this instance I will still say the colour photo is my favourite because Noosa is colour and I am always in a happy mood when I am there.
These B&Ws are great photos in themselves.
But as a way of defining what Noosa is? I think you need colour.
I agree with my friend Alana actually. The focus of Noosa (and Port Stephens) is the amazing ocean which is a stunning blue…therefore colour definitely captures any sea-scape best for me.
I really like the coloured ones. I think colour or b&w are all beautiful photos and it depends on personal preference and where you are going to hang them or what you are going to do with them as to what would be best.
i prefer the colour pics…really captures the beauty of the natural surroundings
In my opinion, these images are too dark whether in B & W or colour. They need brightening up to capture the beauty and detail,
Thanks for your comment Maria. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I like the moody-ness of the images, that is why I have shot them as a little darker to add to the mood I was feeling when I captured them. Brent
No dout Black and White in these pic’s
I like these all. The first one in colour is much more affective but.
and they say colour is always the best the mood best describe trough b&w
B&W definately…Love NOOSA, Love the shots…
love the moodiness but love what you have done in colour better as nossa to me is such a warm happy place lots of fond memories not moody ones, would love to see the pic with trees in colour and the last pic in colour. you are right though Nossa has been done to death but not shot the way you have. I love it!!! keep it up!
So glad your having a great time there , one of my favorite places in QLD!
