Afternoon mist at the Glasshouse Mountains

When Captain James Cook sailed around the coastline of Australia, he came to a spot which is now named the Sunshine Coast.  As he looked across the land he saw mountains in the distance to him they looked like Glasshouses.  Today, these mountains are the Glasshouse Mountains.  Here is a photograph I took from Mary Cairncross Parks that gives you an idea of what James spotted from the coastline.glasshouse mountains
