Australian model Annalise Braakensiek is making the most of the warmer weather, soaking up the sun during her holiday in Elizabeth Bay.
Taking to Instagram, the 45-year-old has shared a fun snap her age-defying self, clad in a sexy black bikini.
"Hope is like the sun, which as we journey towards it, casts the shadow of our burden behind us. That was a good day @adriana_g.d," reads the caption next to the model's photo.
In the image, the former television presenter is seen lying down on a bench, with one of her legs raised in the air.
She teams her black bikini with a cool hat and sunglasses.
Annalise, who has starred in Australian TV shows such as Home and Away and Heartbreak High, has faced many challenges in her career.
"It wasn't something I wanted to do (modelling)," she told Daily Mail Australia last year.
"I wanted to be an artist and a jewellery designer. I did have a lot of people tell me I was beautiful but I was overweight."
