~~~~~

My Yellow Travel Theme for this week.

A selection of Yellow photos from Africa, Perth and home for this week.

This is one of the early birds photographed in South Africa last year.  A Crested Barbet.

The first of many golden-yellow sunsets.

Lemon_1866b

Produce of our little lemon tree.

sky_0760b I might be stretching the yellow theme a bit with this sunset.  This is an African sunset, our last safari evening.  Many friends have commented on the sunsets we photographed as they are not all that common close to the coast…or populated areas.  Central Australia is also known for its sunsets and I suspect such is the same in inland areas the world over.

Lines_0257 Sort of yellow pedestrian crossing lines on the road and definitely a yellow curb which usually denotes a loading zone…no parking for the general public.

Rottnest is an island about eighteen kilometres off the Western Australian coast slightly due north-west of Fremantle in the Indian Ocean.

Rottnest Island is home to the Native Quokka.  The quokka has survived there due to lack of introduce predators

WeaverThis is Africa’s Southern Masked Weaver or Lesser Masked Weaver.

I am opting for the Lesser Masked Weaver as it looks about the right size (smaller).

yellow_1906From our winter garden…although there are a few left…or at least prior the hot weather we have experienced they were still there.

Last but no means least, South Africa’s, Southern Yellow-billed Hornbill.  Amazing birds.

    • My camera is a Nikon D90 with a Nikkor 55-300 mm zoom lens attached. I did take the 18-105 lens which came with the camera, however, there were only one or two occasions when a wider angle of view was required. I would like a longer lens now that I have used the 300 mm, but it is so compact…and I have enlarged some of my photos to A4 size (30cm x 21cm app) quite successfully

    • Amazing to read about the weather extremes. Down under we are going to hot a filthy hot windy day. News services last night agin showed snow and high seas in USA and Britain, respectively. I think we would all welcome moderation.
