Lens-Artist-PC-49-Favourite-Things

 

~~~~~

Some of my favourite things are my cameras.

Cameras, lenses and travel allows me to…

…get up close to wildlife.

They also allow me to capture and keep nature

when she puts on a grand display…

 

 

…and also the not so grand displays.

 

Even foggy mornings can produce good results.

And when Mother Nature is a bit sluggish

getting out of bed, technology has advanced so much

that we can now capture lights prior to daylight.

Finally there are landscapes and many other

subjects to be found everywhere.

And there is also…

…raindrops on roses….

…and whiskers on kittens…

…brown paper packages tied up with strings

🙂 🙂 These are a few of my favourite things.  🙂 🙂

Nestled in the mountains at the southern end

of Australian’s Great Dividing Range…

…is the small township of Halls Gap.

It is surrounded by mountains known as

The Grampians.

 

 

There are also several walking trails/tracks

one of which lead up to a peak like this one. 

Forty plus years ago, I found it an easy walk.

Today, I would not be so adventurous as knees,

hips and ankles are not as young as they once were.

There is also an abundance of wildlife in, and around Halls Gap.

An artist friend of ours has this view from his studio

and often posts images of his kookaburras and kangaroos

grazing on the edges of a small wetland.
