Blue or mauve daisies?


While these are our first rotation of Blue Gums,

this week it is not the trees, but rather

the focus is on the sky.









the natural agent that stimulates sight
and makes things visible.

Not so much two ways as ways of enhancing by cropping

First time published, strait out of my camera

a White Faced Heron in the background and

a White Necked or Pacific Heron

in the foreground…

…looks much better cropped to feature only

the White Necked or Pacific Heron.


From this ugly duckling comes…

…this not so ugly duckling.

Which Geelong Marina…


…original or cropped, and sharpened, version.

Mine is the original.

I must confess to procrastinating this week

and decided that rather than give

other parts of the world a ‘plug’,

I would plug my own backyard

as I think it is pretty good.

Two very different Moorabool Valley images.

First, a foggy start…

…to a sunny day.

Most of today’s images are ‘first light’ images.

I am often in awe of colours…


…in Mother Nature’s palette.


Not only colour but also patterns…

…or no patterns all lighted by…



…by our rising, or in this case, setting, star.
