Sunrise  Silhouettes.

The joy of life.


Red sky at night

Shepherd’s delight…


…Red sky in the morning,

shepherd’s warning.



A windy day


Oats and hay roll

Rolls waiting to be carted.


Gloomy weather off

Point Lonsdale Lighthouse.

Point Nepean from Point Lonsdale

Point Nepean is on the lower strip of land.


 Point Lonsdale Lighthouse from Point Nepean.










fleeting moments

something which lasts only for a very short time.

On our second last morning in Botswana,

I came across this Red Breasted Weaver

in the middle of its morning callisthenics.

For no known reason, it simply let go of

the branch and free fell out of shot. 

I was so lucky to capture one frame of its fall

The whole encounter probably only lasted

around 15 seconds, at best.



Another few seconds and the sun had risen out of the sea’s grasp.  


The seagull thought it was by-passing me.

What it did not realise was that it gave me

the opportunity to capture one of,

if not my best, in-flight shot, ever.


This Black Shouldered Kite was too busy

searching for lunch to notice yours truly.


Bar one camera, my gear was packed

as I began the walk back to my car. 

Suddenly the rainbow appeared.   

It was all I could do to shoot off a couple of

frames before it disappeared again. 

A truly fleeting moment.








Black and White Challenge.

My favourite BW image.

Point Lonsdale Pier.


Colour or BW My favourite flower image.










a large brown seaweed that typically has a long,
tough stalk with a broad frond divided into strips.

Perhaps not quite kelp, but can I call it Kelp’s baby cousin.

Beautiful eyes

Point Lonsdale Lighthouse and Pier.

Unfortunately, my camera lens was

not wide enough to capture the whole,

all to brief, show.






I decided to stick to Aussie favourites for his week’s challenge.

Griffin Gully Pier with the sky colours reflected in the water.

Again reflections and colours.

The pier, above, is just to the left.



The sun is just a picture as it endeavours to remain in bed. 

Reminds me of our boys when they were teens and

I wanted half an hour’s assistance on a Saturday morning.

It always took an hour to get them out.

Sundown at Point Lonsdale Lighthouse

The first time I ever tried smoothing the water.

The 12 Apostles on a 44 Degree Celsius day


I love the colours of the sand, foam and aqua water.

It is obviously being enjoyed by this beach goer.
