It is the shortest day of 2017,

so what better way to spend a

Wednesday afternoon in winter...

than with a stretch after a game of fetch, or…

a favourite bone.

Hope you enjoyed.

One thing I do like about visiting

 Europe is the late sunsets.At the moment we a pitch black by 1800 or shortly thereafter.

I had to wait another five minutes before

the Bell Tower lights were turned on.

So at nearly 2200, with the moon high in the sky

and some street lights on it was still not

dark enough to light up the Bell Tower.

Dinner at St Germain’s was long past.

Finally the lights were turned on…

 

and I discovered I was not the only person

in La Place des Heros waiting to take a photo.

Some of these were posted in Cee’s Black and White (Lights) Challenge.

Recently I visited the

Serendip Sanctuary

just outside Geelong.

A Magpie Goose…perhaps.

Female Fairy, or Blue Wren.

Cape Barren Goose.

First time I ever sighted one was

in the Toronto Zoo in 1976.

Along way from home to sight a local bird.

Hope you enjoyed.

Staying with a bird theme again this week.

I have been told by a local fisherman and

Victorian Birders Facebook Group…

that this is a Pacific Gull.

Again a new one to me.

Where else can they be found?

Hope you enjoyed.

On Tuesday I managed to capture a few shots of…
our New Holland Honey Eaters
hard at work…

in the remnants of our Grevillea blooms.

Sunrises appeal to me.

No permission needed to publish or take them.  🙂
Not a good sunrise that morning

so I had to be content with a silhouette

of this tree on Geelong’s Waterfront.

These two are taken through our living room window.

Fences…

but cemetery fences.

I have had an interest in old cemeteries

for many years…

but only recently decided to

take my camera with me.

I admit to playing around with Photoshop.

and like the results.

Hope you enjoyed.
