Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Feathers

~~~~~

Some of my favourite

feathery friends.

Balyang Sanctuary Pelican

Southern Masked Weaver

in Botswana.

One of my treasured photos,

not because it is good rather,

just because I have

a photo of a Wedge Tail Eagle.

They are difficult creatures to photograph.

According to Google

WedgeTail Eagles are one of eleven species

of proper eagles and can grow to more than

half the size of a small car.

Due to my shocking colour sense I am not

going to focus on colour wheels rather on how well 

the earthy tones of some of South Africa’s

flora and fauna harmonise.

I may be stretching the definition of harmonising

however I was surprised at how

such large (and small) animals

could ‘lose’ themselves in this environment. 

For the record there is

three giraffes here.

Our first and only pride of lions. 

The pride which camps on the road

until tourists hear about them.

If you were thinking of capturing the lioness

in the foreground you would also need

to contend with four others in this shot

and the male sitting on the

other side of the road.

From the large to the small.

I am calling this a Quail of sorts.

Goggle was unhelpful.

Fairly well camouflaged to my eyes.

A better image also from

South Africa’s

Kruger National Park.

Some of my favourite closeups, or crops..

Whilst there is more here than

the challenge requires

‘Percy’ still makes a good subject.

Percy again

Probably my best ‘less is more’ photo.

Botswana’s Makgadikgadi Salt Pans

in the background

and very little else.

 

 

Lunch is down there.

Near Barwon Heads last Friday morning, April 26.

Melbourne’s…

Saint Kilda Pier.

Crop some of the distraction and more focus

is on photographer and model,

completing a tertiary photography assignment.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Bridges

~~~~~


Bridges from all over.

Bridge over Rocky Mountaineer railway.

Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Auckland Harbour Bridge,

by day…

 

…and by night.

The remnants of Misery Creek Bridge.

Was in one piece until

the background tree fell on it.

A new bridge in Botswana’s

Okavango Delta.

One of my all time favourite bridges

from my school days.

The Bridge of Sighs.

Melbourne’s West Gate Bridge.

West Gate again.

There seems to be an element of risk

in everyday living these days.

However, it is not every day that one gets…

to pat a cheetah…

…although she sowed some sign

of not being happy with one traveller.

Standing under a 6 ton 30-year-old elephant

has some risk involved.

The Whistler-Blackcomb Mountains

Peak2Peak Gondola Ride

has travellers sailing at a minimum

of 1,400 feet above ground

with only a piece of wire holding things together.

Admittedly a rather larger piece of wire.

 

The riskiest part of any flight

is take off and landing.

 

 

And flying over Alaska’s wilds

one always hopes the risk of

engine failure is minimal.
