Travel Theme-Warm

~~~~~

My

Warm

Travel Theme.

In early June I set off on my tour of

Western Front WW I battlefields. 

MGW was not interested,

hence it was a solo trip.

MGW was not all that happy to see my Facebook

posts with me in shorts and shirts sleeves

at her relative’s Fromelles grave.

The weather had turned cold Down Under.

The sun shone on the road to

Vlaanderen, in Belgium

 and continued to do so at

Hill 60…

the site of the Christmas Truce

at Prowse Point.

All in all one could not ask for

better weather while travelling.

Travel Theme-Fragile

~~~~~

My

Fragile

Travel Theme.

A network so fine…

 to display these…

dew drops in all their glory.

Another kind of fragility…in Nice last year…

 

reminded us of the fragile grip on life we have.

Travel Theme-Frozen

My

Frozen

Travel Theme.

Not the first time I have posted either of these.

However, I have never seen another

occurrence of the top scenario.

 Winter 2006 or 2007.

 Actually this was a first for me also.

Did not know we had ice rinks in Melbourne.

Travel Theme-Branches

My

Branches

Travel Theme.

A blogger told me this was a

Ginko tree/leaves a few months ago.

I hope my memory is serving me well.

Eucalyptus trees capturing the morning sun.

 

I think the bird is a darter on these dead branches.

Colours have been inverted in Picasa

to create a negative effect.

Unfortunately those in power, in their wisdom

decided to cut down these Sugar Gums.

Instead of this view there are now

 many tiny tree guards protecting whatever

has since been planted.

I just love these big old trees.

And so livestock on a sunny day.

Travel Theme-Windy

My

Windy

 Travel Theme.

First old photos of the surf…

at Torquay.

 

Wind also creating a good spray on these waves.

 

Taken in October 2016, the wind creates

grass waves in paddocks this time of year.

One of my favourite sites.

Photo darkened to enhance the waves.

My

Names

 Travel Theme.

December 2016 our camera club

flew to Sydney for the day.

One of the highlights of a visiting

Sydney is to visit King’s Cross.

Kings Cross has a reputation which

draws large crowds after  dark.

 

It seemed everyone on the excursion

knew about the Coca-Cola sign

at Kings Cross, except yours truly.

A good Irish sounding name for a hotel.
