Wordless Wednesday – 3 May 2017

It's Wordless Wednesday! Enjoy your Wednesday - wherever you are in the world. The seasonal differences within our huge country never cease to amaze me.  Just a week ago I was up north in Brisbane in Qld where autumn was not evident at all.  It was a pleasant 25 degrees during the day and no autumnal colours were …

Nature as art

Nature as Art

It's been a quiet Sunday - not quite silent but definitely quiet. Restful, relaxing and rejuvenating. How could you not feel rested when you have this ever changing view to take in every day? I've been experimenting with apps again and this is the result - my photo of next door's vineyard now looks like …

Under storm clouds

Despite it being Autumn here in the land of Oz the temperatures have been extreme, with mid to high 30s all week.  This afternoon a storm came rolling through and I managed to capture the sky above our paddock. There was the usual thunder and lightening and finally after all the build up, some rain! …

Weekly Photo challenge: (Morning has) broken 

Morning has broken

A different take on finding beauty in something broken - here's my glasshouse/sunroom welcoming the start to a new day on a cold and frosty morning. I also want to re-use my favourite droplets of dew photo from my recent post  - just because I love it so much and because it fits in with my morning has …

Droplets of Dew – Changing seasons 05

While having breakfast this morning, I looked outside and saw these droplets of dew sparkling in the early morning sunshine.  I felt compelled to walk out onto the wet dewy lawn to take some photos even though it meant I would be late for work! I took them (as usual) with my iPhone and am quite happy with how they have …

Weekly photo challenge: Enveloped – 2 examples

A carpet of colour 

Carpet of colour

Have I told you before that I love autumn?  I think I may have mentioned it once or twice in my blog! I took this photo today - I just love the reds, oranges and yellows in what I call a 'carpet of colour'.  I also think that the nonchalant placement of the rake is …
