Magnolia in black and white for Photographer's choice 52 week photography project

52 week photography project – Week 11: Black and White

Source: Week 11: Black and White I have written before how much I love Spring, the flowers, the colour, the new life and in particular my magnolia tree. I always take copious shots hoping for one that’s just right. So you can imagine how wrong I felt turning this one into black and white for Week  11 of our 52 week…

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 on show. I returned home…

A cob of corn in the bush

Day 5 of the Seven Day Nature Challenge Today’s photo in my Seven Days of Nature challenge is an Australian native plant called a Banksia after Sir Joseph Banks which from some angles also looks like a cob of corn (well to me it does anyway).

The brief this week: …show us a change in progress. This can be done in one or multiple photos….Change is commonly defined as…

Every day is an adventure – 89/365

A  snowdrop adventure! These gorgeous delicate little snowdrops are flowering all over the garden at the moment.  They are so delicate and pretty but quite hard to capture. I took a few shots while walking around the garden and these are my favourites. It is amazing how differently you see the world when you actively look for beauty, adventure and take…
