My day at Work

Today I had to drive 3.5 hours for a meeting, then another half an hour to another, then turn around and drive home.  It was a long day,but I was driving a brand new Subaru Outback, a tester for our new fleet replacement, so that was kinda nice, if worrisome that someone might do damage to it whilst I was driving it.

I left home at 6.45am, in the dark, and it wasn’t until about an hour later that the sun really started to make a difference.  By then I was heading up into the Midlands, and there was still lots and lots of frost on the paddocks, so it was looking quite white.  A couple of times there were beautiful photo opportunities, but they were inthe middle of the highway, so I just had to use my mental camera, and admire the view for myself.

I did manage to get a couple, so here they are:


This doesn’t look as nice in the picture as it was in reality.  Just back a bit from this place, when I was up on a rise, it looked like an island surrounded by a lake of white clouds.


It was -2degrees Celsius here, but it was so pretty to see the sun shine through the fog and sparkle the frost.


Saw this jet trail whilst driving further up the road (thought it might have been aliens invading)


Then later another.  This one was really long, twice as much more as what is in the picture, and I could also see the remains of two others as well.  By now I am thinking it’s definitely aliens, and will I get home before they land 🙂

I had my 2 meetings, drove home, picked up D1 who has come home for the night to soak in my bath (yay), and now I am drinking a glass of wine and eating Tim Tams and telling you about my day.  – Oh, and no damage to the car, phew.

Soon it will be sleepy byes time, and the weekend tomorrow.  Hope those aliens stay away.

    Great pictures Claudette, I really do like winter photo’s especially when the sun is low in a cloudless blue sky. The light at that of the year is so beautiful and strangely warming.

      Thanks Hugh, was pretty nippy out of the car, but worth it to get that pic. 🙂
