P.S. Do you see how the Cow fits the theme?
I inverted this photo of an Eagle and a Crow, I love the change it makes to the birds, and the lavender grass.
The Glow, the Crescent, the Craters. The Moon gives me a promise that there is more than what we know on Earth.
This is a hard colour to photograph with my camera, I have tried many times and ended up deleting the photo, so when this shot turned out I was really happy. I like the way it occupies the space in the photo too.
The Framing, the Black & White, the minimal scenery.
The veins and the bright colour.
I wish I had caught them when they faced me, but it was through the Kitchen window and the angle was wrong. Still like the photo though – who doesn’t like Robin Red Breasts.
Joyous, childlike innocence – it just makes me happy to look at this photo.
I thought I would try something different with my weekly photos this year, so I have decided that I will choose one photo each week that evoked a particular feeling or emotion.
These last feathers
lying lone against the stone
no more sky blue flights
or chirps at break of dawn.
Things that caught my eye last week:
Birds seem to pop up everywhere this week, these are the photos I finally settled on, a Red Robin, an Egret in the Early Morning, a Cormorant and Crows! Yes, I finally managed to get a shot of crows, multiple crows – now I just need a close up.
Facts I learnt this week: there are 2 types of dandelions growing in my lawn, who knew? Photographing a fairy isn’t easy! Camellia Seed pods are bizarre. The weird coloured cloud may be an alien mothership (that’s probably not a fact, but if it is you heard it here first). Rainbows never look as good in a photo I take as they do in real life. Ships with red sails are not necessarily invading raiders.
The last two days of this week I had to go away for work, and I managed to get a couple of reasonable photos on my old camera, as I am still waiting for my new one to arrive.
This Moorhen in my backyard was bathing in a puddle on my path.
These boats were taken just 3 minutes up the road. Now I am not a fan of boat photos, but the water was still as glass and I could not resist the reflections.
Thursday was a beautiful day to be driving up the East Coast, but unfortunately due to time restrictions I didn’t really have an opportunity to take photos. These two photos were taken on the roadside. What you don’t see is the Panaorama photo I thought I had taken! (The view extends in an arc over 180 degrees at this point). It was beautiful on a 28 degree day – the sparkle on the water, the distant spume against the land making a little mist that hugged the coastline, and the lone tree, bent against the wind near the tumbledown wall.
Driving through country near Fingal I stopped to take a picture of a crow (which I didn’t get) and instead took this lovely face peering at the road. I love the shaggy ears.
This little black water bird amongst the Seagulls at lake Dulverton amused me, and the wind ruffling his feathers seemed opportune just after I clicked the button!
The working windmill at Oatlands. I love the white sails against the blue sky, and it made a nice sound as it ticked over.
The black water bird again, love how he has actually merged with the seagull behind. Lake Dulverton was abounding with birdlife of all kinds.
Hope you enjoyed my little road trip, next time I will allow more time so I can take some proper photos.
