Pink zonal pelargonium
Enjoying a cooler few days, this little pelargonium put on a brief display of blooms. An experiment taking a long shot using the 300mm instead of getting down to the level of the bush.
We ate out in an Indian restaurant and these were a wall decoration that
took my eye.
Round yard and crush
Dick built the round-yard himself and its served the purpose for the last 30 years.
View late afternoon
If I turn my eyes slightly to the east I get this view from further along our paddock fenceline.
I love how this view changes with the seasons. This is our late summer view.
Paddocks in February
My new lens arrived today, this is one of the first shots taken with it.
Ofcourse 2 wedged-tailed eagles turned up and can be seen as tiny dots.
I changed to my 70-300mm lens and they disappeared!
I was sitting in my gazebo playing with the new lens
gauging distances. The rugosa was my object to
Not a very good shot yet, but he was an active little bird :)
and I'm still getting the hang of this lens and what it can and
can't do. The lighting is another difficulty to overcome.
Mower having a rest
Not a great challenging shot...Dick mows the grass while its dewy, usually around
7 a.m. keeping the grass alongside the fenceline of the houseyard clear & neat.
Sheep on the hill
Quite a distance from where I stood with my camera
Home sweet home
Looking back towards the back & upper level of our house from the fenceline of
the horse paddocks. That's our evaporative air conditioner sitting
on the roof. You can just make out the back balcony where I sat
daily this week waiting for birds to come and perch on the nearest trees.
Will have to wait until the trees bloom again I think.
Common garden skink
A tiny little thing which I nearly trod on. That's litter from
the cedar tree - an ongoing problem needing constant sweeping, grrr.
