Early Australiana ......

 Mikkira Cottage  ~

many early settlers and their families would have lived in little
stone cottages like this in rural South Australia in the 1800's
4 rooms and 2 large fire-places ensured a cosy environment in the winter

dreaming of warmer days .....

~   Henley Beach in Autumn   ~

Because it is the middle of winter - cold and damp !!
I find myself thinking back to a few weeks ago
when autumn sunshine filled my life
and it was so nice to be out beach-walking 
enjoying the sun on my face and clicking away with my Canon

lotus pond .......

Walking in the Adelaide Botanic Gardens last week
I was delighted to find beauty amid the dead and dying lotus pond

Pods which a few weeks back had been the centre for wonderful pink petals
have now nodded their head and formed little ballerina skirts
Leaves which had previously been vibrant green and alive
have now started to curl at the edges and develop into shades of burnished gold
creating a more mellow beauty

wishing you all a lovely week

aquamarine .......

South of Semaphore Beach  ~

walking along the sea-front this morning -
I was a little fearful that I wouldn't reach shelter
before a heavy downpour of rain
Fortunately it stayed out to sea & I could enjoy
the vista from a distance

Sky-watching in Melbourne ...

Unrestricted views over the vibrant city of Melbourne
these pics was taken very early morning


With so much glass it was lovely to see sky-shades of gold and blush pink
reflected all around then quickly changing to deeper blue - ever so pretty!

Fosssicking for Fungi .....

It's a magical time in our hills at the moment with green fields
golden vineyards and deep in the forests
little treasures to be found
Mind you - they can't be eaten or even touched
but oh! how lovely to feast our eyes on

Brush Strokes of Pink ......

As you can see - the lights the on the jetty are sill switched on
 it is early morning and the sky is awash with soft pastels 
not a hint of yellow or gold yet
a pretty moment in time

just before sunrise .........

~  On a photo shoot at Mutton Cove ~

looking out across still waters in this very marshy area
where there is normally little visual interest or colour
 but in that magical moment just before sunrise -
everything suddenly looks soft and pretty

Green Boat in the Harbour ........

Last weekend while attending a function in my hometown of Port Lincoln
  I noticed this little rusty boat gently bobbing up and down in the harbour.
I really hope they don't ever decide to paint it
