Over the next few weeks I will
bore astound you all with pictures taken on our recent trip to Canberra. They won’t be in any particular order and the odd one or two from home will pop up. All of these pictures will look far better opened in a new tab or window.
I snapped these roses in the garden next door to my brother’s home in Canberra.
Taken in the Canberra Botanical gardens. I’m using this on my about.me page.
The things a photographer does for his art. I took this lying on my back to get the effect, at Orraral in the Namadgi National Park. A satellite tracking station once stood in the area, part of the network used in the Lunar landings in 1969.
I actually stood up for this one.
I had the hardest time getting a half decent shot of this Blue Wren, it’s obviously mating season and he’s trying to impress the ladies. He impressed me with his turn of speed. Oh and some travelling Wood Ducks off for a bath.
There is a fabulous rose garden in Cowra New South Wales.
I was intrigued by the amount of long dead grass on the roadside with golden seed heads. So we stopped and I snapped this.
I think this Bee owns the rose at Cowra. He stayed while I huffed and puffed back to the car and changed lenses for a longer one. I like to keep out of their way.
I took this sequence yesterday at home after Lorelle said, ‘Get your camera.’ Joey saw me and headed back to Mum, did a skidding turn and headed for the pouch. I think she was after breakfast because she settled down and relaxed. It’s good to see them out and about.
That’s it for this week, something of a smorgasbord indeed. So be prepared for a colourful exhibit and some odd shots. Until then,
