When in doubt put up a sunset, one that’s been created from nature’s magnificent palette. This
has only been cropped, I like to use several different exposures on the same scene and then choose the most vibrant.
I took this at lunch time in Gatton a few weeks ago. I’ve been trying a little street photography lately and saw that the light was on. So what do you do with a plain old light? Why you tart it up a little. The yellow hasn’t been touched.
This memorial in Gatton was erected in memory of three members of the 13th Queensland Mounted Infantry, part of the Australian Light Horse who died in the Boer War in South Africa. 1899-1902. I took it so it appeared to be floating in the air.
The unusual thing about this pic is the joey. He’s far to old to be suckling when there’s another joey in the pouch. Either that or he’s looking for his X-box. If you look at this pic in a new window you will see that there may be something wrong with the mother’s nose. It looks like a hole above her nostrils.
You may remember the fighting Roos from a few weeks ago, well here are a couple I didn’t put up. In the right hand pic, if you look close enough you’ll notice the roo on the right side has a nosebleed. Caused by having his opponent’s claws up his nostrils.
I think these are Plumed Whistling Ducks. We have a tiny dam down from the front of the house choked with water weeds and such, it’s quite attractive for nesting. I was going to call it Peking Ducks.
I took this picture of a Butcher Bird when we stayed in a unit down at Ballina. As soon as we opened the door onto the balcony he swooped down to see what we had to offer. I don’t normally feed wildlife but seeing that he’d grown accustomed to being fed by humans I gave him a few crumbs.
Well, that’s it for this week, I should be back in form next week and have a wider variety for you. Until then, take care and thanks for dropping by.
