Good morning, yes it’s Friday in Oz and it’s writer’s room time again. I took this burst of fireworks at Crows Nest, north of Toowoomba. The mist came in as the show began and the effect is quite eerie. Here is the link for the Crows Nest Rodeo for those who are interested. You don’t have to be on Facebook to view them.
A view of Cunningham’s Gap, on the Great Dividing Range taken near Aratula.
This rural scene is on the opposite side of the road from the red barn picture in last week’s post.
Yes, it’s upside down. Taken at Nardia Lagoon in Laidley.
A rather large hibiscus taken at a friend’s place. While I snapped the picture on the right a flower lower down caught against my jeans and covered my front in pollen.
Yes, I do get off my bum and do something now and then. One of three dead trees I felled for firewood. In the bottom picture you’ll see a Butcher Bird perching on the wood. They turn up within a minute of the saw starting up. There’s a regular feast of bugs living on the wood and they swoop in and grab them.
I took a break and sat with the camera, waiting for him to come closer. I got the feeling that he wanted me to stir up more food.
If something stays there long enough without care, then nature takes over, at Mt Mort.
I’ll toot my own horn here and say that this is a pretty good night shot of a fast horse. The barrel racing ladies certainly put everything into their sport.
I had to drag myself from a comfy seat to take the pic on the left at ground level, I’m still picking sand out of my teeth. The pic on the right needs no introduction, lovely lady on a beautiful horse.
The show’s over, the fireworks fizzle out and three lovely ladies stopped to have their photo taken.
Okay, here are the Roos. ‘Mum, that man’s taking pictures of me.’ Dad turns up and solves that problem.
Definitely something for everyone this week. I hope you’ve enjoyed your visit. Until next week,
