These are from a trop to Matilda Bay and back again, a quick walk around the streets, then a snatch of sunset and the moon.
First – birds: a quickly snatched shot of a wattled honeyeater in the fully leafed flame tree – it’s not on the right setting, but was this bird going to wait? Uh uh.
The others are the ubiquitious seagull, but such clear shots against the river, including wind-ruffled feathers. And they are attractive birds – in appearance. Habits? Not so much – & getting aggressive too.
Left from a magpie lark, I think.
the wonderfully knobbly trunk of a plane tree, and the massive trunk of a moreton bay on the bank of the river.
Back in MtLawleyShire – this beautiful tree is in someone’s backyard. Envy
I don’t normally like these, but the way the red caught the sun was stunning. I almost caught it.
Dunno what this is either, but it’s pretty.
ah – sunset – snatches of golden sky
from a distance, the colour is small and slight in a sea of infinite blue
closer the colour is more vibrant, deeper
& it really is the middle of suburbia – inner city suburbia at that. This one looks like it’s out in the middle of nowhere. Well, I suppose it is Perth…
a hint of rays
the moon partly obscured by clouds tinted by sunset
the sky darkens and I alter the settings on the cameraL moon waxing towards full:
The real distance of it
I like this one
but I like this one too The second of these the camera was totally on the wrong setting so she comes out as a glamour-Plush
I hope you enjoyed my little afternoon.
