I went for a walk down to Beaufort Street a couple of days ago, but haven’t had a chance to post – working and so on. And I am still not used to the settings on my camera – or checking them before I take photos, so these roses are in light too low for crisp detail.
The first of these seems to have light inside it & all I can think of is that it caught the light of the lowering sun. The 2nd is just a pretty bud.
& these – the orangey one is overblown, but still beautiful, considering that most roses I saw that evening were scorched by the hot sunny days we’ve had recently.
A tree loaded with pomegranates – ripe-looking pomegranates. Maybe I should’ve nicked one or 2!
Late afternoon light on the branches of a lovely tall gum on William street, and the second photo is of my ‘pied beauty’ friend, also on William Street. These 2 trees are almost opposite one another. One is a sort of street tree, the other grows in the grounds surrounding a block of flats.
On a side road, this tree, spindly and untidy, soars gracefully into forever and light behind a box tree adds mystery & magic:
The wonderful shapes of the lemon scented gum street trees: they keep them lopped so they don’t entangle the power lines.
And then – I saw a pair of galahs – they started far apart, but then began to groom each other:
I finished my shopping and began walking home. Sunset glow was visible ahead of me, behind the rise:
At the top of the rise – William Street, the glow was broad:
To the east, the pastels were beautiful. The second of these is the same tree that up above has light on its trunk:
And although there were no clouds, nothing to differentiate the sunset, I had to take photos of that tree:
& finally – lastly – the moon.
It turned out to be the piece de resistance!
I caught – without knowing what it was – the occultation (or the beginnings of) the moon with Jupiter. I actually got Jupiter in my little camera!! OK, very small, unbanded, totally undetailed Jupiter, but it *is* Jupiter!
