I have been a bit worn out of late and can’t put my mind to writing. I have also stepped sideways around your posts and will try to catch up some time. I just don’t want to feel guilty if I miss some. Here is a shot of the sun going down on the jetty at Half Moon Bay. (Melbourne.) I would have taken more … Continue reading Who knows where time goes.
Leave Hobart and travel NNW for about 180 kilometres and you get to the Great Lake. About half that distance (90 ks) you are in the small town of Bothwell and you have climbed a little over 350 metres. If you can’t relate kilometres to miles then it is about time you learned to. Just divide kms by 8 and multiply by 5 = miles. … Continue reading Highland Tasmania
The ferry lady rang the ‘wake up’ call and I stumbled out of bed. At last! Free from the man in the bunk above my head. A trumpet rumbling snore all night. And out of tune. I bet he was married and his wife wangled a bed for him and she had the best sleep of her entire married life without that noise. My two … Continue reading Melbourne sunrise morning
I like dogs. But I don’t like them lying on my bed. So here I am on a little trip to visit and the house dog is accustomed to lying on the bed and I have been politely asking her to get off or alternately tapping her gently on the nose. And now she doesn’t like me all that much. Continue reading The eye of truth.

But I was quite impressed by the fishing method a four or five White breasted terns. I need to learn how to do this sort of stuff but at least it prompted a … Continue reading Had a bit of a tern.
Frogs are environmental thermometers. If you have a temperature then you might be sick. When we were kids and we wanted to stay home from school the first thing mum would do was to poke the thermometer at us and say ‘stick this under your tongue.” Usually she would look at it and say, “No. No temperature. Get dressed or you’ll miss the school bus.” … Continue reading Frogs
“….The full blaze of thy beams, and through a cloud Drawn round about thee like a radiant Shrine, Dark with excessive bright thy skirts appeer, [ 380 ] Yet dazle Heav’n…..” John Milton Paradise Lost Book 3 It’s not my fault. Andrew Petcher started quoting Literature. (If you don’t know Andrew but if you would like to see photos from Malta and Spain and anywhere else in Europe you … Continue reading “…Dark with excessive bright…”
Everyone knows that to get a good sunset you need clouds in the sky and on the horizon or sometimes, here in Australia, plenty of blue smoke from bush-fires. And it’s always good down at the sea-side. All things being present you can be sure of getting a good shot. Unless you’re asleep or watching a good game of cricket, or both. I was wondering … Continue reading Not a cloud in the sky
I am sure I will have carked it by the time there is another event like tonight’s so I set off to capture it. I took my little zoom lens with all the confidence of a tuna fisherman taking a pond scoop with him. It started with a bit of atmosphere. There were more moon watchers than I had imagined. Everyone was setting up … Continue reading Blue Moon,
