Starfish

This shot was taken on Sydney Harbour, at a beach called Clontarf. I love starfish, for some reason, they make me smile.

Proud

I love kookaburras, they make me smile, I love their call….for it sounds more like a monkey than it does a bird song.

This shot was taken in Sydney a couple of months go. Do you remember a shot I took of a kookaburra with the light on its wings, staring out across Sydney Harbour, looking across to the City? Well, this was the same beautiful bird. Haven’t they got beautiful eyes!

Wild Goanna

This is a photo that I took whilst we were camping over Christmas, of a wild goanna, that came very close to our tent. I think it’s really beautiful!

Little Yellow Bird

As promised, here’s the photo of the little yellow bird that I took last weekend, but I chose another photo that I took on the same day to represent my day, in the 365 project.

Today was the first day in a year that I haven’t taken a photo and I must say, it feels really strange!

Over the next week, I will share some photos, like this one, of shots that I took during my 365 project, but didn’t make it in to the project itself. They will be put on here in no particular order… After or maybe during Easter, I will start my 365 project part 2, so stay posted. :-)

A Day of Tranquility

20120324-174348.jpg

Today has been such a lovely day, as went to a place called The Forest of Tranquility, which is located on the Central Coast, NSW, Australia, where we went for a 5km walk and then had a picnic.

Afterwards, we drove back along the coast and stopped off at a lake which is where I took this photo. Both the water and sky were so blue.

If I hadn’t taken this shot, my other choice for today,would have been a photo that I took of a yellow bird…it was really beautiful. Perhaps I will share with you, after my 365 project comes to an end.

This photo, of the pelicans ties in really with me and my passion of water, of peace and well….tranquility.

Out Came the Landing Gear…

It only took me 2 hours to get home today, so I made the most of my time and went to the local beach, hoping to photograph another sunset.

There I was, sitting on a rock, watching and listening to the waves and also looking up at the sky every now and again….monitoring how much longer I’d need to wait before the sky would start to change colour.

I had taken quite a few shots, of the cloud formation and was all poised, ready to take another shot, when right in my view came this rather haphazard pelican, who landed rather clumsily but then composed itself and went about its business….of floating and doing, well nothing really!

I am really pleased with this shot and as I uploaded it onto here, I couldn’t help but smile….I hope it has the same effect on you. :-)

You can also see that the clouds were just starting to change colour too….btw it was a nice sunset!
