Photos – our trip along the Murray River

We saw and experienced so much travelling along the Murray River that it’s impossible to write about it all. So here are the photos. Enjoy

Explore the elements – earth, air, fire, water

Is there a better place than Australia to explore the elements? The extremes in Australia are celebrated in poetry and song, and have been embedded in our psyche for thousands of years. The elements here – earth, air, fire, water – are the basis of life and culture. Aboriginal society knew the importance of the …

Kangaroos. With photos

It’s my first blog of 2015 so I feel this should be something ‘important’. So what better than kangaroos?

Miniature roses

I promise this blog won’t turn into one just about my garden, but lately it seems that’s where my energy has been focussed. That and taking photos of babies, but I know you don’t want to see that here. In a couple of days I’ll tell you all about my luxury cruise on Sydney Harbour.

Getting over the winter blues

For the first time in years I didn’t go away anywhere this winter. Which made it seem like winter just went on forever. I don’t care who says Sydney winters are mild – I’m not good in winter at all. Winter for me is like one long episode of PMS, and the longer it goes …

Drought, flood and changes in the dam

Every time we go to the farm I’m struck anew with the changes that happen in a short time. The most striking of these is the big dam. Sadly, this time we only saw the Murrumbidgee at night, but in the moonlight I could tell it was full. And of course, that means the dam …

Sunrise over Sydney Airport

I used to love flying. It meant that I was going away somewhere and I love to travel. I also love that feeling of being up above the earth, above the clouds, just …. well, flying. But I hate the reality of sitting in a small, enclosed space, barely able to move for hours on …

It’s not a photo session without macro photography

It wouldn’t be a photo session without some macro photography. One of the things I love about photos at the farm is the fences. Not only are they great in long shots, but there are always opportunities for amazing close ups. Spiders particularly love the barbed wire on the top fence wire, and use it …

Australia, a land of extremes

Australia really is a land of extremes, and vicious weather cycles. Of drought and flooding rain is right. I notice this much more since I’ve been going to the farm, where weather cycles can make or break people. Nowhere is it better demonstrated than these photos taken in January then again in April this year.

Discovering Lake Illawarra’s secret places

I’ve been getting lazy lately.  Actually – lazy is my natural state. I think I was a cat in another life. Given the option I could easily sit around all day, chasing the sun, eating chocolate and drinking champagne. OK, I know cats don’t eat chocolate and drink champagne, but they do like the good …
