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 is full as well – a big change from when we were there only a few months ago.

I’ve just realised that it’s been over a month since I wrote anything on this blog, because I’ve just been ‘too busy’.
It’s not that I haven’t been travelling, but my travel has been up and back between Sydney and Wollongong to work. I haven’t even taken any photos just for pleasure!
So the other day, on one of my rare days just to kick back and do nothing, I was sitting on my front veranda, in the warm afternoon sun of winter, just relaxing and enjoying looking at my garden. The sun was setting over the escarpment in the distance casting a golden glow over everything and my African daisy was closing up for the night. Like a toddler, it appeared to be fighting that moment when it would be fully asleep, staying open just enough to get the late afternoon rays.

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 to build their webs.

I stretched my arms and legs (we’d been in the car for 4 hours), looked around and sighed. It was still, quiet and the stars were all just appearing in the clear sky.
We started unpacking the car and I checked the thermometer. It told another story: it was 9oC. It’s fascinating how your perceptions change according in different situations.
