Shelter from the Storm

Over the past weekend, my part of Australia was lashed with gale-force winds and, at times, torrential rain. Despite the wild weather, I did manage a couple of shots of the birds sheltering in the tree-tops.

The Common Bronzewing (Phaps chalcoptera) was sitting quietly when out of nowhere he was attacked by an immature Crimson Rosella (Platycercus elegans) and chased from his roost, which the Crimson Rosella then claimed!

Stalingrad – 2005

The following photo was taken in 2005 on a visit to Paris in France. It was taken about a year before I bought a digital SLR. I used my Nikon EM film camera loaded with Kodacolour.

From Green to Red

On my walk through the Botanic Gardens this morning, I saw that the Manchurian Pear tree (Pyrus ussuriensis) was transitioning to autumn colours, i.e. from green to red.

From Sunrise to Sunset

I have finally finished processing my photos from last weekend, which, of course, was a long weekend here in Australia. We spent our Easter break on a farm just outside Dunkeld which is the “gateway” to the Grampian Mountains and National Park.

The following photos were taken at that property.

A Walk in the Gardens

Weather-wise, Easter Saturday was perfect. So while visiting the city of Hamilton in western Victoria a visit to the Botanic Gardens was a pleasant experience.

Misty Morning

On the Easter long weekend, we stayed near Dunkeld on the edge of the Grampian National Park. The first morning of our stay was a misty one.
