Beauty of Simplicity ......



"Simplicity is beautiful
it makes a picture readable"

I hope that you  can see through the simplicity of this pic
to the peace and calmness of a beautiful Australian morning




This is my contribution to

sunshine after rain .....


Belair National Park   ~

Australian National Parks are a great place to visit
after rain with wildlife abounding

This cuddly koala was very wet from a recent down-pour
and we found him hanging out to dry on one of the lower
eucalyptus tree trunks



A little miss making friends of the 
feathered variety

cute gaggle of geese - ducks and even a little water-hen in the medley

North Haven .....


~ North Haven Marina  ~

trying out my new circular polarizing filter on a rather bright sunny morning
 it is supposed to cut out glare and act like sunglasses
for the camera lens

beachcombing .............




~   Grange Beach   ~

It is said that every photo must have a subject
but sometimes just the colours of a day  - are enough

that every day is the best day in the year"

A Touch of Green ........



~   Rymill Park Lake  ~ 

This park-land area on the eastern edge of our CBD
is always well tendered and maintained
******

While I bided  time sipping coffee and reading the daily paper
at the lake-side café -workmen were planting out surrounding beds
with pretty snap-dragons

Carpe Diem .....



Le Carpe Diem Creperie  ~

what a great name for an eatery - little bit of Paris in our city centre
and the Monsieur kindly obliges by letting me think
he understands my faltering French when I say
"une crêpe avec du citron et le sucre s'il vous plaît"






"Gather ye rosebuds while ye may
Seize-the-Day ! - make your lives extraordinary"

before the sun rises ....




Too early for pretty chocolate-box sunrise captures
I arrived before the sun had risen
with not a hint of pink or gold to be seen.

My only option was long-slow exposure shots
which have a certain beauty of their own

falling petals .....




Walking past the lotus pond in our Botanic Gardens last week
I noticed that the last of the petals were slowly dropping
and this pretty space would soon become
a very different vista.
