around the lakes ....

~   late afternoon light over Mawson Lakes   ~

 crossing the bridge near the end of the lake
 is a good spot to pause and enjoy the vista  
 sometimes dark and moody skies with choppy waters
but more than not, blue skies reflected in still waters

behind closed doors .......

Glen Ewin Estate   Lower Hermitage  ~

ever wondered what lies behind closed doors ?
especially a crackled-paint ivy-clad door
that looks as if it hasn't been opened in a looo...ng time.

blue poles ......

~ Salt Lakes   Gillman   ~
do you ever find yourself deciding  between 2 photos ?
In most cases I quickly delete one -  so that the decision is done and dusted
or sometimes it's just much easier to post them both

poetry in motion ......

~   Magazine Road Wetlands  - Gillman   ~
there's something magical about the way banded-stilts
walk amid the shallows

~   long red legs stepping silently seeking out tasty morsels 
and now and again -  a little posing for the photographer  ~
Banded Stilts are endemic to Australia and quite unique
they nest colonially - lay white eggs - have white downy chicks
and put their young into crèches - how very modern !!

snow-globes and reindeers ......

~  Adelaide Christmas Pageant    ~ 
 amid the joy and colour of one of our best ever Christmas Pageants
blue skies - marching bands - cheeky clowns and 320,000 people
welcomed Santa to town

5am ........

~   henley beach jetty   ~

the hour before sunrise is the prettiest time of the day
it just means getting up very early to capture those soft morning hues
and to top it off,  there's always the reward of coffee and croissant
at the beach-side bakery
It was quite dark when I took these pics
so I used long exposure on a tripod which picked up
the pastels of morning skies while creating a soft silky sea-scape

lady in the yellow dress .......

spotted this lovely lady while lunching at a French Café
she seemed to blend in with the French Crème and lime green surrounds beautifully
and so of course I had to ask if I could take her photo

small window of opportunity ........

  Sunset from Kings College   ~
A scene like this lasts but a few seconds.
A small window of opportunity to grab my camera
before the sun silently dips below the horizon
                                    "Every sunset brings a promise
                                         of a new dawn"
                                                                                                                       - Ralph Waldo Emerson -

boy at the internet cafe .....

"texting in the city on a Saturday night"
I spotted this guy leaning on the sill of an internet café
and just thought he needed to be captured.
Did he mind ?   ..... not one bit
