colours of the Amalfi Coast ........

Positano   Amalfi Coast Italy  ~

 looking skywards through tangled wisteria vines 
into a pallet of buttery-yellow and rose-pink walls

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
"Beauty of Simplicity"

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

"write it on your heart
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"
                                                                                                 ~   Dead Poets Society ~

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
