just before sunrise ......





just before sunrise is the prettiest time of the day for photography
I left the shutter open and my camera has picked up soft pastels of pink and aqua
which were almost un-noticed to the natural eye.
Of course coffee in a nearby café after
was very welcome

Lotus Blooms .......




Sacred Lotus flowering in our Botanic Gardens

Every year I look forward to photographing these beautiful blooms
and so very early this morning as I rounded the bend with umbrella
tripod and camera in hand , and was delighted to see a pond of tall pretty pink blooms
swaying in the morning breeze

Jacaranda Time ....





It's Jacaranda time again and Adelaide's streets are awash with blooms
These pics were taken in and around the University Grounds
which provide the perfect back-drop for a purple haze




Wishing all my blogger - friends at Our World Tuesday
a wonderful and blessed Christmas - Time

 early morning along Semaphore Jetty
with just a few fishermen dangling their lines
hoping for a good catch

Water Sculpture .......


~  Henley Jetty Water Sculpture  ~

Shortly after sunset at that beautiful time of day
this metal sculpture which doubles as a shower
for beach -goers - reflects golden colours
from the sinking sun

Quack Quack ........



Isn't life funny  - when it's freezing cold I look for cosy environments
and can't wait for Summer but after 2 quite warm days
I'm ready for a cool change and commence seeking out cool green pastures.

Pacific Black ducks are quite common in Adelaide
but I always think they have such tranquil faces

The Last of the Spring Blossoms .....



~ Mount Lofty Botanic Gardens ~

This pic was taken last month with just a touch of
the remaining spring blossoms intermingled with fine tracery of bare branches

Soon this vista will 
 be a mass of differing shades of green
and I will love it just as much

wild bird wednesday ......


royal spoonbill   ~

Birds in flight are an amazing sight - this cream winged spoonbill
had been fossicking along the shoreline of the Coorong Estuary
when it suddenly took flight
I was sitting waiting to spot avocets and stints
but was more than delighted to photograph this lovely bird
with it's wings outstretched

Twilight Time ......



~ Largs Bay Jetty ~

The loveliest time on a Summer day
is just after the sun has set
everything is soft and a kind of hush
settles over the world

Along the Railway Track ..........



~ a muddle of weeds and random field flowers  ~

While trying to get a better view from where to photograph
St Kilda Salt Lakes - I walked along the edge of this old railway track
and realised that the muddle of weeds and field flowers before me
had a kind-of beauty of there own
