Whoosh .............


~   Victoria Square   ~
 
Just sharing a little whoosh ....  from my city centre
This week's assignment for photography
was  "Speed" and so it meant walking a tightrope
between too much whoosh ... and in some cases
no whoosh... at all.
 
 
 
Hoping you all have a wonderful week
To see what's happening in other corners of the world

Picnic in Brittany ......


 
This lovely couple were enjoying a picnic
or as the French would say .... le Pique-Nique
Sooo... very French!!
 
 
Unfortunately it has been cold and wet in my corner of the world
and I've not been out with my camera
so today my posting is of a pic taken in June along the banks
of the River-Rance in Brittany France

Almost Spring .........


 
For us down here in the Southern hemisphere
Spring is almost knocking at our door
Grey and moody skies are giving way to
softer skies which have that pretty blush of pink.

Walking in the Rain .....


~   Australian native flora   ~


 I hadn't planned to take a walk in the rain
but on driving past Morialta Conservation Park
on a very wild, wet and stormy day
 I noticed a break in the clouds and decided to
take to the hills with brolly and camera in hand.
I soon forgot about hailstones and muddied boots
and delighted in the beauty of our native flora and fauna.

A cuddly koala bear nestled in and snoozing amid the eucalyptus gums   ~

There were many Koala's along the walking trails
and it occurred to me that they had most probably
made their way down closer to the floor of the park
in order to shelter from the high winds

It's moments like this one expects to hear a symphony orchestra start up
 playing Edvard Greig's Morning Mood

Captured on a crispy cold morning
when my hands were as blue as the still cold waters.

Cockle Train ........


 
Steam-Ranger's  -  "Duke of Edinburgh"  departing from Victor Harbour
 
All Aboard !! 
 This historic steam loco journeys about 12 kilometres along the edge of the 
Great Southern Ocean to the quaint township of Goolwa 
After a short walk around town it's re-boarding and then back
again with wonderful views looking out to sea.
 
We were sooo.... fortunate to spot beautiful Southern -Right whales cruising not far from the shore 
   who every now and again ( to our delight ) blew sprays of water from their dual blow-holes
a spectacular and unique sight and made for a wonderful Day-Out!
