Petrel Cove ..........



Petrel Cove - Fleurieu Peninsula

Sky watching along the south coast
 this is a pretty little cove but those big waves rolling in
from the back can be very unpredictable
which makes it a dangerous swimming and surfing area

Summer Morning ....


~  Henley Beach Jetty  ~


A pinkish glow along the horizon heralds another blistering hot day
even at 5am there are people up and about enjoying the cool of early morning

Before The Day Breaks .......


Boston Bay - Port Lincoln



Looking out across this watery vista reminded me of 
"The Rime of the Ancient Mariner"

Water-Water everywhere but not a drop to drink !!
                                                                                   Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Thankfully I had remembered to take my water container along with me
on this early morning photo-shoot

Sellicks Beach ......


Sellicks Beach  -  Fleurieu Peninsula


a long walk along this rather remote but beautiful coastline
different light and shade with variable skies
and an incoming tide which I realized might leave me
stranded on the rocks or worse
made for an interesting day out with my Canon

Blue skies and Roses ..........



~ coorong national park ~

this week in my home city of Adelaide
we have had blue skies and soft warm days
perfect for a bit of birding
and of course - smelling the roses


~ red-necked avocet ~


I was delighted to spot this beautiful shore-bird  along the Coorong
long tall blue stockinged legs
and a long curved elegant beak





~ pierre-de-ronsard ~

 this old fashioned rose was bred by the famous
rose growers in the south of France - Meilland
It's one of the prettiest climbing roses
 As you know  - I love all things French
And I just had to buy it

Spring Time ........



~  wild roses growing in my garden ~

One of the prettiest seasons 
when roses bloom - little spring treasures delight our days
 skies are clear and blue




~ anemone - from the buttercup family ~

Early Australiana ......


 Mikkira Cottage  ~

many early settlers and their families would have lived in little
stone cottages like this in rural South Australia in the 1800's
4 rooms and 2 large fire-places ensured a cosy environment in the winter

dreaming of warmer days .....




~   Henley Beach in Autumn   ~


Because it is the middle of winter - cold and damp !!
I find myself thinking back to a few weeks ago
when autumn sunshine filled my life
and it was so nice to be out beach-walking 
enjoying the sun on my face and clicking away with my Canon
