Adelaide Crows .... a fitting tribute ......




 
Adelaide Oval ablaze in red - blue-and gold
a fitting tribute to the Adelaide Football Club's coach
who was tragically murdered in his home this weekend

a different perspective .......



 

 
a little sunshine on a cold winter day
brings a twinkle to spent waves
and a softness to our winter skies.

seashells take on a very different appearance
when photographed from ground level
great for the pic but not so great for this photographer

upside down ......



 

Yesterday on passing by an almond orchard near home
I noticed the first of the beautiful blossoms
so skidded to a halt to take a few pics
 
I was delighted to find this gossamer winged busy bee
sipping nectar ... sometimes upside down
and sometimes downside up!!

Xanthorrhoea .......



~   Morialta Conservation Park   ~
  Xanthorrhoea  ... or as more commonly known Yakka
nestled in against a deep earthy rock face

the end of the day ....



~   Brighton Beach   ~
 
A friend and I were taking coffee and a few tasty morsels
along trendy Jetty Road -  heading back to the car
we were delighted to be greeted by this glorious winter sky spectacle

trees ....



 
 
trees in the hills make for an interesting copse
some having lost their summer clothes
 taking on that almost greyish ghosty appearance 
others still in full colour
 

 
I tried a little messing with apps ..... hope you like it !!

what the night hides .........


 
festival theatre complex and surrounds   ~
 
 
I guess most cities look better in the night-light
and my city of Adelaide is no exception
it tends to hide the scruffy bits

pretty blue wren



~ mount lofty botanic gardens   ~
 
walking in the hills on the weekend  my sister spotted this little blue wren
with his feathers all puffed up - fortunately he paused on the log
just long enough for me to alter my Canon settings and voila
a portrait in blue !!

mossy log ........



~ mount lofty botanic gardens   ~
 
 scatterings of colour on a cold frosty day
with soft sunlight trickling through damp undergrowth
high-lighting the last of the autumn leaves
