Dark Skies .... Purple Pylons ......

~ looking through Riverside Pedestrian Bridge
towards Morphett Street Bridge   ~
It was a moon-less night  - it was an empty sky
I think somewhere there's a song that goes something like that!!
I was pleased for the lack of light - which served to accentuate
purple pylons  -  across muddied waters

Shiraz amid Roses ...........

Our Barossa Valley is looking very lush at the moment
with its mile-upon-mile of vineyards laden with grapes
almost ripe for the picking

I understand wine-growers plant roses amid vines
for early detection of fungal diseases
but aesthetically they add much 
to the beauty of the valley

Lotus Pond ..... Summer 2015

 ~   Nelumbo Nucifera    Adelaide Botanical Gardens   ~ 
each Summer I take many trips to our beautiful sacred lotus pond
capturing delicate blooms in all stages  - venturing out very early
before the morning sun washes out those brushstrokes of pink
I love to zoom my camera lens into the undergrowth
taking a peek into a magical wonderland of fallen petals,
dragonflies alighting on fragile stems and illusive dusky moorhens
paddling silently amid the green
on visiting last week I met a lady who had brought along her artist's easel
 painting beautiful singular blooms onto canvas
 .... oh! to be able to paint the day

 ~   AAMI Stadium  West Lakes   ~
Just before sunrise and  the first of the serious rowers
are out on West- Lakes silently skimming across silver waters

Days of Wine & Roses ..........

upturned wine glasses with rose reflections  ~
"They are not long, the days of wine and roses
out of a misty dream
our path emerges for a while, then closes
within a dream"
                                 from the poem
                                  Vitae Summa Brevis 1896

Catch Of The Day ........


~   Port Lincoln Marina   ~  
tuna boats at anchor
blue skies - calm waters
I don't know if that makes any difference to these
sturdy vessels - built to withstand the rigours
of our Southern Oceans

Splish Splash ........

~   Henley Beach  ~ 
Another scorching hot day in my corner of the world
so I headed for the beach early for a bit of shore-walking
and noticing the little beach café was just opening
stayed awhile for coffee and croissant


I love capturing morning light on aged timber pylons
