Quick walk there and back late this afternoon.
THERE & BACK IS…….. TO THE RIVER & BACK (about 7-8 minutes, but I always take an hour). Had to hurry tonight as the sun was threatening to go behind the hill……and my elbow (slipped, whacked last Friday and x-rayed a few days ago) didn’t want to carry any weight. Neither did my neck or lumbar spine. Methinks I’ll have to find another hobby 🙂
A poor bird lay behind the back ‘gate’ and I wondered who the culprit was
Hmmmm…..not much light looking into the sun.
I couldn’t see what I was shooting until I downloaded the shot onto the computer
Plenty of water in the Frog’s Hollow pond.
But not much light on the hillside
A New Holland Honeyeater methinks.
Plenty of light along the river still. Downriver stays lit much later than upriver.
Upriver is getting a little less lit and maybe a llittle hazy with the promise of fog tomorrow morning.
One minute it seemed a little lacklustre
There were several female Splendid Fairy-Wrens in the distance but they kept flying away as I walked across the newly mown grass of Frogs Hollow.
Then I realised there were Red-browed Finches keeping the wrens company. Too far away to get a shot with the Sony a6000 & the 50-210mm lens
I’d better hurry up as the sun is dying quickly now.
….and the next minute the trees were lit by the dying sun.
Yesterday was the 17th May, seven years to the day since I bought a little Canon point & shoot camera and took up photography.
