Day 225/365: Sparkling Love

On the Saturday night we were camping, the kids (little & big!) had some fun with sparklers, and I had some fun with long exposures! I will have to dedicate this pic to Kate from Mick. Ain’t love grand?!!!

Day 224/365: A Pelican’s View

This is the last of the Patonga sunset images. I had to include one of this pelican perched on a post. There were actually four pelicans on posts seeming to be enjoying the sunset just as much as I was!

Day 223/365: Pink & Swirly

Another shot of the magnificent sunset from our camping trip to Patonga.  The wildlife seemed to be enjoying it too!

Pink & Swirly: Nikon D7000; f4; 1/60; ISO 400


Day 222/365: Patonga Creek Sunset

It was a mad dash over to the creek on the Saturday night we were camping to capture this magnificent sunset. I have to thank John for pointing it out to me, as I had my back to it. The gorgeous colour only lasted about 5 minutes and it was gone! There will be a couple more of this. Just breathtaking…

Day 221/365: Ripples & Reflections

It looks like Ethan is completely off in another world in this moment. It makes me feel all calm & relaxed!

Ripples & Reflections: Nikon D7000; f5.6; 1/320; ISO 100


Day 220/365: A Different Perspective

I admit I take a lot of photos of my little Ethan in trees. What can I say? It’s what he does, he’s a climber. Our little monkey. I am honestly surprised we haven’t had any trips to the hospital for broken bones! Anyway, this one is from a different perspective and I think the shot from down low works pretty well!

Day 219/365: Jack on the Beach

Caught Jack having a quick rest on the beach while we were out for a walk. He is such a cute kid!

Day 218/365: Nature’s Bells

I captured this flower on the bank of the creek at Patonga. I love the reds and the rich purply tops of the petals, and it really stands out nicely with the greenery in the background.

Nature's Bells: Nikon D7000; f5.6; 1/60; ISO 100


Day 217/365: Hello Cocky!

Still at Patonga, this little guy was playing up to the camera big time! And it turns out he is very photogenic! This is one of my best bird shots so far, there is definitely an art to bird photography that I will probably never conquer – too little patience and not a long enough lens for most shots.

Day 216/365: Perfect View

Walking back to camp with the sun shining I came across these two chairs, obviously placed for the perfect view when sitting there! I can just imagine sitting there with a nice cold drink on a summer afternoon watching the world go by….
