Friday Photo Challenge – network

I’ve already established that I’ve muddled two Friday Photograph Challenges to come up with one of my own! But that’s okay, isn’t it? It’s just a way of showcasing some of our photographs. Here’s another one from my 2016 trip to Australia which I took on the drive from Melbourne to Sydney. It’s of the Gippsland Lakes, Australia’s largest and most beautiful inland waterways. The Lakes are a network of lakes, marshes and lagoons covering over 600 square kilometres separated from the ocean by coastal dunes known as Ninety Mile Beach.

Friday Photo Challenge – ebb and flow

It’s official, I’ve muddled two Friday Photograph Challenges to come up with one of my own! But that’s okay, isn’t it? It’s just a way of showcasing some of our photographs. Here’s another one from my 2016 trip to Australia which I took of surfers on Manly Beach in January 2016.

I first visited here in September 2010 when I took the ferry from Circular Quay to the beach which gave me great views of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, two city icons.

Friday Photo Challenge – vast

I think I’ve muddled two Friday Photograph Challenges to come up with one of my own! But that’s okay, isn’t it? It’s just a way of showcasing some of our photographs. Here’s one from my 2016 trip to Australia which I took on the drive from Melbourne to Sydney at Wilson’s Promontory, affectionately known as The Prom by the Australians.

It’s a peninsula located about 200 km southeast of Melbourne, mostly covered by a national park, created more than a century ago. The park is known for its temperate forests, dunes and wild beaches, abundant wildlife and breathtaking views – just like this one!

 

Friday Photo Challenge – bloomin’

What a fabulous burst of colour! Please don’t ask me the names of any of these flowers because I will not be able to tell you. This is when I could do with bringing my mother back. She’d be able to tell us everything we wanted to know and more……

This Sunday is Mother’s Day in France. My mother adored flowers and I would often buy her an extravagant  bunch to celebrate Mothering Sunday. I think these would make a fine bunch of blooms. Don’t you?

Friday Photo Challenge – growing

Today is decidedly unspring-like. Indeed it has been overcast all day. Not entirely unexpected at this time of year, but generally towards the end of May temperatures are a couple of degrees warmer.

We all feel better with a bit of sunshine, it lifts our mood. Must be all that Vitamin D!

Of course it’s the mixture of rain and sunshine at this time of year which helps everything to grow so lushly.
