200th Photo!

This is the windsock for the helicopter pad from the ambulance bay at work, taken on one of my breaks on night shift. The camera was handheld as I didn't have my tripod with me.


This is the inside of a "double" Datura flower looking from below. This entailed me lying on my back in the middle of my cousin's beautiful garden!

Bird On A Wire.

The only way to capture a swallow is through a window!

A Lavender White.

Last Rose.

This is possibly the last rose off this bush, I accidently destroyed the roots while doing a spot of gardening........

Warrens' Handiwork.

These elephants are made out of scrap corrugated iron by one of my talented work mates. He has a variety of other life size animals.

Unfortunately the day is overcast, so the colours on this cicada aren't particuarly vivid.

White Butterfly.

I'm not sure where or what this butterfly has been up to, but one of it's wings is a little ratty.

These are a section of the hills out the back of here. I have captured the cows at the bottom of the image to give some scale to the hills, which are in desperate need of some rain.

Plastic, Plastic and More Plastic.

This is a small section of the hundreds of soft drink bottles at the local dump.

The Shade Tree.

I liked the combination of the lonely tree, the freshly mowed paddocks, with the sheep the blue sky and clouds.

Large Patchwork.

Signs of a dry summer.
