Another Year Gone!

Wishing you all a very happy and prosperous 2019.

Sunday 30 December 2018

Another Bee.

We have lots of bees around at present, such a lovely sight.

Monday 24 December 2018

Misty Hills.

This was one early morning, just a shame there was no colourful sunrise.

Saturday 22 December 2018

Yum, Roast Lamb.

This seasons young magpies enjoying the lamb remains on the bone. They have had spent a lot of time and many return visits cleaning it up.

Saturday 15 December 2018

Back Soon.

Unfortunately things have gone a little off course and am hoping to have more photos shortly.

Thursday 29 November 2018

A Bee.

It was lovely to see so many bees out and about today, although these were quite small.

Tuesday 20 November 2018

Black Lamb.

This lamb is only 4 months old and as big as it's mother. It grazes for long spells without lifting it's head, and then snoozes again. I converted this to black + white as it shows the unusual facial markings better, but unfortunately the white strip around it's ears isn't that noticeable.

Tuesday 13 November 2018

A Weed.

This weed was very pretty, but it was only slightly larger than a pin head.

Sunday 11 November 2018

The Jersey Crew.

The happy crew on their way to check out happenings across the road.

Saturday 10 November 2018

Jersey Calf.

A neighbour's calf came to investigate what we were doing, we were about 30m away. I love the heart on her forehead.

Monday 5 November 2018

Baby Magpie.

We have two young magpies around and they're very entertaining as they learn to feed and play. The key to not being swooped is to feed them.

Saturday 27 October 2018


What an absolute joy to see this Rosella land about 50m away and had to rush to get my camera and take a pic before it flew off.

Wednesday 24 October 2018

Black & Tan Spider.

I found this on the toi toi/pampass grass, and it was a great subject for getting back into macros.

Tuesday 23 October 2018

Iris Arrangement.

I liked the one old and one new iris arrangement silhouetted against the window.

Saturday 20 October 2018

The Other Morning.

I have cropped the sun out of this one to show the rays and I like the mystical morning.

Thursday 18 October 2018

The Last Tulip Petal.

Such a beautiful flower and colour.

Tuesday 16 October 2018

This Morning.

First interesting morning we've had in a while.

Friday 12 October 2018

Large Fly.

So ugly and so many of them appearing at present, the down side of warmer weather.

Tuesday 9 October 2018

Half An Iris.

Interesting flowers, they often look messy as a whole flower, but half looks a little more elegant.

Tuesday 11 September 2018

Working Dogs.

This crew were hitching a ride on the back of a quad to go and round up some sheep.

Tuesday 4 September 2018

Wood Remains.

It's interesting to see how a piece of wood burns and breaks down.

Friday 31 August 2018

Lamb Siesta.

He looked blissfully happy sleeping in the sun and stayed like that for a very long time.

Wednesday 29 August 2018

Lamb Portrait.

It was very interested in what I was doing, and still has a droplet of water on it's chin.

Monday 27 August 2018

No Rainbow Gold.

The rainbow was so bright and all the colours were seen.

Wednesday 15 August 2018

Back Soon.

I'm going to be away for a short while, please don't wander too far away.

Tuesday 14 August 2018

Another Reflection.

More tables and a car reflection in a large puddle.

Sunday 12 August 2018

Beaded Web.

We had a very heavy mist this morning, it certainly has jazzed the web up a bit.

Thursday 9 August 2018

New Lambs.

These lambs are not even two hours old, and I took this through a window so I didn't disturb their sleep.

Sunday 5 August 2018

Burning Wood.

It's interesting the layers and patterns that appear when a rotten piece of wood is burnt.

Wednesday 1 August 2018

Sheep Silhouettes At Dawn.

A beautiful dawn and then the sheep decided to get in the action.

Monday 30 July 2018

Frozen Puddle.

This is one I took several years ago and have not come across anything like this again.

Saturday 28 July 2018

Table Reflection.

We'd had a lot of rain this day, and the sun came out briefly and iot was a great reflection to capture.

Wednesday 25 July 2018

More Tractor Spares.

I converted one to black & white and couldn't decide which one I liked best.

Friday 20 July 2018

Tractor Cemetry.

I'm pleased to see that someone has taken the time and trouble to disassemble these old tractors so others can enjoy their faithful tractor a little longer.

Monday 16 July 2018

Gold Hills.

I like the way the afternoon sun lights up various sections of the hills.

Friday 13 July 2018


She is quite happy to have her photo taken this time,  usually she turns her back on me.

Wednesday 11 July 2018

Standing Wave Cloud.

This is the first one of these I have seen, they're unusual.

Sunday 8 July 2018


Best we've had in quite some time.

Saturday 7 July 2018

Flying Economy Class.

A dinky can of Baltic sardines.

Sunday 1 July 2018

Playful Pups.

I love watching pups developing their skills, and pretending they're tough.

Thursday 28 June 2018


Interesting creatures. They move amazingly fast, eat huge amounts of food, and I believe it's not a good sign to see them out in daylight.

Saturday 23 June 2018

Late Sun.

A beautiful light on the hill we have called "the bum".

Thursday 21 June 2018

Sleepy Pup.

Feeling safe and warm, it's time for a snooze.

Saturday 16 June 2018


Such cute, shy little birds. I managed to capture this one through a window.

Thursday 14 June 2018

Two Pups.

Trying to see what they're missing out on.

Tuesday 12 June 2018

Bucket Of Pups.

This was their first outing to another house, and they were very pleased to be back in their cosy container.

Sunday 10 June 2018

Six Week Old Pup.

So cute! Mum a Huntaway, dad, lots of bits.

Thursday 7 June 2018

Back Soon.

I am not a fan of the cold, wet, windy weather we have at present.

Monday 4 June 2018

The Universe In A Car Wash #3

This will be the last of the car wash photos. I like the way the suds look as if there are little faces in there.

Saturday 2 June 2018

The Universe In A Car Wash #2

The suds do make interesting abstracts.

Friday 1 June 2018

The Universe In A Car Wash #1

This made sitting in the car during a wash far more interesting.

Monday 28 May 2018


This looked quite inviting from about 60m away.

Friday 25 May 2018

Larger Locust & Spider.

It's fascinating finding and watching the spider at work.
