Another Year Gone!

Wishing you all a very happy and prosperous 2019.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Larger Locust & Spider.

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