I love reflections. There’s something calming and appealing about them.

In this photograph, one can see boat-sheds and Wattle in bloom, all reflected on the river.

Enjoy!

Golden Light on Centrepoint Tower

31 Aug

Not so long ago I was on the spot to record this rather delightful image. The sun going down created a warm glow, highlighting the Tower, especially.

For those not familiar, this Tower is in the heart of the city of Sydney.

Sincere thanks, Sonya Heaney, for this review.

LOVE, DESIRE AND BETRAYAL – Margaret Lynette Sharp

This is a collection of Australian novellas about young love, distances, engagements and outside temptations.

MICHAELA BETRAYED This novella, featuring an Australian protagonist, doesn’t end up where you might expect. Shorter reads with romantic themes can be hard to tackle, as there’s not a lot of time to develop a relationship. In this particular case, the focus is more on the heroine of the story and her growth as a person, which really helps.

Nothing but cloudy skies…

Well, almost.

Not to complain, though. Misty days can be exceptionally beautiful.

Here’s a scene down by the river.

What’s This? A Striated Heron

A Striated Heron

A Striated Heron

I was stumped when I first spotted this wary-looking bird. It had been making its way along the shore, crouching as it stalked its prey of small crabs that live in the mudflats there.

Armed with a number of photographs I’d taken of it, I sought to find out its identity. And I did: it’s a Striated Heron.

It isn’t  common around here. Despite visiting this area very often, I have spotted it only a few times.

I’ll bet the crabs are pleased about this…

Here we have a pair of Rainbow Lorikeets surveying their handiwork: their family home.

But subsequent movements by them prove that it isn’t quite finished. :)
