As Darkness Begins to Fall

As Darkness Begins to Fall

As Darkness Begins to Fall

On this day, as darkness begins to fall, a sense of its rare beauty permeates me. Most evenings I’m indoors at this time, and often I can only glimpse its beauty through the windows.

So it comes as an unmissable opportunity to capture this quiet image.

Enjoy!

Sunset in Winter: Sydney, Australia

30 Jul

Sunsets vary widely in their beauty. Some are quite spectacular, while others are almost non-events.

In Sydney, the winter sunsets tend to be delightful.

Here is one that I recently photographed.

Enjoy!

Strolling around my Favourite Place

Chicki on the promenade

Cockatoos flying

Kookaburra

What a lovely morning! Sydney’s run of Spring-like weather continues, beckoning  us outdoors, to see and feel its glory.

Chicki, my little white dog,  and I strolled along the promenade, besides the river. We seemed quite alone, save for a flock of distant white cockatoos, some magpies, kookaburras, and a few tiny swallows perching on the net of the swimming baths.

For a while, only the sounds of the birds disturbed the peace: but there playful and busy noises in no way detracted from the beauty of the scene.

What a charming, relaxing place!

By the River

24 May

I looked across the river, towards the railway bridge a mile away. The sky seemed to emanate a special kind of beauty: the gentle beauty of heavily clouded days, with chinks of colour shining through.

Seemingly of their own accord, my eyes turned to the water, and instantly I gazed upon the wondrous reflections of the sky, especially those cheery shimmers of blue that mingled amongst the grey.

I turned away, taking in the trees: the tall gums, the petal-free Christmas bush. A flock of white cockatoos swooped, finally landing on a distant shore.

The skies are grey, but life is good.
