Sunday Selections #14

I take a lot of photos and most of them are just sitting around in folders on my desktop not doing anything. I thought that a dedicated post once a week would be a good way to share some of these photos that  otherwise wouldn’t be seen by anyone other than me.

I am also remarkably absent minded and I put photos into folders and think  that I will publish them later on and then then I never do.

So I  have started a photo meme that anyone can join in and play as well. The rules are so simple as to be virtually non existent.

Just add your name and URL to the Mr Linky.

Publish your photos on your blog using the “Sunday Selections” title.

Link back here to me.

Easy Peasy.

    I wanted to photograph water this week, but it just wasn’t working for me.

    The cloud picture is gorgeous. How simple and beautiful are clouds? *sigh*

    • frogpondsrock April 10, 2011, 9:00 am

      I can spend ages just gazing at the clouds. I can never quite capture their depth and beauty with a photo. The water sends me off on major daydreams as well.

  • Elephant's Child April 10, 2011, 8:28 am

    Love the water pictures. And the clouds. And the trees. So much beauty in such simple things. Thank you.

  • sleepydwarf April 10, 2011, 8:41 am

    They are lovely shots Kim. I love the fence on especially (you know about my obsession with fences!) The water one is great, it’s such a womderful texture shot & I like the colour.

    • frogpondsrock April 10, 2011, 9:02 am

      The fence is out on a back road to Kempton. The land is very fragile out there and I am drawn to the dry country out that way.

  • Megan April 10, 2011, 8:44 am

    Pretty clouds. Love all the pics today can’t pick a favorite they are all amazing.

    • frogpondsrock April 10, 2011, 9:03 am

      I like them all as well Megan but if I had to choose, it would probably be the sky shot.

  • Sam @ Learn. Create. Do. April 10, 2011, 10:10 am

    ooooh these are all beautiful! I especially love the clouds…. I have a thing for clouds.

    • frogpondsrock April 10, 2011, 12:47 pm

      I have a thing for clouds as well, especially thunderheads.

  • river April 10, 2011, 10:28 am

    I love the serenity in this week’s selection.
    My favourite is the trees on the hilltop.

  • sharon April 10, 2011, 1:43 pm

    Gorgeous, thank you Kim.

    Our dry hilly bits of landscape are still drier than the photo you have here, no green at all – even though we have finally had some rain. Hopefully over the next few weeks that will change but it is pretty dire here right now.

    I think this week’s favourite for me is the cloud shot, gotta love those clouds 😉

    • frogpondsrock April 10, 2011, 6:39 pm

      That photo was taken at the beginning of last spring. I hope it rains for you soon Sharon. It was a pretty speccy sky that night

  • janet April 10, 2011, 1:56 pm

    I like all of them, Kim, but especially the plovers at the water’s edge. Beautiful reflections! We have piping plovers here on Cape Cod, beautiful little endangered shorebirds. I love them, but many folks resent them because they are protected and their nesting shuts down the beaches to “off-roading”…duh! Are those oysters on the driftwood?

    • frogpondsrock April 10, 2011, 6:41 pm

      People are the same all over the world aren’t they. They get grumpy when they have to give up a tiny bit of space for the wild life. Yes they are oysters.

  • Happy Elf Mom April 10, 2011, 2:10 pm

    The water is my fave!! I could spend hours looking at it as well… nature is so intricate. 🙂

  • Kris April 10, 2011, 2:51 pm

    Awesome idea! I’ve linked! I love photography and this is a great avenue for it 🙂

    I love the water shot!

    • frogpondsrock April 10, 2011, 6:43 pm

      Cool. I will be over shortly. This is also a great way to meet new people and check out some neat photos.

  • Mena April 10, 2011, 2:53 pm

    Easy peasy 🙂 thanks Kim that was fun!

  • Marie April 10, 2011, 3:26 pm

    Those trees on the hilltop brought a small tear of homesickness to my eye – it’s just so very quintessentially Aussie outback. I love the clouds at sunset the very best. I’m a great cloud observer as well and enjoy the drama of the constantly changing cloudscape. I never get tired of clouds.

    • frogpondsrock April 10, 2011, 6:45 pm

      It is a very Australian scene, there were sheep in the corner of the paddock as well. I never get tired of clouds either and I have a zillion cloud photos.

      • Marie April 11, 2011, 12:52 am

        Sheep too? *deep sigh* We had an ABC drama series, “Rain Shadow”, on the telly last year and I nearly cried every episode at the extraordinarily beautiful, iconic Australian landscape – the long paddocks, the sheep kicking up the dust, the eucalyptus trees and the incredible bird life. It’s all very seductive and I was “this close” to booking a ticket back home.

        • kim (frog ponds rock) April 11, 2011, 8:25 am

          Even the avatar for you on this blog looks a little homesick. I enjoyed Rain shadow as well.

  • HappeningsOfUs April 10, 2011, 4:08 pm

    I love all of them. Makes me want to go on a sunday drive through the country <3

    • frogpondsrock April 10, 2011, 6:46 pm

      Sounds like fun and reminds me of Sunday drives as a child to gather field mushrooms

  • Watershedd April 10, 2011, 4:20 pm

    The tidal flow … I had to look at while because it could be tree bark. Great pic. Amazing how nature mimics itself in other places sometimes. No pics from me this week. Fortescue Mining got up my nose so I had to go write a post about that instead. Think I’ll have to pick up my camera and go make some new pics soon.

    • frogpondsrock April 10, 2011, 6:48 pm

      Aaah What have they been doing? I have been having a few days off from the news.

  • Amanda April 10, 2011, 4:26 pm

    OK – I have joined in on the strength of loving your pic of the trees on the hill. Awesomeness squared.

  • kebeni April 10, 2011, 6:07 pm

    I love sky photos, I could spend hours staring at the clouds as they change

    • frogpondsrock April 10, 2011, 6:49 pm

      Me as well. I actually get stuck outside cloud watching and forget what I was supposed to be doing and wander off and do something else.

  • Deeleea April 10, 2011, 7:09 pm

    Finally joined in! Been meaning to since the conference..

    • frogpondsrock April 10, 2011, 8:55 pm

      I am pleased you joined in. Better late than never 😉

  • Francesca April 10, 2011, 7:39 pm

    These photographs definitely make me want to visit Australia!

  • gillian holding April 10, 2011, 7:47 pm

    I love the idea behind this, and it was fun browsing through random stuff to find today’s Sunday selection !

  • Jay from The Depp Effect April 10, 2011, 9:23 pm

    The water is beautiful – but I LOVE the one with the trees and the little hill. Such a peaceful, soothing, picture! Just beautiful.

    I’ve chosen abandoned objects for my theme this week.

    Good to see your meme is growing, slowly!

    • frogpondsrock April 10, 2011, 9:31 pm

      Thanks Jay I am glad as well 🙂 the photo is taken on a back road near here, I like driving home that way when I want to relax.

  • Avril April 10, 2011, 9:56 pm

    Love the new look blog!! Clouds are beautiful, water and landscapes equally so !

    • kim (frog ponds rock) April 11, 2011, 8:27 am

      Veronica did the blog make-over for me. I like it very much myself as well. I wanted to be able to reply to comments in the comments section and so V had to redesign the whole blog. She is a clever girl.

  • Cherie April 10, 2011, 10:48 pm

    Three generations, a birthday lunch, at historic, beautiful, Vaucluse House is my ideal Sunday Selection!
    Thank You as always Kim, hope all’s well for YOU ?

    • kim (frog ponds rock) April 11, 2011, 8:30 am

      I am fine this week, Cherie,I got all my sad out on the blog. It is my Mum’s birthday today so the lead up has had me crying and being a sook all over the place. But today I am ok. thanks.

  • Marylin April 10, 2011, 11:02 pm

    Ohhhhh the sky in the second photo is soooo beautiful! 🙂 x

    • kim (frog ponds rock) April 11, 2011, 8:31 am

      It was a great sky Marylin, that photo is over twelve months old and I remember my awe as I was outside taking photo after photo.

  • Nikki aka Widdle Shamrock April 13, 2011, 3:57 pm

    I really ‘felt’ these photos.
