Sunday Selections #20

Wow! Sunday Selections has been going for twenty weeks.

Thank you to everyone for playing along with me and sharing your photos and your stories.

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.

Here are my photos for this week.

    Just wonderful. The third one gives me vertigo though. No wonder I get travel sick if a photo can do me in. But thank you – beautiful and inspiring as always.

  • Amanda May 22, 2011, 9:41 am

    I got a good laugh out of the first one .
    …. and I am in love with the sunny-cloudy-mountain-lakey-reflectiony-bokehy-sunburst one. We honeymooned in Tassie and it reminds me so much of our walk around Dove Lake…. a most romantic spot.

      The upside of a good working OH&S policy in the studio is that I can practice my Darth Vader impersonations to my hearts content 🙂 I won’t shatter your illusions and tell you what is really happening in that fourth photo then.

      • Amanda May 22, 2011, 11:55 am

        OK now I need to know what is happening….

        • frogpondsrock May 22, 2011, 7:24 pm

          It is the smoke from a forestry burn off. They burn what is left after they have clearfelled a coupe, it isn’t good. Though Forestry Tasmania will tell you it is worlds best practice.

          • Amanda May 22, 2011, 8:09 pm

            World’s Best Practice??? HAHAHA ,…. I used to work for forestry in Qld (as researcher) and it was widely accepted that Australia used sustainable forest practices …. except for Tassie. Tas “Forest Ecologists” were regarded as a joke.

            • frogpondsrock May 22, 2011, 8:49 pm

              Sadly it isn’t a very funny joke at all.

    I love the swan. It’s been an interesting week photographically!!!

    • frogpondsrock May 22, 2011, 10:41 am

      Thanks 2paw, I have been trying to get a decent photo of a black swan for my friend Jientje in Belgium, but they are tricky little buggers and swim away really fast every time I point the camera them.

    • Kelly May 23, 2011, 6:01 am

      I like the swan too! And especially the mountains with the sun in the horizon. Takes a second or so for me to define due to the reflection.

  • Watershedd May 22, 2011, 10:43 am

    Still love the Darth Vader look! The bird in the tree is probably my favourite, but it’s a very close choice between it and the Smoke over Mt Dromedary.

    Taking a leaf from your book again this week a gone silent with my pics this week. I have things I want to say, but it’s not time yet.

      Silence is good. It is the year of the Rabbit as well. So I need to remember to approach things sideways rather than just bashing my way through. It is hard as I am prone to act on impulse. Love to you my friend. xox

    PS – the comment luv ain’t up to date (but thanks for the extra post-plug!)

  • Megan May 22, 2011, 10:53 am

    Absolutely love the fourth picture. And the last one. It is so dark but I love it.

  • river May 22, 2011, 11:22 am

    LOVE the sunshine over the lake and the blackbird in the tree, the diagonal one is interesting.

    • kim (frog ponds rock) May 23, 2011, 11:58 am

      The bird is a Currawong busily eating the elderberries. I took that photo from inside the house, that is my view directly behind the computer. It is a bit blurry in patches (dirty window) but I like the blurriness.

  • Marita May 22, 2011, 12:33 pm

    😀 Love that first picture, gave me such a great big smile.

  • Kakka May 22, 2011, 1:40 pm

    Great photos as usual and the first one certainly bought a much needed smile to my face. There is something totally surreal about the lake and cloud photo – almost mystical. xxx

  • Sam @ Learn. Create. Do. May 22, 2011, 2:04 pm

    Great photos as always. I especially love the one of Mt Dromedary. It made me WOL…. wow out loud 🙂

  • del May 22, 2011, 3:15 pm

    Your photos are amazing, from beautiful to downright spooky. I think my fave is the spooky one this week.

  • Marie May 22, 2011, 3:52 pm

    I see that the subjects of the first two photos both have the same look in their eyes 🙂 The sea marker makes me smile – I spend a lot of time watching out for them when we sail in buoyed channels here. Though it’s intereswting to see one in wood. Because the sea freezes over in winter here, they can’t use wood as the shifting ice would crush it. All of our markers are weighted plastic, chained to a buoy stone set on the sea floor. Mind you, the ice moves them as well, but they are cheaper to replace.

    But my absolute favourite photo today is the wonderful sun over the lake and the mountains. It brings back lovely memories of a trip around Tasmania, especially around Cradle Mountain.

  • Mena May 22, 2011, 4:02 pm

    Love the black swan. I love the mountain shot with the sun w/the star burst effect. Beautiful.

  • Rah May 22, 2011, 8:20 pm

    The one of you a brilliant! It’s the hint of crazy in your eyes that wins me over 🙂
    Finally FINALLY entered SS for the first time tonight!

  • Marylin May 22, 2011, 11:09 pm

    Brilliant photos! Love the crazed look you’ve got going on there… looks quite similar to my crazed look! 😉

    Also, *adore* the landscape! (#4)

    MWAH! xx

  • kebeni May 23, 2011, 1:16 pm

    gorgeous photos kim. I really love the fourth one

  • Casdok May 23, 2011, 6:42 pm

    I wonder how many photos never see the light of day. Great idea!

  • janet May 24, 2011, 9:56 am

    I love the black bird and berries, and the first one, too. Did you photograph yourself?
