Sunday Selections #66

I was reading my friend Achelois blog the Tensile Times, the other day and  Achelois was lamenting her lack of a view. I know a couple of other bloggers who read here have been stuck inside as well of late, as their recalcitrant bodies refuse to do as they are told. So this weeks Sunday Selections are all scenic photographs, for my stuck at home friends.

The Blurb

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.

The Photos

This photo of Cormorants was taken at Pipeclay Lagoon in 2010

This Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoo is on sentry duty, keeping an eye out for predators whilst the rest of the flock tear the bark off a couple of fallen trees in  their quest for a meal of grubs.

This is Mount Dromeday and the Derwent River, the smoke is coming from a forestry burn off, further up the Derwent Valley.

Driving down the Midland Highway, I drive down this road every day, sometimes numerous times a day depending on which school bus David is catching home.

Sunset through the branches of a tree in my front yard.

This is the view from the top of Mount Wellington.

How absolutely beautiful. I don’t know which one I love most. We very occasionally get the black cockatoos and they are truly welcome each time. I took photos last week of a solitary cormarent drying his wings. Just beautiful. And you always capture the sky superbly. The artists eye at work. Thank you. Lots.

Was looking at the first one trying to figure out what was on fire in the background, then realised the dark trees/shrubs look like smoke clouds. Go tired brain :)

love the sunshine poking through the clouds :)

I love the mountain/river/smoke photo; but the burning of the forest is sad.
Yellow tailed black cockatoos are always a welcome sight.
