Happy New Year.

Hi there,
just popping in to say Happy New Year. I have been editing photos today while keeping cool in the air conditioning and I found  some lovely ones. Tonight I will show you photos of bees and white butterflies on the flowers and come back later to show roses and birds.

Best wishes for a safe, healthy and happy New Year!

Seagulls and Pelicans.

hi there,
we out out fishing this morning at sunrise to beat the heat. We didn't catch many fish but I did get some photos of the seagulls and one pelican on the way back in.

the sunrise behind us as we went out to sea.

with this heat wave here in Perth I haven't been venturing out much so that is why we got up at 3.30am to be out before it got too hot. It was 28 deg on the coast and by the time we got home it was 38 deg. Big difference.

Merry Christmas

Today I went to visit my sister Marion.  She has the most beautiful Christmas tree and I wanted to try to take a nice photo of it. It was a lovely visit with my sister Sue as well and this is the photo I took... well one of many.

Merry Christmas to you.

Playing with water

hi there,
today I met up with the Friends in Focus group and we played with some water droplets and also soda water on flowers. I learnt lots about how to do things like this. Here are some of the shots I took today.
This first one is beaded water on a piece of glass with the daisy underneath and if you look closely at the droplets you can see the daisy in them.

with this next photo I have taken it with the usual settings on my camera and you can see the flower is dark and the sky is showing. In the following photo just by changing the settings you get to see the flower and white behind where the sky is. So different by just changing a few settings.

In the next 2 photos there is a small aquarium set up with a flower held upside down in it and then added soda water which causes the bubbles around the flowers. Such fun can be had with a few simple supplies and some help from a friend.

Thats all for today and as soon as I get to edit my photos from our family get together's, I will add them here too.
have a good week
