Hi….I am not dead but I AM sick in bed with what feels like the start of a cold or flu…so I thought this a suitable time to find my way back here and post something.
I think I’ll post some pictures since that has been my recent activity worthy of any mention.
I took THIS picture today in fact because I was so bored and needed to do something other than feel sorry for myself.
I think snails can be quite beautiful and they make good subjects although I must admit some are a bit camera shy and others are a bit comatose.
Not so long ago hubby and I went on a weekend away because he has so much work travel coming up and we needed some alone time. Unfortunately he became really sick with this cold or flu thing…..hence why I am now sick. But I did get some photo’s anyway even though he was dying in the car.
This is Lithgow Blast furnace. One of my favourite ruins to photograph. There are not many ruins to take pictures of these days.
We went for a meander up through Jenolan caves very early one morning and I was stunned to come across this beautiful blue pool – made so by the limestone. So magical and enchanting!
As I squatted down to take pictures I was unaware that right next to me was a duck who looked at me with one eye as if to say “Get on with it then! I’m not bloody moving at this hour of the morning!”
Then we went on to explore Oberon and its surrounds. Lots of pine plantations there and we struck fog even though by then it was later in the morning. I LOVE fog and these pictures were particularly apocalyptic taken in an area that had been logged. Quite sad really because we saw dozens of dead wombats on the side of the road. Forced out? Hit by logging trucks?
If you look close you’ll see a goat in this one.
More gloomy fog on the dirt road as we made our way to Kanangra walls- a lookout.
Then we found the look out. These types of places don’t do much for me personally. Seen one wall of rock, seen ’em all. If there had of been some fog THERE or a big eagle soaring across the sky it would have piqued my interest but as it was all I had to work with was my hubby standing FAR to close to the edge for my liking!
On the way back I took a few pics of the lovely moss. I like moss as much as I like fog but it does start to get a bit “green” after a while.
And before you become queasy with all the green I’ll leave you with this little splash of colour in the pine forest. I love fungi too….
