Such a beautiful day yesterday (Sunday) here in Melbourne and the first round of the Melburn Cyclocross was on at Lysterfield Lake Park. My husband and I went to spend some of the afternoon there to watch the bike race and for me to get my hand ...―
This is the boat ramp at Lysterfield Lake Park. Might not ordinarily be an exciting image but I liked the still lake and mist with the reflection in the image. There was a canoeist on the lake while I was there but on other days there have been ...―
I’m determined to get closer to this bird but it will take some time. I missed an opportunity on Saturday when I came across it suddenly – I hadn’t expect it, and neither had the bird. He took off before I could get some good ...―
There were quite a few fairly big roos out when I was walking at the park too. These I made sure I kept my distance from. They would definitely tower over me when standing up right and they can do serious damage to you too. So I remained alert the...―
Well, he wasn’t really. He was busy chewing on grass and watching me as I came closer. But he does look like he’s talking to me doesn’t he? I chose this as my ‘pic of the day’. This one stayed right on the edge of the...―
I went back to the park this morning (Saturday) and even though the forecast was similar to last Saturday, the fog didn’t lift till well after I’d left the park. So I spent a couple of hours there wandering around but not with good ...―
And of course, as the sun rose, and the mist disappeared, the bird life became active and a chorus of different bird songs rang out through the whole area. It was lovely to listen to. This noisy miner was busy exploring the tree for food but took ...―
As the sun rose everything took on its full colour and the area was bathed in bright light. Really beautiful. Especially so because we’re in the middle of winter here. The following day we were back to grey skies, wind and rain.―
When I got to the lake there was mist everywhere but as the sun rose that began to dissipate or burn off. In the first image the sun hadn’t yet hit the area but you can see the mist is fading or lifting. In this second, the sun has reached ...―
While at the lake on the weekend I spied a single grey heron further up the beach, where the area is still flooded. Not many people walk up there as you can’t get through and have to turn back. I had my rubber boots on so ventured further ...―
As mentioned in a previous post, it had been a good two months since I visited the park. Largely due to my husband having been in hospital for most of that time. We took advantage of the beautiful winter afternoon last weekend and visited the park. ...―
I love having raw quick things in the fridge for snacks. Want something sweet? It’s ...
The time is upon us to be tan and fit. I love this time of year. The best way to get ...
Crock pot cooking is perfect for anyone on the go go go! Well here is a great dinner that ...
