Nearly a week's worth of Photos.
I am home alone tonight, so I will endeavour to
load heaps of photos. Tiff is at a friends place, and
Mark has taken Sheri and her friends camping
for the night. I personally think they are
going to freeze, but it is something they
have wanted to do for ages.
I can't remember what number I am up to,
or the order these photos should be loaded, so
I am just doing a bulk post, I will
work out the rest later.
The snow on the way up on the Monday,
we were supposed to have chains but
after consulting a policeman and a
service station owner we decided
to make a run for it and hope for the best.
It was a little worse than I expected but
not overly bad.
A steam engine at Yarrongabilly.
The sun on Blowering Dam, way more water in
there than the last time I was up that way.
We were down the street in Tumut on Tuesday
when we noticed this amazing rainbow, at the same
time I got a message on my phone 'Quick Rainbow'.
It was so bright, and full I could not fit it all
into one photo, so I have joined two pics together.
I have not really done it justice, I could not get
a photo that shows how bright it was.
If you look closely you can see all the colours
and then some extra ones underneath.
Family day in the park, with some macro
photography, these daffodil/jonquils are
a bit confused I don't think they should
be out in flower at this time of the year.
I will load family pics later.
I have called this a watsit, simply because
I really don't know what it is.
I think a seed pod off a pine tree looking thing.
The setting sun from outside Mum's place one afternoon.
The setting sun taken from the road below
Mrs Barons place, not sure of the name of the road.
Batlow taken from the forestry rd near
Skeins place. I could not quite tell where
Mum's house is, I took the photo from
A tractor in a paddock coming down the hill
from the cemetery. Bet you never knew it was there
Batlow peoples, did you.
Leaves on the train tracks at Tumut.
A very random tree in a paddock between
Batlow and Tumut. It was a bit hard to take
a pic of this, I was parked on a corner with log
trucks zooming past every couple of mins.
Trees in the snow on the way home again.
I skipped the chains again, and prayed all the
way that I would not get pulled up, probably a little
bit more snow than on the way up, but still not
I have wanted to stop to take a photo of this
birds nest every time I have driven past it.
Pity it was so far off the road and in someones paddock.
I nearly froze my buns off getting the pic.
The wind must have been gale force and
blowing straight off the snow.
Same nest taken without the zoom.
Then would you believe I found another nest,
this one was not far out of Cooma, the other
one was at Seven Gates.
Ok, if you are still with me thanks for sticking around.
I will now try to work out where I am up to.
I will be back with another weeks photos and a
couple of Lo's later.
