King of the Castle

10 Feb

Todays photo is a shot of what is no longer there.  My ‘pet’ wallabies were visiting tonight, so I quietly snuck out with camera in hand…… unfortunately I was not quiet enough, and they bounded off into the long grass.

Never mind, there was a bird sitting on the very top of a very tall pine tree up the top of the back yard.  Swung camera, focused and just as I pressed the shutter off he flew.  While I waited and waited and waited, neither the wallabies or the bird returned 😦

But if you zoom in, I rather like the tip of the tree.

Sky on Fire

9 Feb

Tonights sky was amazing.  I was distracted and only caught it at the last gasp.

Am I There Yet?

8 Feb

DS needed some new work attire. He went shopping and managed to fend rather well for himself but I feel he needs some Mothers love.

Next time I feel that urge I will remember he is over 6 feet tall and has very long arms.

New Life

7 Feb

This is an Orchid that my Baby Bear bought for me one Mothers day.  While I have managed to keep it alive, and it has even sent out air roots, it has not yet flowered again.  I thought I was finally going to see some new pretty flowers, but it is sending out a new branch of leaves.

Sunset Timelapse

6 Feb

The colours tonight were not amazing, and I still managed to get a couple of unfocused frames  but my time-lapse sunset is a work in progress

A day later

5 Feb

It’s interesting just how much difference a day can make.  Same view as yesterday, but a completely different light show.  I did try to grab a time lapse, but in my haste I put the focus point on the sky and the camera didn’t always focus.  Another step on the learning curve.

In the moment

4 Feb

Tonights sunset had some nice colour, so I headed out for a photo.  I never seem to tire from taking sunset photos.©2017 Cathy Craig

While I was out on the balcony, one of our cats ‘Buttons’ came to investigate.  Of course the moment I started focussing the camera on her, she came towards me.  I feel lucky to have been quick enough to compose this one.
