moments of awe


‘Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe that change forever how we experience life and the world.’

Mt Mee, Queensland

Summer break has finally started so I thought I would get back into photography.

I went for a drive into the mountains and national park. The hills always seem so green and luscious.

There is something about the cool mountain air that always leaves on refreshed.

Hope you are having a great week:)

A Rose


We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.

Rose Garden


The rose gardens at New Farm Park at pleasant to wander through. The fragrances of all the flowers are delightful. The gentle autumn breeze signals that winter is not too far away.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

In the Park


A beautiful day yesterday in New Farm Park. The weather was just glorious.

Southbank Parklands


The beautiful blossoms of bougainvillea covering the arbour at Southbank Parklands. The Arbour creates a colourful canopy to walk under and spans for a kilometre through cafes, shops and parks of Southbank. The designer created the arbour several years ago (most people thought the design was terrible) years later the Brisbane people saw the result of someone’s dream. It took several years for the vine to grow to its present beauty and it was certainly worth the wait.



Simply, Love….
