Then followed that beautiful season… Summer….

Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape

Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.

Stormy Weather



Living in Queensland means that there are many summer storms. We had a few rather interesting storms in late November this year.

These two photographs were taken on separate days and thankfully there wasn’t any hail or damage.

The daunting cloud formations show that we could be in for an exciting summer:)

Valley Views


Views from the mountain down the valley.

You can also see some of the Glass House Mountains.

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:)

Driving through Australia


New South Wales, Australia

Travelling through Australia is always enjoyable. The landscape changes quickly and the scenes are glorious. This photograph is taken travelling through Gibraltar National Park. The district gum trees, rainforest ferns and shrubs are a brilliant display of the Australian Landscape.

It’s still Raining


So Long Summer!


So long Summer….You were awesome.

Autumn is Arriving


Autumn is arriving. I have loved summer although we have again had some horrific weather in Queensland. It would be lovely to have a quiet and simple Autumn. Days like the one on this photograph would be very welcome.

Wonder. It is the feeling that I can describe as I take photographs. Keep the wonder in your heart and you will never be disappointed.

This is Australia


This is Australia
This is amazing.
This is Home.



Everyone’s travels their own road, path or journey. We cannot travel someone else’s road, as much as we sometimes would like too. This wild rob us and those people of our own opportunities and life lessons. No matter how difficult the road is for you or how easy it looks for someone else, we must be content to walk on our journey. Only we can see the beauty for which our lives have been created.

A Piece of Nature


Here is a little slice of nature.

Daisies in the Dew


I went for an early morning walk and saw fields of daisies. It was a glorious morning and the light, delightful. It was a very enjoyable ‘photo taking’ walk.

Summer Heat Wave

16As you may know I live in Queensland, Australia. Right now we are experienceing a heat wave. It is one of the hottest summers I have ever experienced. There is not much to do but try to stay cool and wait for the weather to change. Another negative to having heat waves is bushfires. There are hundreds of bushfires currently burning all over Australia. Most fires are well away from homes but unfortunately many homes were destroyed in Tasmania. My thoughts and prayers are with those families and communiities. I hope all Australians are staying cool and staying safe.

Brisbane City


Here is a snapshot of what Brisbane is like on a weekday. It is a hive of business, people running to catch buses, ferries and trains. I love Brisbane in the summer it is so lovely to go for an early morning walk. However, it does become rather hot and humid. The temperature yesterday was 33 degrees Celsius! Looks like it is going to another long, hot summer:)



I went wandering through my city today. It was a bright and hot summers day. These days are best for wandering whoever ever my eyes and camera lead me.

Enjoy your summer days!

Follow Me


Sugar train tracks in this picture are quite common in the town of Bundaberg.
Bundaberg is a small town 4 hours north of Brisbane, Queensland.
This photograph is taken in the Botanical Gardens, highlighting some of the beautiful landscape.
Whenever I see train tracks I always wonder where they go. It is a simple mystery. It is as if the tracks beg a wanderer to follow them.

Summer has Arrived


Photograph taken at Kelly’s beach, Bundaberg, Queensland. It is exciting that summer has well and truly come!
