Seven Days of Nature Challenge – Day 7

Finally at the end of the week, Seven Days of Photography Challenge where I was nominated by Desley and Robin. Today I will share an image from my Bucket List.

I am sure many people have taken many images of The Lonely Tree at Lake Wanaka in Southern New Zealand. When I was there there were a few places that were a must; this was one and the most elusive to find. Once we did locate it, it was obvious!

Perhaps not the worlds greatest shot (I was barely off auto when I took this), but it is mine ๐Ÿ™‚ . I am taking a leave out of our friend Marilyn and I am not going to nominate anyone else………please if you love nature and landscape photography, consider yourself invited!

Seven Days of Nature Challenge – Day 6

Day 6 of the Seven Days of Nature challenge I was nominated by Desley and Robin. I do love a good challenge, but sometimes finding someone to nominate (that didn’t ask for it) is a challenge in itself. I am happy to assign myself challenges but passing the baton can be difficult. There are so many great blogs out there I have to not nominate A lot……..not because I don’t enjoy them – I do, enormously, some people don’t like awards or nomination so I have tried (where possible, apologies if I failed) TO NOT NOMINATE ANY OF THEM.

So here is my Day 6 post.Both images shot same morning at the Duck Pond, locally about 5 – 10 minutes apart. I took these about a year ago, I don’t think I have a sunrise as good since ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Seven Days of Nature Challenge – Day 5

This is another really old photo……..pre DSLR days and I was tempted to take it into Photoshop and play around with it, and I am sure I could make it so much better; but I kind of like the simplicity of it………it reminds me of just how far I have come. So this is my post for Day 5 of the Seven Days of Nature Challenge, nominated by Desley and Robin.

Seven Days of Nature Challenge – Day 4

Day 4 of the Seven Day’s of Nature Challenge, nominated by Desley and Robin. I found this little guy in my front yard; a magpie, he had some friends with him but they were much shier than him. This one was quite inquisitive and was telling me off as out bird bath had no water. He even watched me as I grabbed the hose and filled it up……….and posed while I took his photo. Be warned these guys are quite nasty if protecting their nest.

Seven Days of Nature Challenge – Day 3

For todays Nature Challenge (I was nominated by Desley and Robin)I went on the hunt through my archives and found this little gem, it’s actually from when I first got my camera in 2014, taken at Grant’s Park in the Dandenong Ranges. We had gone up there to A/ play with my new camera and B/ to escape the summer heat…..it’s always lovely and cool up there.
