A reflection of twigs on the dam at sunrise.
I took this using a slow shutter speed to catch the beautiful movement of the grass looking up towards the sky.

I was brought up on the coast in South Wales, UK and I do miss the sea, so visiting Anglesea was both strangely familiar and yet different. Now living in mountain ranges in the southern hemisphere meant I ended up taking a lot of images that day – there was so much to see (and I didn’t have a macro lens when I lived in the UK)!! There will be more to come…
Early morning with a haze

Today we went to Anglesea which is on the Great Ocean Road, in Victoria, Australia. Click on the link to read its amazing history. The waves were big and the wind was up, dramatic scenes and white horses galore!
Last weekend we went to Melbourne Zoo. As regular readers will know, I visit the zoo as often as possible. These tigers are creatures I always make sure that I go to see – I think they are beautiful animals. Sadly, along with many other species, they are critically endangered. According to the WWF, it is estimated that there are less than 400 individuals left in the wild due to deforestation and poaching, which is why, in my opinion, organisations such as Zoos Victoria are so important with their captive breeding programmes. The zoo had four cubs born in February 2010 which can all still be enjoyed there today. Click on each image for a full view.
Lunch! Taken through very dirty, scratched glass (at child eye level!) under his lookout point.
This is one of the trellis systems at work. It is a large block which is nearly 4 Ha in area. I have often seen this image in my mind, and after trying it with a wide-angle lens (which didn’t work) I finally took this at 300 mm which not only has compressed it, but also ‘fits’ the image I had.
