Country perspectives..



Had a bit of fun playing with the focus in the two shots above.. I blame it on the country air :) Focusing first on the sunshine yellow acacia bushes along the road then switching the focus to one of the many wind-pumps pumping water in for livestock in the fields. Below the big picture, can you see the small acacia bush there with the windmill in the background.. the big picture can often not be what you expect it to be.. 


A few bits and pieces to finish off this trip to the country. It was good to show my sisters the amazing murals, below centre top, on the silos in Northam painted back in 2015 by Welsh born London based artist Phlegm and part of the Public Silo Trail. Bottom right the water was flowing fast over Noble Falls. The flower spike of the Grass Tree is a weird and wonderful thing! If you embiggen and look at the two shots side by side in the top right hand corner it will give you an idea of how tiny the many varieties of bush orchards are.. if I'm honest they did have to be pointed out to me :) tres jolie they were. Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..

  3. My goodness, those flowers are certainly tiny little things. I love your in and out of focus shots and the "big picture" one. Such a totally different perspective.

  7. Nice to see silos painted in subdued colours for a change. The waterfall looks great and I wish you had posted it larger.

  9. Grace, love your acacia photos with their bright sunshine yellow. Your photos show some of the great things about spring.

  10. Great shots! Pretty as it is, in California acacia always marked the beginning of hay fever season. Love your orchids.

  11. Clever first two shots, I like them, Grace, but, wee.... you make me so homesick with the gravel road!!!

  12. Always difficult what to choose from a lot of photo's but you did a good one. That red country road reminds me immediately to our trip through the outback in 2004. A real adventure with a van from Darwin to Aidelade with the text "Don't worry mate let's the others rush".

  13. My attention is drawn by by that red road, it is so typical Australia and I loved it when we drove there!

  14. I love your perspective shots. I am always thrilled to find the tiny ground orchids. We have had a little bit of rain ... you never know I might find some in flower at our bush block this spring.
