Let’s go surfing

Jude’s 2020 Photo Challenge #43 – Octobers Theme/Technique: Seascapes

This month's final assignment - try capturing the waves: either crashing dramatically against the rocks or a pier, surfers riding the waves, or gentle waves lapping on the seashore. Look out for someone or something that might add interest.  

The foamy waves after a flood

Just checking out the waves…..

…..or maybe the fisher to see if he has caught anything

A huge swell that day

Waves on a stormy day

The White-faced Heron and Pied Oystercatcher were nonplussed about the waves

Waves at sunrise

Creepy images or are they?

Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Creepy

There is a bit of swearing in the selected song FYI

Just a few images from the archives. Creepy enough for you?

A Bottle Tree is after you

A shop window from Vienna

Someone in my shed?

A ghost on the water

A ghost ship sails onward

Who or what has appeared in the feature image?

Also for the Ragtag Daily Prompt Saturday: Strange

It’s written in the sand

Jude’s 2020 Photo Challenge #42: Octobers Theme/Technique – Seascapes

One of my favourite songs to listen to while you scroll

This week's assignment - look for patterns and / or textures along the seashore, this might be in the rocks or shells or seaweed. Try using different depths of field with the same subject then compare them to see which you prefer.

The Sand Images
With water

Made by Sand Crabs up close

Intricate patterns are made

The receding water patterns

The shells and pebbles water patterns

A small Jellyfish and seaweed with bonus bubbles

Windblown Pig-face, buried flower and a stick

Sand textures, dune grass and shadows

Footprints in the sand

I used to cling to rocks now I make an interesting patterns in the sand

The Rock Pool Images

Algae makes a bold colour statement

The folds and patterns of the rocks, the green of the seaweed and subtle sand shapes

The Shells

A close photo of a broken shell accentuated sand and shadow

A contrast and almost moving shell

Using light on the lighter side of the shell leading to a darker side where the shadow resides

Interest is raised by the lines and colours on the shell

The Rocks

Using black and white to accentuate the shadows and highlight the shapes

Looking at subtle colours and textures

Looking at bold colours and textures

Things in black and white

In my garden

This is a multi photo challenge post. Of course it features birds in my garden for Lisa’s Bird Weekly Photo Challenge as well as Tina from the Len-Artists Challenge #120 – What a Treat
Also sneaking in a photo for Basil’s Life Captured Photo Prompt: Transitioning

All the following photos are taken in my garden either walking about or from the verandahs. My home is a treat for seeing birds, insects and animals as well as flowers. Here is a song to listen to as you take a stroll with me in my garden.

This is a King Parrot transitioning from juvenile to adult male

King Parrots can be cheeky. This one is looking through my office door to see what I am doing

Blue-faced Honeyeater and a Bottle Brush flower

The Little Friarbirds like the nectar from the grevillea flowers

Everyone loves a little Eastern Yellow Robin as they hop around the garden

There is always a surprise find in the garden. I think it may be a Lacewing hunting among the leaf litter

The Yellow-faced Honeyeaters chitter chatter in the garden

Dragonflies are always flitting about or just watching on a stick

Of course I could let a post about my garden go without including a Red-necked Wallaby and her Joey

So many butterflies in my garden throughout the year. Scarlet Jezebels arrive in September in time to take advantage of the Pentas flowers

Scarlet Honeyeaters are flashing jewels as they fly about seeking nectar from flowers like this Pink Euodia

The Orchard Swallowtail Butterflies are the largest butterflies in my garden

The Hippeastrums are flowering now and the tiny Stingless Native Bees just love them

Rainbow Lorikeets add so much colour to my graden
