What a photo challenge!!!! How many photos have Red, Green and Blue colours? I am sure I can find some as I enjoy taking photos of birds and many Australian birds are quite colourful.
But first the jumping castle at the markets certainly has the colours.

Cee’s fun foto challenge Winter – Water
Looking through my photos, my winter photos don’t really reflect winter at all. I guess winter here isn’t the same elsewhere. I don’t get snow, only two or three frosty days and it rarely gets to 0 degrees. So I am just doing water for this challenge.
I like to photograph water especially when there are interesting reflections on the waters surface.
The sunset adds to the wonderful colours.
The ripples and colours make a certain mysterious affect.
And sometimes a ghostly visage makes an appearance
Late afternoon on a cloudy day and a bit of a breeze with water lilies covering the water surface
Every now and then the part of Australia I live in has floods. The Clarence River can be spectacular when the floodwaters come. This is the River gauge showing how high the water rises.
Here are what some buildings look like. This is the tower on top of the boat shed.
At least it is dry in the pub
Here are the steps going up to the pub when the water isn’t covering them. The bottom of the steps are about 1 meter above normal river level.
This what the Clarence River looks like near my place many kilometers upstream
The floodwaters empty into the ocean creating foam that washes onto the beaches and rocks.
It’s Tuesdays Photo Challenge from Frank.

Who is lurking among the CDs?
Looking for the right photos for this weeks Cee’s Black and White photo challenge I thought I would use some of my favourite Australian bird photos and one reptile.
A Parrot – A Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo

The Python who was removed from the chook house before it could eat any of the hens
The after and before photos of a little Scarlet Honeyeater, the smallest of Australias honeyeaters, in an Australian native tree, a Pink Euodia. Scarlet Honeyeaters whizz around my garden like red jewels flashing in the sun.
Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge is one of my favourites to participate in.
Trying out something new with my camera. The blue exercise ball.

I love the colours and shapes that reflections in water makes
It is great that some of the cars of yesterday still exist. Wouldn’t you love to drive this old Ford?
The McKay Petrol engine made in Australia in around 1913 was used on farms for anything you could think of. The engine was running, you can see the wheel spinning in the photo.
Here is the brochure for the engine

Summer has gone in Australia. Summers are hot in my part of the country.
Sometimes it feels like the sky is on fire
Now is time when the evenings are cool to have a fire outside
