Climbing Castle Rock

The word prompt from Frank at Dutch goes the Photo: Rock

Castle Rock is part of Girraween National Park in Queensland. It had some fabulous granite outcrops and balancing boulders. It is a fairly hard climb but once atop Castle Rock, it is well worth the effort. Here is a few photos from my hike.

Sunrise

The word prompt from Frank at Dutch goes the Photo: Sunrise

Living in the bush I don’t get to see many sunrises or sunsets although I can catch a glimmer of the splendid wonder of a colourful sky through the trees. So when I am out I hope to catch a sunrise.

This is what I see from my verandah

I caught this sunrise at the end of my road when I was heading off to town one morning

But it is much better when I have the chance to get away and watch the sunrise over the sea

Across the Valley

The word prompt from Frank at Dutch goes the Photo: Layer

A while ago whilst driving home I just had to stop and capture the scene across my valley. The layers in the landscape with a bit of mist in the valleys

Another day up the highway from my place. On a rainy day the layers of cloud darken the landscape.

Roses

The word prompt from Frank at Dutch goes the Photo: Rose

You probably know that I like photographing flowers. Last week I went to my daughters place and one morning we went for a walk among the flowers at a wonderful park. The roses were blooming so it was a bit of a stop and shoot rather than a walk. Here are some of the Roses.
Red Roses are always a favourite190130_blog_challenge_rose_red_toowoomba

I have never seen a yellow and orange Rose before
