Double dipping at Raspberry Lookout

Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Weather

Today I went for a drive up the Gibraltar Range as there are wild flowers growing at the moment. Of course a drive into the mountains wouldn’t be the same without a stop off at my favourite place, Raspberry Lookout.

This is what you can usually see when you stop at Raspberry Lookout

Today it was like this

I did mention wildflowers didn’t I? There were daisies and other flowers just on the roadside.

As well as Christmas Bells, the ones I had come to see.

These are for Cee’s FOTD

I don’t know if this satisfies Marsha’s and Cee’s PPAC I found it in the very old tree in a notch they cut out to insert planks to get higher when felling a tree many many years ago

I bet you wondered where all this was going didn’t you? Well this is all part of the Lens-Artists Challenge #181: Double Dipping

But did you notice that some of the photos were square so get prepared for Becky’s Square Photo Challenge February: Odd

A Winters Day…..in a deep and dark

The Weekly Prompts Weekend Colour Challenge: Winters Day

A Winters day and this song just started in my head

Onto having a look at my Winters Day

So out of bed the suns coming up

There’s a bit of fog in the gullies

But it’s a nice day at the beach

The birds are heading off to roost

The suns setting…..c’mon we better be going then

All the photos were taken in Winter in the Northern Rivers Region of New South Wales Australia – where I live.

Grey skies

Life in Colour November: Black/Grey

This one is right above my house

On the way home when every thing changed with a yellow hue

Storms at sea can look dramatic

The Moon shining through the clouds one morning

They are all naturally grey

Life in Colour November: Black/grey

Jude has asked “What Greys in nature do you have to share?” I think you may have sent a loaded question Jude
