The December theme is TIME. I am sure everyone has found at least one #timesquare, but just in case you are struggling here are some #timesquare ideas;

Timepieces – clocks, watches, sun dials and egg timers
Sayings – Time & tide wait for no man (or woman!), A stitch in time saves nine, Early bird catches the worm, In the nick of time or More haste, less speed
Synonyms – era, moment, season, infinity, interval, lifetime and age
Out of the box – nighttime, downtime, pastime and mealtimes!

Trees

The word prompt from Bren: Trees

You would think that living in the forest I would have lots of photos of trees. I have some but nothing as wonderful as Brens trees.

The Trees

The word prompt from Kate: Composition

The composition of a photo can be the thing that makes a good photo. Sometimes it can be the use of space in a photo that gives impact. I like this photo of a tree as it gives some space to the sky.

Or can dominate a photo adding texture and a sense of being alone

Up in the Tree

The word prompt from the Lens-Artist Photo Challenge: Look up

Out for a walk I saw a sudden bright flash in the sky. Trying to find whatever it was, I Looked up high into the grand Ironbark tree at the entrance to my place. There do you see the little bird?

It is a Rainbow Bee-eater taking in the sights from high among the leaves.

The photos don’t show what a lovely little bird the Rainbow Bee-eater is so I put a better photo in the header

Trees in black and white

Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Trees

I had a bit of a hard time deciding on trees for Cees photo challenge. I have just found a few that may be of interest.

This is one of the tallest Ironbark Trees in my street. I haven’t measured the tree but estimate it to be around 30meters tall. The front of my place has some big Ironbark trees like this one which was one of the attractions when I bought Durranbah.

Along the road a towards the river is some forest gums. When they shed their bark, the timber underneath is a bright orange colour. They really stand out in the forest.180921_blog challenge_blackandwhite_trees_forest gums_orange

 

Here is a close up of one of the trees.180921_blog challenge_blackandwhite_trees_forest gums_orange_close

This is looking down towards the back of my place from the house

In the gullies that run through my place are many Grass Trees. The one in front is about 100 years old. The one at the back is a youngster which was probably a small bunch on the ground when I bought Durranbah around 30 years ago.

Durranbah is the name I gave this place. It means small jumping ants in Aboriginal language.
