This months photo challenge in square format from Becky is Time
This month I will put a song with the photo.
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!
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 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
What would you have done differently?
The word prompt from the Lens-Artists Weekly Photo Challenge #19: Magical Light
Bren at RyanPhotography has a Mid-Week Monochrome photo challenge
I had a number of images but couldn’t find the right balance or subject. The paddock tree one foggy morning turned out to be my favourite
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
The Daily Word Prompt: Foliage
A bit of experimenting with a photo of some foliage. Do you think it works?
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.
Here is a close up of one of the trees.
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.
