dramatic skies

here in oz it’s still winter, but a hint of spring is in the air

these photos were taken within about 15 minutes at around 4 pm one afternoon this week

in this one, i tried to capture the quality of light filtering through the branches of a large gum tree

the sky was amazing, with the sunlight and the clouds interracting and changing all the time

unique flora

just to show you what ‘the bush’ is like around st marys – here’s a photo of some wildflowers in the bush section of our block of land near mt elephant –

there are also a lot of banksia trees growing there, which look quite strange to anyone used to the vegetation in the northern hemisphere (myself included) –

next time i go out there i’ll take some more photos, as spring is just around the corner

who knows what will be growing there next …

roses tier

one day we decided to drive over roses tier (behind ben lomond) to get to st marys from launceston

i tried to capture this first-time experience with my mobile phone from a moving car

try to imagine being on the trip yourself while watching this
