Belmont Lakefront

Belmont Lakefront

Blue sky, blue waters
A warm breeze
Caressing my face:
I feel at peace

This photo is from a couple of days ago. I’d gone for a quick walk along the Belmont lakefront to stretch my legs and I really liked this scene when I came across it… the light was so lovely and the water such a beautiful blue that I knew I had to take a quick shot.

Ironically we had very heavy rain for the next couple of days, so much so that some parts of Newcastle and Lake Macquarie were flooded. I guess it shows just how quickly Mother Nature can change.

Pelican on the Lake

Walking by the lake
I stop to watch
A pelican
As the sun sets

I spent a couple of hours in Valentine this afternoon, walking around the wharf and lakefront with my photography group. It was fun and good exercise to boot.

I haven’t gone through all the photos yet but I liked this one of the pelican. I really love the silhouette and the beautiful golden light. I thought I’d stuffed the shot up at the time as I hadn’t checked my settings but it came out pretty well in the end.

And yes, if you’re wondering, I named the pelican Mr Percival. Of course. 😀

The Bumblebee

Bumblebee in Hobbiton

Oh to be
Like a small bumblebee;
How different
The world must seem

I took this while we were in Hobbiton. It was a beautiful day and with all of the flowers blossoming there were lots of bumblebees buzzing around and I managed to snap this just as this bee paused and looked up.

It was mostly luck and timing but I’m happy with how it came out. I didn’t get stung either which was nice too. 😉
