A rose for all those involved in the Oklahoma tornadoes.
My thoughts go out to everyone that has been affected by this latest tragedy.

Reaching for the sun

Just a little photo to cheer people up after the last few days. I was really pleased at how this photo turned out and I did not have to do a lot to improve this photo. The daisy seems to just pop out on the page. Some days I can get great photos and other days I delete a lot, but I am improving.
I hope you all have a great day.

This is the companion to my other photo. I don’t have a lot of flowers left in my garden as we are in Autumn here, but the geraniums are always good for photos.
Happy snapping

Hanging in there

My photo of the day. Yesterday I went out in between showers and managed to get a few photos and here is the best one. The colours are just beautiful and I couldn’t believe I managed to capture this perfect rain drop.
I hope you all have a great day.

Autumn colours

Autumn is definitely making it’s presence felt here and the colours are just stunning. The other day I went out early before breakfast with my camera to try and get some good shots of the Hutt River in the early morning. But I did not time it too well as I didn’t take into account the end of daylight saving. So I walked down to the park and took some great photos of flowers and leaves – I will try and post some at a later date. The night before it had rained quite heavily so I had lots of nice juicy raindrops on the flowers.
I love the colours in this photo and the way the green leaf with the rain drops is sharp in the middle of the mix of Autumn colours.
I think this reminds us that there is beauty in all aspects of nature.  I will try and remember that when we are in the middle of a southerly storm!
I hope you all have a good day.
