Winter sunset

A beautiful end of a mid winter day. As I was packing up to go home after work this was happening outside.

Celtic celebration

The Glen Innes Celtic Festival is held the first weekend in May each year. I was lucky enough to experience one day of it this year through a photojournalist course I took part in.

To my surprise it wasn’t all about bagpipes and kilts. An Armidale re-enactment group, The New England Medieval Arts Society (NEMAS), were also a big part of the celebration including camping at the towns Standing Stones site.

Other than hearing a mass pipe band play in Glen Innes’ main street, seeing, talking to and being allowed to take photos of the members of NEMAS would be the highlight of my day at the festival.

Bent but not broken 

Another shot from my weekend photography binge session in the fog.

These elms line a beautiful avenue here in town. The avenue, King George Ave, actually featured in the Angelina Jolie movie Unbroken as the main character was seen running down it as a young man. Unfortunately this elm is a bit broken but it is still a beautiful sight on the avenue in the fog.

These elm trees are under threat of being removed to allow an alternative access to the CBD. This one was struck by lightning recently which doesn't help its cause.

Why?

If every picture tells a story what is the one behind this?

I'm sure there is a story behind these. The question is do we want to know what it is?

More of  the fog

It almost looked like a scene from an old horror movie - with out the horror

More of my river bank walk last Saturday. I love this tree

Pelican in the mist

My early Saturday morning was rewarded with a lot of lovely photos of a heavy fog that engulfed the town.

This is a model with attitude I ran into on my walk along the river flats.

I found a wonderful model hiding in the fog. I love this over the sholder glare.

Foggy morning

I have had this this tree in my photography radar for months. Believe it or not it is only a five minute drive from the CBD.

A combination of the need to get up early on a Saturday and the very thick fog we experienced this morning made it worth the wait. I even got the added bonus of a stray pelican to complete the picture.

A foggy takeoff.

A last glimpse of autum

Autum is such a beautiful time of year. Shame it had to end.

Autum colours never fail to inspire a walk with my camera

Bird Attitude

I love Rosella’s. They are beautful, bright coloured and, at times, they really carry on a treat when other birds enter their airspace. This little guy wasn’t too happy with me taking photos of him. Lucky their attitude only go as far as dirty looks.
