  3. Just havent been able to get out today. This is of a very loud and demanding rainbow lorikeet, shouting from the top branches of the 60ft+ eucalypt across the road from my place.

    I know they're cute, but this one has been laying waste to our flower borders. His time had come, I'm afraid.

    Yesterday's drizzle has been replaced with pouring rain. Whilst the forecast suggests it will clear before sunset I've decided on this view from the end of my cottage (meaning I'm in the dry) showing the Dutch barn almost alongside it. Look closely at the ends of the guttering and you should discern some thin silver streaks, that's the water flowing out of the ends of the guttering due to the lack of any down pipes. It also shows as silver streaks between the two pillars on the right hand side of the barn as it's blown away by the wind. The white marks on the floor are signs left by roosting Jackdaws that shelter there overnight. Sadly the wood pile is not mine.

    P.S. That was a good shout, the weather men have been slowly putting back any clearance as the day progressed, now it's not due until after sun down.

    Dull start with 50 mph plus winds and pouring rain when the wind dropped so didn't go far today. Took this from my yard when there was a break in the almost never ending grey cloud.

    Our younger son graduated from college last spring with a degree in Music and in Theatre. I enjoy the "goodies" I find around his room, empty now as he lives and works about 2 hours away with his girlfriend. Fortunately they visit fairly often.

    The woods around my house are full of botanical treasures. Just a few yards away from the Shagbark Hickory in yesterday’s post, this Pignut Hickory, Carya glabra, towers approximately 100 feet over the house. In Autumn, its brilliant golden foliage is like a beacon over the neighborhood.

    Shannon and Casey are coworkers who represent some of the best of the younger generation at our firm. Here I caught an image of them chatting up some ideas for later this year.

    I have decided to turn my chronic lack of time into a virtue. I do feel that SiJ is quite intimate, almost confessional in the way it encourages us to peek into each other's lives. With that in mind, therefore I present today's image.

    2018_0124_22290300-01. On the left, a blackthorn walking stick crafted by my great-grandfather when he was a young man. I first remember it being used by my grandfather. He died aged 85 in 1971. It is still strong and sturdy. On the right is a stick I bought from a country fair a couple of years ago. I can't see the younger stick lasting more than 130 years...

    Day Twenty Four - the wrong plan

    The first day there is half decent weather outside (sun shining, looking glorious for a brief time) I find myself stuck indoors in a meeting that I (why, why, why?) scheduled over lunch time when I could have been outdoors with my camera in my hands and a smile on my face finding beautiful images wherever I looked. Of course, the weather turned back to its familiar seasonal poop for my commute home with a land slip and flooding thrown in for some extra, uninvited adventure!

    As for today’s shot - last year I joined in the Art of Photography YouTube channel photo assignments - The Photo Assignment | The Art of Photography. The first assignment got me shooting leaves!

    Penske on the Hardball. I love the clouds as the front that dumped snow in Northern NE and practically drowned us was on it's way out this morning.

    Several “small” bushfires sparked by lightning burning around town at the moment.

    Small is a relative term when used in a region spanning 1.3 million square kilometres...
