Welcome Flopsy! Great photo.

Beautiful flowers PDAZ and I love the seals Clara!

Yesterday we got slammed by a dust storm. Started getting a little dusty by lunch time and then this happened at about 6pm which was a good couple hours before sunset (so the colour isn't from a setting sun). In there somewhere is a shearing shed. Huge cleanup today - my son's teacher is coming for a homevisit today too .. yikes, hopfully I can get the main bits cleaned up before she gets here!

I love to see all your photos of the different seasons and the transitions. We have only two seasons - hot and wet.

A landscape typical of our area at this time of year (not much summer fern). I hope it stays like this. There seems to be a policy of returning everything to the heathland it once was. It makes a dreadful mess of the land and generally spoils the countryside in my opinion.

I turned away from the duck-feeding duck hunters of Les Landes and saw the rotted remains of an old jetty. At least, I think it had been a jetty but it was a bit hard to tell!



Thanks for the welcomes!

Delightful image, and a pefect reflection in the still water!
This is part of the old maltings in the nearby small town of Ware. All the buildings are now converted into homes, bars, restaurants, etc.

Ooh, that looks like one of our dust storms, Copago. Flopsy, another beautiful image! Picqero, your photo looks like it could be a post card.

I'm not one who normally drinks anything other than a pint of beer or a glass of wine when it comes to alcohol, but after a day at the beach, this looked refreshing.

Another random straight road I spotted in Elstree. This is a dismal estate (this was the best of the roads) and are all named after composers. The fashion of seeming to name the worst roads after the best things or people has not managed to make the roads any better!

Here's a pic of the original longdrop loos for the shearer's huts. A new ablution block was built in the 80s so this has stood lonely since then. Wood heap in the background.

Clouds a few weeks ago. They looked so white and fluffy I had to take some picutes of them.

The longdrop loos made me laugh - I have a book of dunny photos and even a pottery model of one, there's just something so reminiscent of Australia about them, although when I was actually in Australia I never got to use one. Thankfully. LOL.

Yesterday water. Today grass. And water.

This is the view if I look behind me now. I took it just to make sure the new memory card was working before using it.

Great photos everyone!

I liked the dark clouds in yesterday's sunset. A bit grainy, so had to reduce the size. Can't wait till I get my new camera - so many makes to choose from. I'll get there soon....

The seals are really cute, Clarasue.

This old building now houses the HSBC bank.

Such beautiful buildings in Mumbai, Zorba, thanks for sharing them with us.

Just for comparisons sake here is the same view as what was in that dust storm photo. Told you there was a shed there

Great to see the Hindustan car as well Zorba, they imported some here as well so have seen them in person. Far nicer than what they make nowadays.

Here is a path round the corner from me

Typical scene on the Lea Navigation canal, about 5 minutes walk from our house. Maybe I should have entered this one for this week's theme!
