What to do today? I decided that today I would show you some more images from the Mallee. I went through some images, but decided to show some from the day I spent with Ted and Keith. It was such a great day and I saw lots of things that day that I wouldn’t have seen otherwise. This was a wetland that Keith showed us. It was around the back of a dried up swamp. I loved the colour of the algae growing in it. I know you aren’t supposed to like it, it is not good, but it looks so lovely. It is also so nice to see lots of new trees growing every where. There has obviously been lots of rain and the trees are trying to grow back.
This was taken on the 40 acres that Keith has allowed to go back to nature. These sheep were in paddock next door. I tried to do some different processing with these images, doing similar things to what I did with the photos from Point Lonsdale. I am not sure if it worked. I do like this image of looking through the trees to the sheep. It is interesting having the trees on either side as framing.
For those who have been following my blog for a while this image was taken around the back of the shearing shed in Woomelang. By the time Ted and I got back to Woomelang the sun was setting. We stopped at the shearing shed to take some photos of the sun setting. It wasn’t a spectacular sunset, but there was some colour in it.
I loved the images from this day, and there were a few places I really hope to be able to get back to one day.
I have an interesting day today. I had my first video chat on facebook and then on Google+. I was talking to Carole from Keeping Up With Carol. It was wonderful to have a face to face conversation with someone from so far away. We chatted so I could help her with one of my tutorials. It was really good. Like I said I had never done that before, and it was a good way to communicate and see what she was doing. We discovered on Google+ that she could change the video so I could see her screen and then I could see what she was doing. I suppose that means that I could do the same, show people what I am doing on my screen.
It is cold here today, summer seems shy this year and doesn’t want to appear too soon, I hope that it a good thing. I hope you had a new experience today.
