Australia Day Montage

Today is Australia day and I would like to share with you some of my photos that are quintessential Australian. Yes some are off my Valencia Princess blog but there are a whole heap of other ones . The cool looking couple are m parents in 1957 , on Glenelg beach South Australia way before any of us kids were thought of.  Enjoy.

Here are my photos that, for me, embody the word serenity. they range from sunset at Uluru to the beach at Apollo Bay, on a winters day.  Australia has so many places of beauty and serenity it is hard to capture it in a few photos.

The Murray river Mildura, aus.

These pictures are of the Murray River at Lock Island and upstream, of the bridge between the 2 states.   They were taken on my 50th birthday.

Trees are a Testament to time

Trees

Live, die, survive and re birth

Through flood, rain, hail, drought, planted in scorching earth.

Tall, Short, bushy, spindly and stout

Leaves and branches, furl, curl – in and out.

Growing under tutelage from Mother Nature divine

Outliving humans every time.

Augathella Queensland

I stopped in this small but pretty town on the way from Cunnamulla to Blackall. It was 36C ( apx96F). “thella” means by a waterhole; in native aboriginal language.It is the home of the furthest  supermarket set up by pioneers and is home to ‘our famous’ meat ants.
