Ok, a double post today.
One of my mates invited me out this afternoon for a walk along the Kangaroo Point Cliffs with the words ” you never know what you will see there” – well we saw Zombies – exceptional makeup – some really convincing Zombies
A few photos posted here, and the rest I will put up progressively on my facebook page
One of the most beautiful things about a place like this is the nature – and trees from a big part of that.
The was some very impressive tall trees here – and that in it self became a challenge to show off their majestic height.
Below is my attempt to capture this.
Some of the trees had interesting trunks.
I used to grow palm and cycads – and had quite a collection – but doing a lot of travelling and now living in a unit, that is a thing of the past.
I have not lost my interest in these plants – and love finding and seeing them grow in the wild.
So to see the vast number of Cycads (Macrozamia moorei) growing in this National Park was awesome – and most were in seed – big bright orange/red seeds – deserves a second awesome for that.
Ok usually each Blog post only has three photos – but some of these were too nice not to post.
I took a lot of photos of these plants – cutting it down to five was very hard .
How old must this plant be – 100s of years maybe.
Pretty coloured seeds against the green of the plant – beautiful.
Rows of them – thousands of them in this park.
Still on a buzz from being in this awesome place – need to go back and explore more.
A few more photos tonight, this time from part of the Gorge itself – a magic place.
Have so many more photos to go through.
Part 2, to my posting of photos from my weekend in Carnarvon Gorge – a collection of some of the bird photos I took out there .
First up some Emus sighted on the way in, was great to see them in the wild.
A Kookaburra near the camp.
I was standing next to this tree trying to get another photo of the Kookaburra, when this parrot landed only about a metre away.

I was lucky to get out to Carnarvon Gorge last weekend – after a short 9 hour drive got there Friday just after lunch, do the maths backwards – was an early start.
Awesome is the only way to describe it.
Everything from beautiful nature, wildlife, and the Gorge itself is stunning – long bushwalks with so much to see – the 3 nights, 2 full days we were there was definitely not long enough.
First up just some random photos, and then I will get more organised and break it up into different themes for some more posts over the coming weeks.
One of the night time photography projects at Lake Maroon was Fire Twirling (actually burning steel wool)
My good friend Steve – was the twirler – and he has practised and makes it look easy, the third photo is my attempt at “twirling” – he has good circles and shapes – I end up with something resembling an evil pumpkin.
Certainly was fun, and will try again sometime soon hopefully.
