Anzac Day April 25 2013   1 comment

We got up early this morning at 3.40 to be at Cleveland for the Anzac Day Dawn service – even getting there an hour before the ceremony at 5.30, still only got us a couple of rows backfrom the front, and by the time the ceremony started there were thousands of people there.

The ANZAC spirit grows stronger every year – Lest we forget.

ANZAC Day – 25 April – is probably Australia’s most important national occasion. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.

Some photos I took in the low light of the service.

Brisbane River Walks   Leave a comment

I am lucky to live in walking distance of the Brisbane River and try and go for regular morning walks down there.

This is another couple of random photos, I took on a walk earlier in the year (still going through older photos).

Kookaburras – all washed up   2 comments

A couple of months ago (yes, still going through old photos) we visited friends down the Gold Coast for an afternoon Barbecue.

While we were there some Kookaburras came around for their afternoon feed – it was raining so they were looking pretty washed up.

Chooks – well young roosters   Leave a comment

I visited a friend at Burpengary a little while ago, and spend some relaxing times on “Chicken Watch” as the your birds were let out for thier afternoon walk.

Of course I took the opportunity to grab a couple of photos.

Sunrise over the Brisbane River   Leave a comment

I have been going through some older photos, as with it raining last weekend did not get out much.

These two photos I captured early in January on a morning walk down by the Brisbane River, near Newstead House.

Macro at the Farm   Leave a comment

I went out to my cousins farm today to help with a few odd jobs.

I took the opportunity to get the macro lens out for a play.
