The difference a couple of days makes

My morning walk on Monday was after overnight rain - a clear crisp morning as you can see from the photo below. But this morning was not for walking - misty and rain showers as you can see from photos at the end of the post.

Monday was the day for capturing some fragments of the beauty of nature on the walk. Some colour for those currently in winter snow.

Today was for capturing the white-out and the webs.

We believe that the next few days are going to be filled with torrential rain and wind - not looking forward to that part of nature.


  1. We keep hearing 500 ml for Brisbane, that's wet!

  2. Very beautiful, delicious flowers! Exquisite pictures! How beautiful !!

  3. What a delightful walk. That last shot is exquisite.

  4. barry, the colors are an exquisite antidote! may the storms be reasonable.

  5. Hi P, L, J & V - thanks for checking out the contrasts on the mountain. P - let us hope that if we get 500ml that it does not have a lot of wind with it. L - the colours and contrast have it. J - the little bell in the mist does have its own language. V - glad it brings a bit of colour to your beautiful white world. All - go well and stay safe. B

  6. Gosh, B, that first photo is amazing, such magnificent rays. All beautiful, good you captured them before the big rain. I hope the block copes well with the possible deluge, fingers crossed for you and all those in the path...

  7. Love seeing the small wonders of your world. Nice to know that flowers are blooming somewhere. Not that I mind the snow, but its a challenge to believe that a transformation such as flowers might happen here someday!
