  Although 'a picture paints a thousand words', I have added a couple... so click the images to read them ... or not  

The Cottage
The Cottage

If at first you don't succeed... change the plan not the goal.

Life, still
Life, still

Dead tree still has so much life

Life, still
Life, still

Just as alive in colour

Notre Dame
Notre Dame

Gloriously gothic. Had a word with the ghost who cleared the tourists for my photo.

Lake Daylesford, Autumn
Lake Daylesford, Autumn

Imagine the heady days when folks would frequent the Lake with parasols, champagne and tea sandwiches to take in the sun and swim in the mirror lake.

Tuscan Sunset
Tuscan Sunset

A Tuscan sunset is everything they say it is. Book that flight. Organise that pet sitter. Go experience this beauty.

Mornington Peninsula
Mornington Peninsula

Calm seas are the perfect floor for dancing light

Tuscany
Tuscany

Ah... Tuscan sunlight. A colour all of its own. Magical.

Paris
Paris

Emerging from the Metro, you look up and catch sight of this iconic monument.

Mornington Peninsula
Mornington Peninsula

In black and white it evokes a wintry feeling... the summer haze appears as mist...

Tuscan Sunset

It really was this colour. Mesmerising. Nature's entertainment.

Black and white to highlight the cloud depth

High reflection at Lake Daylesford

Luna Park

It's closed. Still creepy.

Street Lights

Late night driving ... rain ... lights ...

Noisy Neighbours
Noisy Neighbours

They may look pretty but they burst eardrums

Life
Life

Tree-veins reach out against the backdrop of a clear sky. Alive and full of ancient mysteries.

French Feet
French Feet

Canine? Gargoyle? Frenchman?

Pont Neuf
Pont Neuf

Neuf said.

Beach
Beach

Simultaneously calm and savage

Swans on Holiday
Swans on Holiday

The bay is calm and these swans appear at home on the lake-like water. Beautiful and graceful they glide effortlessly ... like lovers on a romantic beach escape. A surreal sight if not slightly voyeuristic if we anthropomorphise them.

Lake Daylesford, late Autumn
Lake Daylesford, late Autumn

The water is a mirror. Narcissus would definitely have drowned here.

Sky Mirror
Sky Mirror

This courtyard is from the 12th Century and its symmetry was gloriously calming. Fortunately the clear blue skies captured the illusion of a mirror.

Dog in Motion
Dog in Motion

She's a sweet nightmare

Parakeet, hidden
Parakeet, hidden

Winter allows the trees to flaunt their intricate branches. Against grey skies and fog, a lone parakeet appears to huddle.

Noir et Blanc
Noir et Blanc

The moon was visible in the middle of the day, and it had an eerie quality.

Make a Wish
Make a Wish

These beauties never fail to let my imagination sail into the dreamy skies of clouds and lucid dreaming of endless possibilities...

Red Hill
Red Hill

The uniformity of wineries

Mornington Peninsula
Mornington Peninsula

Frazetta-esque Skies. Optimistic and ominous all at once, conjuring innumerable adventures for this little boat ...

French Windows
French Windows
Paris
Paris

Such an achingly beautiful city; the architecture is stunning. Bring extra film rolls, USB sticks, SD cards, whatever you use; bring double. Everywhere you look is a photo opportunity. Look down streets and alleys where everyday Parisian's live to catch a slightly incongruous glimpse of ET...

Cloud Watching

Exercise in Texture

Country

Quick snap from moving vehicle

Sydney
Sydney

The bridge. In black and white. Nothing fancy. Then again, neither is Sydney.

Ubiquitous Beach Boxes

Model: common seagull Would definitely work with him again

Oh, Mother Nature, where is your modesty? That cloud pattern ... that halo ...
