It's definitely Spring

All of the flowers are starting to bloom and I just loved the vibrancy of these poppies that were growing in a garden in Canberra.  I'm also getting excited for the Carnival of Flowers in Toowoomba next weekend.

Explosion of Purple

My final post for the evening is of some more flowers taken at Toowoomba 2 weeks ago.  These beautiful daisies made a stunning show in one of the private gardens that was open for viewing.

I Love Spring
I think this vibrant yellow tulip really signifies Spring to me.  I was fortunate to get up to Toowoomba (Qld, Aust) to see the marvellous gardens during Carnival of Flowers.

Rainbow Lorikeet....again

For #birdpoker +Bird Poker hosted by +Phil Armishaw  tonight's theme is Common Birds in your Area 
I have chosen an older shot of a Rainbow Lorikeet.  Both here in Caboolture & whilst I was living in Townsville, these birds are always about in great numbers, particularly in all the native flowering trees & shrubs.  It's almost at the point now where I rarely photograph them anymore as they are so plentiful!  They wake me every morning squabbling in the Bottlebrush tree outside my window!  Mind you I still find their antics hilarious to watch & they really are the 'clowns' of the local birdlife!

The Burghers of Calais -Bronzes by Auguste Rodin

I thought that I'd end my final Day 5 of the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge   with a little bit of 'culture'.  These amazing Bronzes are to be found in the Sculpture Garden at the National Gallery of Australia. They are from an edition of 12 that have been released by Musée Rodin, Paris  Many thanks to +Kim Sinclair for inviting me to participate in this challenge

Jacaranda

The Jacaranda trees are in full bloom across Brisbane.  It's enough to prompt fear in the heart of Uni Students all over town because the blooming of these beautiful trees always heralds that the end of year exams are just around the corner!

Story Bridge

It's already Day 4 of the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge
Thanks for nominating me +Kim Sinclair It's really been fun so far!
I took this photo a couple of weeks back and it really did nothing for me as a colour shot.  I found that the B&W processing gave it a more interesting feel - probably a solution I wouldn't have thought of prior to this challenge!  Once again, if you enjoy the idea of the challenge - feel free to join us.

This is another shot from my Camera Club outing yesterday and my first post to +Reptile Monday  curated by  +Will Pirnasch +Nicole Best #ReptileMonday

This Water Dragon was very obliging and sat still for a couple of minutes whilst I took photos from several angles, before slipping away silently into the reeds at the waters edge.

This old and spent Banksia bloom made a perfect candidate for my Day 3 of the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge .

I was nominated for the challenge by +Kim Sinclair and although I am supposed to nominate one more person each day, I find that most of my contacts and G+ friends are already on board with the challenge.  So I decided that today, if you read my post & feel like you would like to participate, consider yourself nominated :-) and happy posting!

Brisbane's Story Bridge At Night

I took this shot as we took a leisurely cruise home along the river after Riverfire a couple of weeks back.  It was quite challenging because the purple/pink lighting on the bridge overwhelmed everything else.  The shot was also made more complex as it had to be taken 'handheld' on a moving boat!
I thought this would be a good one for +SaturdayNightLight  curated by  +Dirk Heindoerfer #SaturdayNightLight as it was even captured on a Saturday!

I was nominated to take on the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge   by +Kim Sinclair   I don't post a lot of B&W photography so this is definitely challenging me to extend my perceptions about composition & potential subjects.  This one is of a newly opened Geranium on my back Patio

I'd like to nominate +Rosario Díaz   to post a b&w photo for 5 days and to nominate one person a day to join in.

Curiosity

Today's post for #BirdPoker +Bird Poker Looking Down curated by +Phil Armishaw is of a very curious Rainbow Lorikeet who was living in a tree in a very busy Sports Park near my old home in Townsville.  He used to sit at the entrance to his nest and watch the local boys playing football, on a regular basis.

Happy Pansies

I thought I'd celebrate the end of what has been a rather challenging week with some of my favourite 'happy' flowers tonight.
My PC decided to lock me out on Monday, so several arduous hours of refreshing the entire system, followed by large parts of the rest of the week trying to reload all of my backed up data and syncing with assorted mobile devices, has left me somewhat drained.  However, it's Friday night and all is working again so I'm hoping for a relaxing weekend.

After Riverfire
This time last week I was getting very excited about going in to Brisbane (Qld. Australia) to see the Riverfire fireworks display from the vantage point of a large Catamaran.  This was my first attempt at shooting fireworks in hand held, full manual mode & was also complicated by the movement of the boat.  All in all I got some reaonable shots ( some were pretty horrible too - they would almost pass for light writing)
I used my trusty old Canon 600D with the settings:  ISO100, Stop at F8  & 1 sec exposure time.  Any longer & the exposures were affected by the movement of either myself ot the boat.  I also set manual focus at infinity.
Still Learning!

I used my trusty old Canon 600D with the settings:  ISO100, Stop at F8  & 1 sec exposure time.  Any longer & the exposures were affected by the movement of either myself ot the boat.  I also set manual focus at infinity.
Still Learning!

One Happy Duck
This male Mallard Duck looks for all the world like he is smiling.  I watched him for some time and he seemed to be quite content paddling along the river.

Spring

A wonderful and award winning private garden that was open for public viewing at the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers.  This was just one of many beautiful areas within the garden.  It is a festival well worth visiting & in my opinion it certainly rivals Floriade in the ACT

I spotted a family of these beautiful birds in a Casuarina tree at the back of my parents place, when visiting a couple of weeks back.  I stood and watched them play and feed for quite a long time. They didn't seem to worry about my presence at all.

All of the flowers are starting to bloom and I just loved the vibrancy of these poppies that were growing in a garden in Canberra.  I'm also getting excited for the Carnival of Flowers in Toowoomba next weekend.

 Some of the birdlife ( and one tortoise) living along the reaches of the Caboolture River behind my house.  The weather has been perfect for afternoon strolls and exploration along the river banks and I've really been enjoying the opportunity to get out and about.
