Skywatching, Moonshadow

Took these shots of the moon a few nights ago when it was a full moon. The passing clouds made for an eerie sight

Gathercole Reserve

Some welcome cool weather yesterday gave us an opportunity to take a bush walk out at Gathercole.
Sharing today with  Scenic Weekends

Wonderful rock formations are a feature of this reserve

I had a variety of skies today. Started off with a thunderstorm rolling in this morning, then back to our usual clear blue sky and just to finish off, we had  another thunder and lightning show with some welcome rain this afternoon.                Linking with  Skywatch Friday

Mt O'Brien

Yesterday, an elderly friend who is 87 wanted company to check out facilities at Mt O'Brien Lookout.  He takes it upon himself to go up weekly to check that there has been no litter left and that the BBQ is clean. His wife doesn't like him going alone so we accompanied him.

Luckily I had my camera as this beautiful native creeper was in flower, I can't remember the name .

Looking over to Lake Hinds in the distance
The paddocks are all a lovely shade of golden brown now that the heat of summer is here
To the naked eye I couldn't see these ruins of an old house until my learned friend pointed them out

Melaleuca along the road to the lookout are in flower now
