Sunday Selections #360

Sunday Selections was originally brought to us by Kim, of Frogpondsrock, as an ongoing meme where participants could post previously unused photos languishing in their files.
 
The meme is now continued by River at Drifting through life.  The rules are so simple as to be almost non-existent.  Post some photos under the title Sunday Selections and link back to River.  Clicking on any of the photos will make them embiggen.  River is having a blog break at the moment (and will be missed), so I am keeping the meme warm in her absence. 

 

Like River I usually run with a theme.  This week?  A bit of a hotch potch.


Starting with fire in the sky.





It was brief, but dramatic and lovely.

 Then to the junglegarden.  The lilies, the roses and the weeds are thriving.









I liked the feather flower too.

I am finishing with a small outing.  A very urban friend (who sees the countryside as somewhere to drive through on your way to a city) raved about an exhibition of wildlife photography at our National Library. 

She even said she wondered whether she had been wrong to discount the beauty of the natural world!  So on a vilely hot day we went to the library for some beauty and respite.

The exhibition featured the photography of Peter Dombrovskis and some of the glorious parts of the Tasmania wilderness he captured.  It included some stunning macros of lichen too. 








 And how right she was.  It was glorious.  Taking photographs of photographs, particularly when they are behind reflective glass is not easy.  I do hope that you can see some of the incredible beauty.  The photograph above is of a snow gum - in the snow.  Aren't those colours dramatic?

I have to admit to a fall from grace.  As we left the exhibition himself noticed a small 'No Photography' sign.  Oops.

The library is lovely too.

  1. I look at your photos each week and wish I could be where you are to see what you're seeing. Even on a vilely hot day.

  10. The sky really does look like fire. I hope your heat relents a bit to make it more comfortable there.

    Beautiful flowers, as ever. The blossoms are so lush. I have not seen flowers here that look like that; ours are a smaller, paler imitation. I expect it is a side benefit from all the heat, at least until the heat dries everything to a frazzle.

    I'm glad you had that outing. Who says people can't change? Your friend seems to be going there :)

    I did smile when I read about the ‘no photography’ sign, I’ve done the same thing myself in the past and felt incredibly guilty about it. Still no harm done, it just means more of us have the chance to see them.
