Good photos, Davo!

TY, Vincent, and in reply to your comment on the previous post - it's not so much a question of "whinging" about the weather .. more along the lines of; am in a situation where the most interesting things that happen around here ARE the sunrises, sunsets; and what the birds do. Changes in the weather ARE sort of something different to talk about .. besides, this area is relatively fortunate as far as rains go .. there are still vast areas around Aust still gripped in drought - the disastrous condition of the area around the Murray mouth is one result (apart from the effin' "water policies" of the various state administrations).

"When will we ever learn .."

They are the things which interest me too. like that cloud you depict with its "anvil" excrescence at the top (cumulo-nimbus if I am not mistaken) and the crown shape as a drop hits the water's surface; the rain pelting down behind a saturated guy-rope; the pathetic camping scene. The pictueres remind me of summer camping here in England, where the weather is seldom reliable for more than two or three days at a stretch.

These photos are unique and beautiful. I would think it would be difficult to get good shots in a rainstorm.

It's been the most wonderful spring and summer since I moved here. I'm doing a lot of camping and last week hiked to the hot springs two times.

I'm loving it.

Not that I care what the weather is like being as I go camping the year around and am equipped to deal with it.

I hope that all is going well with you. Bill

and what the birds do.

Mostly, they eat, fly around, and shit on things. Ah, to be a bird. :-)

Good heavens, I saw the tent and thought your caravan got repossessed.

Not yet, RH. I figure that if i keep moving, they can't find me. If they can't find me, they can't own me (or my possessions).

I thoroughly concur. There are two thornbills building a nest in the silky oak, as I type--it is the most fascinating thing. And I think I've figured out why cockies make such a hideous noise. It's to scare the bejesus out of everything else. If you're big and white and therefore pretty conspicuous, it's a good idea to have a very loud and ugly voice that makes everything around you cringe and get out of your way.
