Early Morning at Point Peron

Found this sitting in my draft folder. I know that its in Point Peron as I recognise the silhouettes, but not when it was taken or why we were there. We go here a lot though, so it may have just been a walk and the sky was a lovely colour.

Soft Light

Soft hues of pink and yellow green in the midday sun. I love the softness of this photo, despite the how harsh midday sun tends to be. Last day of winter isn’t too bad though, I guess. These succulents are common in the sand dunes where I live, and have the softest pink flowers. I thought I’d do something different though, since the leaves themselves were so striking in their colouring.

Bristling

“Getting out there” has been put on hold. I’ve had a cough for over a month now, which has gotten worse over the last week. My doctor has referred me to a specialist, and put me on steroids to help with my breathing. My lungs are wheezing and rattling whenever I exhale, and he said that my bronchi are collapsing. Possibly weakened when I had pneumonia.

So, instead, now that I’m feeling a little more cognisant, here’s post two from the walk I went on a few weeks ago.

Nestled in the Dunes

The photos that I’ve uploaded recently were part of a backlog of images that had been sitting stagnant on my hard drive; waiting for the day when I could bring myself to look at them. They were taken shortly after I finished studying last year after a break of about six months. It also coincided…

Coastal

This was another instance where I had a rough day, and my husband recommended we go out to the beach. It was just on sunset when we arrived, and the lighting couldn’t have been better. I think he became a little bored with my fascination for all the delightful little pockets in the heath where the light was illuminating a magical little world that would normally go unnoticed by people walking by.

This was taken at Point Peron, in Rockingham WA. The point is laced with a series of limestone walkways that go up and down the sand dunes, and around the shelters that were built during WWII. Its one of the nicest places to go for a ramble around here, though it is quite up-and-downy.

Paper Daisies

This is another photo taken on the photowalk at Serpentine in 2014. When my friend and I reach the summit we sat down in the only place that was actually devoid of ants (seriously, it was ants all the way up. Large bull ants, everywhere) for a small snack. It was exhausting getting to the top, but by the time we reached the bottom we were both suffering from jelly legs. Anyway. The rest of at the top was a welcome break, and as I was sitting there eating my banana I noticed these little darlings growing amongst some of the granite.

It was such a pleasant surprise to see them, so I took a quick photo before we stood up to begin our descent.
