Raindrops

I went out for a ramble with my camera today; and was rewarded with two ticks trying to hitch a ride back to my place. I hope it was only two. I have double checked. You can’t always be sure you found all of the little blighters though. I found a dirt path along the limestone cliffs that wound its way through the undergrowth. It was hard to resist.

Hiking in the Rain

This is another photo recovered from the corrupted SD card that Sam managed to perform a successful recovery on. Its from the same holiday as Albany – 2013. On the way back up we pulled over by a small, nondescript carpark for lunch. We seen an old, moss-covered sign that indicated there was a trail through the forest leading down to a waterfall. Since it had been raining for the past week we thought we’d see if the waterfall was running. Sadly, it wasn’t. But the walk was lovely.

On the points of needles

A rainy day spent driving through the hills surrounding Perth, in Western Australia. We put the seats down in the back of the car, threw in our camp mattress and spent the afternoon listening to the rain, reading and having an indoor picnic. During a brief break in the showery weather, I ducked out with my camera and wandered around for a bit.

The air was cool, and crisp. The only sound the gentle tapping of raindrops as they fell through leaves and branches to the wet earth below.
