* The Weekly Image Thread 19 03 23 #353 *
Thanks for your kind comments WN. You can relax and enjoy the walk as I won’t be climbing any hills until the weather improves. The images don’t show the very strong,cold winds at these low levels. On the hills standing up is difficult even for a large fellow like me.
Thanks Wayne. The number of people taking to the water in kayaks and canoes has exploded in recent years.
Thanks Andrew. That image is a crop so has lost some detail,plus those are the kayakers wearing brightly colored dry suits and life jackets. They don’t look human anyway.😁
If you think of two adjoining sheep farms and the problems it would cause if their sheep got mixed together then the reason for the paint ,or keel marks as it is known, becomes obvious. One sheep looks pretty much like another, except to people like Rich,
I’m glad you enjoyed the Samsung images Rich. I had a few of their cameras over the years and was sad to see them depart the industry. Have to say ,they didn’t look like that out of the camera but neither did those from the Oly.
See my reply to Andrew re the markings on the sheep. Should have said the marks can be different colors and placed in different positions on the sheep.
Many jokes surrounding sheep and shepherds in this part of the world Rich,none able to be included here. Think wellingtons for a start. I’m sure you can work it out.
Thanks Pete. On both these days it was blowing a gale so the mountains were out of bounds for a wimp like me. Back to rain today.
Good variations and nice sundries Rich.
Whats with the vertical banding across #4 ?
I love that last shot with the sand sculpture. It would be scary coming upon it at night picked up in the beam of flashlight
It’s great what can be done with a little imagination Rich, but the bench doesn’t look very comfortable unless a certain part of your anatomy is well upholstered.
I will treat your scurrilous remarks about my French transport with the contempt they deserve. Nothing wrong with the smell of Gauloises,cheap plonk and paraffin. Beats the hell out of burgers,fries and grits,whatever they are.
Like the sand sculptures but anyone that makes you seem normal is to be feared and avoided.
Like these a lot Peter. The first is a real beauty.
Hope your virus has now gone and you are feeling well again Andrew.
Looking at those swans swimming in lakes surrounded by snow makes me think I would never survive there.
Some thought provoking images WN. #3 is my pick.
Some beautiful scenery well captured. Looks like a great day for a brisk walk.
Great captures of some beautiful unspoiled countryside.
I would not sit on that seat until I was sure those boosters were not going to ignite and launch me into low earth orbit.
Those cars just need a bit of polish and air in the tyres and the would do years of service in outback Queensland.
I'm glad the Kraken is on your side of the ocean.
Joe Blake hoping he hasn't been seen.
After a few minutes of trying to sneak away through the leaf litter it slithered into the open.
And in a flash it was gone.
Pincushion Rock by day
As evening falls.
Beautiful deep sunset shots Dicky.
Love the RBB snake. I always feel privileged when they come that close, and that one looks to be a big one, 2m ? It’s the Eastern Browns down here that get me to back away.
The heat has finally finished down here, but still humid and stormy.
Thanks Dicky. It was fine days to be out and about. Few and far between at the moment.
Your shots of snakes are as close as I want to get to them Dicky. Well captured just the same. If you can spare some heat send it this way.
Thanks Dicky. At least with the cold you would not be complaining about the heat! Snow and ice are nearly gone around the house now and temperatures are predicted to reach double digits (C) this coming week! That means spring clean up is almost ready to begin. Oh the pain!
