Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge- Sky


As is usual these days most of my photography is done close to home. The first one is one of a series I took recently during a forest regeneration burn. Although I don’t like the smoke you do get spectacular sunset and cloud formations in these conditions. The next one was taken during the spring one day when I spied a helicopter flying low over my place. I was lucky that it was a bright day and  it stood out well against the blue sky. Most of the choppers we see down here are either something to do with forestry or as in this case the electricity authority inspecting the power lines from above. Occasionally the rescue helicopter comes down to transport an urgent case to the hospital in Hobart too.

These last three were taken in my back garden this afternoon. A fine autumn afternoon and no burns going on anywhere nearby. The sun was low in the sky and the moon was rising at around 4:30 pm.

An interesting cloud formation.

I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.
