My pictures for this challenge are from my archives. I have just a few more days to pack everything and no time at all to go anywhere to take photos so I’m looking for some new angles on old photos.
Here are some photos that I took specifically for this challenge during our visit to Sisters Beach yesterday. The weather was very changeable with heavy showers followed by short fine breaks. I thought that the colour of the sea and the sky suited the theme very well. Aren’t these clouds dramatic?
The Gleditsia tree is a bright yellow-green which contrasts with the mid-green of the grass and the darker green of trees in the background.
Ferns and moss-covered trees near Strahan.
For some reason, green is a very popular colour for locomotives.

I knew just what I wanted to photograph for this weeks challenge. I have a big jar of shells I collected when we lived in South Australia and I keep them in my bathroom along with a few I’ve bought here and there.

This is going to be one of those weeks when I don’t get to take photos so here are a few from home and from the model train show.
I am a bit late getting this post up but decided to do it anyway because cars and trucks are a fun subject to photograph. I took these this morning when I took Cindy for a short walk to the local football ground. It is about 300m from my house and the intersection is a good spot to photograph the big log trucks as you can hear them coming from some distance away and they have to slow down to get around the corner. The Huon Highway is not a highway like the big ones that many of you overseas are used to. It’s not even much of a road compared to the Bass or Midland Highways here in Tasmania. The speed limit outside my house is 100kmh, slowing to 80kmh just past me on the outskirts of Geeveston. There is no footpath so walking that 300m is something I only do in daylight.
I was actually heading home when this last truck appeared around the corner. I had time to take the last two photos and hold Cindy tightly while it passed us. Luckily there was enough room to get out of the way. You can see from the first two photos that there is not a lot of room to walk while crossing the small bridge and it is safer to walk on the side with the concrete kerb even though I normally prefer to be facing the oncoming traffic.
