About us…

We love the colours of the Australian Outback, the red earth touching a blue sky on a faraway horizon; and the fabulous coastline of our sunburnt country, where a golden sandy beach is washed over by a warm turquoise blue sea…

A few years ago we graduated from work and re-entered the classroom of life where an education is guaranteed and all that is needed is an open mind.

Cheers, Baz & Janet

Splendid, in pink…

Australia’s Major Mitchell Cockatoo, commonly known as the pink cockatoo, is one of our most beautiful birds.

A delicate splash of pink creating a wonderful contrast in its usual habitat, Australia’s semi-arid regions.

Australian Birds – The Gang-Gang Cockatoo

Have you ever heard a ‘creaky door’ whilst Out and About in the Australian Bush…? If you have chances are this magnificent cockatoo may have been the culprit.

Their screech is unmistakable – the sound of a creaky door.

We photographed this wonderful pair at Shallow Inlet Conservation Reserve on Wilsons Promontory.

About us…

We love the colours of the Australian Outback, the ochre red earth touching a deep blue sky on a faraway horizon; and the fabulous coastline of our sunburnt country, where a golden sandy beach is washed over by a turquoise blue sea; and the characters you meet in a quiet country pub, where it is nothing flash, but you are enriched by the encounter…

A few years ago we decided it was time to graduate from work and re-enter the classroom of life where an education is guaranteed and all that is needed is an open mind.

Thanks for joining us in the adventure…!

Australian Birds – The King Parrot

We photographed this wonderful pair at Jingellic, a town that sits on the border of Victoria and New South Wales where the Murray River flows by.

Whenever in the bush we are always on the lookout for an opportunity to identify and photograph our wonderful native birds.  And we are certainly not experts on either of those two counts, so sometimes we just take the time to sit down and observe.

A pretty good way to pass the time, don’t you reckon, hey…?

A Superb Fairy Wren (In the Australian Bush)

A Superb Fairy Wren (In the Australian Bush)

A couple of days ago we were “Out and About” in the Australian Bush at Gloucester Tops and what a glorious day it was.

Ham left over from Christmas lunch on freshly baked sour dough bread, a swim in a mountain stream, and company of family and friends.

Crikey, it doesn’t get any better than that, hey!

Anyway, while we where there I managed to snap a picture of this beautiful Blue Wren…

A Tawny Frog Mouth (Australian Wildlife)

Night-jar, owls
Tawny Frog Mouth, Australia

I captured this picture of a Tawny Frog Mouth sitting in the backyard this morning. Standing tall and silent it kept a close eye on me as I clicked away.

Doesn’t it have such lovely textures that blend in so well with its environment?

Australia hey, strewth you just have to love it.

And by the way, Merry Christmas!
