And here are a few by Alan and of Alan in his happy place - at Floriade. Again this was a quick stop in late afternoon light, which was different from other years we had been there and aimed for earlier in the day.

And here are a few Tassie textures for you:
Our trip to Port Arthur also inspired me to create this bleaker image which is of two of the exercise yards in the Separate Prison (as in solitary confinement) down there. Back in the 1800's there may not even have been any trees tall enough to glimpse over the prison walls. What do you think of this one?
Sunset at Myall Lakes
Sunrise the next morning at Myall Lakes (the ones below too)
Dingo in the dunes at Myall Lakes - he was so curious and came so close to the car.
Windfarm near Lake George
Blossom tree in Canberra - October’s a good time to visit

My god-daughter, Tiana, taken at a local park
Quinces in a Leura cafe
The Three Sisters Katoomba - everyone has to photograph them once don’t you think?

The next two photos were taken on the way back to Darwin. We were itching to stop at a place we’d noticed on the way out, where there were still fires and smoke from burning off as well as dozens of amazing magnetic termite mounds. We arrived there just before sunset and went a bit crazy running around over a large area trying to catch the warm light and just the right composition. As the sun set we returned to our car and realized “Where is our camera case?!!” We looked at each other aghast at the thought of our lovely black Storm case sitting somewhere on the blackened soil in the fast fading light. Fortunately Perri was able to retrace our tracks via certain fallen trees and found it no worries.
Sunsets from Fannie Bay or was it Mindil Beach?
Alan met Cara and her boyfriend Ross while she was busking in town and we met up with them again at Mindil Beach to do this series of sunset photos for her. She has a beautiful Missy Higgins style voice and these images may feature on her new album?
And a couple of photos of Pete from Psycus performing at the markets. All part of a memorable trip!
