a morning at the beach

We've had some fierce storms in Sydney over the last few days. Cold, wet & windy. It's been nice to have a look through some of my photos from last week when the weather was completely different. I love a morning walk along the beach and it seems that a lot of other people enjoy the sand and the surf at this time of day too.

ten on ten

Ten photos over ten hours on the tenth of the month. 

We've just got back from 2 weeks at the beach so this months ten on ten is just a little late. It was a grey & rainy day on the tenth.  I went for an early walk on the beach;  beautiful in any weather. This is some of what my tenth looked like....

sunday morning

On Sunday morning I had to drop Charlie at a school music camp in a semi rural part of Sydney. It's only a 40 minute drive from our place so I thought I'd take advantage of the sunny autumn morning and take my camera and visit one of the local parks nearby. 
I even stopped a few times to photograph from the side of the road (top two photos below).

in my neighbourhood

I feel very fortunate to live in an area  that is both leafy & urban. So pleasant to walk around and so much to look at. This is what my morning walk looked like....

The sky was really beautiful this morning. Pink tinges on all the grey clouds as the sun came up. I tried to capture it with my phone in between making lunches and breakfast, but it was too beautiful. I've used a shot of the sky and added some beautiful leaves that I took yesterday while I wandered around the streets waiting for Charlie to finish his trombone lesson. I really like a double exposure.

It's hard to believe that we're more than half way through March. A week and a bit until the end of term and Easter break. We'll holiday at the beach but before then I'll be helping year 4 children with persuasive writing, watching Charlie performing at theatresports, deciding what to have for dinner, doing another weaving course, catching up with friends for coffee....and the list goes on. Hopefully there'll be a little time for taking photos too.

this morning

It's the middle of March and the mornings are getting cooler. We're easing into autumn in this part of the world. There's still plenty of warmth in the day though so I'm happy about that.  This morning I got out early into my garden to capture some of the early morning sun. I love the light at this time of morning. It seems to make everything shine.
