the brickpit ring walk

Last weekend I visited the brickpit ring walk.
18.5 metres high & 550 metres around, it was built at Homebush when they were preparing for the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
It was built to protect the habitat of the endangered green & golden bell frog.
More info here.

As we wandered around I enjoyed the late afternoon shadows...
Joining in with Shadow Shot Sunday.


  1. Interesting colour tones in these photos! I did not know about the "brick pit"! But I saw this area pre-Olympics when it was only wetlands and mangroves!

  2. Great variety of shadow shots for the day and I do love the different colors/tones! Hope your weekend is going well!

  3. Round and round the shadows go,
    Where they stop, I do not know!

  4. I really like the filters you used on these. Nice collection!

  5. Wherever you go or whatever you do, shadows are always around.

  6. very cool shadows ... and very interesting link you provided.

  7. Looks like a neat place to take a walk.

  8. Hope those frogs are feeling safe....my what big structure you have!
    You caught some great shadows....love that skinny litte stick figure way off in the distance. Good spotting.

  9. I like that the frogs were deemed worthy of protecting - all the troubles gone to, erecting this walkway. It's a wonderful structure I've not been familiar with until now. I like the perspective in your shots. Very nice shadows too. happy day to you Leanne.

  10. Thanks for your beautiful contribution to Shadow Shot Sunday!

  11. It sounds a great place to walk and I love your shots here. Great shadows and love the processing - which app did you use for the shot of your son and the landscape shot? Happy Monday. :)
