About Me

My photo

With more time on my hands these days, this gives me something to do. I hope you get some pleasure, along with me, in sharing this new stage of my life.

Bushfires in the Blue Mountains.

Hundreds of homes were feared destroyed in the most grave bushfire crisis NSW has seen in a decade.
These photos were taken from home at around 4:30 this afternoon.

Sara, my granddaughter, thought it was the moon, she had never been able
 to look directly at the sun before.

Looking across the road.
 
 

The eerie light brought out the colours.
 
A Cockatoo hangs on in the strong winds.
 
The sun through the smoke gave it a Martian look.

Burnt leaves found in the yard from the fires nearly 37 kms away.
 

Our smallish fire down the creek behind our place last Sunday.

(only 7 brigades were required)
 
The fire reached the back of some houses but no damage done.
 
Helicopters came to investigate........
 

.......and Elvis flew over as well.
