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.

Lake Parramatta in flood and St Patrick's Roman Catholic Cemetery, North Parramatta. At last some decent rain. 6th Jan 2016




Some 130 ml, of very welcome, rain over 3 days had the dam at Lake Parramatta spilling over. This creates an opportunity for a chance to get some photos of something that may only occur every couple of years.
Two days before that, on another wet day, I visited the historic St Patricks Roman Catholic Cemetery at Nth Parramatta.

The life-guard didn't have much to do.

This doesn't happen often, so out come the photographers.

It's bark-shedding time.

Fingers of Life. This eucalypt does its best to hang on near the dam wall.
