Project 366 Rewind {Week 15 & 16}... VERY late

So I missed linking up over the last 2 weeks, so here's weeks 15 & 16, which are both very late... but life happens and sometimes not how we expected. I was really grateful that my husband had his first 2 weeks holidays in almost 18 months. We spent these 2 weeks doing day trips or afternoon drives to discover more of our region.

Day 99 - Welcome Swallow, taken at Minnippi Parklands which is just a very short walk from my house and full of great photo opportunities. If you follow me on Instagram, you will see many images from my walks here.

Day 100 - Autumn leaves. Yes, it's Autumn on my side of the world. Living in a tropical climate, we don't see much of the colour changes of the leaves like I was used to growing up down south.


Day 101 - Eerie Moon. I noticed this while we were outside cooking a BBQ and just had to go inside and grab my camera & tripod.

Day 102 - Roses aren't always red. Pretty in Pink... these are the roses I dedicated to my dear friend Susie who lost her son last week.

Day 103 - Sunset from our backyard.

Day 104 - Monarch Butterfly... I almost trod on this one.

Day 105 - Field of Dreams. Discovering more beauty in our region. Cane fields with mountain backdrop and fluffy clouds... sigh

Day 106 - Chasing Rainbows. We had a few days of intermittent rain and many rainbows.

Day 107 - Sunset at Jacobs Well, QLD. This sunset is dedicated to a wonderful young man who lost his life today 16/04/2012. Patrick you are dearly loved by so many people.
I consider this family to be part of mine, and the loss is tremendous. An amazing young man with so much to give; involved in leadership in his church, inputting into the lives of others, impacting so many people (possibly without even knowing), gentle, loving, caring, gifted.
I consider myself blessed to have known you for 15 years. You were far too young and you will be greatly missed, but never forgotten.
RIP Patrick Francis Mundy ❤

Day 108 - Lake Baroon, Sunshine Coast hinterland, QLD. Another day trip to a beautiful area and a new discovery.

Day 109 - Sunset & powerlines from Maleny, QLD. I used to consider powerlines as a annoyance in a landscape shot... That changed recently, thanks to a photographer whose work I admire greatly.

Day 110 - Black Swan. Taken at Lake Eden, QLD - another discovery, thanks to a fellow bird photographer.

Day 111 - Manly Marina reflections, QLD. There's nothing like still water, blue skies, fluffy clouds and boats...

Day 112 - Wynnum Pier mosaics. Another day of blue skies & fluffy clouds.

Liz, these pictures are beautiful. I love the selection you made. Great creativity, not just in the great shots themselves but also in your selection of them :)

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

Liz, Your photos are all beautiful! It's hard to even pick a favorite. But if I had to choose, it would probably be the rainbow, or the sail boat.

Wow Liz what a fabulous intro shot! Were you reasonably close to pick that wonderful photo of the Welcome Swallow, or what lens did you use? Seeing all the colours so well; well done! Lake Baroon is beautiful; don't you just love discovering a new place? Be careful when the swans have their young-ones; I got caught out almost, recently when photographing from the bank.

A beautiful set of photos, Liz. I'm in awe of the swallow shot, I find it so hard to find them sitting still. Also love the swan. Thanks for the info on where your "ducks on the pond" was shot.

Michael said...

great series of photos...all wonderful

Rosie Leavesnbloom said...

What a lovely set Liz - I'm sure you've really enjoyed your time spent together considering what's happened recently with your son's friend. It brings it home to us that we just never know how long we have our loved ones with us and to make the most of every moment!

Seeing Each Day said...

Lovely to see so many photos in this post - would really like to comment on them all but... Particularly liked your first shot for a couple of reasons, the colour of the feathers really complimented the 2 different background colours and how the bird was looking out of the frame. A rainbow shot - always a fan of those. That was really interesting to read your words about how you see power lines now in terms of not being a barrier in your shots - this maleny shot has such great composition , you've incorporated it so well. Beautiful clear reflections in your marina capture. Again, I'm really sorry for the grief you are going through right now - what a sad, sad, loss.

Wow...stunning ... a fantastic and wonderful series of photos ...
Best regards, Karin

Although I follow your blog I rarely comment (in fact I may never have done so). This set of pictures includes so many things and so many themes that I love and attempt that I just had to say how much I admired them.

They are all wonderful images. I love the little bird, gorgeous details. You also have captured some amazing scenery.

Ross said...

All really amazing photos Liz! I really like the pinkish sunset photograph. I've been so longing to get out and take some shots, but haven't been able to either because of the weather lately or how I've been feeling!

Betty Manousos said...

oh my gosh! i am speechless!

all are STUNNING! it's really hard to pick a favourite!

thank you so much for brightening my day. i am in awe of your fabulous photographic skills.

Nancy said...

Gorgeous shots, Liz. Can't even begin to pick a favorite.

So sorry for the loss of the young man. It is doubly difficult to deal with a young person's passing. xoxo

Lydia Criss Mays said...

Oh my gosh, these photographs are beautiful. I got chills scrolling through them. Who knew butterflies looked that way up close? I feel as it I'm seeing them new, for the first time. Thank you so much for following See Beautiful because it led to me finding you stunning blog! We're going to go click around to see more beautiful on your site!
