Passing winter and signs of spring

I've enjoyed taking lots of pictures of autumn leaves and we have had a few early warm days that reminded me that spring is near so I have taken a few pictures to symbolise the ending winter and the impending spring.

Trees from parks I have visited.

I visit parks when I go to my son's soccer games so I have included a picture of Mangrove trees from Fig Tree creek and a picture of gum trees at Abbotsford waterfront.

The Hastings River and Port Macquarie

I recently spent a long weekend with old friends Gary and Linda at their new home at Wauchope. They live on the Hastings river and I spent a large chunk of my visit taking pictures. Its a beautiful part of the world.

Ship pictures from La Perouse

The beaches at La Perouse offer endless possibilities for pictures. Because La Perouse is at the entrance to Botany Bay there are always ships coming or going from Port Botany. I enjoy finding ways to incorporate the ships in my pictures. Most of the pictures are multiple exposures and the patterns on the rock provide wonderful colourful textured second and third exposures.
