Neil. Great photos mate .

Here's a view of my back yard in South Australia, unfortunately I don't get to see it all that often these days.

Great photos Neil, as I live in Suburbia the photos would not be as interesting as yours.

 

Butttt...... I'm moving up to Port Macquarie soon so the photos will be more interesting.

Show off. Stop bragging about the countryside. 🤣

I love taking photos of the city too Yowie. Some beautiful views to be had there. I bet you have some amazing ones down in the Shire. Post a few and humour an old bloke. bn

We get a bit of flooding not far from my place but certainly not as bad as others

Many thanks for the replies everyone.

One of the things I'm getting from the photos is how little control we have over nature. At the same time you have to admire the sheer beauty of nature as it enhances our day to day lives. I think that, wherever we live in this massive country, beauty abounds. The ingenuity of mankind is everywhere, from the high rise structures in the coastal cities to the farmer who works the land to provide food for local and export demand.

Fishing is a bit slow, in most places, at the moment but we don't need to sit on our hands.

Keep the photos coming people, feel free to add your comments.

Nice photos Restyle - I think you have usurped the Throne. First one is a doozie.

Epitomises Australia - everything is upside down "downunder" including waterfalls!!

Great photos Restyle. I've always wanted to capture a lightning storm, but never been able to. Your photo is fantastic. Also love the flower pic. With all our human ingenuity, we couldn't produce that. Perfection. bn

Fabulous photos which pretty much sums up life in Australia, I reckon. Thanks Renegade460.
