Well yesterday was not the best day to take photos, but I went out just the same as I wanted to try out a new tripod I bought during the week. There is still a lot of smoke in the sky and the sea mist made things not so sharp as I would like. Catherine Hill Bay was formerly the main port that was used to transport coal to all parts of the world. It has been closed for many years now. The town is an old town with workers cottages. Unfortunately developers are encroaching on the area and it is no longer as secluded as it was. Here are some of the photos I took.

Last Sunday, I met with a photography group to capture the sunset from Belmont Baths, which is on the east side of Lake Macquarie in NSW Australia. It is usually a spectacular place for sunsets. This week it was made even more so with the smoke in the air from the bushfires. One bushfire was directly west of the lake, which made the sunset very dramatic. I hope you enjoy the sunset, created by God, captured by me.
Its been so cold in Winter this year in Sydney. Not that other winters haven’t been so as equally cold, but this weather just came upon us. One day 27 degrees, the next 13. it gets down to about 6 degrees in Sydney. Now for those of you from cooler climates this is not terribly cold at all. But we are a warm blooded race, us Sydneysiders, more used to a tank top (singlet) shorts (stubbies) and flip-flops (thongs) than wrapping up in out warm woolies. Consequently I have succumbed to the latest bout of virus, sinus colds. I have been in bed for a week, not able to look at a screen or book as my sinuses make my eyes water. Even though I am on Semester break for Uni, I am yet to have the joy to experience a full day off where I can just relax. I have only been out a couple of times with my camera, I have not gotten out a canvas and brushes all winter, I hope to do so in the next couple of weeks.
These shots were taken when I absolutely had to be out in the cold evening the other week. The winder sky at Dusk in Sydney is spectacular, and going into the night leads itself tyo some good black and whites.
I hope you enjoy just a small smattering of photos for now. More to come, I promise.
