Smoky Morning Walk

Taken today on my walk with the Nokia 530 windows phone …

We all have wood heaters around here, and these mornings the smoke often hugs the ground.

heavy grey clouds obscured the sun as it rose, these are the first rays just after 9am

the sunlight is tinted red by the smoke, the kangaroos were caught by surprise and beat a hasty retreat to the back paddocks

the leaf cover on the trees by the dry creek is almost gone, soon it will only be the evergreens, the belladonna lilies are sprouting as expected

  1. Your cockatoos really love visiting and seem quite part of the family!
    We have wood fires around us too, and I do love it that we still are able to have them. The foggy smoke looks terrific!

    Years since I’ve seen smoking hovering over the ground, brings back the smell of the smoke, the chill in the air and the sun rising. Lovely. The cockies look like they have got together for a bit of a gossip.
