The Little Things in Life
I have had the pleasure of spending time with friends in Brisbane, before I met up with #BossMan in Melbourne. I caught up with some very special young people in my life and while in Brisbane I got my camera and lenses cleaned.
So yesterday, after dropping my camera off to be cleaned, a drive into the hinterland of Sunshine Coast was explored with a dear friend of mine chauffeuring me.
We missed the Dayboro Rodeo by a day.
I realised taking landscape photos from moving car window is very different with an iPhone than my camera. That power lines are overrated, like seriously who needs those things 😉
The detail in this cenotaph rifle and bullet belt are great. Dayboro has more modern statues to commemorate their War service men beside this older one.
Beautiful pink leaves enjoying a natural drink of water.
Paper bark texture and colour with the lush deep green leaves makes a great combination.
Natural light shining through beautiful green leaves making different hues of green against the paper bark.
I just delight in moss growing on anything. Something you never see in the Outback.
We saw the ducks on the road before we saw the sign.
Yes we have tree lined roads in the Outback, but some how different to these.
We saw the clouds on the mountains.
Then we were in the clouds on the mountain.
Not safe to pull over on twisting roads I found myself taking photos out the window……looks so mystical.
Lights are on, clouds hanging generic diclofenac epolamine over the mountains makes for interesting driving and scenic viewing.
Some no doubt find driving in this not so enjoyable, especially if they have to deal with it often, but since it is rather a novelty to me, I thoroughly enjoyed this windy drive amongst lush vegetation up in the clouds.
This is part of someones front fence and I thought it was just awesome, that we had to stop and take a photo.
I tried to take a photo over the weeds of the view from one of the tourist stops, but failed, but the view of the Glass House Mountains amongst the clouds is still spectacular. Yes you can see the sea.
A “black boy” and moss covered rock make a lovely display at the tourist stop.
Magnificent trees in the park opposite a church at Montville
Another treasure found at Montville. Who remembers these and how the phone inside them worked with the A and B buttons?
The view out onto the street, from inside a wonderful cafe, where we had lunch at Montville, as the rain poured down.
Lunch before we headed back to Brisbane and “things” that had to be done, fish and home made chips and salad I very much enjoyed….
….washed down with a Mojito.
The little things in life are very much enjoyed every day of my life, better when making memories with friends and family, I hope you enjoy them in your life too.
Absoutly magnificent Ann, we have lots of roads winding through timbered hills, I could collect lots of Giga bytes with a Go-Pro somedays when I go out, especially up into the Dndenongs,In the monster Mountain Ash.
Oh Greg, love Mountain Ash, great to photograph. Imagine tales they could tell if they could talk those big old trees.
Absoutly magnificent Ann
Mist and fog just make things so pretty although not having heaps of experience it isn’t the easiest to drive in, especially on windy roads. What a beautiful view of the Glasshouse Mountains.
Oh Anne I’m so sorry I haven’t replied to your comments earlier.
My laptop won’t start & these comments didn’t come through on my email.
Twas truly lovely drive & pleasure being passenger enjoying view and capturing.
