Friday Foto Finder; Flag

This is Australia’s Parliament House

Build deceptively low, on the brow of a hill.

Closer and carefully composed, this is the flag which flies above.

With the National Coat of Arms in front of it.

But the flag I like best is the one I fly on my kayak, the Yellow Pearl

Friday Foto Finder; Tree

My favourite tree is the Morton Bay Fig Tree.

From Queensland, it has been used as a shade provider and, in older age, becomes a statement in Perth.

As a true Fig, its fruit is edible by both humans and by many, many critters, ranging from possums to parrots.

This one is around 110 years old and is in Kings Park. The row of Eucalypts behind are a part of our “tree memorials” which has thousands of trees lining the roads though the park. Each one commemorates one of our fallen soldiers.

I like them, not just for the shade and its spreading habit but because of its spectacular roots.

They provide stability for the tree and shelter and small caves for people and for critters.

Friday Foto Finder; Rain

Looking through my photo collection I found I have many images of showers of rain in the distance or of those delightful by-products, rainbows.

I have very few of rain in droplet form.

The not very good best was taken at night in a light shower and I caught just a few drops in the flash.

I have found one of a downpour.

Much more satisfying as there is rain dulling the view and rivers of water falling from the roof.
