Nothing beats a good sunrise photo … except experiencing the sunrise yourself. This is one of my persona favourite sunrise pics. You might of have seen it before. And you might see it again. So I hope you like it.

CFFC: Stairs, Steps & Ladders

This tiered ladder takes you to The Amphitheatre in Queensland’s Carnarvon Gorge.

It was nearly at the end of our 10 hour hike and we almost didn’t climb it.


But we’re glad we did, even though our feet didn’t thank us.

I thought Nancy’s challenge – Out in the Country – would be easy for me. That’s where I live and I have lots of pictures. And that’s the problem … which one to choose?

I’ve selected this one taken on a Sunday drive earlier this year. There’s no chance of me taking anything today. The weather has turned miserable and cold. Much colder than we’re used to here in central Queensland. So everyone is staying rugged up inside if they can.



From inside the lava tube we could look out at the full moon and watch some of the 300,000 microbats head out for the night. And, if you look carefully, you can see some of the snakes in the trees outside. They’re waiting to catch a bat for dinner.

Never, never, never give up

Every night this little spider builds its web between a verandah post and a wind chime.

Every day, the web is damaged. Sometimes the wind chime stretches it beyond its limits; sometimes a bird will fly through it.

We thought the spider would find a more stable place to live.


But the verandah light attracts plenty of insects. Some of them don’t make it to the light and the spider eats.

So, every night, it rebuilds.

Don’t you wish you could approach your daily grind with the endless optimism of this spider?
