sigh, i think i have to remove the date altogether - previous post is actually saturday.
TODAY IS SUNDAY and it's been good - a very early start and a drive into mildura at 6.30 to meet martin at the art vault, then a drive out to hattah lakes, about 40 minutes away through great australian landscape and terrific cool overcast weather with a really fresh breeze, so refreshing after the heat and humidity of the last few
days. it's great to be driven for a change - so good to actually hang out the window and really see everything. great skies on the way in
Martin was on the hunt for birds, camera perched on his lap. i was happy to look at everything and it was great to be out in the landscape with my sketchbook and camera.
it was a perfect opportunity to really look at what grows naturally here, the wonderful colours of the saltbush and other things that i've yet to identify. off to the native plant nursery with a few contraband souvenirs.
my bird photos are a bit sad and the battery died late morning, but i'm looking forward
to see martin's shots, we saw some fabulously colourful parrots, simply luminous.
