Photo of the Week

This week’s Photo of the Week was not taken last week.
(It was taken October 20, 2016)

Back in August, I posted an audio file of the Beautiful Music that is the sound of the Australian bush.  It was recorded when Dean and I were out bushwalking, and exactly what you expect to hear walking through the underbrush of sub-tropical rainforest areas.  But now we are living it, with a beautiful cacophony starting in the wee hours of every day – while it still looks like this outside.

Poised here on the edge,

The lone surfer contemplates.

Water, wind, and waves.
