Pebbly Beach, Murramarang National Park, NSW, Australia.

Even the Wonga Pigeons were used to being fed at this campground - they were frequently just walking straight through our camp without a care in the world. Normally they're very wary and flighty birds, and you quite often only hear them doing their repetitive "woop woop woop" call from deep within very thick forest.

A portrayal of greed….. by those that know best.

The pound signs are not graffiti as we originally thought. They are part of the sculpture.

This modern carving is part of the ongoing restoration work of Lincoln Cathedral. It’s tucked away in a small, almost forgotten recess of the exterior of the building. In the stone masons own words this carving was created with inspiration from the very worn remnants of the original carving. Due to the lack of detail he was able to use his artistic interpretation to signify the evils of greed. This good versus evil depiction is signified all over the building hence this is in keeping with the original designs.

Building of Lincoln Cathedral commenced in 1088 and completed over several phases. It was the tallest building in the world for 238 years.

There’s a small gold coin (probably a pound) between his teeth. I decided not to use a selective colour technique to display this as I prefer the full mono edit I have done.

New Image: "Gondwanaland". The Northern New South Wales and South Queensland coastal hinterland is dotted with some of the world's most ancient and striking rainforests. Know collectively as the Gondwana Rainforests, Dorrigo and Lamington National Parks are the jewels in the crown of these forests. This particular image was taken early in the morning on a wet and miserable day as the rainforest canopy was swamped with mist. Sub-tropical rainforest is the most luxuriant type in the park. Dominant photographic features include the great variety of tree species, tall closely placed trees, a wealth of epiphytic ferns, orchids, numerous large vines, strangling figs and trees with large buttress roots.

I spent the day walking and photographic for countless hours around the well known loop track known as Wonga Walk. With the rain, of course, came the leeches. But they were only a small annoyance on a location that is close to photographic nirvana.

More images to come. BUT I'll certainly be back.

Strange portraits are what happens when a bird comes closer than the lens you have on the camera can fit. This Wonga Pigeon had been walking through the campsite until it flew into the tree above me. So the odd aspect and light.

I don't know what the furry badge is on its breast, must be some veg picked up on the way.

It's only 6 weeks until i head over to the states, and here is me with my dollars :)
I've had a really lazy day today, literally sat on the sofa on my bum since i got up at 11, until i went to take this photo about 30 minutes ago (around 7pm)
On a positive note, i watched Harry Brown which is really good, and i also beat someone online playing FIFA! What an achievement :)

Leucosarcia melanoleuca.

Purely an ID shot only as it's is at high-iso and a relatively slow shutter speed (on a tripod).

The Wonga Pigeon is one of the larger pigeons native to Australia. It lives in various forest types from Mackay (Central Qld coast) to Gippsland in Victoria. These birds are found most often when feeding on the ground.

If you are ever marooned without food in the bush and have to live off the land, I suggest you consider Wonga Pigeon Pie. They look perpetually plump and possibly delicious.

Bird and photographer both happy here. This pair were my first Wonga Pigeons, for which I have to thank sis and partner who rang me specially to report that two wongas had appeared in the bush backing the house.

I was there in a twinkling and happy to be photographing a bird that wasn't (for a change) gasping and about to drop off its perch because of the heat.

Both these pigeons are common in and around the rainforest at the O'Reilly's plateau in Lamington NP, but in different ways.

The Wonga Pigeon (above) is common and tame around the picnic areas and visitors centre at O'Reilly's. It is regularly heard in the rainforest (with its very persistent 'walk walk walk' call lasting for minutes on end) but is often hard to sight in the rainforest.

The White-headed Pigeon (adjacent), on the other hand, is fairly easy to see along tracks in the rainforest, often observed coming down to get some dirt or moisture from the paths. Its call is less distinctive, and it is not found at the picnic areas, and, as such, is hard to photograph.

There are many other pigeons and doves as well. The Topknot Pigeon is easy to see flying above the canopy in groups, but is rarely seen settled in a tree (and thus I dont have a photo here). The Wompoo Pigeon is meant to be common in the rainforest, and not too hard to locate with its deep guttural calls. It is the largest Australian pigeon I think. However, we only lucked onto one pair, and only heard one other. Brown Cuckoo-Doves I have posted before. They are the most commonly calling pigeon in the rainforest, easy to locate. The Rose-crowned Fruit-Doves distinctive accelerating call is common on the lower tracks, but the birds are extremely hard to locate in amongst the foliage. They are only 23cm long. I finally managed to see one (after two full days searching), and I have included crappy shots (adjacent).

These pigeons are actually quite chunky. The best method is to sit and wait for them to come to you, otherwise they will run away.

This pigeon spends most of it's time on the ground. If disturbed (by persistent photographers and the like) it will fly into a tree. It eats fallen fruits and seeds on the ground and it's range is from Mackay in North Queensland to East Victoria, Australia, mainly in coastal forests.

Yes, this is Australia.

I felt like I was in Ireland, with all the rich green around me, when I took the dogs for a daily hike along the hills.

Taken in Oct. of 2005.
Looking back on this now, it seems surreal that I was ever really there. I used to stop and talk to the horse owners when they were there to feed and tend to their animals, or the gregarious farmer down the road. His little Jack Russell, "Tank" would sometimes follow us on part of our journey.

The warmth of the sun soaking into my bones felt good, and I'd bring back handfuls of roadside flowers for home. The air smelled sweet; A result of the silvery-green eucalyptus leaves releasing their vapors, in the heat of the Summer.

There were charming houses and gardens, a meadow of curious cows & calves, who eyed us cautiously as we strolled past, and our own dog, Gus, who lived for these walks!
Pleasant memories.

This photo was actually taken in the throes of the worst drought Australia had seen in over 100 years, but during the Spring, near a cooler climate than most, by the Yarra River, at the base of the Dandenong Ranges.. Still, by mid Summer, most of the green had changed to brown and the water dams (ponds) became bone-dry. Every year there would be more of the bleached skeletons of gum trees, eventually keeling over, with the conditions for a major fire on everyone's mind...

But this vibrant scene reminds me of a setting for the movie, "Babe", which was actually filmed in New South Wales, AU (which is Northeast of Victoria). I've never been there, but have been near the border in similar landscapes...
There is an incredible scope of varied terrain in the whole of Australia. I've only seen a smattering of the the rich diversity, so far... all uncommonly beautiful.
