Night time

Thought I would just show a few pics of the night time world of Australia. Obviously some Photoshopping has been applied… Just in case you’re wandering why we would be standing next to what probably looks like an erupting volcano…??
The first pic was taken when we pulled over on the way back from our trip to The rainforest… Simon managed to time it pretty much perfectly for the sunset…


The next 3 were taken when Kirsty and myself had a little trip to the Gold Coast. The first 2 are views from the hotel room…


I had a little play with this one…

We then managed a trip to the top of the Q1 building. Where we got a shot of the town below us…

After we got back to Brisbane we then all went for a trip to Mount Cootha. The only sensible thing we could at this point was get a nice landscape photo, a picture of the trees in the sunset, followed by a bit of silhouetted acrobatics to amuse the locals and then a beautiful piece of writing in the air…

  

Bird Man!

Forget climbing trees using branches. What you need is a ladder! All the great views and only half the effort!



You also get tree walks, coffee, and birds.

Lots and lots of birds!

Greedy birds. Angry birds. Birds that bite. Birds that scratch. Birds that really really like seeds!
Let’s introduce the bird man…


They’re not all angry. If you had enough seed you could happily look after two without incident… Although there would always be a few envious looks at the other pile of seed…


It was also possible to get bird selfies. There was a certain amount of bribing to get them to smile…


Some could be trained to untie shoe laces…


But the most exciting part was watching 2 turkeys fight.

There would have to be a loser…

And that loser would taste nice with roast potatoes and sprouts…
