Square Sky 27: Sky and surfer

Sky reflected in wet sand, Bondi Beach.

When the tide and wind and light are right, there’s a moment after a wave has rushed ashore when the sand is covered by a thin, reflective sheen of water. Such as in this photo at Bondi Beach.

Square Sky 24: Watery sunrise

Who knew the North Sea could look so mysterious?

“Watery” not online because it’s at sea, but because there’s a wavering, watercolour look to this photo. This is off the coast of Belgium, shot on a morning watch from the tall ship ‘Tenacious’ in 2006.

Random Fridays: Autumn Leaves

Most native Australian trees don’t lose their leaves when autumn comes, but the imports certainly do. This plane tree near Circular Quay in Sydney is displaying about as much autumnal colour as we get. With late afternoon sun shining through the leaves, they glow against the reflection of the pure blue sky seen in an office tower behind.

Random Fridays: Buttons

Buttons

How cool are these buttons? I came across this shop that sells nothing but buttons, but not ordinary boring buttons! My first thought when I saw the window displays was that these were little cakes or chocolates. If you look at the feature image, you can see that the out-of-focus buttons in the foreground do look like chocolates.

Random Fridays: Ripples

This photo was taken 15 minutes after my supermoon photo — one way looking west, the other looking east. The wake of a passing small boat flung ripples through the smooth water, creating these wonderful reflections.
