The previous 10 days’ photographs

Being the end of the calendar, academic and financial year at work, things got a little hectic in tidying projects up before I started 3 weeks leave. There wasn’t much time for photography or audioblogging!

Here I give an audio commentary [4.9 Mbytes, 9 min 14 sec duration] to accompany the photographs of the previous 10 days. Note:

  • The audio commentary is also distributed as a podcast.
  • The download a podcast you need to use appropriate aggregator software that knows what to do with enclosures and subscribe to my RSS2 feed
  • The photographs are also included within the .mp3 file. View them via Apple’s iTunes artwork function on a PC or Mac, for example.

This audio post attempts to tie up those photographic loose ends before the end of the year. Next year will bring a new telephoto zoom lens and with it, I hope, a fresh eye on old and new subject material.

Sunday flora

At last, the terrestrial Hyacinth Orchids are beginning to flower.

An audioBlog accompanies these photographs [4.8 Mbytes, 9 min 43 sec duration]. The audio commentary is also distributed as a podcast. You need to subscribe to my RSS2 feed towards the bottom of the right hand column on this page and you need to use aggregator software capable of utilising this. The photographs are also included within the .mp3 file. View them via Apple’s iTunes artwork function on a PC or Mac, for example.

Dipodium flowering
The Dipodium have been growing slowly over the past several weeks. Now the flowers are beginning to emerge (those that haven’t been nipped off by rabbits or hares).

Single petalled Hybanthus
There are many more “Lady’s Slipper” violets, the Hybanthus monopetalus, than in previous years. Whether this is due to climatic conditions, or just less predators (cattle or whatever), I know not.

Dipodium flowering 2
Now that this green-stalked hyacinth orchid is beginning to flower, it might be easier to identify. I now think it may be Dipodium pulchellum rather than the Dipodium variegatum which I had previously identified it as.

Funghi on dead tree branch
Funghi growing on a dead tree branch that’s lying on the ground. Not difficult to miss given the bright orange colour.

Monday milk and light

I stop off on the way home to pick up some fuel. Storm cells are all around me but I don’t pass too close to any.

Milk stop
There’s more than one type of fuel on sale here …

Milk bottles
… this is what I’m looking for.

Toy animals awaiting a home
These toy animals wait patiently for somebody to offer them a home.

Flood debris hanging above the water
It’s much easier to notice in 3 dimensions but these clumps of grass are hanging above the creek from fencewire. A recent flash flood has left the grass high and dry. The water level must have been pretty impressive for a short time. The topmost clump would be about 2m / 6ft above the current water level.

Light in the storm clouds
Interesting light plays in interesting clouds as the storm moves around.

A highlighted hill
A hole in the clouds highlights this hilltop. It stands out as a beacon amidst the darkness.
