By Bollygum ·  · From Pic of the Week

After days of drenching rain
By Di Lymbury ·  · From Pic of the Week
What do you do?    Find a "birdbath' in a gum tree!     This seemed to be the thing to do.  These scaly-breasted lorikeets were having a dip in this gum tree and a little further along some rainbow lorikeets had found another "birdbath" in another gum.                                                           Published 16 Jun 2017.  Girards Hill NSW 2480

Storm vs sunrise
By joshdavis23_ ·  · From Pic of the Week
Storm vs sunrise. Yesterday morning I ventured off to the 12 apostles, I was about 10minutes away and got a flat tire and thought I was gonna miss it but still made it in time. This is my 3rd visit here and finally got a shot that I'm extremely happy with.                                                Published 22 Jun 2017.  Princetown VIC 3269

Under the bridge
By turagan ·  · From Pic of the Week
My purpose on a recent trip was to try and capture typical Autumn shot in the area so one morning I decided to drive to Candelo to see what I could come up with. Out of all the shots I took that morning I was excited to come across this scene as I walked under the bridge. I think it's one of my surprise favourites. I love the way the morning sunlight filters through the misty air and the old building in the background captures the character of the town. Do you think this ticks a few boxes in capturing Autumn. I'd love to get your feedback. I called this shot "Under The Bridge"                                                            Published 15 Jun 2017.  Candelo NSW 2550

Piccaninny Creek
By Greg Nicholas ·  · From Pic of the Week
Being based in Warmun on the Great Northern Hwy, East Kimberley, Purnululu is virtually at our back door. A cruisey 50km drive South on bitumen to the park turn off, then 53km in 2hours(!) on a rugged track with many creek crossings, corrugations and loose rocks, eventually lands us at a beautiful, quiet camping spot.  There are southern and northern walks, all different and spectacular in their own way.  My photo is of the southern walk along the dry bed of the Piccaninny Creek. To think that this was a raging torrent not long ago in the wet season is awe inspiring.   Purnululu is a true wonder of nature and a must do.   Get there one day!   Published 14 Jun 2017.  Purnululu WA 6770
