A few days ago I could see some bits of a rainbow. I tried to take some pictures. But all the colours were gone before I managed to catch them with my camera.

This month we already had quite a bit of rain. I always love to go for walks in the ‘bush’ after it has been raining. Walking among trees and breathing in this beautiful fresh air is just wonderful. I recently took a few photos when the rain stopped for a while. We are very much in the midst of winter now here on the East coast of Australia: Even during the day it does not get very warm at all. In our Yoga class Peter and I were given a few tips how to warm the body on a cold morning. It is really not necessary to keep the heaters on all the time. One can warm the body just by moving a certain way. These Yoga movements are very relaxing. It is like a meditation. All it needs is to take the time to concentrate on my own body, on my breathing and how the different parts of my body move or keep still.

As far as taking pictures is concerned, I find when I take a picture of something I teach myself to look properly at the subject. I like to look at some details in nature. Often I am amazed how the camera sees more than I ever do.

Here now are some of my recent pictures:

  1. Very nice, Uta. The chillies look very nice. Here we tried too, but for chillies it might be a bit too cold. Exercise is always good. Helvi is always urging to take longer walks while I am more inclined to take shorter ones.

    1. I think it is great, Gerard, that you and Helvi go out walking a lot. Keep enjoying it! 🙂
      By the way behind the chillies we planted some kale that has no curly leaves. Seems to be doing well despite the cold weather.The kale we buy in the shops usually has curly leaves. The other day we bought a big very fresh looking bunch for 99 cents! 🙂

  2. Oh, so beautiful, Uta! The rain makes everything look and smell so wonderful! Everything seems to come alive and smile after a good rain! 🙂 And the rainbow is wonderful!

    We are suppose to get rain the next 3 days! I hope it arrives! I will welcome it! 🙂

    HUGS to you and Peter!!! 🙂
