Sunset on Springfield

Springfield is the property I’m on at the moment. Today, I helped deliver lucerne hay into town, fixed a few fences, installed a new water trough and did some more cow chasing.

At the end of the day, I headed out on the quad to take a few photos. Here they are!

Ephesians 4:26 – Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry

Again, these photos have been taken on my very broken 24-105mm. They look fine small but probably wont print very well.

Tasmania: Kelvedon Beach

Richard and I often head out on various photography expeditions and we always end up with our own unique views of the locations that we visit. When we travel together, I always look forward to seeing the photos that Richard captures.

Richard saw this little shed from the Tasman Highway. I was flying along keen to get to Swansea (The car was reporting that we were running on reserve fuel) but we just had to pull over to take some photos. It turned out everything in Swansea was closed and we managed to run on reserve fuel for a further 70km. More on that later!

Anyway… here are a few photos I took at Kelvedon Beach, just south of Swansea on the east coast of Tasmania.

Here’s Richard’s view.

Yuraygir NP – Under the stars

For the first night of our road trip, we camped out at the Lake Arragan and Red Cliff camp ground, about 140km out of Coffs Harbour. The camp ground was one of many in Yuraygir National Park.

The camp ground had 65 sites and offered fireplaces (A must have when camping). I can imagine that the place gets quite busy during school holidays, during our stay, we only saw a few other campers. The cost to camp was $10/adult/night + a $7/day vehicle permit.

National Parks NSW does offer annual National Park permits so if you’re camping a lot (or plan to) it’ll be worthwhile looking into that. The current cost of an Annual Pass is $65 (Excluding Kosciusko NP).

After a long drive that day, it was fantastic to stop for the night. After a quick explore in the dark, a fire was quickly started and we cooked up some tucker. Everyone setup their swags while dinner cooked.

Looking up at the sky, I just had to take a photograph of the night sky. There is nothing that quite compares to falling asleep looking up at a clear night sky in the Australian bush, right next to the ocean.

Here is a photo of camp and the sky we slept under that night.
