Everyday Enjoyments

Nothing too exciting or spectacular to post this time.  These are some of the enjoyable moments I see out my back window.
Sunrise is always beautiful and this kind of golden morning is especially welcome as it means a nice clear sunny day.
Some clouds are needed to make it more spectacular - but not too many please! I even sometimes catch birds flying past and I'm sure I could get lots more if I waited outside in the cold for them to fly past. By the time it warms up most of them seem to have gone.
It would be a very strange morning if there were no white cockies - Sulphur crested Cockatoos - flying by. Just occasionally they stop by to investigate something that has caught their attention. Mostly I only see silhouettes but this morning they also stopped next door where they were in the sun

  1. Your skies are spectacular! (Sorry to hear you don't like the winter weather in Queensland.)

  2. Over here we say "red sky in the morning, shepherd's warning".

  3. Perfect light for silhouettes.

  4. Hello Mick, I love you sunrise and sky captures. The Cockatoos are beautiful. Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day! PS, thanks for visiting my blog.

  5. You simply canNOT call beautiful skies like that un-exciting, not to mention the fact that you have cockatoos landing in your very own yard !! Wonderful pictures ... even the silhouette pic of those birds is remarkable.

  6. I'm with Phil, we call skies the same name here in NZ along with red sky at night, shepherd's delight.
