Harling Point Rock and Chain

My daily walks are usually within a five kilometer radius of home and since I live close to the ocean approximately half of that radius is water, so unless I am out in my kayak what I find and document is found in a relatively small area. And yet almost every day I discover something new and exciting. This is a photograph taken in Harling Point, a place that I return to again and again. It holds a feeling of serenity and mystery for me.

The Darling Snowdrops of January

Here is my interpretation of the Darling Snowdrops of May, done in graphite and watercolour.

Drifts of snowdrops line the paths and lanes that I walk along. I like the contrast in this photograph, the roughness of the tree bark, the pattern of pinecones and the delicacy of snowdrops.

White snowberries floating on delicate stems have
an ethereal beauty in the winter months.
