So Bright

But so cold! - Fern

Rail Fence

I've posted photos of these rail fences in other parts of Victoria before. This one protects an environmentally sensitive area that is being restored to its natural vegetation on Cattle Point. I quite like these fences when you consider the options often used by institutions - I'm thinking of that ghastly orange plastic netting used sometimes to block public access. Chain link fencing is equally ugly and these rail fences are actually quite attractive as well as being functional.

Cold Snap

While we've been looking at last year's photos Victoria has been having a cold snap - witness the fountain on the grounds of the Legislative Assembly Buildings. Fern and I drove around in the nicely heated vehicle last week to look at this and some of the other places we frequent in the summer.

November AND December Choices!

As I wrote last week, "Every year I put together a calendar for friends and family, of photos I have published on this blog for the last year or so. However, it's always difficult to make decisions about which photos to use. I am hoping visitors to this blog will help out. Every day for the next few weeks I will publish three or four photos from a given month and hope that comments and choices made by visitors will help me make a final decision which photos to use in this year's calendar. As an incentive, I will offer an online downloadable/printable file of the calendar to anyone who helps me make a choice."

Thanks to everyone who has given me their opinions so far, and it really helps when you give reasons for your preference.

Below are my favorite November AND December photos, some from 2016 and some from 2015. The printing deadline is closer than I thought so I am speeding up the pace. There are four to choose from today. Which TWO of these do you prefer?

Below are my favorite September AND October photos, some from 2016 and some from 2015. The printing deadline is closer than I thought so I am speeding up the pace. There are four to choose from today. Two of these photos are of local wildlife. The other two are unorthodox. Which TWO of these do you prefer?
