    • thanks ronnie, lovely to hear from you …. it was quite a challenge going through the whole year of photos, the only one i left out was the waterlily!!! so glad you liked the rose, i had not published that one before πŸ™‚

    • thanks gilly, it was fun going through them all, so many i would have liked to include …. our chinese guide in singapore took us to see the statue and stood beside it for us, very funny! the moorhens have a new chick, just one we think, but keeping it well hidden πŸ™‚

    • Happy New Year to you Francine, thanks for being such a great supporter of dadirridreaming in 2012, I do love all your blessings and encouragement πŸ˜€

    • thanks Jo, the possum was not happy as we were burning off near her nest and she decided to move the two babies away from danger, she was very cross with us!

        • oh sorry about that … but you seem to have a very nice life and lots of beauty in NZ … although i understand that feeling of home … are you ever coming back?

          • I don’t know. Probably not for good at least. I wouldn’t know where to live. I grew up in Sydney, but that is soooooooo expensive…and all my friends and family have moved around. But I do get nostalgic for the red earth and the blue skies and the whites of the gum trees. i miss the wildlife…though not the spiders/snakes/and othe bitey things. There is just something special about Aussieland that only someone who has lived there actually gets…how it becomes a part of you.
            But i do find that happening with NZ too…she is under my skin with her rich greens and soft golds, with the aroma of wet dark soil…
            I have a feeling that anywhere I live/lived does that to me…becomes a part of me. But no – I will always associate myself with Australia…and definitey go back for visits…but I want to try other places too. Italy and Mexico are calling to me these days.

          • sounds exciting jo, i have not spend much time in either country … i hope you do, then i can share through your blog … meanwhile i have very lovely kiwi d-i-l so am learning more about life across the ditch … and i hear the odd nz accent from my little grand daughter!

    • hi there susie, thanks for your feedback, i hope i will have new and wonderful images to share this year too … how about you, are you back on the road? Wishing you a happy and healthy 2013 πŸ˜€

    • Glad to bring a smile to your face Debra, it is good for you! Wishing you health and happiness in 2013, and lots more blogging fun, thanks for your good wishes too, Christine xx

  1. Just popping in quickly, before the clock turns and flings us into another year – a marvellous selection to recap 2012 – (is is perverse of me to love your beach in the winter?) – and to wish you love and adventure in equal measure, laughter, joy and health above all πŸ™‚

    • your wishes are just perfect meredith, laughter joy and health are precious … wishing the same for you and your new adventure of the moving back to oz .. and no, i love our beach in winter too, such soft deep colours … Happy New Year πŸ˜€

  2. Joining the chorus of “beautiful photos” Christine! I think the last one is a favourite, quiet and calm yet movement from the grasses. Or is that my wishfull thinking !
    Wishing you a joyful and peaceful New Year, Claire x

    • yes you are right, there was a breeze moving the grasses, and helping the terns to stay aloft … all adjacent to the LH airstrip, and Happy New Year tonyountoo Claire, wishign you a successful and fungardening year πŸ™‚ christine xx

  3. What a calendar! Is that coffee table book in the making yet? Did you know when you started what a creative, expert photographer you are. You must have known somewhere within you. Thank you for bringing your gift and talent forward for us to share. What a sharing this is. I love them all, but I really, really love Stuart drawing.

    • i agree sue, with his orange t-shirt and the waving grasses it makes a wonderful image … and yes i did know i loved photography but i had no idea i would take such lovely photos, it has been a great surprise! thanks for your constant encouragement through the almost two years of blogging, your praise and kindness and sharing your of your spiritual journey has meant a great deal to me … so glad you enjoy my photos too πŸ˜€

  4. A year of adventure, laughter, of discovery, of finding solitude in nature. Beautiful pictures that celebrates the many unforgettable joys of 2012. It is an honor to know you my friend through your blog. A toast to an even brighter, exciting 2013!

  5. Love the serenity in that beach shot. The moor hen is another perfect shot….they all are actually! Thank you for the visual treats and hope the year ahead is filled with much happiness πŸ™‚ Happy New Year Dadirri!

  6. thank you for sharing some lovely recapping images from 2012. it always takes me by surprise to hear ‘winter’ and ‘June’ in the same breath, but that is the wonder of our planet. that beach looks so inviting. i could imagine walking there….
     
    all the very best to you for 2013! happy blogging!

    • she was very cross about the smoke that we made by burning off, of course she went back to her home afterwards, and now one of the babies is trying to make a nest in the grapevine!
