      Re: Travelling again

      More and more to see. Looks more like a world wide trip, rather than Australia.


      Good to put faces to your names.

      Really like the illuminations on the Church. Fabulous wildlife shots.


      I am enjoying your trip, as much as you are.

        No pictures today because of copywrite issues.
        I visited the Australian Museum to see the Australian Geographic Nature Photography exhibition.
        Some superb work....
        Have a look here
        My favourites were The Screaming and Posing Black Fronted Dotterels

          Great set of photos.

          I agree with you that The Screaming is superb. Timed to perfection.

              Looking at this and checking your blog out. It looked a very impressive display.

              Your photos came out well. Very pleasing.

                    Re: Travelling again

                    Have now left Australia. Landed in Auckland a couple of hours ago and start a small tour of the North Island tomorrow.

                    You'll have to check out my website to find out what this is

                      What can I say ? Simply fabulous, Rab.

                      So enjoying sharing your trip with you. Your really getting about there and making the most of your trip.

                      Liked the aquarium photos, and in particular the Dugong. HMB Endeavour and HMAS Onslow were of particular interest to me. You photographed them well.

                      Green with envy when I saw the beach scenes and the weather. Could do with a couple of weeks of that myself.

                      The shells of the War Memorial look enormous.


                      Now looking forward to your adventures in Auckland.

                        A great series of pix added to your trip Rab - impressive.

                        I think a number of us are quite jealous of the weather you have encountered so far - it has been quite cold and drab here.

                        Thanks again and looking forward to more.

                          I regularly look at your blog, to see the latest photos, when I saw the Kingfisher.
                          Looking at the beak, it looked more like a Kookaburra....

                          So decided to google it. Turns out that Kookaburras are Kingfishers

                          I learn something every day.

                          Some years back. I was with an Australian wildlife photographer. He said that no kingfisher was as pretty as the British Kingfisher.

                          I like the landscape around the estuary there, Rab.



                          Wow ! Hobbiton


                          I bet that is a busy tourist location. The building actually look well built, and not just sets.


                          I would have to have gone in too.

                            Yes kookaburras are kingfishers but Australian. This one was the sacred kingfisher of New Zealand.

                            All the Hobbit holes are facades. Even Bag End was only 2 metres deep so that a film crew could get inside to film the outside view.

                            Glad you are still finding it of interest. We are having a great time

                              Another great set - thanks for posting them. Very much like the family pic above.
                              Pleasing to learn the facts you have set out above - more please.

                                The blog is now on page 10 - We are on the Coromandel Peninsula
                                This was taken looking north from Wyuna Road on the way to Wyuna Bay
