Yeh - well good luck little Missy - cause there's
been plenty a'tried afor
and we's still on the loose - and they's a'pushin

you won't catch -
Well I've said it before - and I'll no doubt say it again - but
my God - we've had some unbelievable colours in the sky these past
nights. You know we are dealing with the same sun here, that you've
got - and you may recall - that we had about a million glorious sunsets -
while we were out in paddock - so it's not just here. It's happening
everywhere. And you know what? I'm starting to suspect
it's been going on for a while.
As I've told you before - I don't just hang around - camera
poised waiting for the magical shot. Most of the time I'm just
sitting right here as night falls - and will see some colour building through
the windows - and then just go upstairs and click click click around - and
there you have it. Every now and then - I'll come back in -
straightway transfer them all across to the computer in a few seconds - and
while I'm here - I sometimes see more colour - will go back up on deck - and
snap a few more.
That's the beauty isn't it - of the digital camera - you
can take 50 shots just sweeping around - and the odds are good - that some
wil be just right. That might seem a lot - but it's not - because in
doing the panoramas - it's nothing to take 10 or 12 - moving a little further
around with each one - to get the whole vista. And that's exactly
what I've done here for you now.
I want to tell you that every one of these photos
that will now follow - were taken just as I've described - of the one sunset - on the one evening - over the space of only about
10 minutes. The extraordinary colours changing
moment by moment - and from one horizon to the other - an array of completely
different hues - I have done nothing to change the colours in any

Well that just about brings us to the end of another day - and
it'll soon be time to hit the sack - there's still a few photos to catch up on -
of things happening around - like for example - the other day - when the
Maritime Services Boat - was cruising about - which none of the yachties are
keen to see.
It turned out to be just towing an old wreck of a yacht - loaded
with junk all over the deck (no wait a minute that's us) to the nearby Police
mooring - but who knows why. I'll find out and let you know.
But anyway Penny (the Poser) - the ever
vigilant - was right on to them.
Nothing get's by her.
(Unless she's asleep - when
an elephant could walk by unnoticed)
Bye for now.
