You know it is hot when there are clusters of 
dragonflies seeking respite in the garden.

“Like bears to a honeypot” the cattle love their bale of silage.

Even the Galahs are feeling the heat.

And I'm very excited to give you an update on our family 
of Kookaburras that made a nest in the hayshed 
The 2 chicks have flown the nest.

Surprisingly, given the heat, enough dew for baling this morning.

This is what a wind storm does to raked lucerne.
Took 3 hours this morning to sort out after I did such a beautiful job of raking yesterday morning.

The sun rises on a new year, and it finds me raking again.

It was New Year’s Day 2013 whilst I was raking in the wee hours of the morning listening to the radio that I was inspired to challenge myself with this daily photographic blog. A year on and I have learnt so much, have a renewed passion for photography with a partiality for sunrises & sunsets (did you notice?) and still enjoying it, that I don’t think I will be able to stick to just one year. So more photos for 2014 I think. Can’t promise it will be every day like 2013 (bar the holiday), but we will see how we go.

Thanks for all your continued support and encouragement.
