13/4 Daily Walk

Easter Monday… Just a day like any other in tis world of isolation.  To be honest, I don’t the quiet and the solitude.  I have been in this situation now since the end of January and keeping my own company isn’t all that hard to do.  Perhaps the biggest thing is to keep oneself busy and active.  It is easy to get in the habit of laying in bed until late in the day and then finding that one can’t get to sleep at night.  This becomes a self perpetuating cycle of later nights and later mornings.

Glistening Pond
The begging of this route takes me over a small bridge spanning a dark lake. Tonight, I came across a young lad fishing for poddy mullet. He told me that he had caught one once… Got to admire his optimism.

One of my strict regimes is to go for a walk every day.  I spend around an hour and try to keep a brisk pace though if something catches my eye, I will always stop and try to capture the moment.

TeeTree Island
After walking up through town I headed out on the headland at the south end of Durras Beach. It was a grey kind of day but just before the sun started to set. Just the sort of day to produce some old fashioned Black and White photos

B&W Rocks
There are some beautiful rock formations along the coast and these at the base of the headland are no exception. It’s hard to believe that just a few months ago the headland in the distance was ablaze with the fires that swept through here
Coloured Rocks
These are the beautiful colours that adorn the rocks along the bay. These have been enhanced by the deepening sunset tat was developing behind me
Self Isolation
A man walks a lonely beach in self Isolation during the great pandemic of 2020. In years to come a photo such as this will record a time in history when the world went mad for a few months as a virus brought us to our knees

It was then that the sun began to dip below the horizon and caste its warm rays up beneath the clouds, painting them with all the warm colours of the spectrum

So that is my offering for the day.  I hope that you get some enjoyment from these photos.  They are, of course, the ones tat I enjoy and as they beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  I welcome any critique from (hopefully constructive) that anyone may have and if you enjoy them please feel free to share the page amount your friends.
