For the duration of this notice, unless otherwise stated, all images have been trawled from my photographic archives... pandemic times have curtailed camera times!!!

That bit of driftwood was so weathered into the rocks, it was almost part of them. At the bottom of the rocks are endless oyster seedlings... Hawkesbury River, NSW.

Nature's Textures Series...
There have been a few new photographs added to the files of late, but not really enough to be confident starting a new month with them. Therefore, August is going to be a display of images - from the interminable archives - showing off some variety in the natural world as spotted by the YAMster's lens. With a few exceptions, this run will be from Australia.


As it is SUNday, might as well start with interesting eucalypt leaves shining out.

At last, it's the Last Thursday of the month and we draw to a close (apart from two more posts) a month of Indian reminiscence. I hope you have enjoyed it! I've managed to get through this far without, but maybe one is not too much of a brag. Here's the YAMster standing in the Palampur tea plantation. Just in case you doubted I was ever there...

Wings on Wednesday;
YAM's take on the good, the bad, the ugly and the downright hilarious in photographing birds.


The Indian White-throated Kingfisher. I only ever saw it once and had to work quickly for it was gone almost as fast as it appeared. This was the best of a very hurried series of rather poor shots.

 Monday's Critters


Up at Gangotri, we met this fellow and his brother, who had a small herd of young Changthangi - Pashmina Goats. Yes, the ones with the wool that is as warm as the Eiders' down...

Clearly they were anticipating to reap a fibre harvest - one grown with love and care.
