Two days ago I visited a park in Tweed Heads, which you may recall visiting with me in May of this year. We walked over the bridge and had a wander around beneath the shade of the trees, looking at the river with all the boating activity, the picnickers under the trees, and the mangroves.
When I returned the other night it was just on nightfall and the photos I took were totally different to those taken in May. Included in my nighttime images was a silhouette of the jetty, so different to when we saw it during the day in May, with the activity of boats coming and going.
Just before I reached the jetty I noticed movement on the grass and when my eyes adjusted to the lack of light, there I saw six Australian Wood Ducks, out for a moonlit stroll in the park.
You may remember my handsome pair of wood ducks who have visited my back garden during the winter, turning my swimming pool into a winter duck pond!
It was such a beautiful night, just a slight cool breeze and overhead the moon peeked at me through the silhouette of a tree.
A blipfoto friend in England told me that our Australian moon is upside-down to the Northern Hemisphere moon! I didn’t know that, and always think the moon is smiling down on the world when it looks like this.
Yesterday morning, when my email arrived in my inbox, announcing that this weeks WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge was “Silhouettes” I was delighted, the timing couldn’t have been better!
