2016—The Distant Hills
I’m home from Australia but I haven’t quite recovered from flying across the International Date Line. That does something to your brain. I wasn’t affected going to Australia but returning home has been a challenge. Although I’ve been home about 48 hours, I’m still trying to acclimate. I lost a day going and I got the lost day back coming home, but that hasn’t yet registered with my body. Hopefully, I’ll return to normal soon.
Because I’m still a little loopy I’m not quite yet ready to concentrate on editing the thousands of bird photographs I took in Australia. I saw thirty seven species of birds, most of them new to me, and I photographed twenty-four different species, sadly not all successfully. However, I got enough good captures that I’m very pleased with the results and it was a fun and rewarding trip.
I took this photograph at sunset the evening I arrived at O’Reilly’s. I loved the layered look of the distant hills.
