Katsura in Autumn

Katsura Tree

This tree was planted by us 20 years ago under the impression that it would only grow to half the height it has achieved.  Very please we were wrong as it is magnificent – especially in the fall as the colours mature to bright yellow. In the half light of morning and evening (this was early morning) it starts to seemingly glow from within.

End of the Day

In spring and late summer/autumn there is a ten minute moment at the end of the day when the setting sun shines at a low angle between houses across the street and illuminates the trees in our garden. It’s hard to capture thIs transient effect, but this is close to it. Goes well with a glass of something.

Dawn on the Bay

Early morning driving east along the edge of the bay in town I happened on this glorious scene. I feel I have not done full justice to it as I only had my iPhone with me and no proper camera, but for all that I am quite pleased with the result.


I shared this image with the town’s community Facebook group and, to my surprise, I started getting enquiries about obtaining prints – in one case, someone was wondering even asking about a jigsaw made from the photo.

Anyway – I don’t do photography to make money (always open to offers, of course) so I set up an easy way for you to download FREE copies – maybe I thought someone here might be interested too? Head over to https://sparroworks.ca/product/baie-durfe-morning/ and have a look. All free other than some minor copyright restrictions about personal use only.
