Large plume of smoke from the bushfire burning in the Adelaide Hills currently (I am 20-30km from this).
I hope it doesn’t come any closer.
Not much bush between me and the fire so it shouldn’t! 42C heat today hasn’t helped the firefighters.
First time cycling on frozen lake on ice skating track. Taken with Pixel 4a night sight.
In this picture night sight or even normal mode the little mill witch if lighted came way too bright.
Managed to head out of town for a week holiday break. Checking out some of the local coffee shops while here.
Man, I am jealous (in a good way - suppose: happy for you). The thought of going someplace where you can sit down and have someone create something tasty and add a few marshmallows feels like something from the past and the future at the same time. However mundane it might seem: enjoy!
Yes, I haven’t been out to eat or drink in over a year.
I do my best not to take it for granted.
Thanks to early and tough border controls early on, our state hasn’t had a community transmission case of COVID in around 9 months.
While we have to sign in at each venue for tracing purposes, venues have reduced capacity and tables are socially distanced; most activities have returned to “normal”.
Small business are still in a bit of pain from the loss of inter-state and international tourists; so there’s a lot of promotion to encourage local tourism.
Since March for my wife and me
I’m rapidly approaching the one year anniversary of my last fresh pint of ale or proper espresso; hard to believe.
We have always had an Espresso machine a decent, fresh beans at home, so I haven’t suffered on that front. But drinking espresso with friends, that’s a different matter.
A sign of the times that I was shocked people weren’t wearing masks…then I checked where you were
It was really the eastern states that were hit the hardest. Now the main cases coming in are returning citizens who go straight into hotel quarantine on return. Here in South Australia masks were only mandated for a very short time when there was an outbreak of 30-odd cases that could be traced back to a couple of people. Three days of hard lockdown and that was it.
Guys, I know this is a sacred space for lenses and sensors. But what can I say - this week looked pretty bland outside. So I beamed myself to Iceland, sat down in my Daher TBM 930 (?!), and flew across the frozen island at dawn from West to North. Had a friend fly by my side and take a snapshot.
Any other pilots out there? Took a while to get into it, but once you’re there, it’s a serene pastime.
