Our next stop: Seeberg Viewpoint

Hallo there hope everything is well on your end.

Our next stop while visiting The Westcoast National Park is Seeberg Viewpoint.

This brought back memories of our previous visit while mom was still alive… She loved coming to the park.

The wind was blowing and it was very chilly but that did not stop us from exploring. The views were extra beautiful with the grey sky and yellow blanket of flowers…

One observation I made during our stop at Seeberg was that the yellow flowers have taken over and only a few white, orange and purple flowers was spotted.

Dad and I talked about it and came to the conclusion that the yellow flowers must be more drought resistant…. Well that’s just our observation….

Yes Ruby is still in love with her sticks and upgraded to palm leaves. She enjoyed playing with the sticks and Palm leaves while my dad and I cleaned out our garden.  She still enjoys playing with her ball but due to all the new dogs in our street I cannot go play with her out front. Now we must play in the garden and that is not so good on the grass. I also started taking her to the beach, but after a dog attacked her on one of our walks she is not very sociable. It will take a while for her to trust other dogs again… She is also very protective over me. I am not always sure if this is a good or bad thing….

Every year I have visitors in my garden. This little Masked Weaver build a total of 3 nests with no success…. Maybe he will be more successful in the coming year….

After my mother’s passing and the start of my divorce proceedings I have not really been in the mood to blog and take photo’s. I had my moments when I got my spark back but then something would remind me of something that happened and I am back to square one. It was like everything was getting to much and I went into survival mode. I started focusing on myself, the boys,  my dad and our home.

In the meanwhile my Canon 7D’s Dial button broke and I lost my AV and TV settings then the light sensor started giving me problems and that put extra stress on me…  As soon as I move into a dark area or shady area the camera will not focus at all and when I press the shutter button nothing happend. I had to switch the camera off and on after every photo taken. When I was in bright light I had no problems… I had a few shoots over the past few months and with God’s help everything went smoothly. I learned a very big lesson that you must trust in God and ask Him to bless the shoot and to please make sure that everything works… He did not disappoint me… I am happy to say that God was looking out for me and a week ago I upgraded to my Canon 7D Mark II.

Over the next few weeks I will be posting all my work done in 2015 and hopefully I’ll be up to date soon.
