Sunrise, sunset …

There was another beautiful sunrise this morning, complete with patches of cloud catching the early morning rays. Right across the southern skies, pale pink hues gradually changed to orange as I took several photos.

The birds were in fine form this morning too, I could hear them chirping all around me, while beside me baby Magpie yodeled his scratchy, youthful tones.

I spent the day indoors, working on a university assignment, so didn’t venture outside again until tonight. It was just past sunset but not quite nightfall. The sky was just a tad darker than I would have liked, but I decided to take a photo anyway, looking across the village of Tumbulgum and the town of Murwillumbah, with the black silhouette of Mount Warning and the ranges in the background.

That’s all for today. It’s getting late, but I already have an idea of what I will write about tomorrow when my eyes are not feeling so weary. I have been reading some very interesting facts about kookaburras, which I will share tomorrow. πŸ™‚

    1. I’ve been studying for a BA, majoring in English and a creative writing minor, but along the way I also started a Diploma of Sustainable Living. The diploma course is much easier than the BA, but I’m learning so much from both. πŸ™‚


  1. Tumbulgum and Murwillumbah! I’m sure I’d have trouble pronouncing those names. πŸ™‚ I like the black silhouette of Mount Warning in the dark, it seems the giant is sleeping peacefully. Looking forward to learning more about kookaburras.

    1. Thank you, Barbara. πŸ™‚
      Tumbulgum is pronounced Tm-bul-gum and Murwillumbah is Mur-will-um-bah. They are strange words, aren’t they? I might look up a few town names from my area and write a post explaining the Aboriginal meanings of the names.


    1. Aww, thank you Kathy. ❀
      It's funny, but I always thought I had no time to write blog posts when I started studying, so I stopped. Yet I missed writing, even though I'm constantly writing – for uni! And my camera sat on a shelf collecting dust. In the end I just decided that I'd make the time to blog and take photos again, and the amazing thing is that I feel like a weight has lifted off my shoulders!
      You know the old saying about all work and no play? I think I'm proof that "play-time" is necessary, even for adults who are studying. πŸ™‚
