Sales and a new venture

It’s been a good few weeks in terms of sales of my works. I sold a few stickers on redbubble, which is great. But even more exciting is that I sold two framed photographs locally. I sold Hill End Church


and Autumn by the Lake

.
It’s very humbling to know people enjoy my photographs enough to buy them. Thank you very much to the buyers.

I’ve also decided to sell my photography and art at a local market in a couple of months. I’m getting together some more framed prints, some calendars and blank greeting cards to sell, as well as taking along some of my artworks. This will be the first time I’ve had a stall at a fete so will be interesting to see how it goes. If you’re in Orange NSW on Sunday 18 September, be sure to come and say g’day
Have a great day

Autumn Snow

Brrr!It snowed here Wednesday night. They say it is a once in seven year event- snow in May. It didn’t snow much in town. A dusting around 1am, but I was tucked up in my nice warm bed at that time. I was forced to get up when one of my cats wanted to go out at around 3am. There was still a little snow on the roof and windscreen but none on the ground.

I decided to head up to Mt Canobolas this morning to see if there was any snow left. The roaad to the summit had been closed the past few days and I hadn’t had a chance to go up there before today anyway. Part way up the fog wrapped in around us and I thought it was actually snowing on. It wasn’t until I got out at the summit that I worked out it wasn’t snow, but ice. It was bitterly cold, with a killer wind. So cold that the drizzle from the previous day had been frozen solid to the trees and grass. That’s what had been falling on the car as I drove up. Lumps of ice. They were even falling, with loud thuds, off the telecomunications towers too. I now know why my television reception has been a bit off over the last few days.

There were icicles everywhere. You could see the direction that the wind was going by the direction of the icicles on the trees, grass and even the picnic tables

It was so cold, I think my hands were starting to get frost bite. It’s very difficult to press a shutter button with gloves on, and I’d left them at home anyway. So after only a few minutes out in the cold, I piked it and got back into the car and turned the heater on full. The car outside themometer said it was 3 degrees outside but the wind chill factor, coming off the ice and snow, would have been at least -5. I haven’t been so cold is a long time. I did get a couple of decent shots, but missed the best of the snow. Hopefully it snows again this year so I can get some better photographs.

Thanks for looking. Have the best day ever!
