Merry Christmas

Fresh gum leaves
To all my friends I want to wish you all the very best for the season peace, joy and happiness too! I am on holidays for a few weeks so Bitsnbobs will be quiet. Here are some photos from the Australian outback at Christmas

Dry lake beds and

Golden Sunsets

Merry "Aussie" Christmas to you all!


  1. Merry Christmas, Simon. These are quite different from what we usually see, so it's quite exotic for me. Have a good couple of weeks...



    PS: I forgot to ask--do you go to any ballet events during the season?

  2. thanks Susan! I will reply in an email :o)

  3. My goodness, these scenes are very different from my snowed-in landscapes!

    Hope your Christmas is filled with love and laughter, Simon.

  4. Thanks Shrinky! I have heard that the weather is awful in the UK.

    BUUUTTT- on the way to melbourne in the middle of summer it was snowing the road had 6-10 inches on it. In all my years I have never seen snow in this area!!
