Nature Walks

'If one really loves nature, one can find beauty everywhere.' Vincent van Gogh
 
So very true for the fans of Sky Watch, the sky starts to become a whole lot more interesting when you take the time to notice what is going on up there. Check Sky Watch Friday and 100s of bloggers with their own view of the horizon.  And because we know you like a little local colour and wildlife
And a page from my altered book on seasons with the theme of Mothers for Mixed Media Monday.

Most of the products on this page are from Tattered Angels who are hosting events all month, tutorials with glimmer mist and give aways.

Oh, thanks for the sleepy koala!

Your sky and sea is a perfect combination in this shot. The waves seem to mimic the clouds above.

Beautiful shots. The kolas in the second shot are cute and love the way they are holding on to the tree.

Ebie said...

Those Koalas look like they are napping.

When I went to the zoo some months ago, I saw some of them in that position!

Have a great weekend!

The one koala looks like he's "just there". I am enjoying the beaches of Lake Ontario but I am truly missing my oceans beaches. Your photos are beautiful and you are so right about seeing the sky differently through this participating in this meme. Have a wonderful weekend Mandy.
