    The birds were a lucky bonus Jill - I saw the clouds, grabbed the camera and just as I put it up to take a photo the birds flew into frame :)

    Ah yes, I thought that was the Church on Musgrave Road! Well done.

    Funny, just before I first saw this pic on Tues afternoon I was finishing a shoot when I saw a flock of Ibis flying in formation -- the dying sunlight lent them an orangey pink glow against the vivid blue sky. Alas, I was engaged in conversation and too slow to snap. Worse, I was still smarting over 'the one that really got away' a few minutes earlier: a 70+ y.o. bushie with Australiana etched on his wizened face, a rollie dangling from his lips, a beaten-up old bush hat slouched on his head and a stump where his left leg used to be. I asked but he was camera shy. Nonetheless, I have his phone number and I'm gonna try, try again! :)

    That's the church Iain. One of these days I'll make an effort to go photograph it - possibly after I get a wider lens.

    Well here's wishing you luck on that one - he sounds like an excellent subject!

    I like this too - the sky is really pretty and it was a nice piece of luck with the birds!

    Not bad for a shot through a dirty windscreen eh ?
