Pat’s Lookout

So this is where I spent my birthday a week or so ago. Well, at least the sunset part of the day. Pat’s Lookout, overlooking the Katherine River in Nitmiluk National Park, Australia, is about an hour and a half walk into the park. Considering the sun was setting when I took this it may be obvious that I did a good portion of the return walk in the dark. I had a flashlight (or torch, as they are called in this part of the world) but the trail was rough and rocky. I managed to make my way out safely, though. The trippy part turned out to be the tiny blue gems scattered frequently along the ground of the trail reflecting back in my light. Curious, at one point I stopped and examined one more closely. Bending over and pointing my light at it and… SPIDER!! Yikes! The blue ‘gems’ I was seeing was my light reflecting in their eyes. I was swerving drunkenly all over the trail to avoid them after that.

Storm Over the Water Lilies

Just returned from four days of camping in the Katherine River gorge area of the Northern Territory. This is not from that trip. I have a ton a photos from the trip I want to share but I haven’t had a chance to go through all of them yet. So, you’ll just have to take another one from Fogg Dam Nature Reserve.

Basilica de San Martin de Tours

I just returned from a quick one week trip to the Philippines, where we spent several days touring the heritage and historical areas around Taal Volcano. There are a number of old heritage homes in the town of Taal, virtually all of which are privately owned. Several of these, however, are open to the public. I’ll probably post a one or two from some of the homes over the coming weeks. This image here is from the interior of Basilica de San Martin de Tours in the town of Taal, said to be the largest church in the Philippines and Asia.

The Trees at Fogg Dam

The Fogg Dam nature reserve is about 100km outside of Darwin. It was created back in the 1950s as an experimental rice growing project. The project failed for a number of reason, but not least among them was the migratory birds that came and ate all the rice. Eventually they just gave the place over to the birds and turned it into a nature reserve. It’s now one of the best places in the Northern Territory for bird watching. Of course this is a picture of trees, not birds, so sorry if I led you on.

On another note, the dam is actually more of a low dike and in places it’s not all that obvious of a structure, even when you’re standing on it. (I was standing on it when I took this photo.) It is actually recommended that you don’t walk along it due to the possible presence of crocodiles.
