When we, #GoodwoodCrew and chopper pilots, were able to witness a sunrise like this, on April Fools day and our country and the world, are in the grip of Coronavirus #covid_19…I felt overwhelmed with being completely blessed in the moment. My YouTube video of this muster shows-off the skills of my iPhone and #DameDrone so […]
These lovely small swift birds have alluded my camera for 35 years. Considering they are plentiful in my area, it is hard to believe. Wikipedia “The cockatiel, also known as miniature cockatoo, weero, or quarrion, is a bird that is a member of its own branch of the cockatoo family endemic to Australia. They are […]
#BossMan bought cattle from Jericho, earlier in the year, we trucked them to Lucknow 21 March and the first mob to Goodwood on the 22 March. The ones that were dropped off at Lucknow were processed and put in their rightful paddock. The 847 cows and weaners that were brought separately to Goodwood had to […]
You know the saying, the story behind the photo or a picture paints a thousand words? You could let your imagination run wild if given a photo, and one image could give an array of emotions to many people. (Children have been given photos to make up stories as English projects. I also think media […]

#BossMan sat up all last night and didn’t go to sleep until he felt the peak had arrived. Harin, the BSC Works Managers did the same, I am sure. There is now water from the front of the Goodwood house to in front of the service station in Boulia. A good 10km as the crow flies. […]

Marginal Country……that’s what we live in, meaning, in part, rain is marginal…… we live in a 8-9 inch (200-225mm) rainfall country, so we don’t ask for much.

Some who don’t think a camera is an extension of oneself most likely wouldn’t understand that some, like myself, going NINE days between using your camera is like a lifetime ……..

I hope you enjoy the results.
