Welcome to my space here on the net.

Helena Valley Pool

I live in Helena Valley, a beautiful spot in the foothills twenty miles from Perth, Western Australia.

The still pool above is one of my favourite parts of the valley as is the dam below.

    • I love your water series of photos. As an amateur photographer, I cannot imagine how you were able to capture a nanosecond in time – to produce images which truly are liquid sculptures. Original and innovative! Well done!

  1. Fimnora! I am so sorry I missed your comment! Thank you so much for dropping by and visiting (there’s a follow button up the top but I think you have already used this). It is a beautiful area here. We live opposite a national park. The small water hole and dam in the photos are about a five minute drive from our place or an hour walk through a winding and gorgeous road and then track. Sometimes I take the grandchildren and go troll-hunting there (ala Terebithia)! Some of the photos of Mother Earth are from Canada and also one of my favourite places in Western Australia, Esperance, a town about an eight hour car drive from here, that faces out onto the vastness of the southern ocean. I love looking out across this expanse imagining Antarctica like it is my secret country. The beach featured in the photos is called Twilight Cove and it is a sublime place, exquisite, untouched, pristine. So lovely to see you here…

  2. I think I’m an adoptee. Nobody in my family is anything like me. But then, nobody else is either. Which may mean I’m from Mars. Or Krypton. Or the Pillars of Creation. Lovely valley, lovely space to write. Is Beau a muse? I’ve been to Perth, and what is it?…Margaret River.

  3. Yes, families can be confusing at the best of times! But all aliens are welcome here! Especially bad beatnik clown fish!

    But it is a lovely area here in the foothills and some say Margaret River (Maggie as I call it) is the jewel of the south. So glad you made it here to the most isolated city in the world. I am very impressed! Thanks so much for dropping by…you are always welcome!
