Mangroves 2

Another mangrove photo taken last weekend.

Still not feeling too good but getting plenty of sleep. I don't seem to be able to stay awake for more than an hour at the moment.

I had a doctors appointment this morning and have had lots of tests and am now taking antibiotic so hopefully they will kick in soon.

Just across the road from where this photo was taken is bushland and last night there was a bushfire in this area. It is quite close to our house and this morning our cars were covered in ash from the fires.

I suspect that the fire was deliberately lit because last night wasn't particularly warm and we did have a sprinkling of rain too, so not the kind of weather for a bushfire to start spontaneously.

Smoke from the fires isn't helping my cough and even though the fire is under control it is still pretty smoky this evening.



A lovely scene , take care

I love mangroves - they are such an amazing ecosystem

Gorgeous shot again.

Glad you are sleeping a lot and hopefully that will help. I turn into a koala when I am poorly - I am convinced the body heals best when you completely rest it. Except my pesky back, which is stiff as a board in the mornings currently LOL There my theory fails me! Wishing you well again soon, lovely lady. Hope the fire is out and gone soon.

Great capture :)

Nice shot Babs. Sorry to read about your troubles, I hope things pick up soon.
December 11th, 2018  
I do hope the fire wasn't started deliberately Babs, though with what you've said I would suspect it probably was. Hope you're feeling better soon. Nice capture of the mangroves :)

This is lovely. I am mystified by people who deliberately start fires. They have real character flaws.
December 11th, 2018  
Awesome capture. Hope you feeling much better.
December 11th, 2018  
really like the detail on those interesting structures. hope you'll feel better soon

Lovely image, look after yourself Babs :)

Beautiful photo. I'm glad you are getting lots of sleep. That does seem to help the body heal.

Just like you would imagine a mangrove place to look like! Beautiful it is too! Fire sounds dodgy to me....some people have some weird bad ideas of how to spend their time! Glad you had tests etc!
December 11th, 2018  
Are they in salt water or fresh? What an odd life.
December 11th, 2018  
Great capture

@Dawn @lyndamcg @happysnaps @helenhall @beryl @pcoulson @hermann @annied @casablanca @ludwigsdiana @gilbertwood @gamelee @paul10 @louannwarren @leestevo @merrelyn @henrir @happypat @elisasaeter Thanks sorry for the group reply again, but still not feeling too good. Had a rough night last night. Hopefully I will feel well enough to be able to sit at the computer soon and check out your photos. For some reason the brightness of the computer screen really hurts my eyes.

Just across the road from this photo are the Mambo wetlands where our bushfire was on Monday. I think it has almost wiped out the koala habitat in the wetlands.
Here is a link to what the fire looked like. One scene in the link is from our local shopping centre. No wonder our cars were covered with ash on Tuesday morning, so close.

@casablanca Sorry to hear your back is still not good. We make a right pair don't we.

@angelar Salt water Angela the mangroves are in the ocean.

Very pretty. Feel better soon.

Super image! The fires sound worrying. I hope they were a one off.
December 12th, 2018  
A lovely composition and capture. Fav!! 😀
December 12th, 2018  
Stories like this just make me sick- how can people do that? No conscience whatsoever. Hopefully something can be done to help out the koalas- as for the people who started this? Maybe we should set their house on fire.

Lovely photo. People who deliberately start fires really make me angry.
