5 in 5 - MELANIE February 2014


Those who follow my posts might know that Melanie is my friend who lives in Australia. She loves photography and every month she has taken part in this monthly neme.
Melanie does not have a blog and so each month I post her photos. I love that we have found a way for her to take part!
When I began this photo challenge last July I did not anticipate that this partnership would develop. It was not planned but I am SO glad that it happened because it has added something unexpected. I am so excited each month when I open Melanie's email with her monthly photos so once again Melanie, a big thank you, and over to you:

"Belair National Park is still on my list of places to go for the 5 in 5 photos but today Adelaide is back with temperatures expected to be in the thirties and it is a day of severe fire danger.  They do not actually close the national parks but there is an onus on the public to stay away from such places on days of high fire danger so not a place I would think of going to when the day is one of severe fire danger.  It is not quite as hot by the coast and when I just checked our outside thermometer which sits in the shade on our front deck it was only 28C.  Enough of the weather conditions back to photos.  I was going for morning tea with a friend who lives in Hallet Cove a place just a bit south of where I live and they have a conservation park there on the coast with a board walk, walking trail and lots of interesting rock formations. For those who would like to learn more about the park take a look at

One of my favourite places in the park is the Sugarloaf.  This rock formation was named Sugarloaf because of it similarity to a hardened block of sugar.  My photos are taken at and around the Sugarloaf.

Top left is the Sugarloaf itself.   Bottom left is a part of the boardwalk.  The middle photo is a shot of the steps leading up to the Sugarloaf.  The top right is included because this plane was circling out at sea the whole time I was walking in the park.  This is usually a sign that a shark has been sighted,  a few have been sighted out at sea during this summer. The bottom right is one of the many views of the sea which are constantly with you as you walk in the park.

Hope you have fun seeing my 5 in 5 for this month and I look forward to seeing others that have been taken".
Those of us who live in UK will be appreciating these blue skies, the idea of such high temperatures and risk of fires seems a million miles from the floods and grey skies we continue to experience. Some areas have been cut off by flood water since before Christmas, how crazy the worlds weather is.

If this has inspired you to take photos to add to this challenge you have until 25th before the link closes. It's great fun and this post should answer any questions or give any other information that you need.


Thank you to Melanie and everyone else who has taken part. Links for this months posts are here and I'll be back next month with more photos from Melanie and myself.
