5 in 5 - MELANIE - May 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:

Hi 5 in 5 friends.  Here is my effort for May it was another walk with nature.  I have for some while been meaning to visit a new wetlands close to us.  That is where I took my camera today for the 5 in 5 photos.  Unfortunately the wetlands itself was a bit of a disappointment but only because it is so new.  Some of the paths were very muddy underfoot and it was clear that there was still much work to be done there.  Not too much of the wildlife have got to hear about it as yet either as there was only really ducks enjoying the water.  So to the photos :-


Top Left there were some beautiful blossoms on the gum trees as I hope this photo shows.

Top right I was trying to capture raindrops on these leaves.  Most of the morning it had been raining and the plants and trees were sparkling with raindrops.

Bottom left  I couldn’t resist a photo of a dead tree on the blue sky.  This sort of scene is a favourite of mine.

Middle bottom the shadows of the trees on the board walk were delightful but couldn’t all be captured in one photo.

Then finally on the bottom right I have included a shot of one of the ducks just to prove it really is a wetland and does have some birdlife living there.

I hope you like my 5 in 5 for this month and I look forward to seeing others that have been taken.

I love the light in these photos, and this monthly glimpse of life 'down under'.  I hope the wildlife get news of this new wetland and establish themselves soon! 

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. I hope you will join me
