Two shots of koalas at the Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve.
Tidbinbilla was devastated by bushfires in 2003 that passed through the area and continued on to destroy 500 homes in Canberra. A great deal of wildlife was lost in the reserve, including the koala population. One koala survived, badly singed but hanging on. He was named Lucky. Today a population is being reintroduced. They roam through a large enclosed area, but some like to rest in a special shelter accessible to visitors.
Koala’s sole food source – eucalyptus leaves – are a poor source of energy, so koalas spend a lot of time sleeping and resting. You know that hazy, just woke up feeling? For koalas, that’s about all you get.
Someone looks like they woke up on the wrong side of the tree!
The Murrumbidgee River rounds a bend on its way out of the Australian Capital Territory. Towards the top of the photo, it enters New South Wales to continue its 1,600 kilometre (1,000 mile) journey.
Within without is an installation by American artist James Turrell at the National Gallery of Australia. It was installed in 2010 as part of his Skyspace series.
12 months ago I visited the Skyspace and took some photos, most of which I had neglected to process until now.
There are many ways of capturing the Skyspace. This is one of them.
