Afternoon delights…

A snapshot series from yesterday afternoon… it was one of those days that just seemed to ooze a little magic.

First – Cal our jackaroo riding a young mare on the flat near our house.  ‘Assisted’ by Axel, who wanted to participate but just wasn’t sure how.

Am not sure Cal or the mare appreciated his effort, but everyone stayed in one piece which is always nice.

Dash and some schoolmates ‘fishing’, as a birthday treat …

Or in this case, chatting a lot and paddling (Dash doing less of the latter than the former).

The reflections were truly lovely…

Then Mother Nature got all ‘You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet, Baby’ on us…

With the light changing constantly, the effects were mesmerising. These two pics taken seconds apart..

I ♥ Mother Nature.
