Country Side Daylesford

“You’ll miss the best things if you keep your eyes shut.” – Dr Seuss

This is my first post, after taking a bit of a break during Christmas and New Year. Took this photo on our short trip to Daylesford, the spa capital of Victoria. This is for Cee’s FOTD Challenge – Orange Flowers in Daylesford and for Sunshine’s Macro Monday – Orange Macros in Daylesford

But guess what, after this trip, my camera stopped working 😭😭😭😭

But what is more heart breaking is that while my husband and I were enjoying our time away, Australia’s bushland was burning away in so many parts of our beautiful land. So many people are affected, families members lost, homes are gone, the animals are struggling, the quality of air that we are breathing are at its lowest with smoke coming in from miles and miles away. It is still ongoing as I am writing this. So please, my beautiful friends…have us in your thoughts and pray for Australia.

  5. Lovely shots, but I’m sorry about your camera! We’re praying here and we were glad to hear that there at least was some rain. Praying for safety for everyone and everything as well as that rain!

      Thanks for the comment Irene. My camera’s gone for good. I bought a new one but lesser quality because of monetary constraints 🙄 but delivery is taking their time. Hope it comes soon and hope it can do the job well.

        Oh, no! Glad you were able to order a replacement. I am sure you will be taking amazing pics with this one as well in no time. Best camera is whatever happens to be in your hand when needed and prefereably one that actually works. 😉
