Jelly Balls

Jelly Balls

We bought these weird jelly balls that absorb and retain water so that plants can grow in them. A sort of decorative soil, if you will. The balls start out as tiny grains that look like dried fish eggs, but once you soak them in water for a few hours, they grow to about half an inch in diameter. I thought they looked interesting up close, and actually sort of reminded me of the Macintosh screensaver. But once I started taking photos, I realized there was a lot more detail going on, which I find makes the photo a lot more interesting.

This image makes a great wallpaper. You can download a copy here.

Hill Inlet

The fine white sand of Hill Inlet and Whitehaven beach in Australia’s Whitsunday Islands.

This spectacular area is the closest I’ve come to paradise, I think.  I’m of the opinion that no photo can adequately capture this absolutely spectacular view.

Uluru Outback

Another shot of Uluru and the Australian outback.  Shot at 10mm you can really get a feel for how unique Uluru (Ayers Rock) really is in the vast outback.   There is nothing around it for many, many kilometers and the top of Uluru is about 1100 feet high so it really stands out .

This may not be the world’s largest monolith (some claim that Mt. Augustus is bigger–it’s also in Australia) but it certainly is the most impressive.
