Asparagus Rises to the top

Image attached is my first crop of home grown Asparagus. Planted about 6 months ago in Brisbane Australia and after allowing the growth of full shoots and flowers(which are quite pretty) I have been able to harvest 4 spears that have risen above the soil surface.

I took this opportunity to Photograph them as you see in the image as well as stitch a panorama for my Macro Pano Food series.

Last weekend the Family was treated to a day in the Sunshine coast hinterland Queensland.  Our guide “Kate Wall” Exceptional local Photographer and friend.  Kate softened up a little and showed us one of her secret spot for photographing forests, water, wildlife etc.  After having to wear blindfolds and driven along bumpy roads! lol, we arrived at a pristine natural wonder.  When I enter one of these forests I am always humbled by their beauty and reminded why humans are here – to protect our home.  Attached is one of my images from the day.  Thanks Kate I hope I have done the forest proud.
