Odd looking Russian maple-like trees in Mount Lofty Botanic Gardens. The leaves were rather typical Maple looking leaves, but the branches had these really weird cross sections to them. Don’t know if that’s just a species thing or a mutation or some crap.

No idea what this is, and as much as I keep telling myself I should start taking photos of the ID plaques at the base of different species I never do end up getting around to it.
Boots & not so crunchy leaves. Autumn’s doing it’s thing.
I haven’t shot anywhere in a while due to work being busy, so have another shot from last week.
I’ll shoot somewhere different next time, I promise.
Torrens River, Adelaide Hills, South Australia.
Torrens River. I think I screwed my back taking these today. I’ve been experimenting lately with shooting nature/landscape with only a tabletop tripod (Older Leitz Wetzlar metal variety) which has resulted in some of the more visually compelling compositions I’ve made lately but also in a few pairs of muddied up trousers and sore backs.
Fuji X-E1, Voigtlander 15mm Heliar.
Back out to my favorite spot in the hills again, top end of the Torrens, downstream a bit from Kangaroo Creek Reservoir. Next house move will put me a ten minute drive away from this place, although really I need to start working on some other areas of this river system, I’ve thrashed this one spot to death testing different lens/camera combos since it’s relatively predictable.

I think I’m just going to be honest from now on; dear lazyweb, please identify this plant for me. Love, Richard.
Adelaide Botanic Gardens, Leica Summicron 50mm.
Mediterranean Garden in the Adelaide Botanic Gardens. Bottom plant is a lavender variety but I’ll be damned if I know what the browny/reddy fluffy thing is. Looked neat though. Leitz Summicron 50mm eats up that sorta stuff.

My hometown of Snapperlaide. Such a crusty shit hole, but it’s mine and I call it home.

I don’t do photosets normally, this might get broken back up into three seperate posts. Ayhoo, Top end of the torrens catchment system, Gorge road, South Australia.
