Eucalyptus Trees

26/04/2017

Eucalyptus trees are my favourite because of their wonderful fragrance! Of course they also provide delicious food for the koala bear.

Eucalyptus oil has many medicinal properties, and is just a great oil to have in your house. I use a few drops with my (unfragranced) washing powder to wash my clothes and it makes them smell very fresh. A few drops on a cotton wool ball, or wipe makes your toilet smell nice and fresh as well.

How do you use eucalyptus oil or any other essential oil? Please share your tips. Thank you!

Beautiful Heather

Encounter during a bike ride through the forest. It was stunning and it smelt very nice with the warmth of the sun shining on it all day.

Be like the Trees

27/07/2012


On this special day my horoscope had encouraging and good advice, and I want to share it with you. It read:

“It’s lucky for the trees that they don’t have eyeballs, so they can’t discourage themselves with comparisons to the bigger, taller trees in the forest or loom superior to smaller growth. Be like the trees.”

Of course, this does not mean you have to take out your eyeballs…

Reflection 2

29/05/2012


These images of cabbage trees reflected in the water look surreal. The subtle movement of the water makes it look like the trees move. I like the diagonal line in it and the shift in colour that goes with it. In the bottom image the White Balance was changed, resulting in the blue colour. It reminds me of the sunny tropics, and is the more lively image. Although, I like the colour in both images, for the Move Me project I prefer the top image, where the colour shifts from white to grey. To me this colour scheme adds more to the mysterious feel, and the sense of calm in the image.

Branching Out

Looking out of my window I was attracted by the intricate play of these branches. This image interests me because of the diagonal lines, the depth of field, and the blue sky. All that is missing are the birds that usually frolic around.

Under the Pohutukawa Trees

15/05/2012


I love to lie on the grass under the trees and seeing the sky and sunlight through the branches and leaves. The world goes on around me and under the trees it seems a different, calmer world with only the birds coming and going. It looks like this image would look better if it was the other way around, so I rotated it and found it does not work.

Tree with a View

14/05/2012

This tree is not affected by the power lines. They actually separate the tree from the viewer, and into its own world looking out over the harbour and beyond. The power lines give more depth to the image and I enjoy the sunlight falling onto the tree.
