2020 Has just been a red letter year so far for Australia, and now the rest of the world.

We started the year out in heat, smoke and dust - water starved and trapped along the coastline we love so much. Surreal dust storms, mud running down the wipers whenever you used the windscreen washers and a pink stained monotone surreal landscape.

Of course rain came and natures already well on her way patching up.. most of us were looking forward to settling back into our yearly routine, and seeing how we could help out those displaced during the summer disasters.

Enter Covid-19, and, as has been observed with much dismay we're seeing some of the same selfless generous folks panic buying, cleaning out stock in everything from freezers to dunny roll, and totally getting on-board with the social distancing routine.

Elvis is alive, well and likes to Instagram..

When the going gets tough the going take photographs.

 The world feels positively claustrophobic for me at the moment..with the media needing to fill every second of the day with the latest reworked, recycled, retweeted, re-shared, messaged, barely factual (and don't forget the heavy background music) news article to keep us intravenously plugged into the social media platform of choice.

 The chance to do some social distancing with my gear, a cuppa and some tunes can't be rated highly enough.

This week presented some interesting views - with a couple of solitary escapes for sunset at Carrington Falls on Monday and some nice colour at Boonerah Point on Lake Illawarra,  to the sight of cruise ships replacing ore and car carriers off Wollongong and Port Kembla - with a surprise visit from the King topping up his Instagram profile.

Carrington Falls Valley - Monday afternoon.

Boonerah Point Wednesday afternoon...

Income and Outcome...

Well that's all for now folks ... any thoughts or comments ? Feel free to drop me a line :-)

Until then Stay Safe and keep Washing those hands :-)
