It may be too late for this year’s Melbourne Cup, but do you think that this white beauty could be made ready for next year’s cup?

Maybe not. I think she is enjoying life far too much exactly where she is right now.

Captured on a farm near Sydney, NSW, Australia.

Canon G12, as is.

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.

    Yep. I think she prefers the country life .. early nights, a comfortable couch with a chai latte.

  • Sounds pretty good. Thanks Michael.
