My Wedding ring, Elvish inscription

This is my wedding ring. I rested it on my jeans and flipped my 75-300mm lens around and then used my 50mm to take the shot.

it says "one ring to seal our love and forever to entwine us"

Augusta, Perth Australia

Here the ocean pounds into the rocks of Augustas amazing coastline! Its only a 5-10 minute drive away from the little town but feels like you are on the edge of the world:

Augusta has a small outdoor museum of antique shipping and logging stuff... Here is a variety of saw blades, slightly rusty... The large one was about a metre and a half in diameter:

Some machinery that I'm sure was once quite useful... now its rusty:

This lighthouse is the beacon highlighting the meeting point of the Southern and the Indian Oceans. The roads all have this great red dirt either as the road itself or an edging. Here it winds its way up to the hills above Augusta:

Storm clouds

Tonights storm clouds looked ominous as we peeked out our front door. We only heard one rumble of thunder but missed the lightning.

I haven't seen a good lightning storm in a while, it makes me sad.

Koala hugs

We got to pet this cute lil guy (or girl, who knows) while we were in Perth. Their fur is much thicker than I thought it would be almost like sheep wool but cuter and not as smelly.

The road goes ever on and on...

  The back roads of Margaret River in Perth. 

While on our way to the Xanadu vineyard, I stopped the car to get a shot of the road through this tunnel of trees.
