About the PhotoHunt

The Saturday PhotoHunt is a photography blog “meme” that was started in March 2006

To play, you simply post a photo on your own blog that represents the theme. These are snapshots that you might have taken on a trip, with your family, or in your home. It is important to use only your own photos.

We are not professional photographers . . . although some are. We are bloggers who are having fun with different themes and sharing our photography. You can see more PhotoHunt entries at Whistlestop PhotoHunt and on Facebook



PhotoHunt theme for the week beginning 3rd November 2012 is ‘Seasonal’

 

One of the seasonal activities in my area is cockling.

1st November is the beginning of the ‘cockle’ season in South Australia. Cockles are a bivalve mollusks of the family Cardiidae, having rounded or heart-shaped shells with radiating ribs – similar to clams or pippins. Cockling is a seasonal activity because none are allowed to be harvested during their breeding season.

Going cockling
The cockle (similar to pipi’s) season has opened and these two were going out to the ocean beach to do some cockling. The cockles are used mainly for bait but you can buy them to eat, usually from the local fishermen.

Transport
Truck being moved by barge and boat on Mundoo Channel, Hindmarsh Island.
The truck is used during the ‘cockle’ season on the Coorong beach and at the end of the season is bought back for maintenance. The cockle season ends on 31st May.

PhotoHunt theme for the week beginning 13th October 2012 is ‘Empty’

View from a Birdhide

Australia has just come out of a drought period and the longest river in Australia, the Murray River almost dried up. The drought had lowered the level of the Murray River and this wetlands was completely empty. No birds here. This was the view looking from a birdhide in Goolwa that overlooks the Murray River. This area is usually full of water and teeming with birdlife.

White port and a bright fire

And just because I like the effects in this photo. My glass is nearly empty.

Don’t leave an empty comment, make it full.
