ticky2002 Well Lit Workplace // Gundaline
#igershay
Working away last night amongst the well lit landscape I stopped for a moment to yet again reflect on the magnificence of the night sky.
Thanks to the moon being in the waxing gibbous stage there was more light but fewer stars I was able to see, however it was no less impressive.
I am always in awe working out under the blanket of far off little lights we call stars. To have them and enough moonlight to do our work is a treasure, rather than relying on the small glare of a head torch. The small selection of clouds were an added bonus to watch waft across the sky.

ticky2002 Über-Scuba // Iboih, Pulau Weh
I cannot believe it is almost two months since we were splashing about off the picturesque place of Pulau Weh!! This was my first boat ride out to a dive site, off to where my brother was about to go scuba-diving. I was grateful that they allowed me to come along to take pictures and then jump in the water off the edge of Rubiah Island in front for a snorkel whilst they were all out further and down deeper. Man I loved it over there and am still so glad I faced my fears to learn diving for myself. I can't wait until the day I do go back!!! :)

ticky2002 Cotton & Cumuli // Gundaline
#igershay
Working night shift involves being most active throughout the night, but also during the golden hours, dawn and dusk. Last night whilst making dinner I noticed the cloud formations popping up over the horizon that had turned pink with the late evening sun, so I zipped out to take a quick snap. Only whilst looking at the images now have I realised that the clouds were the same colour pink as what the cotton flowers are between being white and a deeper pink when they turn into a boll.

ticky2002 Beneath Them Stars // Gundaline
#igershay
Six years ago I met and got to know better some of the greatest friends I have in my life, all in the name of a Triple J Hottest 100 Party for Australia Day shenanigans. A year later, I can still recall acting like a Big Jet Plane and falling/flying backwards into the kiddy pool as Angus & Julia Stone's song was announced as number one. Anyway, fabulous days and nights were had with said folk, one time, I can't remember which, with a slice of stargazing before heading on home.
Tonight, and a very quick six years later I was working out under the incredible night sky once again, listening to Angus & Julia Stone's latest album to keep myself awake. It's lovely little moments like these that make life magnificent. :)

ticky2002 Australia Night // Gundaline
#igershay
We're currently heading home after a long night working out under the stars. Whilst waiting for a channel to rise we turned the ute off and I managed to grab a quick snap of the moon going down for the night from the rooftop. The halo like effect is thanks to all the dust that was in the air, turning a crescent moon into what looks like the sun instead. The moon's reflection is seen shining on the water up a freshly started cotton row. Today is Australia Day, so it is into town for the annual breakfast ceremony, but I don't think I'll be awake for too much longer, thus, for me it will be more like Australia Night (sleepy time) before I head back out to the farm again just before the sun sets tonight. Enjoy your day, or your night, in fact, I hope you enjoy both! :)

ticky2002 Stormy Sunset // Gundaline
#igershay
Nice little perk of being on nightshift! Stormy sunsets are always fabulous to witness with a magnitude of rich colours and multiple layers of clouds lighting up the sky.
When out here you get an almost unobstructed view of the sky in every direction, which makes moments like this superb to see.

ticky2002 Vivid Vidēre // Gundaline
#igershay
See. Know. Understand.
Today is my first day back on the farm after two weeks off, due to the heavy rainfall we had a fortnight ago. On the way out it rained, whilst out it was all around, but it missed the farm which will make work much easier, and less stickier.
This tree, the landscape, the clouds, a rainbow. Vivid as vivid could be, colour as far as you could see, all lit up by the late evening sun, my heart, it was won; as a buttery gold before our eyes did unfold.
It was truly stunning. Perhaps I will share the picture in colour, perhaps not. Perhaps, I will acknowledge the magical mystique that it was and always will be, but keep it merely as a memory for me. We will see...

Our path through life may not necessarily be a direct, smooth or clear one; but it is the humps, bumps, jumps and clumps of unknown areas that make it magical to meander amongst... :)

ticky2002 A Road We Know... // Pulau Weh, Indonesia
A road I know, a road I remember, a road that seems a long way from here. The beautiful, undulating, dense, wet jungle surrounded us on every angle; quite a sight compared to the dry, not-so-interesting, wide open plains of home...

ticky2002 Decisions, Decisions // Banda Aceh, Indonesia
#indonesia_photography
So many options, so many choices, so many possibilities... How is one supposed to know what to choose?
The way I see it you just have to work out what you want most, go with that, give it a go, and if it doesn't work out don't be afraid to say no. After all, you never know unless you give it a go... and if it's not so good, choose again.

ticky2002 Rice Field Recollection // Lampisang, Indonesia
A world away from the world I know, but a world away where I wanted to go.
Having grown up and been in and around rice fields ever since I was a child it had always been a dream of mine to see how rice is grown in other parts of the world. To have the ability to simply ride along with rice fields either side of and all around us was a truly magical experience. The scale of of the fields was so very different to how we do it in Australia, with multiple family crops fitting into the area of what would be just one for us. As in most instances elsewhere, a lot of the rice is grown for the local areas, as opposed to being for mass exportation as in Australia.
So for me, to see the lush, green goodness growing to sustain the Indonesian people was yet another highlight of my time away.

ticky2002 Sun's Out // Hay
#igershay
After multiple days of overcast sky and precipitation falling, this afternoon the sun came out and the clouds hurried off towards the horizon. As a result we are looking at over a week's break from work, as well as a maximum temperature of 31° for the upcoming week too, a nice break from the 40°+ weather we were having before the cool change.

ticky2002 Wet Working // Gundaline
#igershay
Day or night, wet or dry, hot or cold, we do what we have to to get the job done. With over two inches falling on the farm, we had to turn everything off and stop the irrigating. There was so much water from the rain that every row looked like it had syphons running. The way I figure it; once you get wet, you can't get any wetter. So I just embraced it and enjoyed slipping around in the mud and water until we'd done what we had to.
