Welcome to the Photo Morsels photo blog.
I’m an amateur photographer residing in South Australia. Via this blog, I’ll share some of the images I’ve captured, and include a little of the stories associated with them.
The Photo part of the title is no doubt clear, but Morsels?
Well, a morsel can be:
- A tasty delicacy; a tidbit.
- A small amount; a piece.
- One that is delightful and extremely pleasing.
I’ll leave it to your judgement as to whether Photo Morsels satisfies these definitions. If it does, leave a comment at the bottom of any of the posts and encourage me to keep working away!
Photo Morsels has quietly past its second birthday and is now in its third year. I invite you to spend a few minutes exploring the fifty plus articles now posted. To help locate items of interest the menu selections at the top of this page group posts by a number of hopefully useful categories.

Let’s start with a Gold Coast Dawn
The day after the sunrise I visited Springbrook National Park in the mountains behind the Gold Coast.
Well, where did the last couple of months go? Lots of photos taken in Sydney at the beginning of March and a few from an overnight trip to Moonta Bay in regional South Australia. But a spot of house painting and a lack of enthusiasm for sitting at night in from of a computer screen led to a pause in new postings. To correct that, let’s take a quick look at Moonta Bay.
February already, but the first post this month is an archival offering from May 2013 when I traveled down to Second Valley, a small cove and township on South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula.
Another visit to the archives to bring a three part series looking at the Pichi Richi Railways in South Australia’s Flinders Ranges.
2015 arrives and finds me still trying to finish the Malaysia travel series.
Hopefully, I’ll finish off the remaining posts this month while it’s quiet. Done, hooray!!!
Still in Kuala Lumpur, we take a look at a day trip to Batu Caves.
A short diversion from the Mayalsia travel series as work finds me in Lucerne, Switzerland. A post made on the road using an iPad, a photo editing app and a Eye-Fi memory card to wirelessly transfer images from my camera straight onto the iPad.
A dose of the flu slowed down September posts, but we return in October to take a look at Kuala Lumpur’s Bird Park.
After something of a slowdown in new posts, a final look at Langkawi in Langkawi: Best of the Rest
The exploration of Malaysia continues with a jet ski ride into Langkawi’s Dayang Bunting Geopark.
The first post Malaysia Holidays kicks off the posts that will be published over the next few weeks.
July’s third post takes a long boat ride into the Kilim Karst Geopark
After something of a brief hiatus, Photo Morsels returns with ‘An Evening in the Rocks’, a walk around the historic Rocks precinct of Sydney and concluding with some night images of the Sydney Harbour Bridge from a vantage point not used very often for Sydney night photography.
Photo Morsels celebrated its first anniversary in March. A selection of varied images from the first year’s posts have been brought together in a photo gallery that can be viewed here.
A few weeks back I succumbed to a couple of tempting listings on eBay. One of my purchases was a rather unusual lens – a 10-17mm fisheye zoom. This Fun with a Fisheye post records my first day’s play with it.
Today, 14th January, Adelaide experienced its 4th hottest day on record, bumping into 5th place a 45ºC day recorded just one year ago in January 2013. I was down the beach that evening a year ago, and thought today would be an appropriate time to share some images taken that night.
And to go back further, introductions to 2013’s posts can be found here.
