Kangaroos at sunset, Talbingo NSW

Each day as the sun begins is daily descent and it starts to cast its golden light, the kangaroos that live on the lower slopes of Talbingo Mountain, find their way slowly past the Talbingo Tourist Park to drink in the water of Jounama Dam.

They take their time and will stop and look at us. I always feel like they are thinking “what are you doing here, this is our place?” If we keep our distance and use a long lens to photograph them, we can get some great photos of these iconic Australian marsupials.

Sometimes alone, but usually in family groups, the big buck and mums with joeys in the pouch, their winter coat starting to thicken and this year the sun casts its golden rays on the tall dried summer grass, backlighting the grey fur and creating beautiful colours.

Isn’t nature amazing, this area was decimated by bush fires in the summer of 2019/2020 and apart from scarred trees, the grass is growing back and the scenery is beautiful
