Good morning from Narrabeen Lakes. Particularly beautiful vista this morning, with stunning colours, reflections on the lake and a band of mist over the water.
Leica V-Lux 5, ISO 320, f2.8, 1/60th sec, zoom at 90mm, hand-held.

Interesting - nice that they don't waste anything.
Fee_vidge is a cuisine which is not only favoured among riparian, but also fascinates people from other cities and countries. Whitefish is stuffed with walnuts, herbs, grenadine, and plums. Then, it is cooked in a earthenware called Gamaj. In few hours, the delicious dish is ready to be served preferably along with local rice. Here is Fashtakeh village, Guilan province.
ماهی فی ویج غذای پر طرفدار اهالی ساحل نشین گیلان است، مخلوطی از گردو و سبزیجات محلی، رب انار و آلو را در شکم ماهی سفید می ریزند و آن را در گَمَج می گذراند تا بخار پز بشه ، گمج ظرف سفالی معروف گیلانی هاست که خیلی از غذاهاشون رو توی اون درست می کنند، ممنون از خانم های روستای فشتکه که این غذای خوشمزه رو برای ما درست کردند.
با سپاس از هماهنگی خوب جواد افکنده عزیز
Running out of superlatives!
Received a bottle of Archie Rose Distilling Co.’s Rye Malt Whisky yesterday afternoon and had an excellent one-to-one with it last night. Archie Rose’s master distiller, Dave Withers has accomplished what no-one in Australia has managed so far: He created the best Rye whisky I have ever tasted. Beats every single Canadian or American Rye and not by a small margin, either. What is different? Using virgin American oak barrels (Quercus Alba) that have been seasoned for 36 months (similar to what Dr. Bill Lumsden is doing at Glenmorangie for the Astar). The new make is a combination of malted rye (unusual) and malted barley and it’s been bottled at 46% abv. This is a bloody cracker!
Colour: Deep amber
Nose: Sweet shortbread, coconut, hot bread
Palate: Custard, hot apple pie, roasted almonds, ripe peach, custard apple
Finish: long, sweet, slowly drying and salty
Comment: Layered and complex and a pure joy to drink. The best bloody rye whisky in today’s world.

North Curl Curl sunrise with the brand new, soon to be released Leica V-Lux 5.
This is an incredible travel camera. 25-400 zoom, raw capability, 1" sensor and Leica processor and jpg software. It's not a simple re-badge job but well worth the extra $ over the Panasonic model. This shot, taken at ISO 12500 at f1.6, raw, processed in Capture One Pro. Impressive results. @connormcgillphoto

Some Al Fresco places in London this summer
The Applebee's Fish summer pop-up has arrived at Southbank, boasting River Thames views, a Champagne & oyster bar, a boules sandpit, craft beer & cocktails on tap, plus entertainment from London's most talented buskers. The Borough Market restaurant's younger sibling will serve fan favourites such as chip butties, panko prawns, seabass ceviche, and crispy Harbour beer battered fish & chips.
Aster has launched its chic Seafood & Spritz terrace, together with Lillet aperitif. The European Grand Café has curated a refreshing al fresco spritz menu accompanied by fresh, meaty prawns and salty Colchester Rock oysters from the new ground floor seafood bar. Head to the heart of Victoria and lounge in striped deck chairs, surrounded by fruit-filled shrubs.
COYA Angel Court has created a brand new Pisco & Taco Hour for its exclusive, sun-dappled terrace. Every weekday, between 4 and 6pm, the restobar welcomes guests with Peruvian cocktails, which are expertly paired with COYA's 'tacos of the day'. New Street Warehouse has introduced two new terraces: Fish Market's 'Chippy in the City' and Old Bengal Bar's 'Backyard BBQ Garden'. Escape to the seaside and enjoy quirky ocean treats such as curried scampi and devilled whitebait without leaving London, indulge in a diverse BBQ menu or perhaps visit the STAKEhaus residency at New Street Grill.
This summer, Nine Lives has revamped the cobbled space outside the innovative Victorian bar. Expect bespoke cocktails, a newly decked chill area and street party vibes.
Riverside restaurant, Butlers Wharf Chop House and Nyetimber have collaborated on a special oyster pop-up. The Oyster Shack is set to bring Londoners a shuckin' good time until the end of August and is housed in the foyer of the restaurant, serving world-famous oysters and high-quality sparkling wine.
Plateau recently launched its St Tropez Terrace, complete with a French Riviera inspired brunch and mouth-watering Pink-nic Package. Together with Minuty, the terrace has been transformed into a Mediterranean haven, covered in plants and decorated with retro posters.

Last night: Dinner at Ormeggio. A Trip Through Italy. I do think that @alexpavoni and @moyasky do some of the most innovative modern Italian food in Australia. The experience is enhanced by good atmosphere, fabulous service and great value. Special thanks to Umberto who's wine advice was spot on.
In this pic we see my favourite two dishes from last night.
Carciofi - fave e menta / Lazio
Globe artichoke, broad beans, pecorino, mint
Pesce e cavoletti di Bruxelles / Friuli-Venezia Giulia
Murray cod, charcoal corn, walnut hollandaise, Brussels sprouts
