Bobbed trees

This is wide open wheat and sheep country. Trees with low hanging branches get a haircut at the height the animals can reach.


  1. Very dun coloured soil: wheat shafts waiting to be returned to the soil. Lovely curves to this landscape. You have placed the tree just so ...

    Tell me: Carbonne Country. What sort of a division is that? Shire, parish ...

  2. Got it myself: Cabonne Country, "Australia's Food Basket" is a rich rural shire in central west NSW, covering the towns of Canowindra, Cargo, Cudal, Cumnock, Eugowra, Manildra, Molong and Yeoval. The area is home to the site of Australia's first gold rush and is famous for ballooning, food and wine, agriculture and mining."

    And the name is an Aboriginal word meaning "large". The council site gives a lovely little map.

    Okay ... I'm ready now ...

  3. Great shot! Once again this could be southern Portugal! :-)

  4. hmm, I think I can post something similar ... .
    But around here no cattle roaming and no need to give trees a haircut. A difference between Australia (and Portugal obviously) and Germany.

Gundagai exploring

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
