Day's nearly over


  1. Wow! That line of light down the ridge ... terrific.

    Now why is this smoke deeply affecting and the smoke from the funnels the other day quite offensive?

    Lovely lovely landscape ... you love of place radiates through.

  2. Beautiful landscape. Love the soft winter light!

  3. Thank you Joan for your kind comment!

    And I have to say, this photograph is absolutely beautiful--the lighting really sets the tone. Where is this exactly? It reminds me of Ireland.

  4. Hi Megan, you are in Australia. A couple of hundred kilometres west of Sydney.

  5. Nice shot. The smoking chimney adds to the rustic feel.

  6. Julie, I think this smoke conjures up warmth,homeliness and a rustic lifestyle. The industrial smoke says work. Also, we want our industrialists to be good corporate citizens and get angry when they aren't. Let me hasten to add the industrial 'smoke' the other day was in fact water vapour.

  7. I think Julie took my first reaction. Wow, this really is a great shot. Everything about it. Really "feels" great!

  8. Love the mountain lines here! Wonderful shades too.

  9. really an amazing feel to this image...essence of late afternoon in a beautiful spot!

  10. re the discussion on Strangers ... I agree that this style is your forte ... but you did good at the seaside last summer ... but with detailed landscape.

    You's just a country lass ...

  11. Ah ha ... I've been off to the sea for a few days (south coast), giving it another go, though I did keep looking away from it into the farmland it was so green.

The filmy veil of greenness

We crossed the border into Victoria cruising down a lovely timbered road before breaking into the rich dairy country of Gippsland. It is wonderful to see the land green after more than 10 years of very dry weather. But most of the state of Victoria is still drought declared.

The Pasture by Robert Frost
"I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;
I'll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too.

I'm going out to fetch the little calf
That's standing by the mother. It's so young,
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too."

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.
