Rocky Stream

There is a bush camping area beside this rocky stream. I think we will go camp there one day. A little further along is the lovely green spot with "Keep Out" signs on the fence. It looks so inviting.


  1. I can smell the mould under my feet and hear the whisper of the breeze in the she-oaks. I sort through the pebbles along the wayside, choosing one with just the right shape and thickness for skimming, walk to the edge of the stream, crouch down on my haunches and ...

  2. What a delightful spot! May I ask where this is?

  3. Amazing place the pine tree has chosen to live in! The rocks are beautiful and so are the blue tones on the water surface. The 1st shot is definitely my favourite.

  4. I love the smooth form of the stones in the first photo.

    Thanks for all the Australian info yesterday. Little by little, I feel like I am getting to know the country.

  5. Julie, I agree that's why I expect to go and camp there one day once the weather warms up.

    Winam, it's on Mutton Falls Road which runs between O'Connell and Tarana ... at the O'Connell end.

  6. Mutton Falls Road ... *grin* ... how wonderful!

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.

Royal Hotel - Ganman

And I wrap up this trip with the Royal Hotel at Ganman.

A stark white forest

Actually the poem says "The stark white ring-barked forests, all tragic to the moon" but this white snow gum forest is not ring-barked, nor is it their normal healthy white ... this is the result of the bushfires that swept through the region in 2003. They are reshooting from the base and will recover but it will be a slow process.

At this altitude snow gums grow low and are usually twisted into fantastic shapes. The stuff of many awesome photographs, typically in the snow.
From The Snow Gum by Douglas Stewart
"It is the snow-gum silently,
In noon’s blue and the silvery
Flowering of light on snow.
Performing its slow miracle
Where upon drift and icicle
Perfect lies its shadow."
