School of Arts

I liked the colour of the fresh spring growth against the soft green walls of the School of Arts at Lucknow. This is an old gold mining town ... the name seems appropriate.


  1. I envy you! :-) Wish it was spring here... It's been raining all day and winter hasn't started yet!
    Lovely photo.

  2. Lucknow????
    I love the shadows of the branches and leaves - signs of spring. I bet you will get a lot of sighs from us Europeans the next weeks and months.

  3. Yes, you've done a great job portraying spring in Australia, all those soft greens...just as wonderful as all the bright greens we normally see everywhere. This reminds me of your wheat photograph, one of my favorites.

  4. Another wooden building! Bricks are not so popular down there?

  5. Hi everyone, not much spring here any more ... it's getting very hot as you will see on my next trip. So sigh on.

    AB, this building is actually of corrigated iron. Bricks are hugely popular, most modern buildings and older buildings in Sydney are built with them but in rural areas they tended to use the local material (often timber) or corrigated iron which is light to transport.

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."
