  3. Really good composition with this one, Joan. I like it.

    What sort of bird is that? Looks like a Willy Wagtail but wrong colour. Are the females that dun colour?

    Love the rusty spring ... and the gridwork ...

  5. Julie I am not sure what type of bird it is. A female wren I suspect.

    Looks like this was a favourite with everyone I rather like it too ... suggests a walk in the English countryside to me.

  6. "Willy Wagtail" made me grin. I like this photo, with the rusty spring and the geometrical pattern of the fence it is original and distinctive from the usual "cute bird" photo.

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.
Musing:
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."
