Haystacks


And no drive is complete without looking for a haystack - not quite so pleasing when wrapped in plastic.

The farmland around here is so lush.

  5. Yes, they are ugly - wrapped in plastic. But you photo did the best one could do with these, regarding the colours and the composition.:-)

  6. ah, I agree - haystacks look better out of the plastic. Love the contrast though, of the plastic-wrapped hay with the beautiful scenery in the background.

  8. Hay is often wrapped in plastic these days. I guess it saves having to store it in a shed. This was the first time I've had a chance to take a photo of them with a decent view.

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."
