Flinders Ranges 9-10

The remnants of shepherd’s huts dot the landscape.


  1. The Flinders Ranges NP is fantastic! I'm always surprised it doesn't appear on Australia's Top 10 National Parks lists!

    Happy Travels!

  2. I especially enjoy the water by the rock wall. Beautiful spot!

  3. Not much to the hut but the fireplace was good.

  4. Thank you for those beautiful pictures of the Flinders Ranges. Many years since we were there so it was great to visit again, through your eyes. The Ranges have such a distinctive fold-like appearance don't they. It's certainly an incredible area and you captured the intense colours. Much appreciated :D

  5. Shepherd is a strange word in this environment ... I want alpine meadows and clanking bells ... and crooks ...

  6. I liked this post then, and I love it now! Thanx for playing!!

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."
