Big sky country 13

In this big flat country storm watching is all about drama. We were hoping to set up camp without rain but that was not to be.


  1. This really looks menacing. This would be the time when I would say: Okaaaay let's see if we can find some cosy hotel room ;-)

  2. Talk about moody ... look at that wee peek between sky and earth ... delightful!

  3. I like the little acid green mounds in the foreground.

  4. Rather threatening when there's hardly any foliage to shelter under.

  5. Martina and Winam, there was no lightening and we were safe and dry in the car ... just a little wet setting up camp but could escape into our warm and dry little van soon after.

    Julie, everything about the light that day delighted me.

    Letty, those little green mounds were why I chose this particular photo from the many I took that day. I like them too.

  6. So beautiful and full of drama!

The filmy veil of greenness

We crossed the border into Victoria cruising down a lovely timbered road before breaking into the rich dairy country of Gippsland. It is wonderful to see the land green after more than 10 years of very dry weather. But most of the state of Victoria is still drought declared.

The Pasture by Robert Frost
"I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;
I'll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too.

I'm going out to fetch the little calf
That's standing by the mother. It's so young,
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too."

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.
