Pink Ladies

The smooth lake looks perfect for gliding on with gentle dipping of oars.  I'm into the groove of relaxation now ... the cares of the city and work a past imagining.

But the restless sea is also close by ... we'll go see the action tomorrow.


  1. Love this composition.The canoes are lovely, and their colours a joy. But the stillness of the pier and its reflection MAKE this image.

  2. I agree - fantastic composition! feels like a relaxing day.

  3. Uh, I don't know if I would be comfortable in a pink boat:):)

  4. Emile, it is funny that you should say that. The title of this post was in some ways a salute to Jessica Watson who sailed solo around the world when only 16 years old ... her yacht was pink and named Pink Lady.

  5. Glad to hear that you are having a relaxing time. This view would calm anyone.

  6. This is my new year's resolution! (not really a resolution - but I'm going with it)
    For 4 years now I've been dreaming of owning a canoe/surfski and taking myself off a'paddlin'.
    (vince would like a jet-ski - so we can go together - not quite sure how that is going to work).
    I've never seen pink ones before.
    Wait til I show Vince!

  7. I really love this shot :) actually your whole journey south was great to see.

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."
