This summer 9 of 10

Near Wattle Flat

I think they may have switched to email.


  1. I think they may have ... I'm sure e-email would be a lot quicker out at Wattle Flat.

  2. Very nice series, and some great letterboxes, too, Joan.

  3. This is a beautiful photograph. The muted colors and textures are very striking.

  4. Yes, the spider web is a bit of a clue, I'd reckon. Although email at WF would be what I got 'throttled' to during this week past, and I would not wish that upon anyone.

  5. I think you are correct, not much action out there..

  6. A very relaxing way of communication, ;-)

    The day before yesterday I showed your blog to the guy I was talking about who came back from a vacation in Australia on Wednesday. He literally shouted: WOW, that's exactly how it looks like over there!!! Great!

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."
