#98 Pyramul

Christmas is coming to Pyramul tonight and I've run out of towns!!  I will make a last effort to go west and get two more towns before the New Year.

The eye op went really well yesterday I have gone from being all but totally blind in one eye to having clear vision.  It's still a bit too sensitive to test out as a 'camera eye' but I am sure it will work very fine. 

Now I am over that fuss/stress of the eye there is much to do for Christmas so I am going to take a blog break. I hope you are all having a lovely time preparing for this most special of seasons.

I've will add Pyramul over at 100 towns and tidy up the loose ends over there during the break.


  1. That's great news Joan. Lovely shot with the church on the hill.

  2. Hope you recover soon, Joan. And a happy Christmas to you and Ian.

  3. Wonderful!
    'mazing what a difference a little zapping makes.
    Best wishes for a happy and holy Christmas.

  4. Although I'm not religious I think these humble little churches have much more to do with Christianity than the rich and ornate temples of the Old World, which I admire just as art.

  5. P.S. Glad to know your operation went well, Joan.

  6. What a super aspect, best wishes with the optics. Good to hear you are on the mend.

  7. Ah, that's what happens when you read blog posts in chronological order ... so everything is okay. That's fine.
    Have some nice quiet relaxing days!

  8. That's a beautiful shot. Christmas greetings and all the best for a good recovery from the operation>

  9. Great news. Enjoy your break and Merry Christmas to you.

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."
