Out


We burst out of the forest and back in the farmland.

By the way there is a waterfall but I was told the walk is steep. Having seen enough waterfalls and done enough steep walks in the Blue Mountains we didn't bother.

  1. Wow i have just flicked through many of your last posts which I have missed. This is a beautiful area and the views spectacular. The black poles are creative and how similar to my white poles that was a coincidence. I seem to have lost the plot but where are these shots from?

  2. Probably a subliminal recollection of your white poles made me title the post that.

    The current trip is at Coolah and the sequence photos just finished at Coolah Tops National Park.

    Coolah is not far from anywhere, just 100 kms from Mudgee and midway between there and Coonabarabran. It is on good road but not on any of the main highways so the kind of place you miss unless trying different routes.

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.
Musing:
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."
