Close up


The next day we headed up towards the Bunya Mountains to visit friends and at last I found and easily accessed field to grab a close up of the milo.

  1. Beautiful. I love this on so many levels. Shape, texture, lighting.

  2. Thanks Vicki, it was one of rare occasions on this long trip when I could do something photographic rather than just grabbing a snapshot on the run.

  3. Years ago my father grew broom millett for the Federal Broom Co; This seed head reminds me of it.

    1. This is fascinating. Was it the stalk without the seeds that ended up in the broom? What happened to the seeds?

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."
