Palm fringe


It's a cliche but oh so warm and lovely.

[Sorry about all the misposts this afternoon.  I have been messing up the advance scheduling dates]

    1. We didn't go for a swim. Not once. I'm happy to just look at it.

  2. Clichés are clichés for a reason ... but that sure doesn't make it a BAD thing!!!

    1. I agree they are cliches because their are so uplifting that people want to photograph them. This shot if super cliche because of the sun burst in the corner ... and I think that was an accident rather than my photographic skills.

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."
