Bigger mountains


Okay I know I have already mentioned the mountains but I have to say they are getting even nicer.  Queensland's highest mountain Mount Bartel Frere is around here somewhere.

  1. I just had a look at the last 20 photos or so and I find it always amazing how different the landscapes are that show up in your blog. From exotic palm trees and reefs to "oh, that could be here".
    Always interesting.

    1. When I have visited Europe it has mostly been in the cities, I would love to go back one day and see the countryside. For the next few weeks I don't there there will be a lot of "oh, that could be here" scenery for you. In fact, most of it is nothing like even where I live.

  2. I love this shot. The contrast and composition works so well.

    1. Thanks Vicki. This was a shot grabbed through the car window on the run but probably when we were held up at yet another lot of road works because the foreground is not blurred. I was always looking for a chance to get a shot of the mountains and cane fields because I loved them so much.

    1. Climb!! Not for me... if there is not driving track then I don't see the view from the top of mountains.

  4. great photo. I also love your snap shots from the car as you instantly see a scene and snap it.

    1. I find the big mirrors on the new car a nuisance grabbing snapshots on the move. I used to be able to shoot in a forward direction but now I can only shoot straight out the window so have to sort of guess when the image is going to fly by.

  5. I've walked the Mt Bartle Frere trail - for about 50 metres until it got too boggy with wild pig hoof prints everywhere!!! But still ...

    1. Erk. Maybe that will change Peter's (above) plans.

  6. I was amazed at how close the Great Dividing Range gets to the coast the further north you go. We criss crossed over the range quite a lot. It makes for beautiful scenery.
