Lake Windemere 2 of 7


  1. Great reflections. Glad to see you back. Where is Lake Windemere other than in England's Lake District

  2. Well these last two shots have certainly made my heart sing .... sitting here in 45*c heat I need all the water pics I can find. Lake Windermere is a real treasure and for captures on the run they are superb.

  3. When I hear the temperatures down south is makes me glad I live in the mountains. We think anything over 30 is hot

  4. Cool and calm. What the local wildlife would give for a slice of that now. Poor birds are zonked out, beaks open, waiting for the cool change expected tomorrow.

    1. We were out that today. It was 38 and I notice the dams are beginning to dry up. I hope you got your cool change. I think ours is still a few days away.

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."
