I spent the next day out at the Uni.  Disappointed because it has quite nice landscaping that may have made for interesting photos but the weather settled in wet.  At the end of day we caught the train to the city and then connected on a late train home where the mountains were turning on a typical misty night.  I thought I'd give a night shot a go ... the clever little camera told me it was taking multiple exposures and combining them to create this moody shot.


  1. Yes, clever camera... but you are the one who decides on the shot. Lovely :D)

  2. Hats off to your camera, Joan. This is an amazing night shot!

  3. That is a clever little camera, not to mention the photographer. :)

    Welcome home!

  4. That's one smart camera. My DSLR isn't so sophisticated, but most of the time I don't mind it.

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."
