My favourite things


It's been ages since our trusty little caravan last took us wayfaring. So I have decided to fill the gap with a series of posts on the themes that seem to recur in my blogs, my favourite things.  The plan was to run with 50 favourite things to the end of the year.  Narrowing the list down to 50 was hard enough, then trying to choose my favourite in each category from the thousands of photos I have taken was a further challenge.  It has taken me so long there are no longer 50 days left in the year!

But we will run the the idea anyway.  Here's what is coming up in alphabetical order.  I hope you enjoy the series.

  1. You must have a steel trap filing system for your photographs. Love the list. I shall try to be devoted ...

    1. I use Aperture which is Apple software. But generally don't do much about labelling photographs with keywords. That's why it took me so long to get this idea started. I had to apply keywords to the likely suspects then after that go thru each keyword and pick the winner.

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."
