20. Forests


Australia is covered in eucalyptus forests but they are not all the same.  The trees have different shapes and sizes, different colours and textures.  These Snow Gums in the mist are typical of high mountain places.

  1. A magic pic. Great composition, colour and texture.

    1. I find the muted greens particularly appealing in this shot. The dampness of the day also helped lift the colour at the same time as contrasting because of the dull sky.

  2. I like the way it draws your eyes over the rocks and beyond. As Diane says, a magic pic.

    Of another world.

    1. For me this type of forest doesn't have much of a fragrance at least not a cold wet day. A warm wet day would be different.

The filmy veil of greenness

We crossed the border into Victoria cruising down a lovely timbered road before breaking into the rich dairy country of Gippsland. It is wonderful to see the land green after more than 10 years of very dry weather. But most of the state of Victoria is still drought declared.

Musing:
The Pasture by Robert Frost
"I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;
I'll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too.

I'm going out to fetch the little calf
That's standing by the mother. It's so young,
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too."

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.
