25. Lookouts

So many lookouts, so many awesome views but this one in the Flinders Ranges remains etched in my memory.


  1. Oh, good golly, yes. The colours and your set-up are wonderful, what with the long and winding road teamed with the distant mountains. Love this.

  2. This is sooo beautiful.
    It's as close to perfect as you can get.

  3. Yep that's the same view as in Hans Heysen's paintings. Wonderful.

  4. I was blown away by this view in real life - the colours and dotted desert vegetation. The colours reminded me more of a Namatjura than a Heysen whose colours seemed more muted. It was also very much reminded of aboriginal dot paintings.

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.

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.
