Bridge


I love the old bridges with girders that you find all over New South Wales.  That's the Murrumbidgee River we are about to cross.

  1. Somewhere there is a web-site that I have stumbled across, where they detail all these old bridges - and their replacements. DMR ... their heirs & successors ...

    1. I like the bridges but don't want to know that much about them!

  2. I like that kind of landscape - all those hills and dales.

    1. Me too. That's why I like the drive from Clandulla to Mudgee so much. We are always making excuses to do that trip when we are out at the block.

  3. I love old bridges, too. I like how this one leads you deep into the picture.

    1. For me there is a lot to love in this photo. I like the hill as much as the bridge. I agree it is the combo that gives this image its magic.

  4. That's a great looking hill in this photo.
    It's a lovely soft shape with little furry eyebrows.

    1. Furry eyebrows. An interesting analogy. The hilltop reminds me of the style found in Fred Williams paintings.

    1. I was back in Canberra yesterday. The green seems to be fading.

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."
