If you stop on the other side of the bridge you use the style to climb over the fence and head down to the water.


  1. I know so many people who simply never close gates! No wonder a stile is necessary. The river looks delightful, as does all the lush, green grass.

    1. Silly me. I haven't thought of styles as a way to avoid gates !

  2. I can't remember the last time I saw a style.

    I like the "tiny" people in the bottom photo. It gives real perspective to the image.

    1. They were tiny. Made me realise it was a bit of a walk down to the waterworks we didn't do it. 😀

    2. Waterworks! Crikey typing on mobile phones makes my notoriously bad typing worse. I meant water just plain water.

  3. I associate stiles with walking in the UK - there are so many of them there! Good to see an Aussie version.

    1. I guess that is why I photographed it. Styles are unusual in Oz.

  4. Beautiful setting! I think I've never seen a style here...

  5. Never seen one of these (this type) of style.

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."
