Gundagai


We decided to stay a couple of nights at a favourite campsite by the Murumbidgee River and nestled between the wonderful old wooden bridges at Gundagai.

I am hopeless at taking iPhone photos, that's my finger in the shot.

  1. Apart from the finger it is a good shot. Those old bridges full of texture and interest.

    1. And at Gundagai this are such a big length of them and two .. one for the rail and one for the road.

  2. The way I scrolled the page your finger didn't show, so I was wondering what you were talking about.
    You can crop quite easily on your phone before posting.
    With or without the finger it is a fantastic shot of the bridge.

    1. Oh yes I could have cropped but that would have cut the bridge off a bit and the finger was more fun :-)

  3. The Gundagai bridge must have been so impressive in its time. It is a pity it is now not being maintained.

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."
