Tranquility 3 of 3

The early morning is so gorgeous by the water. Come on let's head down to the beach.


  1. Yes, as Martina said of the previous photograph, landscape like this is not that usually connected with Australia.

    I think the relaxing is working, judging from the images you have been able to craft.

    Early mornings are good ... repeat after me ...

  2. The light is really beautiful!

  3. Wonderful yet again. However I haven't gotten up so early on a weekend for awhile!

  4. The early morning is lovely but the real reason I see it at the beach is because I am camping. By the time I've woken up enough to trudge over to the amenities I'm awake and have seen how nice it is.

    At home there is no risk of this. I look bleary eyed out at the dawn and head back to my warm bed.

  5. I really like these tranquility photos - they make me feel like I'm on a relaxing vacation by a lake.

  6. The still water surface is amazing on both this and the previous shot. Beautiful images!

  7. All three "tranquil" shots are superb

Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me.

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.

Larras Lee

We passed through Bakers Swamp without noticing anything.  Then reached our last dot on the map for this trip - Larras Lee and saw this.  The roadside monument says: In Memory of  WILLIAM LEE  (1794 - 1870)  of "Larras Lake"  a pioneer of the sheep  and cattle industry  and first member for  Roxburgh under responsible  government (1856 - 1859).  This stone was erected  by his descendants.  --- 1938 --- This is a repost from a few days ago. Thinking I would use this for this week’s Taphophile Tragics post I dug a little further into William Lee’s story, it’s a very colonial Australian one. William was born of convict parents, living his childhood years around the Sydney region. In his early 20s he was issued with some government cattle, recommended as a suitable settler and granted 134 acres at Kelso near Bathurst. He was one of the first in the area and did well. A few years later he was granted a ram and an increase in his land to 300 acres. William developed a r
