Visual delights


I saw this photo out of the corner of my eye as we were setting up the van.  I couldn't wait to get my camera out.  This lake is pretty isn't it.

Happy New Year everyone.  I hope for each of you it is it a wonderful, happy one filled with visual delights for you to photograph and enjoy.  Thanks so much to for the way you have shared your eye on the world, I look forward to following your stories throughout 2012.   Here is my blog plan for 2012.

  1. So, I gather this is Wallaga Lake. I have a photo of an old red car crossing that picturesque white wooden one-lane bridge. It is a lovely area, but I have not stayed there but in Bermagui itself.

  2. I can understand why your were itching to capture this shot - it has it all - backdrop - height - reflections and that wonderful splash of red on the boat. Delightful!

Coolibah?

Is that a Coolibah tree beside the abandoned house? Every Australian knows about Coolibah trees because the bush ballad Waltzing Matilda is nigh on our unoffical national anthem but most of us live nowhere near the inland where they grow. Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong, Under the shade of a Coolibah tree, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me. 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.

But then the grey clouds gather

Mostly there was sunshine but sometimes rain. The long drought is still too close a memory for us to not welcome rain even on holiday. We are still at Shellharbour here, you can see the steelworks at Port Kembla in the distance. Musing: From The Storm by Theodore Roethke "Along the sea-wall, a steady sloshing of the swell, The waves not yet high, but even, Coming closer and closer upon each other; A fine fume of rain driving in from the sea, Riddling the sand, like a wide spray of buckshot, The wind from the sea and the wind from the mountain contending, Flicking the foam from the whitecaps straight upward into the darkness."
