One last shot

Back home I remembered that I had not tried some of the other tricks of the new camera ... taking a panorama and art filters so here we are, a panorama of our sun room in sepia to give it a 1920s feel.  I notice the lens distorts things a little, because that long wall is actually straight.  In a landscape I guess the problem would be less obvious.

That's it for the New Eye tour.


  1. Your tour has been enjoyable. Looks as though you can do many things with your new camera.

  2. Enjoyed your tour very much. The panorama feature worked well :D)

  3. Having fun with new camera. Too much to learn for me. What a beautiful room.

    1. Thanks. It is like a tree house sitting in the canopy of the trees because the house is on a slope so two levels at the back even though it is on ground level at the front.

      This is a modern addition we put on 10 years ago so much more light that the original parts of the house. I was going to say more spacious as well but that is not correct because being a 100 year old home is has big rooms and high ceilings but this part of the home is open plan.

  4. Your sunroom looks like the perfect place to curl up with a book on a sunny winter's afternoon. (I imagine it gets quite hot in summer?)

    1. It is perfect for a winters morning (in fact most of the day because the room is north facing). And no it doesn't get very hot in summer because the sun is higher, the trees have all their leaf and we open the windows to get a cross breeze. And we actually get very few really hot days in the mountains anyway ... probably less than 5 days a year above 30C.

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.

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
