We took a trip to Stanthorpe and then into New South Wales last week. I wanted some autumn colour for a change and found it behind the local tourist information office.
I said hello to this lovely old couple and thought how great it was to see them out and enjoying the weather. The track goes for about 4.5 klms.
There’s also a lovely pond and the grey skies added a certain atmosphere to it.
More views, in the bottom one you can still see the couple striding out.
Okay, so I like boulders. These are in the Bald Rock National Park and they show quite well that a rolling stone gathers no moss.
On the way out from the Boonoo Boonoo national park I spotted this termite mound. It’s about 7 feet high and looks okay as an oil painting.
No spraying water here, it was raining. We stopped at a lavender farm and while waiting for my coffee I nipped outside and snapped this.
Sometimes a flower looks better as art, especially with a little embossing.
This statue commemorating the Vietnam war is situated in Anzac Park, Brisbane. It was posed like this to show a soldier guiding a chopper down to pick up his wounded mate. So what better way to show it than from above. I gave it a newspaper photo effect, I think it adds to the drama.
Finally a negative view of a forest track. it reminds me of how filmmakers show the alien’s eye view of their surroundings. Even in normal view the track didn’t look inviting.
That’s it for this week, nothing dramatic or outstanding just another week at the Writer’s Room.
