Destination.. Lane Poole Reserve.


Take no notice of the shot above it's merely to show that yesterday we were up with the sparrows and on our way to Lane Poole Reserve 100km from Perth. The weather was a bit dodgy but as the sun came up thankfully it cleared and wasn't too bad a day, only had to run for cover once :) Below the country roads are pretty good, here leading into the small country town of Dwellingup..


We stopped for a quick look around and saw in the right hand corner below the Hotham Valley Steam Ranger building up a bit steam, the light was shocking..


Don't ask.. I'm sure there's a story here but it was too early to inquire, it was the acorn in the head that flummoxed me :)


After the rain we've had in the last few weeks the fields were green and lush..


The tarred roads turn to dirt roads as we near our destination.. to be continued :) Happy Monday, take care and stay safe...

    Flummoxed; I've not heard that for a loooong time. More common in Australia than here I'm guessing.

  9. Strong sense of a journey in this sequence. I want to see where it goes.

    We have to get up with the sparrows next Monday morning as we head to our viewing spot for the total eclipse. Everyone says that the traffic to those areas will be horrible.

  18. I sure did pay attention to your first photo, I really like evening photos and the glow of the lights, very nice. I like the old trains but that little statue really is a hit!
