Two springs ago, we drove to The Flinders Ranges
fields of canola were flowering gold
trees on the way were coming into leaf
we stopped to walk the old mine site and
pick up lumps of copper carbonate
at the side of this road
it once was an open cut mine but eventually
the water level rose and
it had to be abandoned
the colour of the water is amazing but it was hard
to get photos through a six foot mesh fence
if you enlarge this shot, you can see the bird at the water's edge
and onward to the folded ancient hills of the Flinders Ranges.
With gratitude to Klaus who started this meme as MY WORLD
which, after his passing was renamed to OUR WORLD
and continues in his memory.
