BIRD PHOTOGRAPHY WEEKLY is one post down.

Early morning fog on the river in Jamieson,
nestled in an alpine valley in the Victorian Temporate
Rain Forests. A 1,000+km drive from South Australia,
the driest state on the driest Continent.
We love to make an overnight stay here on our
way to the high country, to refresh our spirits with
greenery and flowing water.
We stay a night, or two if time allows, in a charming
cabin right on the riverbank.
At home all is dry and sere, and here the meadow
blooms above our knees.
The trees sprout leaves with gay abandon and
grow lush and strong and tall.
Here they grow more in a year than our coddled
ones in ten!
Burbling rapids sooth the soul and give good sport
for trout fishing.
Mr. & Mrs.Black Duck, Anas superciliosa
brood of eight. One, more adventurous than the rest,
In the little township on the rise, the newly restored
Community Hall with brand new picket fence.
A house amongst the roses of someone having made
a tree change. We too were tempted to move to
this lush, but sleepy hollow,
boasting, apart from a general store, a school and
a petrol station, this charming Cafe.
Next week, God willing, I'll take you deeper into
the Temperate Rain Forest.
