My landscape inspiration

This is not about words but images; the landscape that surrounds me and provides daily inspiration and wonder.

I live in the Upper Hunter valley, 45kms from the nearest town, so it’s not exactly the outback, though my telecommunications issues would lead one to to imagine that we are quite remote.

From my front garden, I can see no one, no houses or people and I am surprised when I hear a vehicle on the road. The only sounds are crickets, frogs, and the choralling birds.The skies constantly change from tossed fleeces to wispy mares tails and the Liverpool Ranges fade from green to violet as the sun sets.
