Bright fall colors are something to look forward to each year. The leaves of this tree seem to be in peak display!
In Wyoming, there are miles and miles of open countryside under an expansive sky. Here, in this quiet minimalistic scene a tiny pond dots the open prairie.
These two warm glowing sunsets might provide some calm during this busy holiday season. Busy at least in the two places where the photos were taken–Australia and the United States.
East Point Reserve Park, Darwin, Australia.
Peters Canyon Regional Park, Orange, California.
These stately limestone stacks off the southeastern coast of Australia are constantly changing due to erosion. In fact, even the number of stacks is changing but the iconic name is not. Today, only eight Apostles remain in this famous cluster, but many more stacks stand along the coastline.
Finding your favorite boab tree while driving in the Australian outback is not easy – there are so many! You cannot possibly stop and examine all of them to decide. However, when we passed this one I said, “STOP! Turn the car around. I have found my favorite boab.”
Sawn Rocks, in New South Wales, Australia, is an example of a volcanic rock formation called “organ-piping”–it’s easy to see why. On our way to see this formation, a mishap occurred and I’ll share with you the following quote from my travel journal: “Sad day. On our way to Mt. Kaputar NP, I accidentally locked the car key in the boot. The car was unlocked, but the inside latch wouldn’t work. We ended up being towed by a guy named Brian to a garage in Murrurrundi owned by a guy named Ashley. It took a full 24 hours to get the key out and we ended up staying across the street from the garage at a trucker hotel instead of Craigton Resort at the NP.”
All was well in the end and I even managed to take this shot on our abbreviated visit to the park. We had schedules to keep!
Delicate but persistent, the tumbling streams wind their way down to the forest floor.
