BACK FROM THE COLD

Our workshop in Maldon was a lot of fun. An enthusiastic group, fresh baked cakes and biscuits, brewed coffee, Pub down the road, what more could we ask for – and Julienne arranged for us to stay in the beautiful old miners cottage we enjoyed last time.

After leaving Maldon we headed up into the mountains. After almost an hours wait, a shaft of sunlight finally hit this hill in front of an amazing Indigo sky.

Once above Falls Creek the temperature dropped, fog rolled in and we were surrounded by snow – Unusual for November in Australia.

We intended to ride our bikes to the summit of Mt. Kosciuszko, but when we arrived at Charlottes Pass it was bitterly cold with rain and sleet –  visibility was next to nil, so our plan was put on hold.

The fog and wet weather sure made the snow gums look spectacular.

  1. Thank you, you take great photos no matter where you go. Being in Australia I love it that you take fantastic photos of the most unusual and arbitrary things and make them interesting. I have seen some of our lovely country which is way off the beaten track and these photos bring back all the smells of the bush, the changing skylines, the sounds….. Have a wonderful Xmas and New Year.

  2. Wonderful photos as always John! Any chance of showing what the inside of that special vehicle looks like? What a perfect way to get around, go ANYWHERE, and paint! I’m really enjoying your showing the “ordinary” things on your travels!!

  3. How lovely to share your travels and your art..your photos really are that…with those of us who are little less intrepid these days.
    Merry Christmas from Pittsburgh PA USA
