West of Mt Bryan
Salvation Jane (purple) and canola (yellow) and wheat fields (deep green)
The title of this blog came from something Peter said as we arrived at Mount Bryan to stay for a few nights with his parents, Jim and Rosemary.
The Mount Byran valley was truely gorgeous with its Spring-time colours in full force. In October, the Canola is in flower and the contrast between the blue of the sky and the yellow of the canola can be an assault to the eye!! The wheat also looked stunning in a glistening shade of blue-green .
The boys were doing their sheep shearing stuff so took a morning off to capture some of this beauty. To be honest, Peter had challenged me to get a "weather photo" suitable for submission to Channel 2 news, but I am not sure I made it. Perhaps a new camera is in order....
Most of these shots were taken West of the Quinn farmhouse, no more than 5 km away. I also headed south and east down Donara Road. It was good to see some of our tree plantings really taking off now and providing food and shelter for many birds.
