A landscape or the result of landscaping?

Many South West Victorian farms have

changed their landscape from one

which grazed sheep and cattle to one

which grows trees and is far less intensive.

A little over 100 years ago this idyllic

French landscape would have appeared

anything but idyllic as Villers Bretonneux

was in the middle of some of the

heaviest fighting of World War I.

As the sun goes down…

…near Geelong.

Nestled in the mountains at the southern end

of Australian’s Great Dividing Range…

…is the small township of Halls Gap.

It is surrounded by mountains known as

The Grampians.

 

 

There are also several walking trails/tracks

one of which lead up to a peak like this one. 

Forty plus years ago, I found it an easy walk.

Today, I would not be so adventurous as knees,

hips and ankles are not as young as they once were.

There is also an abundance of wildlife in, and around Halls Gap.

An artist friend of ours has this view from his studio

and often posts images of his kookaburras and kangaroos

grazing on the edges of a small wetland.
