Autumn has arrived!

I welcome the coming of autumn – often cool nights and beautiful warm sunny days.  The coming of autumn also heralds one of my most busy time at work, there is a harvest to bring in (I’m a Vineyard Manager)! My postings will probably become a little sporadic over the coming weeks.  This shot was taken a couple of days ago with an autumnal mist and spectacular sunrise….

Last image from my recent visit to Pyalong.  I’ve enjoyed this series of posts – they are surreal but then so is the landscape.  I’m aware they may be becoming a bit ‘samey’ so something different next time….anyhow, this scene struck me as it was so desolate, dead trees both standing and fallen in a tinder box landscape….

Palace of bales?

Again very time poor (but who isn’t?) so another image from Pyalong taken last week.  When I saw this hay shed, the structure reminded me almost of a Roman villa or palace with columns but stuck in this quite alien landscape of bleached parched land…

House moves and triangular clouds….

I haven’t had the chance for either taking photos or posting due to moving house  and work being really busy- but we all know what that is like… a week in we are getting there (slowly!).  Today I needed to do some ‘soul soothing’ so went out to one of my favourites – Pyalong.  Probably a bit too tired for photos or processing but still good to have camera back in hand with a wonderful sky again.  Here is one from this morning…
