The Changing Seasons. July 2018

Ok, it’s July 31. I’ve had enough of this Winter thing now. I know we still have another three months of it to go down here in Victoria.
I have been playing a lot of music lately so my photos have suffered. And I am itching to get out on the water again. Hopefully in a couple of weeks I’m off to Gippsland again.
Also, Jo and I have been slowly emptying rooms here. After living here for 20 years, we are yet to see the light at the end of the tunnel. We’ll get there. Here’s some pics from July. Added for Su’s Changing Seasons which can be found here.

Distance

I am obsessed with distance. There is a view near where I live where I can see a 1500 m mountain; I can see it between a gap in the great divide.

It is 120 km away. Australia is old and flat, mostly. To see this far is unusual. We don’t have any Rockies, Himalayas, Andes, or Swiss Alps. Tasmania is craggy, but it’s highest peak is a little over 1600 m. I have seen further than 120 km over land before (in Aus) but only when I have been standing on mountains looking over to other mountains. It’s 440 m elevation where I live and most mornings I see my mountain. This keeps me in check.
