Beautiful countryside scene. Love the vast field or land.
Was lovely driving through there that time of the year.
Love the field of oil seed rape! against the pale blue sky.
Natures colours are splendid Rosemary, the paddocks are rather large with crops planted in the ground.
aww...some very lovely shots.
Sure is different in topography and vegetation from the Nullarbor but we Aussies love it all the same. No room for bloody "Kilroys" in our country."On the Road to Clare" and all those lovely wines in the vineyards - won't Monica, El Caning Cordobes and Co. go green with envy?? (Sorry Monica, ha ha)Still that precious water pipe is prominent, but what about the glorious rolling green hills, the good old stringy bark gums and fields of - what certainly looks like - fantastic canola crops!I trust a blog if you stayed in Clare???? That town really has everything for the locals ( town and rural) and the thousands of tourists who flock there.Great photos and if appears you got terrific weather in this region from the look of the skies.Well done.CheersColinPS: On the accompanying map - I think TEROWIE was the US WW2 training area for the marines/army in 1942/43. The old barracks etc. still are Australian military property and training grounds for the Australian "Armoured Tank"(Cavalry) Divisions. There are signs clearly on the roadside pointing out the historical aspects of the area.
Very different from the Nullarbor Colin.We didn't go in the back waters of Clare to see the vineyards. Saw a few from the highway though.Yes, we stayed in Clare overnight, the Caravan Park was out of town.Water pipe with hopefully water in it, I suppose it was carrying water and nothing else :)
Damn: "if appears" - should be "it appears".Re: TEROWIE and 1942/43. I may have the wrong actual local town, but the old assembly and training camp was in that area. Maybe - as a couple of "Crow Eaters" follow this blog, they may be able to pin-point the area.CheersColin ( formerly a wonderful "Cockroach" and now branded a "Cane Toad")
Margaret your landscape is really interesting. What kinds of trees are located next to the road?
Those trees are gumtrees Gosia. We do have many varieties.
Wow. Much greener than I remember it. Or misremember it. It has been a loooooong time since I was down that way.
I suppose in summer it's not as green, being winter it was lovely to see the grass growing plus the crops.
Very scenic, Very enjoyable, thank you
You are welcome.
What pretty, pastoral pictures.
It is pretty.
Eine schöne grüne Landschaft.GrußNoke
Really appreciated seeing the 'green' after where we had travelled.
The first and last shots are absolutely beautiful! Gorgeous.
Thanks Bill.Not always when I see a nice photos shot can we stop and take it, as I'm sure you know when you drive about.
It looks wonderfully green. It must have been a change from your earlier travelling views.
Very different Andrew from the arid land that we travelled from, great to see 'green' again.
Nice, just looked at the pictures, too tired today to read anything
Not much to read here Jo-Anne. Photos today :)
More glorious photos...I particularly like the gum tree lined road one. Beautiful...
We came across a few places with the gumtrees like that, it's really Australian :)
Nice to see more colour in the landscape now. Lovely to see the water pipe too. There should be more of them, criss-crossing the country, from wet areas to dry.Love the big gums lining the highway.
Would certainly help many towns if they had more water. There is just something beautiful driving along the highway with gumtrees either side.
Certainly different to what we have seen Andy.
'Tis lovely to see the rural aspect of our my country looking so lovely.
Love the Spring contrast of the rolling hills of yellow canola and the green wheat crops.
Always looks good to see crops healthy.
The first photo is best viewed at full size bypassing light room. It truly is a beautiful scene.
Lovely scene of the country side
a great place! and beautiful color !
'Tis pretty the country side.
