Lovely shot. Lot's of earthy colors


Comment by Ken R on 5th January 2013 at 00:07
Looks cold and bleak. What were those words to the Dugie song? Good winter shot.


Comment by Lizzie down under on 5th January 2013 at 01:48
Another beauty arrow, Thankyou in advance... :-)


Comment by BREN on 5th January 2013 at 08:30
It's really bad down that area at the moment, WELLIES NEEDED. Good picture arrow ... did you have your wellies on ????


Comment by Kenee on 5th January 2013 at 10:15
I don't think it looks cold or bleak.
If the photo was taken recently the weather has been unseasonably mild.


Comment by Jean D Melbourne on 5th January 2013 at 14:43
To Lizzie Down under. It isnt a competition between states on who gets the hottest days. I agree with A Fairclough. Im sure the people in Tasmania would not agree with you as they had their hottest day and many are homeless as a result of Bush Fires. A silly comment. Days of 40 or over are atrocious and dangerous.


Comment by arrow on 5th January 2013 at 16:04
Thanks. I took this photo on the 1st of December 2012. It was quite cold but not freezing. The mud almost came over the top of my walking boots. Wellies are definitely need at the moment, Bren.


Comment by Lizzie down under on 5th January 2013 at 18:33
Point taken Jean....I should not have made light of very hot days they are very frightening for us all....
I have been seeing the tragedy of Tasmania happening on the tv and it is just takes me back to the Adelaide Hills fires of Ash Wednesday......
Australia is a beautiful country but the cruelty of these fires and the heartache they bring I will never understand.
Please accept my most humble appologies..
Lizzie.


Comment by Margaret Wall on 5th January 2013 at 21:57
Lizzie, I'm sure most people were not offended by your comments but even if they were, who couldn't accept such a humble and genuine apology?!
Personally I detest very hot weather. Give me England, warts and all, anytime!

Lighten up a little jean I`m sure lizzie didnt mean any disrespect at all!


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 5th January 2013 at 22:11
All lovely pics so far this year but can we have some nice bright colourful ones.(just to cheer us up from this gloomy weather we are having ?)


Comment by tricia on 5th January 2013 at 22:20
I think you were a little harsh, Jean.
Lizzie's remarks were not offensive.Maybe you read more into them than was intended. It is easy to misunderstand a sentiment in the written word.


Comment by dave on 5th January 2013 at 23:23
good one Lizzie


Comment by Jean D Melbourne on 6th January 2013 at 01:25
To Lizzie Down Under Apologies accepted. To Tricia as my grandsons are in Tasmania I have concerns for their welfare. The fires in Kinglake 3 years ago had the wind not changed direction my son would have lost his home. As I live on the edge of bushland Fires are a real threat. That is the point I was making not being harsh on Lizzie. Just making people more aware of the danger, let alone the damage caused to gardens after your hard work they just get frazzled.


Comment by Lizzie down under on 6th January 2013 at 02:19
Thanks all xx


Comment by Jean Melbourne on 6th January 2013 at 02:28
Apologies to Arrow for getting off the subject your photo of the Douglas is a lovely shot. It certainly is not bleak you have captured a sunny day with the Douglas flowing. Well Done


Comment by Lizzie down under on 6th January 2013 at 10:51
Jean I am a grandma also.....
I will have positive thoughts for you and your family.....Lizzie x


Comment by tricia on 6th January 2013 at 13:23
Jean
You do not need to make me aware.. I am awaiting news of my cousin in Tasmania... also my other cousin in Brisbane as I do not know exactly where the fires are on the Mainland.
Also where I live we had devastating fires here last year and the wind kept changing direction . Several times we could see the flames heading our way over the mountain tops.. quite scarey.
Later in the year we had terrible storms and floods in which people lost their lives and lots of roads including Motorways are still not open or repaired,, having been washed away. Just North of here most of the farm animals drowned . along with some family pets... ours were safe , thank Heavens...I do sympathise with you and hope your family are safe but I am sure that Lizzie meant no harm and it seemed to me that it was the wrong thing to say to someone who is well known to us on a public forum.
Kind Regards and best wishes for the New Year....
PS let us all know if your family are safe x
