And of course - just a few photographs of my favourite things ..... tree trunks and marks (plus some bird and plant photographs along the way).
I took many photos of the calligraphy tree - can see an artist's book coming from it, and the photographs of the tree bark at the end of this post, which I still need to identify. I was enthralled with its patterns and took dozens of images.
At the end of each day's travel and camp I was too tired to keep a diary so I am very thankful for the camera which will always prompt memories. Extra thankful to the new technology of GPS in cameras which allows us to see where each photograph was taken - at least my latest little Lumix does, not my Canon. After each trip we take I come home visually saturated and it takes a while for that to settle down while the creative juices kick in. At the moment, though it was a wonderful trip, I am feeling travel weary and doubt that we will do any for a while to come. Luckily it is so very beautiful where we live, there is no need to do more than open one's eyes in the morning to be inspired.
