The changing colours of the season

It’s nearly harvest – in fact some of the farmers to the north of us, have already started.

Harvest indicates, to me, that summer is here. Long hot days, snakes, flies, strong seas breezes (if we’re lucky!) in the afternoons, the rumbling of trucks and headers at any time of the day or night… and being itchy! Especially if you’re like my sister and I and allergic to grain dust!

It also means the beautiful green that we’ve had has faded to a golden yellow and as we get further into January/February the lovely golden glow fades to a washed out brown.

It’s hard to imagine the coolness of winter and the green paddocks – when you look back at this photo…

…and realize it’s only three months ago it was taken, then look at the one I took last night, you can’t help but marvel at nature!

What are your thoughts on summer?

  1. How beautiful are those pictures. It reminds me of the time I lived on the property on the edge of the outback. Oh yes, the flies is not something one can forget. lol

    Please keep them coming. The photographs are amazing, especially these ones. 🙂

  2. Oh, thoughts on summer.

    Just love it.

    Love the heat radiating to the sky, the orange dust clouds swirling with tans and rusts of Australia. It is, for me, truly the perfect time of the year.

    Okay, okay, it really depends where you live. 🙂
