Autumn in the Snowy Mountains (Australian Alps)

Autumn in the Snowy Mountains (Australian Alps)

January 2019 Previously published March 2018- This beautiful part of Australia is on fire at this very moment. Horrendous hot fires nothing like anything before. If we don’t act now on the Climate Emergency so much of the nature we love will be lost

The still winds

The warm last days of summer

Moving into Autumn

Called me to the Mountains

The Snowy Mountains

Natures call

The primal call to be in the wild

In an ancient land

 

A land of Snowgums and Stringybarks

Sacred to the indigenous people of the land

The land of the Man From Snowy River

A land of

Spirits

Ghosts and

Legends

In the bare

Wild nature

The sky smiling

As angels travel

In the beauty of nature

Simple

Free

Alive

In the Snowy Mountains

As summer ends
