we took the train up to the Blue Mountains for a bushwalk
such a magic day
Cathy and Old Man Crow investigating a mysterious pool
old sandstone stairs to Dante’s Glen
a reconnoiter for the dream
a fabulous Angophora costata
this magic rainbow arched right over the train on the way home
blessing the dream of moving up to the mountains in the not too faraway
the Full Moon in Sagittarus the Wayfinder
Sagittarius from the Zodiac Series Mo 1999
Magic Days!

    Beautiful! And how fantastic to see that plank bridge at Dante’s Glen. Health and Safety might have a fit, but I think it’s just perfect.
    Thank you, Mo
    (Going to Artspace this morning)

      I love all the old walking tracks in the Blue Mountains, there was a sign saying to be careful and we were as there had been a bit of rain and it was slippery and a bit wobbly! Look forward to seeing your take on the Libris Awards, am chuffed the Book of Honesty got in but would have been even better to win!

    Ah! so beautiful Mo. thanks for taking us on the walk with you. Our planet is the most wondrous place.The light was amazing in your photos. Is it always…..where you are?

      (((Chrtistina))) the air is so clear & crisp up in the Blue Mountains, here in the inner city it can get a bit hazy with pollution on bad air days but mostly it’s shiny days!

  4. Ah–the dream of moving to those blue mountains blessed by a rainbow means it must be so!

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Michelle))) the area I love in the Blue Mountains from Katoomba to Blackheath is just 2 hours from the centre of the city by train with affordable rent for pretty Victorian era cottages with good heating in small communities on the ridges in the National Park, there’s a thriving art and music scene and miles of fabulous bushwalking tracks with the most spectacular vistas, if I can just work out how to keep my hands & feet from going blue with the cold we will move there when I am eligible for the Age Pension in 2021!

    Looks like the angophora has her arms filled!

    A wondrous study in blues …

    Such a place of peace and solace Mo – so very good for the soul…

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Fiona))) I am embracing the idea of cold as brisk and invigorating, will buy some thermal underwear for our next excursion up to the mountains in mid winter and am keeping a chart of how cold it gets up there, haven’t lived in a cold climate since working in Falls Creek in the 70’s!

    MC – don’t you just love the way nature futures us; and sends us home refreshed. Loved seeing your double rainbow – we had one just a couple of days ago – very auspicious and special. B
