Please post your Winter weather images.

Cold afternoon, soft light. Ruin at Munga Heights, SE of Lake George NSW.

Range upon range, the Great Dividing Range, Victoria.



... and remembering that old Norwegian saying, there is no such thing as cold weather, just inappropriate clothing. Too true.

EddyG, thank you Mate. Several seasons have passed since my last real postings.

Where I'm, Winter can be both not nice and then at the same time, beautiful.

Sunday 10th June'18. Finally, there was rain or more correctly, there was some drizzling. The first fall, in quite some time.
The wet road. Emmaville, South of Yass, NSW.




Cold rain. Tuesday 12th June. Looking towards the Blue Range, above the cloud filled Yass Valley, NSW.

A couple of sunset shots on the Kolan River on Sunday evening. The fishing was as good as the sunset.

A few more shots.

Lake Hume at Bowna Reserve, NSW, looking towards Tabletop Mountain. Friday 22nd June at 4.00pm. It was about 11 or 12.0C ... and not a breath of wind. A beautiful Winter's day.




The Buffalo Ranges, from the Dederang Valley, Victoria, at twilight. 23rd June. The air was very cold.




Still foggy at midday. The Indigo Valley, Victoria. 24th June.




Late afternoon in a smokey Yass Valley. 24th June. It was 2.0C.

Driving to the opening of John Dawes' (from Clarke and Dawes) exhibition of photographs showing at the Bungendore Woodworks Gallery, I took the back road from Collector to Bungendore. I hadn't driven these roads before. I was amazed at the large numbers of tormented, twisted and broken ancient looking Snow Gums beside Collector Road.

I waited until I got to a more sheltered spot on the Tarago-Bungendore road to photograph the prevailing wind. In the open I doubt I could have held the camera steady, the wind was brutal.

Less tormented Snow Gums on the Great Dividing Range in the headwaters of the Mullwaree River, west of Lake George, NSW.



Mid afternoon on the 30th June the wind was 20kts gusting to 30kts. The temp was 9.1C and the App Temp 0.1C. From Braidwood's reading at 3.30pm, which feels right. A return visit to the area to photograph the twisted old trees in the wind, will happen.

Sincere apologies to Bryan Dawe for claiming that dude John Dawes is an artist. John is always claiming Bryan's art cred' .... I've been watching too many World Cup games, live.

Ron, Ha Ha! ... I know very little and not enough to pass-on to anyone.

In my garden today the ground slope, the foliage and structures caused an unusual 'land effect' to the wind ... but then so does everything else, everywhere else.

The 'land effect' today, caused the wind to only blow on the right side of the Acacia. A small weather event.

Great pictures WW and Eddy.

Here's a quiet spot by the Lane Cove River around 3:00PM this afternoon:



A postcard Sydney Winter's day one that the wind has eased, clear skies, calm, still feeling a bit chilly out of the sun - probably around 16.

Eddy and Steve, thank you. I'm glad that you like the shots and it isn't hard to be envious of your warmer winter weathers and good selection of images.

The harsh reality of a Southern Tablelands' rural environment, on the 10th July.

Minus 9 at minus 6(C). Alternative title, 'A Small Sun'. This small sun didn't warm these nine luckless ferals at Lucky Pass on the Great Dividing Range, NSW. It didn't warm me either.





Brutalised White Sallees aka Snow Gums. Alternative title, 'A Big Sun'. 10 klicks SE of the Cullarin Range, NSW. The Cullarin Range is the windiest place in New South Wales and at this time of year, it's not far off being NSW's Chill Factor Capital.




I imagine train spotting is difficult on foggy days. It is best not to have one's ear to the ground when the temp is well below freezing and the visibility somewhat limited. Level crossing at Komungla, NSW.




Still foggy on the Great Dividing Range near Tirrannaville, NSW. Large Mountain Ashe, Blakely's Red Gum and Inland Scribbly Bark rule here.




Another wind brutalized tree on a high plateau of the Great Dividing Range, North of Goulburn, NSW.




Cloud shadow on the Cockbundoon Range, NSW.

Homer, thank you.

The cloud shadow in my above post, is on the Cookbundoon Range and not on the Cockbundoon Range. Sorry Forumites about the cock-up.

Two more tree shots.

A wind swept White Sallee above Woolshed Creek, at Strathaird on a high plateau of the Great Dividing Range, NSW.




Winter sun warming a Mountain Ashe. Komungla, NSW.




... and a few structures, showing the ravages of the weather and time. The relatively clear sunny days have given the images clarity but the light still remains cold.

Late afternoon. Woolshed at Chain'o'ponds Creek in the Yass Valley, NSW.




Ruin at Mount Rae, on the Great Dividing Range, NSW.




A cold afternoon with even colder light. Woolshed on the exotically named Wooronbooronbidgee Creek, at Middle Arm, NSW.

Hello Forumites ... it's me again.

I've had enough of this Winter already. Repeatedly waking up to horrid frosts of -8C or worse has given me seasonal affective disorder syndrome, 'Winter Type'. Rarely does the App.Temp. get above zero during the day.

The darling buds of Spring are nowhere to be seen, in my neck-of-the-bush and I'm wondering if they will even happen this year, with so much frost damage. The Wattle is not out, and it is usually blooming-well by now.

Although, some wattle is trying at this homestead on Manton Road, Yass Valley, NSW.




Yesterday, 23rd June, I went looking for the convict cuttings on the original 'Great Southern Road'. The original road, from Sydney to Albury, (now called the Hume Highway), is still a goat track across the Mundoonen Range. The range cuts the Hume Highway between Yass and Goulburn. A remnant of the original 'goat track' as it was described back in the 1820's crosses the Mundoonen Nature Reserve. Most of the original track that I followed yesterday was across farm paddocks, until I reached the ranges. Permission to access properties was given, thankfully. Otherwise it would have needed bush bashing climbing South to Mundoonan Gap from the Hume Highway.

Yesterday the air was very cold. There was not a breath of wind at any time that I noticed ... and the clouds were photogenic all day. The original 'Great Southern Road', is now call the Old Gap Road.




I took 300+ images yesterday mostly of trees, huge flocks of birds and wooden bridges and the 'Road' as it wound through paddocks and sunk into creek crossings. I ran out of camera battery within metres of beautiful old grass trees in the Nature Reserve, this was shocking and affecting, left with no battery power for the convict cuttings. A return visit is a must.

Bloody fantastic stuff once again Wazza, does that freezing weather shorten the battery life noticeably by much?
