Sunday we took a drive to discover some of the outer regions of Kyneton. As you drive north and west of Kyneton you find yourself on the other side of the Great Divide, a mountain range where the temperature is cooler and the land greener. The locals tell us that this side of the range, the winters have been dry and with temperatures this summer in the high 30s, the land is parched. Yet there is a harsh beauty that invites the camera to come into play. Handy to have my iPhone with me.
|As we drove by this area, we must have seen at least 100 kangaroos bounding through the paddocks with their young. A rear treat for us recently displaced city folk.|
|We passed a sign that said Granite Hills and they weren't fibbing. Over a length of about 500 metres, there were these rocky outcrops of granite rising from the earth.|
