New England, NSW

Visited the Dorrigo Plateau and New England area of NSW a couple of weeks ago.  The temperature was quite low but still clear days were beautiful.


A little north east of Armidale is a Church built along this road when at the time all the deciduous trees were planted leading to the small old building...




The church appears to have been part of a sheep property in days gone by and is now favoured for weddings I believe.







I found it difficult to photograph because of the dark shade and bright sunlight.....on an overcast day or early early morning I believe would be a more favorable time to take an image of this quaint old church.


Leaving the plateau and heading along a road to Gosford the most beautiful Wilderness areas which due to time constraints did not get to explore fully....Did walk up this pristine creek after traversing a dirt road for some ks......


I had not had a break in years and unfortunately for me was sick and out of sorts with the flu and mentally run down so when feeling better will go and explore this wilderness area in more detail at a later date.

I was waiting in the impending gloom of the evening and unfortunately only had the wide angle lens with me and a lyre bird popped out of the rainforest.  I had never seen one in the wild previously so was thrilled.  Is not a good image but is a start.

I feel like I just went on a walk with you - beautiful pictures. I especially like the one where the sun is peeking through the trees. Thanks and get well soon.

Gorgeousness piled upon more gorgeousness! And what a bonus the lyrebird was - I would've been scrambling about in the undergrowth looking for feathers after that!

I betcha the bottom of your hiking boots are full of all sorts of things after that adventure!

Cheers,

Cindy
