    Beautiful forest scenery Bette – I haven’t been down that way for far too long! :)george

  • Do you think you are missing something,George? Actually, very much of the beautiful forest was destroyed in 2009. I will never see again some of my favourite places. Anyway,thank you!

    So exotic and so beautiful, Bette. So beautifully composed and the colors are so alive.

  • Exotic to you,Viorica, but as Hans (above) remarks, it is a typical Australian bush scene. Thank you.
