Sunrise from Mount Barker Summit

Artist's Description

This was the most amazing sunrise I have ever witnessed. The fog was incredibly thick and lasted for hours. Taken 05-03-2006.

11-4-10 – One of my favorite photographs & one of my favorite songs. It seems appropriate that they go together, particularly with the Mt Barker Council’s plans to ‘upgrade’ Mt Barker Summit:

John Denver – Boy from the Country:

Because he called the forest brother
Because he called the earth his mother
They drove him out into the rain
Some people even said the boy from the country was insane

Because he spoke with fish in the creek
He tried to tell us that the animals could speak
Who knows, perhaps they do
How do you know they dont
Just because theyve never spoken to you

Boy from the country, he left his home when he was young
Boy from the country, he loves the sun

He tried to tell us that we should love the land
We turned our heads and laughed
And we did not understand
Sometimes I think that the boy from the country
Is the only one who sees
Because the boy from the country
Doesnt want to see the forest for the trees

Boy from the country, he left his home when he was young
Boy from the country, he loves the sun

Words and music by Michael Murphy
