I teach drums and percussion in five different schools a week and Thursday is Upper Yarra Secondary College day and I love it. Nice kids and staff and afterwards I can go for a little walk before coming home. I took this one a few weeks ago on one of those perfect winters mornings. After teaching two kids from some local primary schools between 8:00 and 9:00am my period one class canceled so I jumped in my car drove ten minutes down the road to this lake near Powelltown walked in took a few pictures and was back in time for my period two class. Life is good.

Later one of the kids at school told me his friends grandpa made the lake over many years. He did it for his own benefit and didn’t even let the authorities know what he was doing, and apparently a number of years passed before they even found out it was there which in some ways is amazing because it is absolutely huge but on the other hand a lot of locals don’t even know it’s there because it isn’t visible from any of the surrounding roads.
Recently a real estate agent bought a stock image of this one for use in his promotion of a house that borders the lake so if you want your own slice of paradise…

Australia’s rugged landscape is an important part of my life and over many years I have explored some of the more remote parts of it on foot, ski, kayak and rope. I usually travel alone so I can take my time capturing the essence of these places without distraction. Life slows down and after a while I feel like I begin to merge with the land, nature takes me into her confidence and changes me. I hope you enjoy the fruit of these excursions.

  • I presume you meant to say ‘work’, unless wor is short for ‘wheely owesome reflection.’ ;-)

    Ironically my teaching room at the school is a windowless, stuffy box with a skylight, aweful but the fringe benefits…
