A week of persistent drizzle sees me using another archive image. We are fortunate to have two small areas of bushland close by; both are remnants of the sclerophyll forests which once covered the area.

Dry sclerophyll forests (and woodlands) typically consist of multi-aged stands of eucalypts and have an understorey dominated by hard leafed shrubs, grasses, sedges or bracken fern.

There is a serene and settled majesty to woodland scenery that enters into the soul and delights and elevates it, and fills it with noble inclinations ~ Washington Irving

So unlike the scenery here, I don't mind at all that this is from your archives. Maybe I should look for some scenery in the archives myself, because I just did not have the time for photography.
Those eucalyptus so remind me of South-Africa.Lovely to have those deep blue skies as a BG - hope the bad weather clears soon. Those rocks seem like an old fortification.

Hi David

Seems to me we are sharing the same weather and indeed I resported to old images for this weeks theme too. I love the textures you have captured here, the smooth weather worn rock faces are amazing. Nicely composed with superb colour saturation... ah well I will just dream of nicer weather for the moment lol.

Thank you for posting
kind regards Helen

Rough, dramatic scenery here.
Lighting is good and the shot is well composed.

Hi David,
I know how you feel about the rain, nice scenery with good colours and details, this could easily be a Tor on Dartmoor.
Well done
Regards Andy

Now that is what I call scenery!
In spite of the high sun you have good contrast and excellent colours and sharpness here and the composition is very attractive.
Super picture David.

Beautiful colours and details - definately the sort of picture designed to draw people to a place.
