Getting There

It’s half the fun – according to the cliché. That’s especially true if you own an MX5. I’m always looking for an excuse to drive it long distances.

I had the option of flying, but decided to drive. These things are meant to be driven, after all, and I may not get the chance again any time soon.

The route took me down the New England, stopping overnight at Tamworth.

This time of the year, the countryside is showing its autumn colour.

There were wallopers everywhere. I was breathalysed twice, once in Queensland, and once in NSW.

I really don’t mind this at all. It’s worth the slight inconvenience to keep the drunks off the road.

I bought a couple of bottles of wine on the Granite Belt.

 There was a relatively new Vietnam War memorial near Singleton, the location of my old recruit training battalion.

And lots more colour in the country all the way to Gosford.

That last picture is a top shot.

Did you pinch it from my collection?

Didn't nick it, but the shots you took of the trees around Tumut are similar, but a lot better composed. This was Glen Innes. The higher you go, the better the light and the colours.
