RAIN ON DUST OUTBACK SOUTH AUSTRALIA …

This is a great video that I wanted to share with you …


“Over 7 weeks of travelling up and down the Oodnadatta and Birdsville tracks in remote South Australia I documented rivers and creeks in flood, many that feed into Lake Eyre. Some of this country has not been accessed by anyone but me and I had to make my own track into several areas to be able to film it properly. I damaged my car in the process of 1 trip out. Some of this land has been dry for years and the change after water is just amazing to see. I used my Phantom 4 pro for most of this footage and my mobile phone for 1 small section of footage I took from the ground.”

Bonsai – The Master speaks, Masahiko Kimura …

I have posted previously about my love of bonsai. This man is the best in the world. Hope you enjoy …

“Because of Kimura’s willingness to break with convention, many in Japan refused to take him seriously, at least in the early years. Nowadays, no one disputes Kimura’s genius or his pioneering position in the Bonsai world. The sometimes controversial author and videotape producer has traveled in many countries, doing presentations and demonstrations. He first demonstrated and conducted a workshop outside of Japan at the 1987 Golden State Federation Bonsai Convention in Anaheim, California. Kimura has demonstrated at other major conventions.”

Any lover of bonsai should watch this video. Remember to click the settings wheel and select the best resolution you system will display. Watching full screen is good …

 Hope you enjoyed.

 

If you like pictures of bonsai I have a nice collection on my Pinterest page.

My backyard in Stanthorpe QLD Australia …

Do you like my backyard? Unfortunately the roos were not around.


“Stanthorpe is a town situated in south east QueenslandAustralia. The town lies on the New England Highway near the New South Wales border 223 kilometres (139 mi) from Brisbane via Warwick, 56 kilometres (35 mi) north of Tenterfield and 811 m above sea level. The area surrounding the town is known as the Granite Belt. At the 2011 census, Stanthorpe had a population of 5385.”

Coat of arms Stanthorpe Post Office

“The Post Office with a clock tower and an elaborate coat of arms was constructed in Maryland Street in 1901 in the Arts and Crafts style. Following Federation, the Commonwealth Government took charge of post and telegraphic services. However, they contracted the construction of post offices in Queensland to the Public Works Department of the Queensland Government and the Stanthorpe Post Office is believed to be one of the first ordered by the Commonwealth Government. It was designed by the first Commonwealth Government Architect John Smith Murdoch.”

“The subtropical highland climate was very suitable for growing cool climate fruits and vegetables. Grapes were first planted here in the 1860s with encouragement from the local Catholic parish priest Father Jerome Davadi to produce altar wine. His Italian descent made grape growing and wine production a familiar pastime and the notion caught on in the area. There were plenty of Italian settlers and wine was made for home enjoyment.”

Wine and Italian girls suits Bear very well.
