The Nature of a grey day

After weeks, if not months, of agonising about the future of the Kangaloon Aquifer, and then discovering the horrors being inflicted on the rivers downstream from here, by Longwall Mining, today the Nature of Robertson has stepped in, and said: enough of this madness. Today is a Grey Day. Take the day off.

There is nothing which we paltry humans can do about it - it's grey, grey, grey.

And, in its own way, it is beautiful.

The green relief is provided by the lovely Sassafras trees (Doryphora sassafras).

This is the view from the rear deck of my house - thanks to David Cupitt for its construction.

The view doesn't look to bad, but I bet it will look darn good come summer.

We get lots of fogs in summer, so the view can be very much the same - just warmer.
Clear winters days give the clearest views, but colours are better in summer - the greens are greener (our pasture grasses go yellow in the cold).
I shall post a clear day photo for you tomorrow.
