Green the colour of peace


This is a very quick blog to post my recent images. 

On a trip to Tunkallila last weekend, (which is near Deep Creek, South Australia,) we noticed the land had turned from brown to green. A lovely sight. 

Green is not the best colour to photograph but I tried putting white somewhere in my shot for some contrast

The farmers still need loads more rain as the dams seemed quite low. 

One farm we passed had numerous dead carcasses lying in the field, a sad reminder of the drought we experienced this last summer. Very sad to see. 

However there were certainly signs of life everywhere with animals looking healthy once again.

The weather was not good for photography and I did not get any startlingly great shots, but do you know just getting out and away is so life giving, nourishing and peaceful. 

Peace, tranquility, harmony, seem to reside in the green, wide open spaces. The soul is sustained and the eye is pleased!  

The mountains and the hills will burst into song before you. and all the trees in the fields will clap their hands. Large cyprus trees will grow where thorn bushes were. Myrtle trees will grow where weeds were. Isaiah 55.12. 

I bet they are lemon myrtle trees, I knew it, God loves Aussies!!
