The Scenery Forever Changing

I do concentrate on the road, but can’t help watching the scenery as it passes.  After the mountainous route to Toowoomba, one comes down the other side of the range and it is all flat – though with every changing landscape.  Sometimes there are many acres of crops, and then miles of bushland, with occasional gates or roads to properties.  Many of them have fancy signs with the name of their properties.

Along the road are the carcases of mainly kangaroos or wallabies, which is so sad.  Some have clearly been very recently killed as their red blood is spilled over the road and the red crushed flesh is visible for all to see.  So sad to me.

The cotton has all been harvested, and the land is being prepared for the seeding of the next crop.

There are old, run down buildings and sheds everywhere too, though plenty of modern homes including a lot of demountable homes now.

I love the colours – especially the brilliant yellow of the canola in flower.  There are some properties with cattle, but mostly it is cropping or just bush.  I saw quite a few kangaroos helping themselves to the remains of the cotton crop, and even saw one emu.

There were many dead ‘roos along the road, and two black pigs – no doubt there are wild pigs in many areas.

The roads are good, though in some areas there are repairs in progress, which enables me the opportunity of taking a few photos – which is how I managed to get the photos of the canola.  It is an amazing sight to see the canola in flower.  Spectacular really.  I was so pleased to have to stop!!!

It is frustrating to see great photography shots, but have to drive on as there’s nowhere to stop.
