Fascinating fasciation

In a serendipitous manner I found this example of fasciation while out walking in the Flinders Ranges, with the main task of finding landscape shots.  What makes it truly amazing was that it followed shortly after this wonderful post by my friend Linda on her blog The Task at Hand. The plant is known as onion weed – an imported weed that is taking over the native pastures.  Still, in this instance it was worthy of a second look.

In the twist, weather conditions weren’t favourable for the landscapes I was seeking although the walk was great.

Taking the road less travelled

Here’s a selection of by-roads in the Flinders Ranges, SA.  I’m considering putting together some calendars of my travels, with different themes – this selection being The Road Less Travelled, as homage to the book of the same name.

Any feedback, most appreciated, especially any that you think don’t measure up 🙂

They are numbered one to thirteen from top to bottom.  I’ll be back into the area again shortly and will be adding to my collection but needing to start shortlisting images. 🙂
