Upper Liffey Falls 2021

It had been snowing for several days during the week, so I went up to the Upper Liffey Falls and Pine Lake to photograph a white wonderland. However, most of the snow had melted. Sometimes we don’t get what we hope for. But in that failure to achieve white, I still found many rich browns and scenes of sombre beauty. Here are a few photos from my day. There is also a 2017 post on Upper Liffey Falls should you want to see more.

Athrotaxis cupressoides. Pencil Pine, proving that it’s frost resistant.

I had intended to do more exploring on the other side of the road, and set out in that direction, but I was wearing brand new overpants, and I needed to wear them for wind protection. However, there is a lot of scoparia over there, and I didn’t think anything I saw could justify the expense of yet another pair of waterproof pants, so turned around and saved myself 160 dollars.

  1. Dear Louise, I remember your hospitality, kindness and good will from my early teenage years. I still walk in the bush often and have a life long fascination with waterfalls. Fortunately, so does my lovely husband of 35 years. I think of you and Bruce often. Kind regards, Jane Rich xxx

    1. Oh Jane!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How amazing and wonderful to hear from you!! I can’t believe it. Do you know, I still have photos of you that my computer regularly shows me … those early fun walks with that super group of you girls that I began. Bruce and I always remembered our Burwood Girls Bushwalkers with enormous joy and pleasure. I photographed all those walks we did, and haven’t thrown any of them out!
      I wonder how you found my blog. Are you in Tassie???
