Wood-Smoke & Eucalyptus .........




There is nothing nicer than the smell of wood-smoke and eucalyptus
 wafting on clear morning air in the Australian bush.

With autumnal rains and the greening of the environment
this sight is no longer a threat - but a beauty to be enjoyed.

Ah, so you've had rain. Last I heard (late April / early May) things were dryishly grim.

When I lived in SA I used to marvel at how everything went from sere to emerald green in just a couple of days once the season broke.

And yes, that combination of smoke and bush is always evocative.

The two show nicely in this shot.

most impressive; all that could top that smell might be onions on the barbe'

Karen said...

Lovely phots. I can almost smell that scent!

Pauline said...

That's a sight that's older than time, and as lovely as it ever was.

I was hoping for "smellavision" but alas I'll have to do with your delightful photos.

Top shots Dianne. The smell of smoke makes me nervous at any time.

Joan Elizabeth said...

They are doing burning off around here too. I agree it is nice to have bush smoke without bushfire fear.

I don't know the smell but can imagine the eucalyptus must smell special.

That first whiff of gum leaves burning, ah, sheer joy. I'll be burning soon too, must bring back some gum leaves to perfume my rose prunings.

Beautiful shots, there is nothing greater than the scent of the Australian bush, Eucalypts, Prostanthera and so many more native plants enhance the atmosphere with their unique fragrances.

I love the way you captured that smoke! I wish I could smell it too:)

I"m with Joe Dianne, over here where we don't get all that much rain, the sight of a bushfire is pretty scary at any time. It does make a super photo though.
