After spending 4 delightful hours at Uki Markets we decided on the way home to take the road less travelled, at least by us, as we had not been this way before.
The narrow, windy road gradually rose above the Tweed valley and we were looking down on the Tweed river with the small village of Murwillumbah in the distance. Then we noticed a sign for mangoes on the side of this magnificent gum tree.
We stopped, crossed the road to the honesty box, but look what else we found.I was in photography heaven.
So today when I saw that the WP photography challenge was “variations on a theme” I knew exactly what I was going to show you.
The dilapidated old shed, the huge gnarled and contorted roots we took them from all angles.But look also at the intriguing details. The rusted piece of corrugated iron, the decaying posts covered in moss and lichen, the solid, rusty chain. I don’t think these stock yards have been used for a long time.
These are only a few of the photos we took. There were more delights to come as, with a bag of delicious mangoes spreading their warm, tropical scent through the car we travelled on and wondered what else we would find along the road…
But wait there is more to come in the next post….
