Living in the Central Uplands of Victoria, this rural environment offers access to many creeklands which alter, live and breathe on a seasonal basis. They may dry out in the heat of summer, but mid-winter sees them refreshed with running water and birdlife. In these quiet places, I love the sound of wind in the reeds, and seeing the bright grasses bent in the current beneath the shining surface of the water. Rivulets and streams are created by sudden rainfall, in ditches and old watercourses, and all around the vegetation springs green and blossoms appear. Birds hunt and sing, stretches of water mirror the sky, and the landscape fills with light.
