Vast – no picture

Vastness
How do you capture it
In a picture
With a camera.

Riding along
To the east the Great Dividing Range
Stretching the length of eastern Australia
South to north

To the west
Rolling pastures
Turn to desert
To mines

To Pasture

To coast again
The vastness of Australia.

I sailed once
On the Tasman Sea
And the powerful vastness of the sea was awe inspiring

So vastness can’t be captured
And that is its beauty.

Back on the road again, I’m now in Mundubbera on the last day of June.  A near full moon has risen on a mild evening in the Queensland sub tropics.
