Sunday Stills the next challenge: The long and winding road


 

This weeks challenge is right up my alley. I love road photos, it always means I am going somewhere!

My first road leads to a very remarkable place, alas paved but one out in the wilderness. It was taken on Kangaroo Island a few weeks ago. The way I am going my upcoming post on Kangaroo Island (South Australia) will feature every photo I have already posted on various challenges. It has such a diverse and wild landscape. There was one road I wished I could have taken but asking the coach/bus to stop in the middle of the road for me to do so was out of the question, my one photo that got away on the island.

BUT we did stop at a lookout to The Remarkables and I found this road interesting in how it pops up between hills on the way down to the rocks themselves. Not as good as the “one that got away” but not so bad either.

Another lovely shaded road was on a trip earlier this year near Uki in the Northern Rivers of New South Wales, Australia

and last but not least a dirt road heading out to the lost world, near Beaudesert, Queensland, Australia

 “The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

  4. Desley described that road perfectly…it shall now be known as the ‘bouncy’ road! I like the look of the road in Uki with it’s welcome shade from the blistering sun; wonder what’s round that corner? Great photos Kaz – you do get around!

    • It seems I do get around but not as much as I would like, sitting here at work on yet again another Monday morning, restless for a weekend already! The lovely shade one is near Uki and is “just around the corner” from The Tweed and I usually go to a wonderful place called Mavis’s kitchen for lunch sometimes on a weekend. Have you ever been there?

      Yes Desley’s description is perfect and I agree any up and down road I taken from now on I think should be described as the bouncy road lol!

      • No, I have never been to Mavis’s Kitchen; where abouts is it exactly? We should meet up there one day for a coffee. I love the Tweed area, contemplating moving to Kingscliffe one day in the not too distant future.

      • Its just out from Murwillumbah heading towards Uki, its a lovey old Queenslander that was moved from Labrador many years ago and has been set up as a restaurant and also accommodation. Its nestled under the shadow of Mt Warning.

        Would love to catch up for a coffee there sometime Barb. If you know you will be down this way give me a shout and we can book it in. Its about 40 minutes from Tweed but a nice drive. 😀

      • It’s a beautiful area down there, and if I am coming down that way, I will definitely give you a shout to arrange something.

  9. What is it about roads disappearing into the distance that captures our fancy so much? For me, it’s imagining i’m on them, following a path on a great adventure, wondering what lies beyond. Wonderful, imagination-capturing photos, Karen!
