Apologies to those expecting a building and also to those that are sick of the sight of Tibrogargon, but this is the last or nearly the last shot I will show of this wondrous edifice, maybe! I just love the way I was able to frame this shot in camera, just by climbing a small hill to peep through the Eucalypts, in a recent post someone mentioned that they are adding to the fire hazard in California in recent years. That is true but they are very strong survivors and they need to feel the fire on their bark to reproduce successfully, which is why they are so wide spread in Australia. Prior to Whiteman's arrival, the Aborigines used fire as both a hunting method which was coupled in their unique land management schemes worked out over the 40-60,000 years of their occupation, and they were assisted in propogating Gum Trees by Mother Nature herself, and who is to say She is wrong, as it would be down right rude to argue with your Mother.
