  • Sherbrooke forest
  • Tomorrow is the final day of 366 pictures for 2016, and on the penultimate day of the year I’ve come to Sherbrooke forest in the Dandenong Ranges National Park. I love this place. With its beautiful Fern trees and magnificent Mountain Ash trees, Sherbrooke is a magical place to find within an hours drive from the centre of Melbourne, Australia.

    Standing among the towering Eucalyptus trees that reach some 100 metres and live up to 500 years, the sound of this place is as wonderful and vibrant as the lush green vegetation that envelops you here. Bell birds and the shrieks of cockatiels mix with the hum of insects, while the laughter of kookaburras echoes across the forest.

    Yesterday’s summer storms have left the forest fresh and replenished and the aroma of Eucalyptus is strong. Wandering the trails here can be an entirely immersive experience that draws you in and rewards your attention. It’s a beautiful place to stroll through, but also a place to stand still and just observe, even to close your eyes and breathe in the clean air and listen. Like I say, I love this place.

    1. Tomorrow’s the last day!! Bummer. I know from previous conversations we’ve had what an undertaking this project is for you, but I am sure it’s been deeply enjoyed by many. I know that I was more plugged in during this go around, as this time I had them sent to my email. So, though I only commented a few times, I saw and enjoyed them far more.

      Thanks for the good work!

    2. Hi Simon,

      I always enjoy looking at photos like this. Forest (be it man naturalor man made) is one that completes our landscape approach to devfelopment. This is the kind of place where i have lived and grew to be a community development worker… a nichewhere i could live forever nd ever though at times i still go in the city with friends. But i will always love this kind of place where you can get more and more energy and power from the universe. This kind of nice never runs out of energy to supply for humanities. You made many people of the universe happier with a simple panoramic shot.. classical! Good job.
