Photographer's Note

The Monaro region in the south of NSW (near the Snowy Mountains) has suffered severe drought for quite a few years. The drought has been so bad that even hardy eucalypt (gum) trees have been dying as you can see in this photo.
The green pasture in the photo is what is called a green drought - where a burst of rain turns the land temporarily green without breaking the drought.

The landscape is dotted with outcrops of granite boulders. When my children were young we used to call them rock farms and these holidays when we took our grandchildren to the high country we used that term again - they loved the idea.

Better detail in the large version.
