Beautiful pictures of Australia

From one of our commenters.

Might as well advertise my own verbal commentary on Australiana as well.

And more. The work of the late Kilmeny Niland, a brilliant and versatile artist and illustrator. She painted several different kinds of Australian landscapes in the books she illustrated, notably Clancy of the Overflow and Blossom Possum.

    There’s some great photography there, it looks like the photographer was enjoying himself too.

    Some other nice photos of Australia set to music – Great Southern Land.

    The contact me link on Niland’s web site is unfortunate.

    Thanks for the link to the South Gippsland website. I’ve only ever passed through on my way to Wilson’s Prom a couple of times, but I’ve been doing a bit of research on the Leongatha area, and I have rellies in North Gippsland.
    Am I remembering correctly that Kilmeny was your late wife, Rafe? Such a range of creative talent.

    Aaaah, Home ! Must get back there soon.

    Thanks Muddy, she could write as well, towards the end of her life/career (over at 58) she was writing as well as illustrating the books.
    She was also a very talented self-taught web designer. As you can see from the site she did for me as well as her own.

    Rafe.
    I purchased a copy of your Reason and Imagination a year or two ago, but upon opening it, I felt quite daunted, so put it aside for the day when I’m struck by lightning or suffer serious food poisoning and my cognitive abilities suddenly peak. Part of the reason why I lurk here is to edjahmahkate myself, but sadly I feel less intellectually capable than I did 20 years ago. There must be a slow leak somewhere.

    Oops. I stuffed up my email address by trying to type too fast, so the comment is in the inSINCerator. (Sorry Sinc!).
    Let’s have a go at this again…
