Old Photo's

I came across a few old photographs of one of the properties I used to live on in the New England Region of NSW. I had forgotten how dry it was, although after the rains things did improve. I have my current wip (a suspense with romantic elements) set in and around this property and further out in the Outback The area is breathtaking. In fact we are planning to go out there after August for a visit. I can't wait.

This photograph I will never forget. It is a favourite.
The Toothless Windmill is an icon for the property that I have called Grace Creek in my current wip.

Always a lovely sight. Sunflower Crop.

This wheat crop was a bumper of a crop. Yah!

Two of the horses, one which I rode all over the place. Oh okay, I suppose I should tell you that it was named after me. lol... Suzannah. The one on the left. Good looking horse don't you agree. :) :)

This is one of the damns on the lower side of the property. A little dry and muddy. eck!!

This last photograph (one of my favourites) of the mist that used to sink heavy over the property in the early hours of the morning. It is such a beautiful sight. I have used this one as a backdrop for a new website at a later date.

I also have some photographs of the creek area which I intend to post at a later date. It was an awesome property. Still is. :) Don't you just love old photographs, I do. I have a camphor chest full of them and also that many on disc and memory keys.

Thanks for sharing the photos. I really like the one of the river and of the sunflowers. Oh, and the horse is very good looking :)

Awesome photographs, Suzanne. I can't wait to read this one. Just finished Heat in the Outback and I loved---loved it. It's a keeper for sure, it'll be on my book shelf for good.

Hellooo Suzanne,
Great last novel, great photos, The property looks intriguing, and yet, so far out and desolute. Wondering what your characters get up to. You said earlier suspense.

This one I feel is the winner above all. Call me physic or whatever it's just a feeling.

All the best on your road travelled.
