Looking – to my eye – like a retro ad for earthworks or something similar, I had to turn around after this scene caught my eye, and I had finished internally processing the image, so I could take a photo. A Holden HR panel van is on my pipedream list of cars to own (mainly so I can call it HR Puff’n’stuff, har har, which may not be a very original thought), so finding one in a great industrial site was my catch of the day.
The landscape around Coleraine, in the south-west of Victoria, is some of my best-loved. There is something about the rolling hills, the clumps of trees (remnants, perhaps, of earlier land clearing), the introduced pasture grass, phalaris, that feels so strangely good to me.

It’s usually the first of the summer fruits to ripen, but this season had disruptions and the fruit didn’t ripen on the first or second setting. At least it still had lovely green foliage to soothe the eye in the heat.
