I see that on the other side of the world they are having some very warm temperatures but here in South Australia we are a couple of weeks into Winter. We are having unusually dry conditions but with very cold starts to the day. I take my poodle Rosie for a walk after breakfast, I say walk she doesn't do much of it, mostly it is a sniff a thon. We live on the edge of the Murray river and have a jetty which remains unused as we do not do boating. Rosie has decided though that we need to unlock the gate and walk its length as part of our daily sniff a thon. One quick check and she is satisfied. I took an image on my iphone whilst we were down the bank on the way to the jetty gate and with the feeling of being towered over by the river reeds still fresh in my mind I set to creating this "scape" as soon as our morning ritual was over and studio time began. I am looking forward to including this in an August exhibition.
