Life on the Turon by WildWassa Life on the Turon by WildWassa
Spending time down on the Turon River, around the small towns of Hill End and Sofala, is the most fun I could wish for.

The Turon Goldfields are lovely to be on, looking at the diggings, getting very muddy doing a bit of prospecting in the jet black clay that everyone else avoids (a good tip from a geologist friend), being lost in the labrynth of eroded gullies and abandoned mines or just sitting under a river oak wondering which rock next to go and put the dentist tools into a crack of, looking for small bits of colour (another good tip when looking for gold in areas that have already been well worked).

You might only see a person or two in the course of a week down on the Turon, if you're not spending too much time in the pubs of Sofala and Hill End, that is.

The light on the western slopes is luminous, it just glows and every day is different ... [link]

Lovely. I live on the outskirts of Sofala. A small cottage next to the Turon.

Thank you.

I'm pleased that you like the shot. This image has definitely now been appreciated by the right person.

I wish I lived in a small cottage next to the Turon.

Thank you for waiting for my reply. I've been in Victoria and only returned home yesterday.

I'm just about to have a look at your gallery ... I can't wait. I hope that I read that you are a member of the Turon Group of artists?

Warren.
