Along the Ardeche. At this point on the road I screamed at my husband “don’t cross the road you’ll get run over and then I’ll be stuck here.” He has never let me forget that my own needs were greater than any sense of loss that I would feel for him. Not true of course but this road terrified me. How I took an establishing landscape shot I will never know.

In response to the prompt to post establishing landscape photographs.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. Commenced a masters by research in 2014.

    • Thanks Sharon. Yes I’ve been lucky to travel a bit. I’d circumnavigated the globe by the time I was three (not that I remember any of it) but it must have given me itchy feet (and not having children helped both as far as time went and being able to save).
