I took a trip not so long ago to the beautiful Sherbrooke Forest in Mount Dandenong. This is the place I like to visit when things are getting a little too intense. Anywhere in the hills is perfect for regrouping and collecting your thoughts. It was a really crisp, fresh day when I went up there – great for taking photos.
Can anyone else see the old woman with her arms made out of (albeit dead) trees and ivy raised as if she’s about to pounce and snatch you as you walk past? Just me?
How lush and green is it? I love the texture of trees. And moss! So many different colours.
It’s such a special space. Everything seems so quiet at first but then, once you start listening, you can hear all sorts of different sounds – bugs buzzing, birds chirping, trees swaying, wind rustling, leaves and twigs crunching underfoot. When I breathe the cold air in, I feel so peaceful but excited at the same time. I’m so happy to be in a place that exemplifies the rustle and hum of nature, rather than the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
