Smoke from early morning campfires. Kanangra, NSW, Australia. 2010

Although the temperatures went below freezing during the night, my wife and I had an excellent time camping with friends at Boyd’s crossing in the Kanangra Boyd National Park over the weekend.

The photo above was taken in the morning while there was still frost on the ground. People were starting up their fires to cook breakfast. It was such a beautiful setting to share with friends and to have our favourite breakfast, huevos ranchero.

It doesn’t get much better than that!

Epicurus once said, “We should look for someone to eat and drink with before looking for something to eat and drink, for dining alone is leading the life of a lion or wolf”

  1. Oh, my, what a lovely shot! You are dangerously close to abstraction here, Prof Buffnik! Love it. (It’s early early morning here and I have to admit I’ve never eaten huevos ranchero but I think I can smell something good as I look at this photo!)

  2. This is a gorgeous photo, razzbuffnik, and as Pat says, dangerously close to abstraction! It’s great to know there are still lovely spots like this in the world — where huevos ranchero are served, no less!

    Thanks. Like I said once before, when it come to taking photos, for me, “it’s horses for courses”, rather than style for style’s sake.

    Sounds like it’s time to expand your social circle. It takes some effort but it’s worth it in the long run and it gives you an excuse to improve on your cooking skills.


    Thanks. Australia still has plenty of places that are miles from anywhere. The Kanangra Boyd, Blue Mountains and Wolliemi National parks all join up with each other, and together are bigger than Belgium and the really great thing is that they are within about an hour’s drive of Sydney, a city with a population of 4.4 million people.

    Huevos ranchero are served where ever I go…..

    because I cook them!


    Thanks and too true!
