Bell Park Dam – rain in the distance

This is a friend’s backyard. I was introduced to him at the supermarket in the day and by dusk arrived here. I’m guessing on the exact place – because we drove this in the twilight and returned in the black. Night in the hilly countryside being what it is, I’ve done my best to retrace the steps and Bell Park looks right. Here we were a few thousand feet up over a drop-off with a couple handfuls of kids running about. To get here you travel down a dirt road off a dirt road and on the way back you roll past people carrying their belongings in the rain. They pop up around corners for a brief moment in the headlights, and it’s amazing how they fly almost standstill into nothing behind you. I remember feeling less than settled that night after the spectacular view and the winding, dipping drive home.
