My response to Ailsa’s travel challenge : Bright. http://wheresmybackpack.com/2012/11/02/travel-theme-bright/
Every time I visit the north coast of New South Wales, Australia I am dazzled by the brightness of the light. Where I live in southern Victoria the light is soft and muted. The colours have a pastel hue. Northern NSW has a sub-tropical climate. The colours are bright. Everything appears hard edged and clearly defined. The lush brightness saturates the senses. The air is filled with shrill sounds of cicadas and the atmosphere is hot and humid. It’s exciting and vibrant.
