Scenes from my Neighbourhood

A walk around the hill into the setting sun brings a few photographic challenges, but we always enjoy the ever changing scenery of trees, clouds and shadows.

Hi Alice!

I feel like I've just been for a stroll with you around Canberra's suburban streets! It's always lovely to see where you live and walk.

Hope you're having a lovely Easter!

It looks much like Tassie. Lots of Euc. trees and that stunning sky.I love all the trees. Your sky shots are beautiful.

Zoey said...

You do have the most beautiful views.
Is that a burning bush I see in it's full color?

Thanks for the tour.

Alice said...

No Zoey, it's a Crepe Myrtle in its autumn dress.

You have such a beautiful area to walk through Alice. The gum trees are magnificent. I can smell them (in my mind)! I love the photo of that big old dead tree. Reminds me of one I saw while walking back from the river the other evening. I think I took a picture..I'll check. Beautiful skies!
Does Richard get tired of waiting for you while you're snapping pictures? :) Thanks for the lovely tour. Happy Easter to you!

Sandy said...

I agree with Kerri. A lovely place for a walk. The pictures look so nice and warm. Have a great Easter!

Loved the shades and shadows of trees and clouds. Autumn looks as if it has arrived in Canberra and is displaying itself beautifully. I hope Easter has been a blessed time.

Blessings and bliss

Can I stay connected to your blog long enough to say 'Happy Easter Day'! I hope so. I'll email next week Frances.

What a nice walk down your street and over the hill. Your scenery is beautiful, you are now in the fall of the year I think. Look forward to more walks with you and your camera.

Beautiful pictures Alice...I loved walking with you.

Your photos soothe my soul. I live in the States, in a 'greenless' city. Thanks for the joy these bring to me!!

I always enjoy your photos, is that the Black Mountain tower in the distance,it's too long since I've visited Canberra.

I hope you don't mind, but I've tagged you to continue a meme that Stuart passed on to me - it's on my blog, I haven't been tagged before so I hope I'm doing this right. Don't worry if you don't want to do it.

Your first photo is beautifully composed, with the arching tree limb, and steeple in the distance. The early evening sidelighting is very dramatic also. I like your idea of taking us all on a stroll with you! Thanks :-)

Alice said...

Erica - yes, that is Black Mountain Tower in the distance.

Loved those pictures of our wonderful old land, reflected in its new landscape !!

I hope Easter has been a relaxing and uplifting time.

Best wishes

Beautiful photos ... Canberra is a very lovely place ... I haven't been there for a few years, though. I hope you were nowhere near where the fires were a few years ago ... that must have been very scary.
Thank you for sharing the photos.
Take care, Meow
