Autumn in Canberra from Red Hill

(Please click on photos for enlarged, more detailed view.)

Black Mountain and Tower beyond Lake Burley Griffin.

Parliament House and flag flying in the foreground, with Anzac Avenue beyond the lake, below Mt Ainslie.

Towards Fyshwick and the Airport.

Overlooking Federal Golf Course to Woden Town Centre.

View over Manuka and Kingston.

Towards Queanbeyan, New South Wales.

The Woden Valley with Canberra Hospital (centre), Town Centre (right), Brindabella Ranges in the distance.

Woden Valley and the Brindabellas.

The Woden Valley under stormy skies.

Parliament House with water from the Captain Cook Water Jet blowing in the background.

Mt. Ainslie stands guard over Civic (business centre of Canberra.)

I couldn't resist this view of the Woden Town Centre. Posted by Picasa

These are lovely photos! Your skies look like ours did a few weeks ago. The trees are such lovely colors, too!
We're in a lovely warm spingtime here in California.

I just love the fall. Mind you, I am really enjoying spring right now.

Stunning landscape Alice. Your landscape & skies look so vast in comparison to ours.
Another sunny day here in Wales and I'm loving it! Marion

Ohh I want to come to Canberra to visit. Not only to see you Dear Alice, but also those trees. I shall just have to wait for my dec. trees to get bigger to enjoy sights like that.
Dare I say it... more photos, more photos, more photos (ducking cause Richard is probably ready to through the camera at

Looks like another lovely outing you and Richard had. What beautiful views! You can see for miles up there, can't you? Your photos are wonderful! Thanks for 'taking us with you' on your latest tour. Love seeing Canberra (and hearing all the familiar names)! It's a beautiful place.

What an absolutely silly thing for me to say... But I didn't realise just how beautiful Australia is! I seem to imagine the harsh 'bush' bits and forget that there are gorgeous lush areas too. It seems that one can't see Canberra for the trees, in my opinion, just as a city should be :)

Definitely a place I'd like to visit from now on.

Your photos of autumn in Australia are beautiful! It seems strange that you are having autumn when we are haveing spring in the United States.
