I see what you mean, beautiful autumn leaves everywhere. Great shot. D
Hi Helen - well it's so interesting to see that you all do have fall colors there, also ( of course at the completely wrong time of year, lol!) This is such a tranquil scene - love it!
Beautiful scene Helen, and incredible mapping finding the exact spot under those clouds!
She is a pretty smart cookie our H.
Hi d someGirlinMasset someGuyinmasset
That cloud did confuse me for a while, til the street directory saved me.
We do have autumn colour BnP, but all from introduced species. Liquidamber trees colour up nicely here. We only have a couple of native deciduous plants (not sure if they colour up). A bit bland here this year due to the drought, a lot of trees just browned up and it really hasn't been very cold.
The native forests are evergreen. Street plantings, parks and gardens in older suburbs
feature exotics, but over the last 30 years or so the trend has been to plant Australian natives in home gardens and streets.
For a while cultivation info was lacking for natives and lots of us brought tiny little eucalyptus seedings that grew 20 metres overnight in optimum conditions then dropped branches on our houses!!!!
Greetings to all H
LOLOL, Helen - Gee - THANKS for feeding that old Rumour Mill! All I have to say is that if I ever make it to Masset, I sure better be allowed to use the D90 for my vaca photos! Though I'd be out in territory Guy has never ventured to, kayaking around the island. I'd have to sign my life away promising not to get it wet, I'm sure.
Yes BnP, I might have been out of the state, but still had my finger on the pulse, they don't call me Inspector for nothing!!!!
You've done the Grand Tetons, I reckon it's time for a change. Imagine a shoot-off between someGirl and someGuy swapping cameras - would make the NPC's interesting.
Helen i know that Victoria has better than the harsh west part of my past i miss Autumn colours. steve
Nobody told me that I should have been checking out your great gallery, Helen. : ( This is a great fall shot. Like everyone else has said, some of us "up" here don't associate fall color with Australia.
Beautiful shot Helen. I bet you were the only one there; most people overlook these gardens in favour of Sherbrooke forest across the road. Paul
steve we need some of that wet west coast weather from NZ - it only rains here every few months. Our dams are only 26% - we need a pipeline from Queensland or West Coast NZ. **ClickNZ* in my favourites has some beautiful autumn pics of Christchurch if you are homesick
Thanks for that nice compliment not1word we do have colour with the introduced trees, but our forests are all evergreen.
Thanks Paul. After making the trek down I was surprised that there were other real photographers there, tripods,big zooms etc, but everyone was considerate and moved out the way of shots, so it was actually quite nice sharing the space. H
Hello Helen...I'm thinking here that now your winter is almost over, your trees and gardens will be looking good and here we are in the UK in the dying embers of the year!!
Love your autumn colours!!
The marvellous bridge
Hey Paul I missed you....thanks 5 months on. Surprisingly popular that day for pics....even people with real cameras ...I should rush up the hill for a spring view.
Hi Jim, we have had an extraordinarily lush spring in Melbourne, the best spring rains over a couple of weeks for 10 years or more. (A colleague from dry old Canberra said it was like flying into Dublin, it was so green here!!!) Thanks H
Hello Valentine, thanks for your comments. Helen
Wonderful view, very beautiful.
