It is a long weekend here as it was ANZAC day on Sunday. The day was absolutely glorious, it was warm but not too warm, clear with no wind and the sun shone.
So we used the excuse of demonstrating my GIMP course to go for a walk. If you are unaware of what I am talking about I am offering a 6 week online workshop using the graphics program GIMP as a design tool.
So I am on the look out for fresh photos to play with. A mild Autumn day with the leaves turning was a perfect excuse to take our cameras out.
For those non- Aussie readers this bird is Crimson Rosella. They are quite common here but they never fail to delight me.
We went to Weston Park and had coffee at the gallery. It is a delightful spot and looks much better than Google maps suggest. Weston Park is a peninsula located on the western side of Lake Burley Griffin in Canberra. The park is named after Charles Weston, who had founded the nearby Yarralumla Nursery. There are many European trees, so it is a glorious place when the trees are turning.
I thought I would share these 4 photos. Jerry took the photo of the leaf litter and caught the bird while I was busy thinking about the trees I was photographing.
