Playing Gooseberry.....!!

This shot was taken from Gooseberry Hill which is a Perth suburb located in the Shire of Kalamunda and the site of Gooseberry Hill National Park, we were at the northern most highest feature of  Statham's Quarry which is within park land.  Perth Airport lies between here and the city, you can see to the right of the shot the airport tower. The haze was caused by a bush fire just off to the side of us, which didn't seem to bother the young couple sitting in the middle of the bush on a big rock admiring the view (maybe!!), can you see them down there! Ah! the joys of young love.....!!

  5. Every young lover should know "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes"!

    Fascinating panoramas...and now I have a much better understanding of Perth and what it looks like.

    Merci!

  6. Great panoramic shots, Grace. The first one looks as though it's taken from a plane!

  7. Nice panorama. Never seen a place quite like it. You are a big city but you are so completely isolated on the west coast of Australia.

  8. The Shire of Kalamunda? Gee, I wished I lived near the Shire of Kalamunda so I could say it all the time.

  12. The airport seems very close to the city or perhaps that's just the zoomed in effect! Do you get a lot of fires?

  13. Nice view, didn´t realize you could see the city from the hills, must take a drive up there one of these days.

  14. I always like a view from a hill or a mountain. You can look so far and even see a bushfire! Isn't that dangerous, we read often about the fires in your country.

  18. If your top photo and third photo were taken from the same spot, you have a good telephoto.
