High on the hill.....


I took this shot from the South Perth foreshore looking over the Swan River towards the Narrows Bridge and  Kings Park . Up on the hill you can see the tall lemon scented gum trees that line the Fraser Avenue entrance to the park, this avenue of majestic trees planted in 1938 lead up to the State War Memorial overlooking the city. The abstract image below believe it or not is the Perth city skyline through a very wet windscreen, I just liked the colours reflecting into the river. I hope you've had a good week, here's wishing you a happy Friday, take care.....

  1. I love both of these. The first one is so sharp - do you usually use a tripod?

  10. So very pretty, for some reason it makes me think of Christmas :) Must be the gorgeous lights, that hazy twinkling, the peaceful feel. Sigh...
