Neighbourhood 31

A glorious morning for walking in the park with Maggie. A happy shot to finish off the month's theme.
Beautiful shot and lovely light on the trees.

@ludwigsdiana It was lovely down there. Changed now, chilly and grey.

Seems like a lovely place to walk in the early morning; so quiet ...

What a lovely place to morning walking.

No problem social distancing here you look as though you have the park to yourselves.

@momamo @onewing Relatively early on a chilly Sunday morning, so not too many OP around.

@haskar It's a great place for a morning walk, right by the river too.

What a gorgeous shape to that tree

Beautiful sunshine and shadows!

The mornings lately have been very nice. I love the long casting shadows in this.

I love trees! Good shot.

Beautiful tree- nicely gnarled with a happy companion beside it.

@casablanca It's my favourite out of all the umpteen trees down there.

@marlboromaam It was, and now today's cold, strong (cold) westerly winds and intermittent rain. What a difference a day makes in southern Victoria.

@dianeburns Quite a contrast today. Winter's hit us with a vengence right on the dot.

@golftragic
I was thinking that myself.

Does look to be an idyllic spot to hang out outside!

@taffy It is in pleasant weather. Today it's sheer crap outside, to put it bluntly. Cold, strong chilly westerlies and intermittent rain, with hail a possibility. What a difference a day makes in southern Victoria.

I can not imagine that it should be cold in Australia...
Anyway, a nice place for a walk.
June 1st, 2020  
Terrific :)

A very Australian look with those gums! Nice!

@jerome If I remember correctly you really only visited northern Australia where it is always hot, in the daytime at least. Inland nights can get very cold. But southern Oz has totally different climates. Some (SW Western Australia and part of South Australia) have Mediterrean climates, the southeastern corner is Cool Temperate and Tasmania is cooler again. Mind you, cold is relative, I'm freezing with anything under 10 degrees whereas you probably don't think that's cold.

Great light on those beautiful gums.. Maggie looks like shes having a ball..

Thank you for your information about the climatic conditions! I was actually only in Northern Australia - and saw just a tiny section of it. You should treat yourself to a whole year touring this great continent. Life is so short...

Wonderful tree

Hope all is OK with you Marnie!
July 8th, 2020  
Yes Marnie! Let us know if you are fine!

@maggiemae @caterina Thank you my friends for your concern re my health. I'm fine and am doing my best to remain so by being very careful. Les's dicey back played up big-time in June which, together with her normal chest issues meant that anything that had to be done anywhere, inside or out, was down to me. Which left me little 'spare' time to do much. Plus, I'm trying to take my photography in a different direction of taking fewer, better photos and then processing them slowly with multiple fine adjustments where needed. I'd bought a couple of online processing courses which took up a fair bit of my 'spare' time too. I don't think I want to come back to daily posting and the time commitment for doing that, at least for now, but will try to post some shots from time to time and see what my friends are doing. Thanks again.

@jerome You're right Jerome, life is very short. But since COVID-19 our various state borders have been closed. Most are now open again, but Victoria has had enough positive cases that the state borders are completely closed for the time being. Not only that, but Melbourne and suburbs are in lock-down from the rest of the state. So far so good here in Geelong, but I think it's only a matter of time before we get transmission from the Melbourne outbreak. So it's back to staying home and as safe as possible for now.

What a magnificent tree with Australian sun color glowing on it. I hope Les is doing better by now and you will stay well, too.
