Sitting in the autumn sun


Walking, talking, eating, lying reading in the sun in the Royal Botanic Gardens on the edges of Farm Cove. Hard to beat this!


A Sunday in the middle of autumn, 25C, windy in the upper atmosphere.

I so agree. If I've ever got to kill time in the city then the gardens are where I always head. I've often snapped away with my camera there .. interesting to see the shots you've selected.

You and so many others. Although it may not be reflected in these shots, I thought there were a lot of people about. Not just wandering through, like me, but with gear to make a day of it. Sort of overview shots these. I have lots of others. *grin*

Yes, get away from that traffic!

The first picture has a strange shaggy sky. That would make a first rate Skywatch Friday picture, but doubtless you have many more. But I like the the rolling green lawns of the middle photos best. Greenswards they are sometimes called. They make a great place to walk, to kick a ball or throw a Frisbee, or best yet to lie down on.

These are wonderful shots. I agree...I would like to be lying down on the grass looking at that awesome sky just relaxing. Beautiful. Autumn in Arizona is my favorite time of the year also.

You've made a lush green sandwich, with divine skies for the bread.

Great skies. They're perfect for brilliant sunsets too. Just captured a couple of good one recently.

Up here in Newcastle the weather's blissful too! I'm so glad you were able to enjoy it. And I agree with one of your other 'commenters'....that sky is wonderful.

There is something special about familes enjoying public spaces... dunno what it is

Dina said...

Great skies to sit under.

Ahh, you have such a paradise down there.

The weather is great lately not too hot and one can walk in the gardens or work in the garden without turning as red as a beetroot. I like the little white clouds in the last shot ,which are lower than the others. They look like lost sheep. The skyline is good too with the bridge peeping over the top.

Those skies are amazing! I like what Diane said about those puffy white clouds in the last picture - like lost sheep. Great shots of paradise!
