This Perfect Day

It is a wonderful time of the year in Canberra. While the days are shortening and cooling they are still mostly warm and the bite of winter is still a way off. When the sun is out,the air is still and the trees are decorated in their vibrant autumn hues, being outdoors is the only sensible place to be.

To add to the occasion, it is holiday time here – the school holidays are in full swing and Easter is now with us. For those taking time out with the kids, in the company of friends or simply taking advantage of a lunch break out of the office, the city’s central lake beckoned. Whether riding, running, walking, taking to the water on a varied assortment of craft or simply relaxing in the warm rays of the sun, it was simply a perfect day to be out.

In the spirit of the day, please sit back and enjoy the slideshow.

Mosaic

The scrappy saplings of deciduous trees cluster together to await the frosty chill of winter, their patchwork of living green and decaying yellow struggling against the brilliantly fading light.
