Yes, these photos were taken in May, I am ashamed to say. And here it is, almost July before I post this selection. Oh dear. This will be a first post in a series of Autumn at Hyde Park posts.
Ot was a cold clear day with the sky as blue and clear as possible. The night of these photos was, for Perth, very cold. We had very cold days and nights towards the end of May.
First, the ‘sentry tree’ – I love this guy
Along the walkways towards the ponds
It’s not quite difficult to get photos as they’ve lopped off all the lower branches, but for this year at least, there is still this lovely view of plane trees reflected in the pond in all their autumnal glory. Next year, the native saplings planted along the edges will obscure this view, so enjoy.
These trees are just gorgeous in their gold:
& I love the revealed strength in the great trunks:
& the fall of golden leaves – manes of light:
leaves catching the light:
& this: love this weird tree & its reflection in the still mirroring water of the pond
Leaves against darker native foliage:
& this one: plane tree leaves against the sky.
More Autumn & Winter photos coming
