MtLawleyShire’s Hyde Park – Trees

I’m not sure there will be a Hyde Park calendar for 2016, but if there was, it would include some of these photos which are mostly of the park’s beautiful trees.  A most loved place, and definitely loved by me.

Trees form the park, the paths, the sense of being far, far away from the middle of a large city:

There are the Moreton Bay Figs:

living sculpture of woody coating unseen muscle:

they act as frames for the park’s restricted yet expansive vistas:

The plane trees are beautiful in all seasons,

2016_calendar_Hpark_6  2016_calendar_Hpark_22

but so gorgeous in Autumn:

The jacarandas:

The plane trees are frames for the ponds:

2016_calendar_Hpark_7  2016_calendar_Hpark_5

Then there are the trees on the islands in the ponds:

2016_calendar_Hpark_20

2016_calendar_Hpark_28

There are the ancient and massive:

2016_calendar_Hpark_34  2016_calendar_Hpark_30

2016_calendar_Hpark_4

there is a sense of wilderness:

2016_calendar_Hpark_1 2016_calendar_Hpark_2

& above all, there is a sense of the magic, the wonder, the mystery of light and shadow within trees:

It is one of my favourite places in this city.

MtLawleyShire 2016 calendars #3 – Raindrops

Many people have asked about a calendar of raindrop photos, so here is a selection.  It’s been difficult choosing them.  Again, there are too many for one calendar, so these are the photos most likely to appear in a calendar.
