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,
but so gorgeous in Autumn:
The plane trees are frames for the ponds:
Then there are the trees on the islands in the ponds:
There are the ancient and massive:
there is a sense of wilderness:
& 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.
