Canberra is famous for its extensive plantings of exotic trees which means it puts on a terrific Autumn colour display but by this time of year are bare and wintery.  It's a chilly place with the mountains often being snow capped in Winter.


  1. I like the beauty of these bare trees, it's like seeing impossibly elegant sculptures.

  2. They don't look so exotic to my eyes. Yes, yes, I know you mean non-native ...

    HOwever, the reason Canberra went for colour at this level, is because it is essentially colourless at every other level.

  3. Paula, intricate sculptures too.

    Julie, you are sooo right. The planned colour in the buildings is so boring, unlike the wonderful mish mash of great cities.
