Country lines


It should come as no surprise to you that I have included autumn leaves on this trip but the leafy photos are few, something which cannot be said for abandoned houses which are many.

One thing I like about this time of year is that morning begins rather late, so there is time for a nice sleep in under the warm covers to ward off the chilly air (yes there was frost on the grass) before venturing out to take photographs.

We camped at Molong, one of my favourite towns in this region so we have returned here several times.  Interestingly I remembered that three years ago we were here on Mother's Day weekend too.  It must be the call of autumn urging us over the mountains to enjoy the crisp sunny weather.

Visit Molong at 100 towns and you will see this same stand of poplars taken in the evening light on our earlier trip.

  1. A nice photo with the light and the perspective. It's always a little bit strange hearing (sic!) you talking about autumn while we are waiting for summer ... each year the same ;-)

  2. Beautiful row of poplars in both lights - they are glorious decked out in their Autumnal finery.

  3. So they are poplars, I'm not very good with trees (or green things in general). As I think Julie mentioned at one one stage we seem to have even less autumn colour around than usual.

  4. I love poplars in the autumn too. Wish I could sleep in most days in the cooler months, but unfortunately that's not an option at the moment.

  5. I don't like sleeping in. There is too much niceness to miss out on. I think the leaves down here are being swept from the branches before they have a chance to change much at all at the moment.

    Good to have you back.
