Merimbula turned on the magic, as always, this past long weekend. Between the jazz festival , street parade and inaugural lantern walk the town was abuzz with activity, music and happy people. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better this happened. Thanks for a cracker of a weekend Merimbula Location: Fishpen, Merimbula. By the way this view was just a short stroll from my accommodation at Coast Resort Merimbula @coastresort This gorgeous hotel resort is also right next to the beach and an easy walk to town. It’s so worth a visit. . #sapphirecoast #newsouthwales #sapphiresnappers @southcoasttravelguide #seeaustralia #exploringaustralia #ig_australia #australia_shotz #aussiebucketlist #lifeofaustralia #australia_vacations #travelaustralia #travel2next #sky_sultans #world_bestsky #skymasters_family #sky_brilliance #sunset_vision #sunset_stream #super_photosunsets #unlimitedsunset #insta_sky_reflection #takemetoaustralia

. Like a candle in the wind Never fading with the sunset When the rain set in… . Looking at this shot of a recent sunrise I was reminded of Elton John’s song. Makes me want to pop down to the local cinema to catch Rocketman, the story of Elton John’s life for some inspiration. . #visitcanberra #canberralocals #wearecbr #canberratimes #seeaustrallia #australiagram #ig_australia #exploringaustralia #beautifuldestinations #sunset_vision #sunset_stream #super_photosunsets #sky_sultans #sky_brilliance #ig_skyvibes #world_bestsky #reflectiongram #splendid_reflections #loves_reflections #ig_world_colors #ig_colorshot

I shared these trees recently showcasing their beautiful reflections in the pond. I’m now sharing the tree tops as a farewell to autumn. I’m sure I’ll find more colour before its finally gone but not this dazzling.🤩 Location: The little pond at Weston Park . #visitcanberra #thiscanberranlife #canberralocals #seeaustralia #exploringaustralia #aussiephotos #tree_brilliance #tree_magic #tree_captures #heart_imprint_vip #nature_wizards #bestnatureshot #nature_perfection #fiftyshades_of_nature #naturehippys_ #hugs_for_trees #raw_alltrees #pocket_trees #splendid_reflections #loves_reflections #bns_reflection

Nara Park Peace I shared this avenue a few posts back. Here it is again looking in the opposite direction with the rust coloured leaves in foreground. The previous shot showed the yellows in the foreground. I’m always amazed how differently scenes photograph just by moving around. I love playing with light and composition by doing this and often find magic where I didn’t expect it. . #visitcanberra #autumn #wearecbr #seeaustralia #exploringaustralia #ig_australia #tv_australia #australiapassion #ig_estradas #allbeauty_addiction #tree_brilliance #tree_magic #tree_captures #hugs_for_trees #ig_shotz_trees #bestnatureshot #picturetokeep_nature #riyets #ig_colorshot #colors_of_day #exquisiteearth

Oriental Tower I was initially drawn to this view because the tree tops were lighting up beautifully with the rising sun. However, the play of light and shadows gave the scene a Japanese like feel and even the tower looks a bit futuristic temple. Just saying… Location: Weston Park . #visitcanberra #canberratothecoast #canberralocals #seeaustralia #australia_shotz #australiagram #aussiebucketlist #tlasia #travel2next #beautifuldestinations #splendid_view #explore_treetops #fortheloveofbranches #wordframeclub #hey_ihadtosnapthat #lovely_earthshotz #theworldshotz

Fireworks at Lennox Gardens As the sun rises the light hits these trees from underneath making the leaves glow and the trees look like flame throwers. As the sun climbs higher the colour fades to russet brown until sunset when the fireworks begin again. . #visitcanberra #thiscanberranlife #seeaustralia #exploringaus #focusaustralia #tree_brilliance #raw_alltrees #tree_captures #allbeauty_addiction #instanaturefriends_ #naturehippys_ #ig_color #colors_of_day #bns_earth #bestcaptureglobal #lovely_earthshotz #tree_magic

Nara Peace Park perfection The gardens were a gift from the people of Nara to the people of Canberra to celebrate the link between Canberra, Australia’s modern capital, and Nara, Japan’s ancient capital. The park was designed to create the feel of a traditional Japanese garden. My trip to the park this morning was richly rewarded with layered vistas of colour and texture in every direction. Thank you Nara, it’s perfect🍁💛 . #visitcanberra #canberrabucketlist #seeaustralia #australiagram #ig_australia #passionpassport #lonelyplanet #beautifuldestinations #ig_estradas #ig_serenity #hugs_for_trees #tree_magic #tree_brilliance #ic_trees #ig_color #colors_of_day #riyets #ig_myshots #worldframeclub #picture_to_keep #bestnatureshot

On Golden Pond literally! I took the exact same shot of this pond in Weston Park last year but posted it a month later when it’s best had passed. I took this shot recently so the pond is picture perfect for a visit over the next week or so until the leaves drop. The water is only ankle deep so you can wade in to get good reflection shots. It feels like walking on water when it’s this calm. However, you have to wait between ducks drifting by for the water to stop rippling but hey, it’s their pond 🦆🦆🦆💛 Note: to get the best shots go when the early morning light is just hitting the tree tops. They light up and make great reflections. The harsh light later in the day is not as pretty💛 . #visitcanberra #wearecbr #seeaustralia #ig_australia #exploringaustralia #reflectiongram #splendid_reflections #loves_reflections #tv_aqua #water_brilliance #tree_brilliance #tree_magic #tree_captures #raw_alltrees #ig_shotz_trees #nature_brilliance #fiftyshades_of_nature #colors_of_day #riyets #bns_earth #nature_sultans #heart_imprint_vip

Some people like to ‘paint the town red’ at night but mornings are more my style and what better place to play than the lake foreshore at sunrise. These trees are naturally red at this time of year but the vivid red sunrise that day made them glow even brighter.

Autumn at the Arboretum The National Arboretum Canberra is really starting to feel forest like now. It seems these trees were only babies yesterday but are way above head height now. The Arboretum has been planted with forests of rare, threatened and symbolic trees from Australia and around the world progressively since 2005 and even in these few short years the beauty of the plan is starting to emerge. #visitcanberra #canberralocals #canberratimes #thiscanberralife #seeaustralia #australiagram #ig_australia #exploringaustralia #ig_discover_australia #aussiephotos #australiapassion #australia_vacations #wotif #travel2next #travelaustralia #lonelyplanet #destinationearth #landscape_captures #love_landscape #tree_magic #tree_brilliance #tree_captures #sunset_stream #sky_sultans #earth_shotz #awesome_earthpix #ig_world_colors #ig_myshots #lovely_earthshots #discoverarboretum

Cycling heaven Canberra has a vast network of cycle paths that are getting more popular than ever as commuters, social riders and athletes take to the paths in droves and with rides like this it isn’t any wander🚴🏻‍♀️ Location: Central Basin, Lake Burley Griffin #visitcanberra #canberralocals #canberratimes #seeaustralia #ig_australia #exploringaustralia #lifeofaustralia #bns_travel #bestintravel #ig_estradas #aussie_images #tree_brilliance #tree_magic #tree_captures #ig_shotz_trees #bns_trees #pocket_trees #hugs_for_trees #fortheloveofbranches #loves_united_trees #nature_wizards #nature_sultans #afs_trees #all_colorshots #ig_color #ig_colorshot #worldframeclub #everything_imaginable

There’s drains and there’s drains. Here’s another shot of one of my favourites where it flows into the lake. The water was even more freezing than when I waded in a month ago but again so worth it.

Rising Phoenix I’ve always wondered what Telstra Tower looked like at close range in low cloud so finally went to see on a recent overcast day. I was disappointed to discover that the tower is virtually invisible from this distance. However, for a brief few minutes there was a break in clouds and the tower appeared. It was so pretty and almost mythical. . #visitcanberra #ourANU #canberrabucketlist #canberratimes #australiagram #seeaustralia #ig_australia #exploringaustralia #focusaustralia #socialifeaustralia #eclectic_shotz #igsilhouette #passionpassport #lifeofaustralia #tlasia #wotif #tigerairau #travel2next #destinationearth #dscvr_mist #rsa_fog #tv_foggy #lost_world_treasures #earthsmajesty #amazing_shots #earth_shotz #awesome_earthpix #ig_worldclub #ig_today #wowplanet

Path perfection🍁 For the best sightseeing walk, run or ride in Canberra you can’t go past Lake Burley Griffin’s Central Basin loop also known at the ‘bridge to bridge’ loop. The 5km loop connects Kings Avenue Bridge and Commonwealth Avenue Bridge and takes in the Parliamentary Triangle on the south side and Commonwealth Park on the north side. The vistas in any direction are gorgeous especially at this time of year💚💛🧡❤️ Location: I took this shot at exactly the same place as the previous shot but at ground level from under Commonwealth Avenue Bridge. . #visitcanberra #canberratothecoast #canberralocals #seeaustralia #australiagram #exploringaus #exploringaustralia #ig_australia #lifeofaustralia #australia_vacations #bns_travel #travel2next #bestintravel #ig_estradas #tlpicks #tlasia #ig_dynamic #raw_alltrees #fortheloveofbranches #loves_united_trees #bns_trees #earthpix #bestcaptureglobal #exquisiteearth #ig_worldclub #lost_world_treasures #ig_colorshots #ig_world_colors #colors_of_day #lovely_earthshotz

Peace and tranquillity in the middle of a city doesn’t get any better than this. Nara Peace Park is beautiful all year round but shines in Autumn. I’ve been waiting for the foggy season to start to capture the colours of the Park in the mist. However, the fog is late this year so here’s a shot from last season. . #visitcanberra #ourANU #wearecbr #seeaustralia #australiagram #ig_australia #exploringaustralia #wow_australia #tv_foggy #rsa_fog #dscvr_mist #tree_magic #raw_alltrees #tree_captures #tree_brilliance #fiftyshades_of_nature #nature_perfection #ig_eternity #heart_imprint_vip #ig_colorshot #ig_color #ig_world_colors #colors_of_day #bns_earth #worldframeclub #ig_fotografdiyari

Poplar bliss Traveling the Monaro Highway between Canberra and the Snowy Mountains is absolute bliss at the moment. Stands of Autumn toned poplars shine like beacons giving colour and contrast to the normally monochrome countryside. The little town of Bredbo has so many poplars it’s called the ‘Village of Poplars’ The country lane pictured connects farms to the highway at Michelago where I got lots of friendly waves from locals passing by. . . . . . #poplars #NewSouthWales #SeeAustralia #takemetoaustralia #ig_australia #exploringaustralia #ig_discover_australia #australiagram #focusaustralia #aussiephotos #ig_estradas #ig_color #colors_of_day #ig_colorshot #tree_brilliance #tree_magic #tree_captures #raw_alltrees #hugs_for_trees #loves_trees_rural #bns_trees #lifeofaustralia #australia_vacations #lonelyplanet #renegade_rural #ig_countryside #rsa_rural #rural_love #majestic_earth_ #visitcanberra
