Autumn Colours – Mount Wilson NSW

Don’t you just love autumn? The colours, the textures and the way the plants change….

This year in Sydney we’ve had a really warm autumn….25 degree days – for the last couple of weeks – even as I speak – today is going to be 25 degrees again!!

I thought I might have been a bit late to head up to Mount Wilson and photograph the colours…but they surprised me….when you are way up high the temperature really does its thing to the trees and landscape…

Here are some pics I took yesterday at two ‘Open Gardens’ at Mount Wilson…. ‘Windy Ridge’ and ‘Breenhold’  – Ray and I really enjoyed soaking up nature and being in the open spaces of these awesome properties.

I shot with two cameras {Canon 5d mk 11 and 5d mk 111} – I had my 24-105mm and my 100mm macro on both canon cameras – {thanks Ray for helping me with them.}

Remember to click on each photo to enjoy a large view…

cheers

‘Bisley’ – Mount Wilson – another beautiful garden…

I know I’ve been on a bit of a garden theme of late 🙂

Spring is in the air and there are so many FANTASTIC gardens to view in the glorious blue mountains.

Last Sunday Ray and I took off to Mount Wilson which is off the Bells Line of Road on the way to Lithgow NSW.

What a quaint little village tucked away just waiting to be explored 🙂

The garden we chose to visit was called ‘Bisley’…A 4 hectare garden that is lovingly cared for by its two gorgeous owners who are in their eighties!!

They bought the virgin land in 1982 and have spent the last 30 years creating this magnificent garden.

I loved wandering around with the camera, looking for pockets of light filtering down through the trees. The wisteria was one of the most beautiful I have ever seen…

It was very hot, but there were plenty of shady spots to rest and take in the glorious views….
