Mt Tomah Botanical Gardens & things I saw from the road….

I haven’t been to the Mt Tomah Botanical Gardens for years. Last Sunday we decided to take a leisurely drive up into the Blue Mountains to revisit these beautiful gardens…

Mt Tomah Botanical Gardens are situated on the Bells Line of Road via Bilpin. Its about a two hour drive from Sydney and really worth the effort.

The views over the blue mountains are gorgeous, lots of clear, crisp, mountain air (in fact a bit too crisp – it was only 8 degrees!) and that beautiful blue haze…hmm…I love it..

The gardens are beautiful, lots of levels and styles and some really magnificent flowers.

We stayed for lunch and wandered around the entire garden…of course I took lots of pics. 🙂

On the way home I spotted an old sawmill complete with lots of old trucks and machinery. These trucks look like someone just parked them, got out and they have never been driven since….I love the rust, the colours and textures and all the old bits and pieces..

The sawmill still has the saw and a piece of wood on the conveyor belt ready to be sawn….

I wonder what happened here? What closed the place down so suddenly?

Our last stop was Kurrajong…St Gregory’s Church was just asking to be photographed in the late afternoon light… 🙂

I hope you enjoy the pics…

Photo of the day…Brooklyn Bridge, New York

I love photographing bridges. This photo was taken on the Brooklyn Bridge, New York on a VERY bleak winters day.

Completed in 1883, this suspension bridge spans the East River between Manhattan and Brooklyn, New York City.

It has six lanes for vehicles and a separate, raised pathway for use by pedestrians and cyclists.

I loved the wires, cables, the rust and the sound of the traffic beneath us as we walked across to Brooklyn.

What a magnificent structure….

Have you walked the Brooklyn Bridge? I’d love to hear from you. Please leave a comment below or follow this blog 🙂
