What a beautiful, sunny and warm winter’s afternoon we had in Canberra (and a great end to the school holidays, if that has an effect on you!).
We had lunch in the city today, driving past all the Australian and Papua New Guinean flags near Parliament House for the PNG Prime Minister’s visit (second picture).
The first picture is from my walk to the local shops this afternoon. I love going there, even if only for the spectacular mountain views in the south of Canberra.
Outdoor ice skating and fairy lights in Canberra last night.
Well, it feels like winter here this morning. It’s so foggy you can’t see the backyard next door, so what does our neighbourhood cat do? Stay home, you say? Nope, he comes here to sleep on the back deck!
This is the view out my office window at the moment. King parrots are everywhere in Canberra at this time of the year. There were at least a dozen in the tree, but because of the bright sunlight I was having trouble photographing more than two at once.
Cockatoos in Canberra late this afternoon. There were dozens on the line, but only a few could fit in the shot at a time!
Seagulls on the lake’s edge in Canberra this sunny winter afternoon.
