Autumn's First Blush

After a really delightful summer (and it's still hot today with a prediction of an even hotter tomorrow), I saw this first hint of autumn today in the chestnut trees below Beacon Hill. I went there this afternoon because I realized that although I often have featured Beacon Hill Park on this blog, I have never discussed its name. It's called Beacon Hill Park because of this hill above the ocean, where there used to be a beacon to guide ships. I took this photo from near the top of the hill. Behind me, over the crest of the hill are the Children's Zoo, the giant watering can, the cricket oval, the heronry and all the other delights of the park. I hope your summer's been as pleasant as mine.

Well, I'm glad to hear you finally have the temperatures you enjoy most. It looks like you caught some sunbathers in the sweltering sun. ;^)

I discovered your blog just recently, Benjamin, but I'll be back often to look at your beautiful photos!

That really is a splendid, idyllic shot. The light, the view, it's all magnificent.

From everything that I’ve read, Victoria and Tasmania are rather similar climes, which means that you must be fortunate to live in a magnificent area! This looks a lot like the views around my home town of Burnie.
