I live near Mount Macedon where there are a lot of houses with beautiful gardens (most are more like parks, being acres in size) that were planted in the late 19th Century, landscaped with beautiful northern hemisphere trees and plants. They are often open to the public in spring and autumn. Last month I visited one and saw this huge and wonderful old Beech tree, its crown in full autumn glory 🙂
It is now officially winter down here in Oz and this last week was cold, dark and foggy (maximums of 6 C which for us is cold!). I like the fog and the silhouettes it creates – these are evergreen Eucalyptus trees. This is my submission for MM 2-14 hosted by the ever hard working Leanne Cole on Wednesdays – do have a look for a wonderful variety of monochrome images.
I took this image in the pine forest – it was very dark and as I ‘oohed and aahed’ at the fungi, I spotted this beautiful spider web catching the light in a shaft of sun. It reminded me of a dream catcher – hence a ‘light catcher’ 🙂
