Avenue of Honour – in Autumn…

Hello again to everyone!  A good harvest is safely in (our earliest ever) and now it seems  autumn may be early – everything is out of step.  I took this image yesterday, the Avenue of Honour in Macedon.  I’ve taken an image of this road before (click for link), last time in spring on my converted Nikon D90 in near infrared.  I may be a week too soon for the colours but still very beautiful 🙂

Avenue of Honour – MMC 35

This is an image of the Avenue of Honour at Macedon.  An important part of Australian culture, there are 547 known avenues in Australia.  Each tree represents a person who saw or died in wartime service, generally in the First World War.  The planting of this one was initially finished in August 1918 – you can read the local newspaper article here.  Also this is my submission for the 35th Monochrome Madness hosted by Leanne Cole and posted Wednesday mornings (ADST)
