SkyWatch ~ Wodonga Sunrise


Wodonga, on the Victorian side of the Murray River with
Albury on the the opposite bank in New South Wales. Both
cities are full of beautiful parks and gardens.


Just a few pictures for you of my sunrise walk after a night
in Wodonga. Our Motel backed onto this beautiful park with
a 1.26km walk around the lake.


The morning was chilly with frost on the ground and rising
vapours drifting over the lake.



It made for some spectacular light effects as the first birds
took to the sky


and a lone black swan enjoyed his breakfast.



It was an exhilarating walk and I circumnavigated the lake twice
enjoying the awakening wonders.

Another week, another SkyWatch, thank you marvellous SkyWatch
Team for this great meme.

  5. Thank you for your birthday wishes. It is always a joy to hear from you.

    It is so strange for me to see frost on the ground when it is 97F here now.

    Hope you are keeping warm while I keep cool.

    I am also very happy that Bella and I are such great friends. She is a gem!

    Thank you.
