A few more remembrances of our autumn colour pilgrimage to
the Victorian Alps, the caravan park at Jamieson with its magic
of autumn colour. Those of you in the Northern Hemisphere must
wonder at my excitement to be amongst all this splendid colour.
Just consider that nearly all Australian trees are evergreen,
momentarily I can only think of one that is deciduous. There
must be a few more but they do not spring readily to mind.
The combination of autumn colour and running water is just
irresistible to me so we drive a thousand miles one way to
immerse ourselves in this glorious colour-bath.

i just love seeing autumn color when we're just now reaching summer heat. i know you're more into winter now, but those autumn colors are refreshing!ReplyDelete
Beautiful color.Before long,about 2-3 months we will begin seeing that kind of color in my country.ReplyDelete
Beautiful autumn images.ReplyDelete
Summer here has been a mish mash of hot sunny days but lots of rain at the moment... roll on July.
It is always strange sitting here in the first flush of summer looking at fall colours!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.ReplyDelete
A wonderful look at your colorful world.ReplyDelete
Autumn is such a beautiful time of year!ReplyDelete
What a lovely walk!! Your world is soooo beautiful, Arija! I love all the little wonders you catch with your diligent lens!ReplyDelete
Warm greetings from a thundering Niger,
Such gorgeous images of autumn! Love the rich, beautiful colors! And your photos are superb as always, Arija! Hope you have a good week! Take care! Enjoy!ReplyDelete
What a delightful post. I enjoyed each photo--the fall colors were amazing. Such a colorful and beautiful time of year--well worth any amount of traveling to be in the midst of that kind of beauty. Mickie :)ReplyDelete
A wonderful post, I love the pretty colors and the willow tree. The birds are great and I always enjoy seeing birds from around the world. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
What a beautiful group of photos!ReplyDelete
Beautiful autumn pictures. Here, in Brazil, now is winter.ReplyDelete
greetings from Roberto
I love the way your blog makes me rethink time and place and what is. Your world is lush and beautiful. Thank you.ReplyDelete
Very lovely autumn shots :)ReplyDelete
I can see why you travel so far to enjoy the colors of fall. Guess I didn't realize most of your trees are evergreen. So many here are also, but in fall the aspen show their gold to accent the various greens. And I've seen the Amanitas here too. Beautiful!ReplyDelete
the water the birds all wonderful to see.
you drove one thousand miles, that is a long drive!
Beautiful images. The maple leaves are gorgeous.ReplyDelete
I've never realised your trees are always green.ReplyDelete
So this is indeed a splendid trip for you with very beautiful pictures
Hi there - I can remember being shocked during my first autumn in Australia that all the colour came from trees from overseas.ReplyDelete
It just means that you need to tune into a different set of changes for autumn - for me I know the summer is over when we get currawongs around the house.
Nice set of pictures.

ah yes, the grey blue greens of aussie native trees can get a bit boring - but then we have leaves on the trees all year, so no raking required :)ReplyDelete
we used to make an annual trip to Bright for the autumn colours
thanks for sharing some autumn glory with us
Delightful captures. The weather seems fantastic.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the wonderful walk around the caravan park, Arija! Your autumn colours are like ours. Especially the rich golden leaves are irresistible. You have to take a photo of them.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the visit! I am always happy to see you!
Beautiful autumn colours.ReplyDelete
I understand your longing to be immersed in such color. The story of a thousand kilometer journey makes me very thankful to live in the deciduous forest where I can let the color come to me. Summer has just arrived here at the 45th parallel and I for one am not anxious to rush the season!ReplyDelete
Cheers to you Arija!
Oh my Arija, as much as I want summer to go on forever, I do so enjoy all the beautiful Autumn colors. I didn't know Australia has mostly evergreens. Very Interesting..ReplyDelete
A beautiful post!!
I'm so sorry about your day. We've had a few too. Feel better-HUGS♥
Fall looks lovely on your side of the world! Beautiful shots!ReplyDelete
Another beautiful sets of photos that I'm will not get tired of looking at. :)ReplyDelete
Great photos as usual. It is lovely and unusual to see that much autumn color around Australia. I guess that might be why I like planting so many plants with colored foliage.ReplyDelete
Are Aminitas just not soooooo cool? I think they can get as large as dinner plates here. That Willow image is simply magnificent Arija. Have a great rest of the week~ReplyDelete
Is the second a reflection? It almost looks like a painting!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful selection of autumn color! It will be a few months here before the leaves change and as beautiful as it is I'm in no hurry as winter will soon follow.
thanks for your comment on the rainbow. Certainly you can copy it to your computer; I consider that to be quite a complement!
Very attractive photos. We get some autumn color where I live, particularly the golden aspen, but it's nothing like in the northeast part of the country.ReplyDelete
Love that mushroom and the autumn colours.ReplyDelete

Wow! Such gorgeous autumn colors. I love those red maple leaves. Very pretty shots. I can't wait for autumn, but it's not quite a colorful around here...thanks for stopping by!
Everything is beautiful, esp that mushroom. You are so lucky that you have all the seasons nearby and can easily there whenever you feel like experiencing a season at any moment. lovely photos tooReplyDelete
Thanks again for taking us through such beauty!! love the long shots of the park, the maple leaves and of course, the birds!! Wonderful!!ReplyDelete
That's a beautiful post... I enjoyed viewing all those lovely photos of your golden autumn. Thanks for sharing your world.ReplyDelete

A beautiful series of shots! Autumn is my favorite time of year on any continent.ReplyDelete
Beautiful coloured trees and birds.ReplyDelete
Hi there - it must be King Parrot week!ReplyDelete
I think your right when you say you need to "tune in" to be able to see things - once you see the first one, you find heaps!
I only tend to see the Kings P's up in the hills - although I have seen one in the park behind my house - that that’s only 20 minutes from the middle of Melbourne.
Cheers Stewart M.
The scenery is awesome I can see WHY you love it!! Fall is the most splendid time of yr in my mind..Love the bird shots that silver eye has the prefect name.ReplyDelete
Incredible photos of the fall colors Arija! I feel as if I took a relaxing walk through your world.ReplyDelete
Beautiful birds and awesome landscapes! Autumn is my favorite time of the year. Great post!ReplyDelete

Very interesting post. Autumn is my favorite time of the year - but not now!!!!ReplyDelete
