It certainly is Autumn and racing head-long into Winter. Tomorrow's forecast is 5 degrees C overnight with a maximum of 17 degrees C. The cold southerlies are making themselves felt.

Thank you for viewing.

Cheers

Bernice

That is a lovely sunset Bernice. Beautiful shades of pink with contrasting blue. Dangar's Lagoon has given you lots of photo opportunities!

Thank you banksy and jj. At times it can be an extraordinarily peaceful spot — one of my favourite places in fact. And yes, banksy, it has given me some marvelous photo opportunities since it began to fill again after the drought. BTW the weather forecast was a bit out yesterday - got down to 1 degree C and our first frost (white all over) then today it was minus 1 and an even whiter frost. Here comes winter!

Wow, that is a fab shot. The colours and the reflections that you have captured are superb.

Nice capture. The sunset as well as the silhouette of the trees are truly pleasing to watch. Looks so peaceful in this place. It's a nice getaway from the stresses of the city. Thanks for sharing!

Dyane, John & Frank — thank you all for your comments. It really was a lovely evening at the lagoon even with the chill factor on the wind. Yes, I hope we have a winter that is nothing at all like the one you've just been through in the northern hemisphere!!
thank you.

Bernice
