There is something wonderful about watching the sun rise on a crisp Autumn morning.
On Monday morning my husband and I got up early and left home at 6:30am so we could watch this beautiful scene. It was breathtaking. I know the sun rises everyday and sets every night, but no matter how many times I see it, it is still a glorious scene.
I live in a place that is beautiful. I am blessed. It is only a small city of 350,000 residents, our homes are surrounded by mountains and we live nestled within the valleys. To often we forget how beautiful our own surroundings are and quick to want to wander to other locations and forget to look at those places close to home thinking they couldn't possibly be exotic. I hope these photos give you an idea of how beautiful this little corner of Australia really is.
|Yes, there is city down there among the golden rays of sunlight.|
|This is the new information centre and restaurant. It has great views over the valley towards the mountains.|
|1000's of trees forming part of National Arboretum, it will be an amazing site once they are full established.|
|A little bit of modern art, a steel birds nest. I really like it! He must enjoy watching the sun rise every day and set at day's end.|
|At the top of Dairy Farmers Hill - it allows a wonderful view of my city.|
|Lots of people came out to watch the balloons and the sunrise, I just love the silhouettes of the people against the clear sky.|
|All things that go up, must come down. I took this shot on the way home. My husband is driving and I took it through the window.|
