Autumn Glory

Recently, over a family dinner, we were talking about photography and what to do with the photos we’d taken. Digital photography (for me) over the last 10 years+ has led to many unsorted photos being stored on my computer and rarely shared with anyone, which defeats the purpose of photographing. I want to share what I see with other people!

During the discussion we mentioned photo books, AV’s (digital slideshows) and then the subject of this blog came up. Looking back, I see the last post I published was way back in September 2013. A lot has happened since then! As I’m on leave at the moment and family birthdays gave us a good excuse for a photography outing, here is the result.

Thanks for the encouragement Bryce & Kelly, hope you like the photos.

All of the following images were taken at McLaren Falls Park at the weekend, in the company of my husband, sister and mother. It had been raining earlier in the day and there was a cold wind during our visit but we managed to dodge the showers. Other than the lovely autumn colours, the highlight of the afternoon for me was a group of warmly-dressed young women seated on the ground under a tree, sharing a picnic and videoing themselves singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to an absent friend. When we told them it was also Mum’s birthday today, they needed no encouragement to sing to her.

Happy Birthday Mum!
