Day 143 #Project365

143-365 bald trees

Winter is just around the corner. A lot more trees without leaves started to dominate the scenery now. The trees that still have some leaves started to lose their top foliage covering the ground beneath with blankets of autumn coloured dried leaves. Soon they too will be left bare.

I was (more) grateful (than usual) for my iPhone today. There I was feeling quite smug about my ‘time management’ that I could stop by Black Mountain Peninsula for a quick photo walk after I finished my morning errand in the city before I had to pick up Ms 4 from school at 12. Imagine how productive my morning would be. Turned out I left my camera’s memory card at home, happily sitting in my laptop where I left it the night before. Ah, if only…

While repeating ‘the best camera is what you have on you’ like a chant in my head I continued my walk and was rewarded by a beautiful view of the peninsula. I rarely came here so I was surprised and appreciated the beauty of the scenery from this side of the lake even more.

More bald trees around. Don’t be fooled by the bright sun. Winter is coming.

    Methinks we’ll be getting a lot of bald tree photos until October 😉 Love it!

    Love the peninsula as well… I always dismissed it but once I actually started hanging out there I realised how beautiful it really is.ReplyCancel

      Hahaha too true! It’s an obsession (read:sickness), I can’t help it! Promise will keep the baldies interesting.
      I only went to peninsula for kids’ play dates. They did have a big and good playground there. Only this morning I found out that playground was closed for refurbishment. Oh well, the surrounding is still pretty, happy to go back there for sure.ReplyCancel
