An old favourite

I was sorting out some images this afternoon, when I came across this image I add taken a few years ago.  And given that this is the first post of the official Australian winter it feels like an appropriate find.

This was taken on a chill, but bright morning at Wilsons Promontory National Park.  The last time we were there this section of boardwalk had been washed away in a flood, so it may not be possible to see this exact scene again.

We dont get a huge number of frosts in Melbourne - so seeing one is a nice novelty.



You can find more macro shots at I Love Macro and at the all new Macro Monday 2.

Pop over and have a look!

Neat shot. Happy to say that summer has arrived here in the States. Enjoy your winter Stewart.

You're right, I don't exactly think of frost and Melbourne at one and the same time. :-)

As you head into Winter we head into Summer. I hope both journeys will be pleasant ones. MB

I had to look twice at the frost. I do not want to see it here for a long time. Next texture shot, Stewart!

I like it, for those of us from the N.Hemisphere, frost is a joy to see, especially 'occasionally'. In the early 50s, we had a really good snowfall and were allowed out of school to experience the rarity. Unfortunately,as it was so rare, most of the children saw snow for the first snd last time in their lives and had no idea what to do with it, unlike those of us who had grown up with long harsh winters and snowball fights that kept us warm just by trying to dodge them.

An interesting place to find the frost and a big smile on my face to find someone that finds it a novelty.

Frost is an image I could happily do without for the rest of my life, but your picture is lovely.

I went to Wiki last year to try to figure out why your winter doesn't start on the exact same day as our summer (June 20) and vice-versa. I understood it then. But now I've forgotten!

I like the close up of the frost Stewart. It was in the mid 90's in my part of the world. I like the cold myself enjoy winter. :)

Frost, huh? Nice image. The fence makes for a great graphical statement.

We are just getting started with summer, so won't see frost for a time.
Love this shot, the composition is great!

Not only the frost, but the contrasting shapes and textures are also great.
