Canberra in the autumn

I'm cheating slightly; these images were taken a couple of years ago at around this time (my youngest brother, in the fog of the first photo, is much larger and man-like -- they grow up so quickly!). But the fact remains that I love Canberra in the autumn. Blue skies, a slight (or major) chill in the air and falling leaves.

I've been in Canberra visiting my family this weekend. It's been lovely, and it's given me a small break, away from my life, to re-stock and quietly re-examine where I am in that life.

On top of that, obviously, I've been able to spend some time with my much-loved family, which is always a very worthy way to spend my weekend!

And so I feel (just vaguely) re-invigorated, after a week of busy-ness and exhaustion. I might even be ready for my thirteen hour day tomorrow!


  1. we used to live in Canberra too - it is beautiful in autumn - (we had an autumn wedding) ~sigh :)

  2. Awww now I kind of miss home.

  3. oh im jealous. i want to spend some time with my family too! its so nice to feel reinvigorated after a weekend away!

    canberra looks so nice, i love the falling leaves and the bare trees. here comes winter!

  4. Love winter in every countries. The crisp blue sky and the first inhale of the cold air in the lungs are energising.
