Colour me [autumn] happy

Mt Lofty Botanic Gardens

After that wonderful autumn weather in the last two weeks, this long weekend has marked the record books. Yet again another weather phenomenon for Adelaide. According to Weatherzone, today's bitterly cold winds, cloud and showers have made this the coldest April day in 26 years for Adelaide and the coldest on record for several inland towns. The rains were also the most widespread and heaviest in more than five months. The highest rainfall since December, it should be good and timely for the sowing of winter crops.

However, last weekend was just perfect weather for taking pictures and honing some skills in landscape photography. With a couple of friends, we headed off to Mount Lofty Botanic Gardens and tried to capture some autumn images. The autumn colours of the Adelaide Hills were just wonderful.
