Trees and Some Valley Vistas









I went for a walk this evening, around 6pm as I wanted to capture some photos of the valley and the trees before the sun had set. I spotted a few good vantage places yesterday afternoon but when I arrived there today someone had parked their car and boat trailer where I would have been able to get the best photo. So I climbed over the railing to get a better view, not much space to move around without falling and not exactly what I had wanted but OK I guess; sometimes we have to compromise when faced with unwanted obstacles ... I should have climbed on top of the roof of his car, then I would have really been able to get the photo I was hoping for, but I don't think the owner would have been impressed. I hope you like these, it was still very warm, the sky was a soft grey, not much blue to be seen and in some of the pics you can almost see the mist rising from the valley floor.
Some photos were taken with my cell phone camera as my camera battery went flat, maybe not a good day for photographs after all ... ♥

Thanks justsomethoughts ,
pleased that you liked the pictures and I did actually think of climbing on the car but thought no I wouldn't like someone to climb on my car. xo ♡
Nice to see you again.

Thank you dear Maha
I am pleased that you liked the photos ... I could try to get some night photos,I don't know how well they would turn out,I would have to use the flash on my camera.
I don't really like wandering through the bush on my own at night...lots of places that you can fall and too many unfriendly snakes. xo ♡

Thank you dear Ruela
so pleased that you like the trees, I am surrounded by trees like this and valleys, the air is so fresh, I am very fortunate.
Always nice to see you. xo ♡

Thanks Foamy dear,
now if I was more organised I would have had my camera with me the day before and then I would have been able to get the picture that I was hoping for.
Yes I could have climbed on the car but as I said before I wouldn't like someone to climb on my car...but he could have parked in a more appropriate place. :) xo ♡

nice pictures Dianne,
i think u shud have climbed on the car..it wud have given a better and beautiful view of valley..
i loved the shape of trees in the third pictures..
take care

dianne said...

Thanks Shweta dear,
no I wouldn't climb on someone's car, that would be irresponsible ...
I will get a valley photo from some other vantage point ...
This area here where I have taken the photos drops away fairly quickly although it does not seem that evident.
There are many lovely shapes of trees and so many different leaf shapes and shades of green.
take care xo ♡

Thanks dear chickory , I'm so pleased that you enjoyed the photos...there are so many more beautiful places that I have yet to photograph.

You have a knack for these types of pictures. I always seem to get the homeless guy relieving himself.

dianne said...

Puggles my sweet, I love taking photos of trees, I like being surrounded by trees and the beautiful flora.
When I first moved here it was quite desolate, not many houses at all, there were some homeless men who lived in the valley, they sheltered in the caves...one in particular would come and look in my door because I had no fences no blinds or curtains, he startled me at first but after a while I knew he was no threat, I would say hello and he would just look and move on, he never spoke, just gave me a nod. xo ♡
