Sunshine on a stick

We spied this row of Poplars from the main road into Tenterfield and went looking for them, hoping they lined a road. Alas no, they line an edge of the golf course instead.

Initially the sun was hiding behind that large cloud there and the colours were flat and uninteresting, but just as I was giving up hope, out it popped and so did the colour.

    Very nicely seen and composed Dave... besides all the Acacia species... we also have plenty of poplars here in South Africa... and they're also starting to turn golden now... no wonder there are so many SAfricans living in Australia... that place looks just like home! :)

    There are definitely a lot of similarities in the countryside Paul. A few more odd and dangerous animals here though ;-)
    I guess the Europeans liked Poplars and spread them around when they settled.

    We spied the line of trees and went looking for them. Still lots of places we didn't get to though.

    Beautiful use of the autumn evening light.

    Thanks :) Bit of a rarity in Australia, as most native trees are green all year 'round and don't lose their leaves.
    Ah, but it wasn't really evening, this is 1:25pm
