Autumn colours…

Its getting cold here now – it’s been about 6 degrees Celcius for a week or more. (That is about 42 F for those of you who use that nomenclature.) That is cold for me! However, the lovely autumn colours begin to show.

I like this photo and I hope someone decides to paint it.

Art in the Park…

Is held at the Hillside Dams every year, around about this time. Anyone can exhibit and this year, colourful tents added to the very colourful paintings (and other artwork.)

Luckily the wind didn’t come up this year! Large canvases act as sails in high wind!

And this last one (below) is interesting. Its a pity the light was just too strong – but I still like it, and especially in black and white.

The rains…

As Matabeleland awaits the rains, it gets hot. Very hot. Even the wind is hot! Tar melts, the skies are relentlessly blue, and yet the trees have enough energy to bring out new leaves and flowers.

This pic below was taken on the last day of August:

The red colour are the calyces  – turning yellow within a month:

Both these pics are taken at much the same time of the day, and from the same rocky outcrop.
