Driving through beauty

My place in time #49 - I had to stop the car to take a photo

I don't know about you, but I love beautiful scenery as I drive. Little snippets of charm to break up the drive. 

Yesterday Summer and I went for a drive to Penola. We had an awesome day. 

In these parts there are quite often trees lining the roadsides that tower of the road and meet in the middle. 

This is just a couple of those, if I had of stopped to take photos of all the beautiful scenes it would have taken me all day to get there and home. Not to mention, standing on the road isn't the safest place to spend a lot of time! 





The turn to the left goes to Kalangadoo. This is where I grew up. I have youthful memories of this avenue. The sunlight flickering through the trees as we drove through. I think it's beautiful. It is beautiful. We came through here a little over a week ago, leaves blew around as the car swept through. The weather has been wild the last week and the leaves have just about gone. I will have to capture this avenue when the leaves have returned.

    1. I have been making a point of pulling over when I see something worth photographing. Too many times I have just kept driving and kicked myslef later on. No time like the present!

    1. Everytime I drove through here I would always think, I have to stop and take photos and never did. I am glad I stopped, but was so conscious of not getting myself run over too!
