Different Points of View


That’s Perth above, as seen from Kings Park, with the CBD on the left and the Narrows Bridge and Old Swan Brewery on the right. But since the Swan Coastal Plain is rather flat, you can see Perth from many different parts of the metropolitan area.

Can you figure where these three photos were taken? One hint: They are in the order of increasing distance from the city centre.

So, how many could you recognise? The second photo from the top was taken from Lake Monger (5km from CBD) on a rainy day. The one above is from Herdsman Lake (6km), and the one below from Bold Park (8km).

Winter Wildflowers 4


Here are three more wildflowers that you can see in Perth’s Bold Park at present.

The pale pink flowers up top are Diplopeltis huegelii (no common name, as far as we know) and the deep red flowers above are Cockies Tongue (Templetonia retusa). The flowers below are Yellow Tailflower (Anthrocercis littorea). All are native to Western Australia.

Ocean Sunset

We were at Perth’s City Beach on Monday evening and watched the sunset over the Indian Ocean.

It wasn’t one of those dramatic sunsets, where the whole sky turns bright red/pink. But the changing colours and moods as the sunlight faded were still quite striking.
