What a Difference a Day Makes


Twenty four little hours....well in this case just slightly more. Yesterday while on my way to John's place for dancing shots I could not resist making an ever so short stop at Lake Monger to get this view. Lake Monger is not far from Perth and is a wonderful place to walk, jog or run on the pathway around the lake's perimeter. Yesterday was warm and sunny with no wind. A superb autumn day to be out and about in Perth. 

Today however has been a different story. Driving back though South Perth I was taken by the contrast between yesterday and today and how the city looked against the backdrop of these different waterways. 

The image below was taken from South Perth overlooking the Swan River towards Perth city. While afternoon clouds threatened rain, there was nothing to speak of at least where I was. With darkening clouds this evening tomorrow could tell yet another story.

  2. That first shot is a delight, Rae, and the contrast between the two of interest to someone who thinks that the weather and the blueness of the skies over Perth never seem to vary. But then again, I only ever visited your city during the summer holidays!

    But the perspective, the composition and the colours of that top shot is spot on. Remind me a bit of the shots of our CBD from Watsons' Bay.

  3. The first photo is a treat to the eyes and the second photo makes for a wonderful comparison. Both are magnificent shots though.

  7. Love that you can see a glimpse of the city in the left hand corner of the first shot Rae, and the second is gorgeous with the ferry just coming into the shot off to the right. Wonder how the weather will develop over the weekend.

  8. Two great shots for contrasting reasons, Rae. I'm surprised to say I think I prefer the bottom one!
