Focusing on Autumn Details

Steer me to an autumn path to travel all alone. Fall leaves the finest company; rustling in my heart like home.” – Anonymous


Yesterday was a gorgeous day for a stroll in Mount Dandenong. As the leaves were falling on the quiet path that I wash taking … the leaves of ochre, brown, red and yellow were shimmering and I felt at home.

Lens Artist Photo Challenge – Focusing on the Autumn Details

Please click image to enlarge and see more details.


Amidst the manicured gardens of the Cloudehill Gardens in Monbulk Road in Olinda, you can see this sculpture by Mimovich Leopoldine which was carved from Huon Pine. Such beautiful delicate details of 3 female faces.

The garden seat that is located near the entry point with an excellent view of the garden. The details of the arm of the bench is quite extraordinary.


Ceramic details of man on one of the walls in the garden. Seems scary.


And these succulents … such simple products of nature but what beautiful details it has.


I think that this pot is made of clay and definitely is not lacking in details.


Only a few minutes drive from Cloudehill Gardens and Nursery is the Alfred Nicholas Gardens. This is known as the Sunken Garden and here you can see the details of the two cranes made of brass.

And finally…what amazing details in nature.

    Lovely tour of the beautiful gardens Teresa – and you are so right, the beauty is in the details – as well as the big picture! I must admit my favorite set of images is your collection from nature at the end of your post. What could be better than that?!
