Idyllic Weekend (Weekend Reflections 35)

Created by James of Newtown Area Photo of Pennsylvania, USA.

"Discovering this idyllic place, we find ourselves filled with a yearning to linger here, where time stands still and beauty overwhelms." ~ Inspirational-Quotations.

Taken one weekend away for a quiet time in a quiet place from the window of a running train to Newcastle.

This is Hawkesbury River located north of Sydney and one of the most beautiful rivers in Australia. Its surrounding is pretty much a farming area and the river is flanked by unspoiled woodland and bush. Hawkesbury River played a vital role in the early colonization days of New South Wales especially in farming established by the First Settlers who came to Australia in 1794.

As you can see in the quiet reflection of this idyll scenery, peace prevails which makes an ideal pursuit away from an otherwise humdrum day.

I do love those watery reflections! And what a lovely, peaceful place! Terrific capture, Bonnie! Hope you have a great weekend!

Hi Bonnie. I love this beautiful shot. The lake and sky are wonderful but the reflection makes it amazing. I also like that I can see part of the train tracks.

Great title too.

That's so peaceful and serene!
Yes, I'm from Singapore while Ann is from New Zealand but she stayed in Singapore for a few years and I believe she still have some families here.
