It’s raining

This morning I ventured out into the rain for a leisurely walk to take some pictures. It was just a drizzle and absolutely calm. I was able to walk with an umbrella without having to fear that some nasty wind would rip it apart. The bush smelled lovely after being slowly soaked with beautiful warm rain. Yes, it’s still in the low twenties, Celsius I mean. For me this is still a very pleasantly wet summer day.

And then I walked back via Lakelands Park.

Brooks Creek 'flows' along beside the wooded area on this side of Lakelands Park. Someone tried to build an access here for walking down to the creek.

    1. Too right, it is a window to the world, isn’t it?
      I am glad we have now this change in this weather! ­čÖé
      Still, it’s only January. Some more heatwaves might still come our way.

  1. Although it’s raining outside Uta , you captured the day beautifully. Brooks Creek looks very relaxing even in the rain.
    Take care and enjoy that clean fresh air.

    1. I find this warm summer rain quite enjoyable, Sheila. Brooks Creek doesn’t really look much like a creek at the moment. A lot of plants grow in it and do not let the water run through freely anymore.
      I love the smell of the bush after it has been raining a bit.

    1. I love taking pictures while I am walking, Gerard. Makes my walks quite interesting for I look at things I would otherwise perhaps not take so much notice of. I do not mind a bit of rain, especially in summer. At the moment I do not fear that our grass might dry out. ­čÖé

  2. Danke liebe Ute f├╝r deinen Besuch so sch├Âne Bilder,war bestimmt eine sch├Âne Wanderung ein sch├Ânes St├╝cken Erde,da k├Ânnte ich mir vorstellen auch zu Wandern.Ich hoffe das es dir gut geht,wir haben hier in K├Âln Freuhlingsafte Temperaturen heute war es 13 Grad warm fast wie Fr├╝hling.Ich w├╝nsche dir noch eine gl├╝ckliche Zeit.Liebe Gr├╝├če Gislinde

    1. Danke, liebe Gislinde. Es war eigentlich mehr wie ein kleiner Spaziergang. Heute morgen gleich nach dem Aufstehen machte ich wieder so einen Spaziergang. Ich ging den gleichen Weg entlang, aber diesmal etwas schneller. Ich f├╝hlte mich voller Energie und brauchte zwischendurch ├╝berhaupt keine Pausen machen. Irgendwie ging es mit meinem Atem viel besser als sonst. Es war immer noch recht feucht, Temperatur 20 Grad Celsius. Liebe Gr├╝sse, Uta.

    1. Linda, yes, we did have a bit of heat before it rained, but where we live there was no smoke, none whatsoever. So our air is clean and beautiful fresh with that bit of rain we have at the moment.

      I hope the cooler temperatures and maybe some rain, where there are still a lot of fires, is going to keep all the fires under control. The fires are many miles away from us, but still they stretch over vast areas in several states of Australia. There are literally still hundreds of fires burning. Fires like this usually last for many weeks!
