Autumn Leaves – Southern Highlands Magic

By Gordon

Autumn is one of my favourite times of year. The first bites of the cold herald the coming of winter and hopefully the snow that I might have time to enjoy. We don’t get a wonderful autumn in Sydney, but if you head south to Mittagong and Bowral, the colours and leaves abound.

Having a new camera to play with, I was as excited as a kid in a candy store to have a play amongst the leaves and the trees. Shooting from a variety of different perspectives a perfect  colour spectrum enchants you , from a verdant green, through a plethora of yellows, oranges and reds, all the way to a vibrant purple. I hope you enjoy.

About Gordon Eckel

Gordon Eckel, a foodie and (rock) wall climber extraordinaire. He worked in some of Sydney’s top restaurants, but decided that he liked cooking for his friends more, so ran away and joined the circus (aka managing Sydney nightclubs). Six years ago and after a few too many creamy pastas he weighed 105 kg with a ridiculously high cholesterol. He changed his eating ways, wore out a treadmill and dropped 25 kilos in three months. Now he is renown for cooking deceptively healthy food and for proselytizing about the marvels of the great Australian red.
