Square Perspectives Photo Challenge ~ Australian Landscapes #6
Destination: Gan Gan Hill, New South Wales
From Gan Gan Lookout the views are spectacular. At an elevation of 160 metres, the vista extends past Soldiers Point, over to Tomaree Head and northwards across the water to Hawks Nest and Tea Gardens. The Karuah River estuary, larger in size but much shallower than Sydney Harbour, meets the Pacific Ocean between Tomaree Head and Yacaaba Head.
In spring the scenery is even better up at Gan Gan Lookout. Gymea lilies, native to the coastal regions around Sydney, grow in abundance on the slopes of Gan Gan Hill and as winter ends they begin to bloom. Spikes reaching up to 6 metres long are topped by clusters of delicate red flowers.
The lilies almost surpass the views!
While our travel plans are on hold I’m joining in every day with Becky’s July Square Perspectives Photo Challenge over at The Life of B. The rules are simple: photos must be square and fit the theme of perspective. My posts represent the definition of perspective as a vista – seeing something over distance or time.
