Before my trip to Australia, a friend who had been there described the golden light.
Here in the Pacific Northwest, the light can best be described as pearly.
A sort of silvery blueish greyish cast over everything.
The contrast was absolutely striking to me.
I felt as though it were The middle of October - which is our only golden time.
Here, it's only the season of the turning color of leaves and bright sunshine that gives everything a golden bath of light.
July in Australia is the dead of winter for them.
But the light is golden and warm and alive.
These pictures were taken at a very old seaside cemetery south of Bondi Beach in Sydney.
The sky is an amazing blue.
The statuary shows off the golden and warm sun.
See if you can find the moon in two of the pictures ....
