The Gallery - A beautiful city

Joining Sticky Fingers for The Gallery... the theme this week is Green.


This is the city in which I live. 

It's a stunning view of Canberra, taken from Mount Ainslie and overlooking the Parliamentary Triangle. 

Straight ahead at the bottom of the photo, you can see the Australian War Memorial, with the red gravel median along Anzac Parade leading to Lake Burley Griffin. 

Across the lake, the grassy area of Reconciliation Place leads up to Old Parliament House, and behind you can just see the tall flagpole atop Parliament House. 

Along the lake foreshore is the National Gallery, The High Court, Questacon and the National Library. On the left is Kings Avenue Bridge, with The National Carillon beside it on Aspen Island. 

On the right is Commonwealth Avenue Bridge, with the Captain Cook Memorial Jet shooting high in the air. 

I took this photo eight years ago in 2005, and the view hasn't changed a bit between then and now. It is truly a beautiful city. 

Come and visit!
