Number 20: Caught in the ACT at Commonwealth Place
The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) is the nation’s capital region, similar to the District of Columbia in the United States. In the city of Canberra on the south shore of Lake Burley Griffin, Commonwealth Place forms a part of the axis between the Australian War Memorial to the northeast and the Australian Parliament to the southwest. Commonwealth Place is surrounded by the National Library of Australia, Reconciliation Place, the High Court of Australia, and the National Gallery of Australia. On a beautiful late-winter afternoon, the late-day sun bathed the Australian War Memorial and Mount Ainslie in warm colours, as joggers, bicyclists and pedestrians lined the paths on both sides of the lake.
I made the photos above on 4 September 2012. This post appears on Fotoeins WIDE at fotowide.wordpress.com.
