Saturday Snapshot - Oberon


My husband & I recently travelled to Oberon for a sailing regatta.
Sydney had just had it's hottest day in recorded history.
But our weekend in Oberon (just a 2 hour drive away) featured rain, wind and fog!


Lake Oberon Regatta




The drive home through the Blue Mountains was very atmospheric!
And very un-summery.

  1. You can always rely on Oberon to be cold! And the mountains to be unpredictable. I was somewhat startled by your sentence about travelling to Oberon for sailing.... That first photo is particularly gorgeous.

    1. Ha ha! When my BIL invited us to the Oberon regatta we were a little unsure too!! But the dam is rather beautiful when full and hosting a flotilla of boats.

  6. The mountains are lovely to me even if it's not sunny. Where I live it's all flat land and prairies.

  7. Fantastic photos! I think the third is my favorite as it is just so evocative an image. One can't help but wonder where that road leads and I love that spot of yellow on the sign. Any of these would be great writing prompts. I agree with Laurel; I appreciate your sharing your beautiful part of the world. A knock out!

  12. Wow! I love the first and third shots! That curvy road is almost surreal with the backdrop of the hills and fog and I love the greys and whites of the lake shot with that reflection of the tree! Awesome!
