In the late afternoon we walked around Lake Daylesford, past a gushing waterfall to the completely still lake. What really struck me when looking at the lake, was the contrast between the native bush of the Wombat Forest on one side, and the bright green leaves of the European trees on the other.
We came back to the lake on the next day before we left for home. The wind had picked up turning the lake into a mass of ripples. Water birds were everywhere along the shore. We saw Dusky Moorhens, white ducks, ducks with beautiful iridescent green heads and the stunning black Australian swan. I was lucky enough to snap a photograph of a swan spreading it’s wings and rising out the water. Beautiful and strong at the same time.
