While here in Australia, I have a nice walk to work each day.
Here is my view as I leave my apartment each morning. Across the street is a large shopping centre. Luckily, there is some nice landscaping so I am not simply looking at a large building and parking garage. You do get some perspective as to how tall the trees are though.
I will usually see some black-shouldered lapwings (Vanellus novaehollandiae) as I walk to work. There is a pair that is nesting near the sidewalk about half way up the hill. This morning I took a break to take a few pictures.
This morning as I waited for the light to change so I could cross the street to my office I took a picture of the other side of the street. I really like the tall trees in this picture. The trees are so tall and majestic. Here the tallest tree is the height of a six to seven story building.
The walk to work is quite a trek since it is uphill most of the way. Of course that means that going back to the apartment is mostly downhill 🙂
It is definitely easier to walk back in the afternoon.
Do you have an uphill walk to work?
