Le fleuve d'Adelaïde s'appelle le Torrens


Le fleuve d'Adelaïde s'appelle le Torrens. C'est seulement un petit fleuve, mais il a un barrage qui tient l'eau derrière.
En décembre, nous nous assiérons sur les pelouses une nuit chaude et écouter l'orchestre de symphonie d'Adelaïde jouant du Noël chante.

Adelaide's river is called the Torrens.
It is only a small river, but we have a weir that holds the water back.
In December, we'll sit on the lawns on a hot night and listen to the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra playing Christmas Carols.

C'est étrange de penser que des gens fêtent Noël en été quelque part dans le monde !

Marie said...

La photo est très jolie et j'en aime la composition.

The funny thing is, Marie, that one of our favourite Christmas Carols is;

'Dashing through the snow, in a one-horse open sleigh'.

This is a city that has never seen snow, ever !!

Pensez-vous qu'il y aura de neige à Montpellier à Noël ?
Moi, c'est difficile d'imaginer. Je n'en ai aucune idée.

What a lovely park, Monsieur B.
That's a spiffy building in the distance. What is it?

M.Benaut said...

Bonjour, Dive,

This is the Adelaide Convention Centre.

Nice!

Kate said...

There is so many interesting objects in this photo, and you composed it very well. The scrolls on the railing are simply lovely.

Gypsy said...

That is a great pic of the Torrens and I also love the scrolls on the railing. Very nice Monsieur B.

Marie said...

Oh non, il n'y a jamais de neige à Montpellier. Ou si rarement.... En ce moment je n'allume pas le chauffage, même pour prendre ma douche !

Odysséum est à une quinzaine de minutes de chez moi à pied, maximum.

what a lovely shot, i love the pattern and the colours, so vibrant!

Marie,
Maintenant je sais pourquoi il y a une Avenue Marie de Montpellier.
Vous marchez si rapidement, qu'ils ont appelé une rue dans votre honneur.

Kate,
This is the ancient bandstand in Elder Park, it's about 150 years old. In the distance, is the new Adelaide Convention Centre.
There's a web address in a comment above, (to Dive).

Gypsy,
Thank you for your nice comments today and in the last few days.
The Stirling market is held once a month and the next one is just before Christmas; possibly the 16th Dec.

Jazzy,

You have some snow at the moment, but we don't ever see it here. It must be pretty cold in Tuzla. I am sure you'll have a white Christmas. Thank you for visiting us.

Whoa, what great colours - the green of the grass and the green scrolls on the railings - and the blue of the water, sky and dark blue on the railings, not to mention the greeny/blue building - such a nice photo. I agree with Kate, beautiful composition.

Is that a houseboat on the water?

Dear Prudence said...

That sounds so strange, "In December, we will sit on the lawns on a hot night"... funny to us Northerners. Beautiful landscape too.

Très belle photo M.Benaut ! j'en aime bien les couleurs. Tu avais souhaité me voir me baigner en vacances, cherche sur mon blog demain. Noël en été ! Quel rêve !

Looks so peaceful and the carols must be wonderful.

What a beautiful park! I really like how the black iron cathes the eye.
I wish I lived somewhere where I could listen to the symphony in December outside. It is way too cold here.
