Ironbark Lake, Ponds | Sydney Suburb

Ponds is a suburb in Sydney (NSW, Australia), about 40 km from the CBD. The residential area is fairly new, with beautiful parks and a huge artificial lake called Ironbark Lake. The lake, which was originally a farm dam, has a walkway around it, a playground for toddlers and seating areas to watch the beautiful colors of sunset reflect on the water surface. You will also find a lot of birdlife like wood ducks swimming in the lake.

Here are some of the pictures I had taken on different visits.

  3. The photos are all like picture postcards, Raj. The one with you in it is lovely. How wonderful to see places thousands of miles away through your pictures. I can imagine how soothing it would be to sit and watch the water and the ducks.

  4. Your photos look like paintings. Particularly the last one. It’s wonderful to capture the same site in different seasons – it looks like a different place!

  10. Great to see you back with all these beautiful views for All Seasons! Many thanks for linking:) How is the New year treating you? Totally forgot you lived in Australia. How far are you living from the fires? Do they have any impact, where you live? Hoping you live in a safe area! Have a beautiful week!

    1. We were safe from fire but it was very smoky. Couldn’t even go to our backyard. And the heatwaves didn’t help either. Its getting better now. Thank you for asking. 😊

      1. I know how people feel surrounded by big fires, because I have been in that same situation, and even though it may not touch your house, it’s a lot more stressful than others know!
