20140607_6073231 To Everything There Is A Season (Sat 07 Jun 14)

Ebenezer Church, Hawkesbury Region (North West Of Sydney)

This was part of a weekend getaway, the first one not organised by me. The target was a charming little winery / B&B in the Hawkesbury Valley north west of Sydney, in a small town called Ebenezer. This area was quite fertile (unlike the area around the settlement in Sydney Harbour) and consequently was settled quite soon (relatively speaking) after the arrival of British colonists on 1788.

The Ebenezer (Presbyterian) church was built in 1809 and is the oldest surviving church in Australia. It also served as a school from 1810. The graveyard surrounding it is a mix of old and new, but the size of it is not huge given that the area has never been heavily populated.

This shot was taken just as the season had turned from autumn to winter in this part of the world. Many of the trees that were imported from the old country are now bare, some hanging onto the last of their brightly coloured autumn leaves.
