Scenic Sunday - Selovers Lookout

Scenic Lookout
In the forested mountains a few kms past Healesville on the way to the Black Spur is Selovers Lookout. You can see the Maroondah Reservoir. I was there last Sunday - ever stood on a mountain and sung at the top of your lungs? It's a great feeling. Christmas carols blaring from the CD, I stood here and belted out the "Gloria In Excelsis Deo" from Angels We Have Heard On High. (I've also danced on the side of a mountian while singing ABBA!)


"Dance like no one is watching. Sing like no one is listening. Love like you've never been hurt and live like it's heaven on Earth."
— Mark Twain

I haven't been standing on a mountain singing at the top of my lungs, but now and then I scream at the top of my lungs. ;) My kids drives me insane now and then and that's one of the reasons I love them so much! :D

I like your pic, beautiful, I'm tired of snow and having so cold weather.

This is a beautiful view; I'm loving summer shots right now!
Thanks for the visit!

Very beautiful place and nicely captured. Gotta get there sometime!

Never sung or danced on a mountain, but I'll remember that for next time :) when there's no one around!

Thanks for the visit

It's cold and rainy here today, so this sunny, warming image is welcome!

What a beautiful spot. It actually reminds of Vermont, a little, though we are not all sunny and warm now as this image suggests you are.

Ah, a beatiful sight for us soggy, wet, snow covered and rained on New Englanders.
