Hopkins Falls

Hopkins-Falls_0724

A few weeks ago I traveled to what once

was a relatively nearby waterfall…

Hopkins-Falls_0717

Hopkins Falls on the Hopkins River.

I wasn’t really happy with any of the photos.

I tried a slow shutter speed here,

but too much water for that silky look

that many waterfall photos have.

Hopkins-Falls_0745

I used to live with in 50 kilometres of this water fall

and only visited it one less than a handful of occasions,

and never with this much water flowing.

So…it looks like back to the drawing board

as far as photographing waterfalls is concerned.

 ~~~~~~

Enjoy.

Black and White Tuesday

 August 22, 2016

~~~~~

Some Black and Whites from this morning.

reflections_0123

Playing with reflections.



reflection_0123

The correct view.

reflections_0125

I think this shot looks  better upside down, than…

reflection_0125

it does the right way up!🙂

I think the inverted shots

(those which appear to be right way up),

could pass for old BW photos, or….

maybe it’s my eyes at the end of a long day.

Commencing with one…

sunrise_0013

of our sunrises, thanks to our eastern facing windows.

First time I have lived in a house which can see the sun rise

and to a lesser degree set.

sunset_7689

A Moorabool Valley sunset from last year.

The cropped and enhanced version of above.

storm-clouds_8338

These storm clouds flooded Geelong earlier this year.

Twenty minutes before the storm hit, Number 2 son drove

through an underpass which was seen with cars

floating along the street on the television that night.

lightning_3566

About 2300 hours…image illuminated by lightning.

Manly_Beach_0316

I have posted ‘crops’ of this image several times.

Manly Beach in beach weather.

Finally, one of my favourites.

I think the picture does the talking..

Odd Ball

Week 33, 2016

~~~~~

While responding to a comment from

Raewyn at decocraftsdigicrafts

this morning…

cactus_0955

I spoke of our dogs wrecking one of our succulents.

This plant used to have a right, or back, side as well!

cactus_0956

However, while taking this photo,

I noticed that the next succulent was missing

the opposite side.

cactus_0961

You can just imagine the charge around the corner,

taking out the first succulent,

jumping the next plant (maybe),

then wiping out the outside of the next succulent.

I really cannot wait for old age to set into these two…at the moment!
