About twenty to thirty minutes drive from Geelong

is an area known as The Golden Plains

In early February the reason for its name hardly needs explaining.

Both grasses and paddocks have taken on

a dry golden hue as summer  is drawing to a conclusion.

Well in a few weeks it should be cooling.

I’m not sure if Picasa’s Heat Map pre-set actually show

the ‘hot’ areas of a photo, however,

this is a fair representation of hot and cool/cold areas

in this lansdscape today.

Hope you enjoyed.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Flying

My contribution for this week’s

Flying

 

All photos related to flying this week.shadow_0411

We are definitely airborne as our shadow shows

at Maun Airport, in Botswana.

We spent the next hour flying over the Okavango Delta.

Would love to return.

At Victoria Falls it was an optional extra to

climb aboard the helicopter to get this shot.

Not a very good shot of a helicopter over Corio Bay.

No need to ring 000 or 911, this is garden art near Geelong.

Have often suggested that we have one in our front yard,

but hardly get the words out before

a resounding ‘No!‘ is heard. 😀

Finally, this ‘shot from the hip, which turned out

much better than it should  have.

This helicopter was relaying the Cadel Evans Bike Race

back to a television studio which then

broadcast the images to a world-wide audience, so I was told.

Google tells me it was broadcast to these countries.

Britain, Eurosport Player (online), Africa (Live),

Belgium (L), Portugal (L), Japan, France,

Turkey and Eurosport Asia.
