A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Birds

~~~~~~

I haven’t taken bird photos for a while so

some may seem familiar.

A Pacific Gull

 

Cape Barren Goose

Cape Barren Goose.

 

A couple of years ago I visited Sydney and found

this Australian white Ibis enjoying the

comforts of the El Alamein Fountain

at King’s Cross, on a hot December day.

A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Mountain

~~~~~~

Two ‘mountains’ I have passed countless times

while driving to Melbourne and Geelong

when I lived on the farm.

Mount Shadwell at Mortlake.

Mortlake claims to be the Olivine (Peridot)

Capital of the Australia.

Whereas Mount Elephants claim to fame is that,

if you use you imagination,

that it looks like the upper portion of an elephant.

I saw a photo a few weeks ago,

taken from the other side.

Looks nothing like an elephant.

Oh! Well! 😦

Nearly forgot…these ‘Mountains’

are only several hundred feet high,

but they are quite noticeable landmarks

in Western Victoria which once was

a hot bed of active volcanoes.

These volcanic cones is all that remains

of that point in time.

A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Aquamarine

~~~~~~

I don’t know how I missed… 

the Aquamarine challenge.

 

I quickly remembered photos…

which my eyes tell me are good for the post.

All photos taken at Torquay,

near Bell’s Beach, which is where the

Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach,

World Surf League Championship

is held each Easter.

In a dry hot climate that we live in we see this red colour

quite often, particularly during summer.

However, on a canal in Venice it seemed out of place.

So much water…

One of the many tourist vessels on the Grand Canal.

Tourist Gondolas.

On a dry day in Murano I suspect

these boats may be more active.

A Yacht or a Boat?

Big enough for the latter…though

I suspect it may be the former.
