Blue Hour at
Softly, softly on Corio Bay
Friday, March 12,
Most of my MCoW entries have focussed on
and around the Geelong area.
Warrnambool’s forecast population for 2021, is 37,225.
This is expected to increase by 15-20,000 tourists
during the Christmas – January school holiday period.
Although COVID may impact that figure this year.
Warrnambool is situated right on the
Victoria’s South West Coast
Bass Strait making a nice backdrop
in this image.
Public transport train services connect
Warrnambool to Geelong and Melbourne.
Sundown at Geelong…
….followed by another glorious sunrise…
… on Griffin Gully Pier.
The last two images were taken…
…from our front yard.
Early morning at Geelong’s
Similar shot; cropped sharpened, straightened,
colours inverted and boosted in Picasa..

The Eastern Beach sidewalk…
…used by walkers…
…or watching the world pass by
while feeding the birds…
…or walking with family and friends,
or walking to sunbake.
This week I decided on a walk around Corio Bay.
Many images have been published previously,
however, not all on one post.
Beginning at my favourite sunrise spot,
Griffin Gully Pier.

Blue hour at Geelong.
Lights on the left light up the restaurant
at the end of Cunningham Pier.

Entrance to Cunningham Pier.
My photo may not do this scene justice, however,
I think this is one of the prettiest parts of Geelong.
No matter what time of day or season
of the year I always think it worth a stop
for an image or two.
Around 200 metres past Cunningham Pier
we come upon the Geelong Ferris Wheel.
The Ferris Wheel does not operate all year.
In fact it is only a few weeks since it
was erected for the summer.
The Ferris Wheel is located at the western end
of Eastern Beach which is located behind
the camera and to the left of this shot.
Eastern Beach, a nice sandy beach for the young.
The semi-circle out into the bay according to Google
is the Eastern Beach Public Swimming Pool.
All my life I thought it was called the Promenade.
Whatever its name there area is designed
to be family friendly.
