Sunset over the neighbours trees.


A harvest sunset

Sunrise on Corio Bay.

At sunrise the temperature was 1 degree Celsius

and the water appears to boil.

Just before sunup June 19, 2020

My favorite from my last two sunrise shoots.

Blue Hour

Friday June 05…

…I have been told that the colour

is ‘not right‘ in this image.

However, it is a straight out of camera image,

with shooting details as follows.

Camera: Nikon D750

Lens: Nikon 28-300mm

Focal Length: 32mm

Shutter Speed: 1/4sec


ISO: 100

Time: 0701 hours

Sunrise: 0732 hours

I could have made the aperture larger

and/or the shutter speed slower.

I’m going to start and finish this week’s post

with 2020 images from Corio Bay’s

Griffin Gully Jetty,

my favourite spot

to spend some morning time…

…and watch the sun rise…

…or sometimes not.

It is also a good spot for some…

…Blue hour photography.


This image is enlarged to about 75-90 cm wide.

Thought I may have sold a copy

while displaying it a few years ago.

Alas the bloke simply raved

(several times) that it was a photo

then walked away.



Another of the, or not,

(watch the sun rise) mornings.



There is a degree of sameness about these images,

however, I think they are all different

and have appeal…


…which is probably why I am not an artist 🙂

As promised at the top…

…my final image is of a February 2020

pre lock down fog in living colour.

Another which I like but the rest of

the world does not,

if votes are

anything to go by.  🙂

My favourite places.

Locally it has to be Griffin Gully Pier

over looking Geelong’s

Corio Bay.

I missed out on visiting Butchart Gardens in 1976.

The wait was long but certainly worth it

when we visited in 2018.


Accommodation during my 1976 visit to Banff

consisted of a sleeping bag and a small tent.

Forty-two years later and a lot more comfort

and more memories
