Although traffic is extremely limited

around our farm, it was still amazing

how much of the outside world

our trees soon blocked out.

With a reduction in noise

wildlife soon moved in.

I only ever sighted kangaroos.

However the harvesting team

had to leave some trees to cater

for koalas which they sighted.

From whence they came I do not know.

 

 

There is an inland road to the

Great Ocean Road

via the township of Forest.

The rest of my photos are images taken

during several drives to Forest and beyond.

 

Although my photo does not do it justice

this off the main road spot is gorgeous.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Unbreakable

~~~~~

~~~~~

unbreakable

not liable to break or able to be broken easily.

~~~~~

I always thought the Twelve Apostles

to be unbreakable until

London Bridge

collapsed in the 1990s. In July 2005 the Apostle that now is a pile of stone

on the right (in water) also collapsed.

Experts said, at the time, that

the Apostles would reappear.

My thinking is that it won’t be overnight 🙂

Lens-Artist-PC-104-Summer

~~~~~

Last summer was a bad summer

for fires in Australia.

However, there is rarely a summer when

we don’t have scenes like this

by fires somewhere in our dry land.

 

January 4th, 2013.

Loch Ard Gorge was the end of our

Great Ocean Road drive

with some Canadian friends.

At around 44/111 degrees C/F

the car park was literally

melting under our feet.

Manly Beach in early December/Summer.

Travel through rural areas in late summer

and you are more than likely to see

this scene repeated regularly.

Cropping stubble has been burned

to facilitate easier sewing to winter crops.

Strangely I thought this practise had died out

in favour of direct drilling and leaving

the stubble to help protect the soil

from wind or water erosion.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Cove

cove

a small sheltered bay.

~~~~~

Possibly…

…the most famous cove in Australia…

 

…Loch Ard Gorge near the western,

or Warrnambool, end of

The Great Ocean Road.

The only two survivors of the wrecked Loch Ard

were washed into the Gorge

on the stormy night the Loch Ard ran aground.

Lens-Artist-PC-100-Long-Winding-Road

~~~~~

This would be nearly as long a piece

of straight road as you would find in

the Great Ocean Road area.

 

 

Even on a quiet day it only takes one

overly cautious driver to have traffic

bumper to bumper.

 

Along winding walk down into the Ruakuri Cave

at Waitomo Glow Worm Caves

New Zealand.

 

And there is only one entry/exit,

so another long winding walk

up to ground level.

RyanPhotography-WeeklyPC-69-Waves

~~~~~~

There are many types of ‘waves’,

however, I am sticking with

my most photographed waves.


Some smallish waves near Gibson steps

which are near the Twelve Apostles. 

The rest of this week’s images were taken near…

…or at, Torquay beaches.

 

The waves were important in as much as…

 

 

 

…they gave my subjects…

 

 

…somewhere to play.

One of my favourite photos,

although I don’t think the surfer

would agree it was his best moment.
