exposed to the possibility of being attacked or harmed,
either physically or emotionally.


All along Victoria’s, Shipwreck Coast, nature has

been hard at work eroding away coastal limestone

to create the 12 Apostles, Lochard Gorge and

London Bridge (now called London Arch)


Now, that same force of nature is working

to topple all of its hard work.

Around 25-30 years ago London Bridge

(now called London Arch) toppled

and detached from mainland Australia.

More recently another of the Apostles

fell victim to the ravages of Mother Nature…


…which is probably why we can no longer

walk out to the end of this Apostle.

…the limestone which makes up…


…the coastline along

Victoria’s South West Coast

including The Twelve Apostles

and Lochard Gorge.

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.

a small sheltered bay.



…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.





A Melbourne special spot is

the footbridge over the Yarra River.

The long sandstone building is…

Flinders Street Station where Melbournians

meet under the clocks.

The Twelve Apostles is one of my favourite spots,

which has unfortunately become too touristy for me.





Further west along the Great Ocean Road

is, Loch Ard Gorge.



At  sunrise only a few joggers, dog walkers

and photographers encroach on one’s space

at Geelong’s Griffin Gully Pier.
