Torquay surf.


…seas at Torquay.

Near Torquay, I captured this wave as it broke

making it appear larger than it actually was.

This scarred African landscape depicts other Victoria Falls sites

created as the Zambezi River eroded away the rock face

of previous fall sites.


The Devil’s Cataract, in the foreground, and on

the Zimbabwean side of the Falls is said to be

where the current falls are beginning to erode

the rock face thereby creating a new Victoria Falls.

At 7cm per year, we will be visiting the current site

for many more years.


Mother nature appears to be holding the sun,

not wanting it to rise from the water.

A spectacular rural sunset.

I would really struggle to find any bikini-clad

sun lovers in Victoria this time of year.

However, I as in Switzerland’s Lake Lucerne

I’m sure there would be plenty

soaking up the sun as this group did.

outdoor fun

 existing, happening, or used outside,
not inside a building 


In pre-pandemic days I enjoyed…

…photographing surfers.

I say enjoyed because going to the beach…

…broke the 5-kilometre rule in force during the pandemic…

…which would have incurred…

…a fine of up to AUD$5,000 if caught breaching rules.

Come think of it there were probably very few surfers

who could legally surf during that period anyway.


Weekly Prompt Photo Challenge:…Outdoor-Fun





Commencing with…


…Moorabool Valley…


From Point Nepean with

Point Lonsdale Lighthouse

in the distance.

All shipping must negotiate the

narrow and shallow stretch

of water in between as they

enter and leave Port Phillip Bay.

I was so certain that we were approaching

a solid grey wall and very relieved

to discover it was the expected water

at Botswana’s

Nata Bird Sanctuary.

Rough seas 







Not my best surfing shot, however,

the sea was as rough as I have seen it

for a while.

Black and White Challenge.


Focussing mostly…


…on the sea this week.

With very peaceful sunrises…

…over Geelong’s

Corio Bay.

Even a relatively peaceful shot of

the area known as the Gibson steps…


…especially given that Bass Strait has a rough reputation.

And with weather coming directly from the polar ice cap

this past week has been a good week for ‘office work’.

Finally, two very calm and peaceful horses

Moorabool Valley










teal aqua

Teal is darker and more greenish-blue. 
Aqua is a lighter blue with some green.


Hopefully, I have managed…

to round up…



…enough images…



…showing signs…

…of teal and…

…or aqua.
