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.

My first water scene is…

…nearby Lal Lal Falls.

In 2014 we visited Victoria Falls

in Zimbabwe .

Four years later, it was Alberta’s,

Athabasca Falls In Canada.

For 55 years lived less than an hour

from Warrnambool’s, Hopkins Falls.

The only time I remember visiting these falls was

when number one Son wanted some photos

for a geography assignment I set his class, in 2003.

As it was a February/March assignment,

there was little or no water flow.

  I had to wait another fifteen years and drive two hours

from Geelong to capture this photo.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Raining

~~~~~

Summer rain…

…before and…

 

…after editing.

We have recorded 365 points of rain for April

and 10 inches for the year so far.

We only recorded around 20 inches of rain

for all of 2019.

Hopkins Falls after winter rains.

Hopkins Falls is near Warrnambool,

in Victoria’s South-West,

and was our shopping centre

while living on the farm.

…with angry seas.

from this season’s forest cleanup.

The sun is original.

All other parts of the image

have been lightened a tad.

 

…nature’s jewels.

Colourful nature.
