I decided to stick to Aussie favourites for his week’s challenge.

Griffin Gully Pier with the sky colours reflected in the water.

Again reflections and colours.

The pier, above, is just to the left.

 

 

The sun is just a picture as it endeavours to remain in bed. 

Reminds me of our boys when they were teens and

I wanted half an hour’s assistance on a Saturday morning.

It always took an hour to get them out.

from the end of the Pier.

The first time I ever tried smoothing the water.

The 12 Apostles on a 44 Degree Celsius day

 

I love the colours of the sand, foam and aqua water.

It is obviously being enjoyed by this beach goer.

This week I decided to post my whale nursery images

captured at Warrnambool’s

Southern Right Whale Nursery

at Logans Beach.

It was only 2-3 years ago that I first visited

Warrnambool’s Logans Beach.

A 200 kilometres (one way) drive.

At first, I was a little sceptical that whales would be on display.

Particularly after the drone pilot told me

they were nearly a kilometre out to sea.

Soon after a cow and calf were sighted…

around half a kilometre away…

 

…heading towards the viewing platform.

 

Logans Beach Warrnambool

I held my breath in the hope that they…


…would be within a decent range.

While I was using a 50-500 mm Sigma Zoom lens…

 

…with some cropping…

…I was more than pleased with the results

from my first whale watching images

from Warrnambool.

This image was taken using the 50mm end of my zoom

simply to show how close to the sand the whales came.

I am sure better images were available to

those with only a 50 mm lens.

I only re-discovered this image

this morning.

 

It was planted in the car park

at Hopkins Falls (close to the coast)

which is near Warrnambool,

a Victorian coastal city.

 

A Google image search suggested

it may be a Tibouchina. 

However, I don’t think a  tibouchina

would grow in these coastal conditions. 

Ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.
