Black and White Tuesday

As mention in an earlier post, my Monday

drive to Halls Gap in the Grampians,

or the Southern end of the Great Dividing Range,

had a foggy beginning.

However once the mountains came in sight

they were worth stopping for a photo opportunity.

Taken from the Halls Gap car park this peak

appears quite distant.

 

At least forty years ago I did stand atop that peak

after a group of us walked…..

‘climbed’ would have sounded better,

up there mostly in bare feet.

I always wanted to repeat the walk.

Alas…I don’t think it is going to happen.

Just below this image, out of shot,

is the Halls Gap shopping centre.

***

I’m sure I read, in the Canadian Rockies, in  1976,

that The Great Dividing Range was 40,000 years old

and well and truly eroded

before the Rockies were formed.

Ten minutes on Google can only tell me both ranges

were formed around 300,000,000 years ago.

Some random shots taken during the past week.

This is the view from our camera club

meeting place for the next few years.

This is the cloud formation that made me

take my camera out of its bag last Thursday.

Some photos from my whale watching trip

at Warrnambool a few weeks ago.

The Mouth of  the Hopkins River at Warrnambool,

with Bass Strait on the horizon.

 

Proudfoot’s Boathouse Restaurant

on  the Hopkins River.

I know why there is only one set of footsteps…

my utility/truck died on me on Monday morning.

Another unwanted/unexpected expense.

A 0430 start this Monday morning to 

arrive at Anglesea before sunrise.

I discovered at 1630 that I was not the only one

awake at 0430!  Oops!

Worth the drive.

Though I must confess I will be happy to… 

finish up tonight.

Colour on Wednesday.

Some shots from last Friday’s trip to the coast. 

Personally, I prefer stopping before the red signal.  

Point Roadknight, at Anglesea,

is literally 50 metres to camera right

 The cliffs…
