Some more from Mount Buninyong.

I have been a little hesitant about posting these photos…

 

 however I do think that they look better…

 

 as Black and Whites, than in colour.

Mt Buninyong

views

~~~~~

 Last  week I decided to drive up

Mt Buninyong, near Ballarat.  

Mt Buninyong is an extinct volcano.

However, 17.5 km (Google) north of

Mt Buninyong is the inactive

volcanic scoria cone of

Mt Warrenheip.

~~~~~

Although many websites laud

the views from Mt Buninyong,

I’m afraid I did not totally agree.

Many visible landmarks were

partially blocked by eucalyptus trees

such as the above.

ANZAC Week 2018

~~~~~

 

Some ANZAC Day related posts this week.The Ayette, Indian and Chinese Cemetery.

I just could not get over how care goes

into maintaining these cemeteries.

 

 Headstones sitting shoulder to shoulder

indicate that all these lives were lost in one battle

and I think on the same day.

The age of most was 18-23 years.

No wonder my Grandfather was known as ‘old’

at the ripe old age of 28.

The Thiepval Memorial to

the French and British

missing on the Somme.

 My first look at how much these sites mean

to people of all ages from all parts

of the world.

 

 Children or Churches

remembering ancestors.

MY Grandfather survived World War I

however, he now has his own

small memorial in France.

Lest We Forget.

I discovered this steam roller…

and other pieces of…

tucked away behind a shed a week or so back.

An Australian made steam roller…

at a dahlia farm.

We drove to Anglesea to visit a nursery last week and returned via a different road…along which we discovered this…

shed…shop…museum?

The road was narrow and busy enough

for a country back road,

so we only paused long enough

to take a photo.

 I think the sign says it all.

It would have suited Cee’s Trucks BW

had I remembered.

I have been wanting to visit this jetty for several months.

I had one aborted attempt a few weeks ago,

however, last week I found where it was,

about 20 kilometres further on than anticipated

and headed off early for some sunrise photos.

Things still did not go to plan.

I am sure I have seen photos of the sun rising

along the length of the old jetty.

I wasn’t meant to take sunrise photos that day.

Apart from a dense cloud bank blocking out

any form of light until well after sunrise…

, the jetty is actually point to the You Yang Ranges

which are on the north-west/ish side of Corio Bay.

Therefore the sun was rising at around

ninety degrees to the right of this jetty.

Better luck next time.

Graphics card playing up again this evening. 

Apologies if photos not sharp.

Somee BWs from Torquay again…

only this time from the…

engagement party venue.

This was the only table of munchies in sight

when we arrived….and when we left.

Constantly replenished during the night,

with friendly staff ensuring we had some

heartier finger food in our hands all night.

Wasn’t long before yours truly

ran up a white flag.
