marvellous

According to Labradors the is never

sufficient food on the table…

New Zealand’s,

Mt Ruapehu

in

Tongariro National Park

Taken from a digitised version of Super 8 movie film,

atop Ayres Rock (now Uluru) in Central Australia.

Twenty-four year-old Woolly

signing the visitor’s book

after climbing the Rock in 1975.

With The Olgas in the background,

it was a wondrous experience.

Commencing with the

Million Dollar View

at Banff in Canada.

A bit closer to some is

New Zealand’s,

Mount Ruapehu

on the North Island.

One of my favourite Australian views.

Since 2005 we have lived much closer to…

 

…Geelong’s Corio Bay.

 

In no particular order…

…these are but a few of my sunrise images.

The Million Dollar View

Fairmont Hotel Banff, Canada.

Originally this view was where hotel staff

were to be housed…at the back of the building.

It didn’t take long before staff were moved

to a less desirable location and paying guests

were housed in the

Million Dollar View

wing.

 

Sun up on Corio Bay

A foggy morning at Griffin Gully, Geelong.

Another Griffin Gully morning.

One of my morning shoots between

Lockdowns 2 and 3 last year.

I was waiting for the sun to break through

just left of this shot and just could not believe

the difference between the cool sea

in front of me and what appears

to be a boiling sea in this image.

Nothing like a clear blue sky,

canola in bloom and some

gnarled old eucalypts.

Another of my favourites from

Geelong’s, Corio Bay.

One image I have yet to capture

is just prior to a summer sunset

when the reflected light from the hulls

appears much brighter than in this shot.

The Fairmont Hotel’s

six million dollar view,

at Banff, Canada.

 

 

 

Three Moorabool  Valley views.

Up until January 2020, I loved driving these roads.

However, that all changed when

I saw similar roads being blocked

by fallen trees when last year’s

bushfires were burning.

 


Moorabool Valley

dressed in fog.

 

 

Perhaps my favourite

Moorabool Valley

landscape.

On many country roads,

two vehicles constitutes a traffic jam.

So it was with our farm.

The reason I like this landscape

is that a hundred metres into the trees

road noise is nonexistent.

You can hear birds and the occasional kangaroo

crashing its way through the trees.

My favourite places.

Locally it has to be Griffin Gully Pier

over looking Geelong’s

Corio Bay.

I missed out on visiting Butchart Gardens in 1976.

The wait was long but certainly worth it

when we visited in 2018.

 

Accommodation during my 1976 visit to Banff

consisted of a sleeping bag and a small tent.

Forty-two years later and a lot more comfort

and more memories
