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.

Floral Friday Challenge.

A visit to St Kilda Pier, this week…

 yielded a couple of shots of either

tough plants or weeds.

I suspect  the latter.

Also please forgive the rough edit in this shot.

Increased saturation to colour the tiny plants,

and added some unwanted colour which I did not

notice until nearly posting time.

Well past my bedtime.

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.
