Some images taken along Victoria’s

Great Ocean Road.

Stone piles created by tourists, holiday makers.

After the bush fires of a year or two ago.

These fires burned to the sea and closed

the Great ocean Road to tourist traffic

for several days.

A scene from my favourite drive through the

Otway National Park on my way to

the Great Ocean Road.

Flash.

Recently we had a fast moving storm pass by in….

in the wee hours of the morning.

I managed to capture several flashes of lightning

which look reasonable at this distance,

however, when zoomed in they are out of focus

and I am not sure why.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Winter-Water

~~~

My contribution for this week’s

Winter-Water

 

I posted this a week or so ago

after some heavy rains.
For the 24 hours to Tuesday morning we had

another fall of 38 mm (152 points) which has

filled dams, and left water in paddocks where

we have never seen it in our twelve years

near Geelong.And there is more thunderstorms forecast

over the next few days.

All around us the ground certainly looks

like it does in the middle of winter.

Week 16, 2017

A few weeks ago my post was titled Gone fishing

with this photo.

 

However,

on Monday, April 10…at about 0300

I think I could have

Gone Fishing in our backyard.

We had 174 points of rain between

early afternoon Sunday and about

0700 on Monday.

More shots from the Point Lonsdale lighthouse and pier.

Wind nearly strong enough to blow my tripod over.

Sun well up, but I do like this effect

when it breaks through the clouds.

Point Lonsdale light house.

 After being blown off the pier….

two minutes of magic.

Thank you Mother Nature.

Random piles of earth this week.Drakensburg ranges in South Africa


If ever visiting Cairns in Queensland

this pile of earth should catch your eye.

Between Geelong and my home town

on the Hamilton Highway is Mount Elephant.

Fortunately ‘they’ have stopped eating

into the side of these volcanic cones

which dot Victoria’s Western District.

Mount Shadwell, another of

Western Victoria’s piles of earth.

And finally a pile of earth from The Twelve Apostles.

Sad to think these are falling due to

the incessant pounding they receive from the sea.

We were very lucky I think.
