Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Colorful-Monotone

~~~

~~~~~

These sunrises are close to…

colourful monochrome, I think.

This year has been a tough one for good sunrises, sunsets.

They always seem to have been elsewhere.

 

These last three are Corio Bay sunrises.

My imagination tells me the colour palette is similar.

 

 

This is one of my favourites, even if it does not fit here.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Cycles

Bicycles and Motorcycles

We first noticed the high usage of bicycles in Brugge.    

While in Amsterdam the bicycle flat

provides free parking for 2,500 bicycles.

~~~~~

The Cadel Evans January Road Race in Geelong’s suburbs.

The Peloton.

Motorcycles and shouldered television cameras

beaming the action to the world.

Riders look relaxed but are travelling

at a phenomenal speed.

A few weeks ago, in the wee hours of the morning

we were awoken by the sound of barking dogs

and powerful lights torch flashing in our window.

This was followed by red and blue flashing lights

circling our block every five minutes or so.

Still not one hundred percent sure what was going on

except that someone was where they shouldn’t have been

at that hour of the day.

Hope you enjoyed.

Cee’s

Black and White Challenge:

Motors

~~~~~

Due to a lack of motor/engine photos,

I opted for the definition of motor which refers to motor cars.

Beginning with a Oldsmobile. 

Haven’t a clue really, but the number plates read MYOLDZ, so….

Not a car specialist so appreciate any errors corrected please.

A Buick if I have read the badge correctly.

A Chevvie.

This one, as are all to follow, is an

Australian made Holden

from the early to mid sixties.

An early Commodore introduced in 1978.

The mid-sized 4 cylinder Commodore was not a huge success,

from memory, in Australia

My second car.

A LH 1975 Torana.

Finally, my current ride.

The SV6 version of the VF Commodore

The last of the Australian made Commodores.   

Because some of these vehicles look much better in colour

they will also feature in my Wordless Wednesday post,

scheduled for one hour after this post.

About ten minutes from Geelong is this rock formation

known as Dog Rocks.

 

It is a popular place for photographers…

 

to gather for star photography.

I am afraid out on cold nights doesn’t appeal.

 

 

Early mornings are more my time of day.

For anyone wondering, I have no idea

why this rocky outcrop is called Dog Rocks.

Ruakuri Cave,

Waitomo, New Zealand.

Stalactites grow about 1 centimetre every 100 years.

Just imagine how old the joined stalactite and stalagmite,

in the centre of this image, are.

Hope you enjoyed.
