Cee-BW-Challenge-In-the-Distance

~~~~~

With nearly a three hour drive ahead of me

this was…

one of my first views of the distant

Grampians, on Monday.

Taken from this perspective,

Cunningham Pier Restaurant

looks very distant behind the right most ball.

 

While Melbourne’s St Kilda Pier is longer

than Geelong’s Cunningham Pier,

the kiosk on the end of St Kilda Pier

also looks a long way off.

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Glow

~~~~~

My glows are from

Arras, France and Geelong

this week.The Arras Bell Tower lit up by surrounding lights.

 

A combination of wall light and flash light

gave an interesting glow to the wall

of St. Germain’s cafe in Arras.

 

During daylight these are just white balls

adorning Geelong’s Foreshore.

However…

 after dark they become glowing beacons.

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.
