 Travel Theme.

December 2016 our camera club

flew to Sydney for the day.

One of the highlights of a visiting

Sydney is to visit King’s Cross.

Kings Cross has a reputation which

draws large crowds after  dark.

 

It seemed everyone on the excursion

knew about the Coca-Cola sign

at Kings Cross, except yours truly.

A good Irish sounding name for a hotel.

My

Calm

 Travel Theme.

Hard to imagine that….

this stretch  of coastline produces surf beaches

on which world, surfing championships are held.

 

 Point Lonsdale in the morning.

Point Lonsdale Lighthouse just after sunset…

and with a nice long shutter speed

designed to flatten the ripples below.

My

Steps

 Travel Theme.

~~~~~

Steps from all over this week.

Some Viennese steps.

 At St Paul de Vence near Nice.

 Even the Vatican had a healthy set of steps.

 

This area of coastline is near

The Twelve Apostles

and is known as

Gibson Steps.

My destination was the Apostles so this was

only to be a brief stop.

On the day I did not see the steps

but the size of the couple on the sand

left me in no doubt that I

would not be looking for them, that day.

My

Sports

 Travel Theme.

Three sports…

I have never tried kite surfing…

but it appears to be…

 a lot of fun and a bit dangerous judging by the helmet.

Nor have I ever been on a surf board…

 But I would just love to be competent enough to

manoeuvre as in the first two images.

However, I think this would be more my style.

 

Some shots of the inaugural

Cadell Evans Road Race.

After several hours of country road racing…

riders have three of four laps of Geelong suburbs

before a finish on the foreshore.

Finally, one shot of the Melbourne Cricket Ground

on the first Monday in June.

Collingwood versus Melbourne.

Also the scene of the

1956 Olympics and the 2006 Commonwealth Games.
