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.

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.

My

Landscape

 Challenge

On Monday morning I set off on a six hour drive…and this was all I could see

of the surrounding landscape.

 

Without warning I drove out of the fog into sunlight

and a sea of canola blooms guided me towards…

 

 my destination…Halls Gap.

Hall’s Gap is a pretty town situated in

the southern end of Australia’s Great Diving Range.

These two shots from a car park show

Halls Gap township surrounded by mountains.

 This end of the Great Dividing Range is known as

the Grampians.

Hall’s Gap is only about an hours drive

from where I spent most of my life.
