Weekly Photo Challenge-Layered

 

~~~~~

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Layered

~~~~~

The first thing which came to mind was…Black Forest Cake layers.

I wonder why?

When I found this mini haystack.

When I built haystacks we used to refer

to each layer as a row.

 

I now I posted this shot a day or so back.

However, a feature of our southern coastlines

are these sandstone cliffs and

their layers of soft rock, which…

has been known to give way without notice and

would give these tourists a ride better than

any roller coaster could provide.

 May be a one way ticket though.

Finally, ten years ago I/we built this garden bed in layers.

No. 2 Son, at the time called it a pyramid

and to this day it is thusly referred.

A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Recreation

~~~~~~

Recreation varies from person to person.

I used to think of this as recreation when in my late teens, early twenties. 

Cycling can be a sport or recreational.

For me, it was always recreational.

 

Our safari guide had his own form

of recreational activity.

The twenty-minute power nap!

I managed to capture a couple of half decent photos…

of this sport/recreational activity at Torquay…

during a morning in which I was

pursuing my own recreational activity.

Jo’s Monday Walk

Week-33

Logan’s Beach Whale Nursery

 

 Decided to have a short break from the sombre

Battlefields of World War I this week.

Friday, August 25, saw me heading off at 0630 to drive

over 180 kilometres back

to Warrnambool and Logan’s Beach Whale Nursery

where Southern Right Whales

come to breed each year.

Thought that I may have captured a decent sunrise

along the way, but no luck there.

The day was not looking too promising.

 

After my planned breakfast stop about 150 km along the way,

I eventually arrived at a sparsely populated

whale watching platform…

 

and either west or east not a whale in sight.

Just an interesting sign.

 

All the questions I have about the sign were answered

when the drone touched down.

The operators were able to tell me there were

two whales 1700 metres out to sea

and a cow and calf about 500 metres east…over the UAV sign.

Not a promising start indeed.

The cow and calf soon appeared much to my delight…

and swam along past the whale watching platform…

 

taking about half an hour from first sighting to

its cold and windy, lets get out of here.

I heard one of the wildlife officers comment

that the cow would be around 15 – 18 metres long.

 

I think it was the calf was most active.

 

However, this was the highest either one rose out of the water.

 

All of this…

took place less than…

one hundred metres from the sand.

Enlarge this image and you will see

a whale under the text on the photo.

The person on the right is at the foot of

the whale watching platform.

I drove home happy with my day out,

even though I heard that there had been eleven whales

visible the day before.

A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Literary-Reference

~~~~~~

My first thoughts were of Top Gun.

But Google and MGW disagreed…and Google lost.

True to form MGW suggested another true literary piece.

 

Even though only taken a week ago…

 

I had not thought of these images for this challenge.

 

This cow and calf put on a good show at

Warrnambool’s, Logans Beach

Southern Right Whale Nursery

and were far more relaxed

than Moby Dick ever was.

Could not work out why thee was a need for this sign…

at the whale watching platform.

Then the pennies began to drop…

as the whale watching drone touched down.
