Happiness is…

sharing with a friend.

For me…

Happiness is…

capturing a scene…

that I always enjoy viewing and which made

an early rise worthwhile.

At Warrnambool’s Logans Beach…

I was fortunate enough to capture some

Southern Right Whales

splashing around in the nursery.

 


The right conditions and there are

plenty of splashes at Torquay’s Beaches.

Warrnambool’s

Hopkins Falls

August 2017

Bound to be a splash when this kite surfer touched down.

Heat

~~~~~

Our largest source of Heat,

the Sun,

drives many people to our beaches

during the summer months.

These sun lovers on and along Lake Lucerne had

shed their day wear for beach attire on a day

which most of us thought was pleasant but not hot.

However, I’m sure there a plenty who would

have a chuckle at me saying a day

was chilly, temperature under 20 degrees Celsius,

and cold under 10 degrees.

All a matter of perspective.

Weekly-Weather-Wind

A Windmill…

at rest in the middle of a canola crop.

No wind, no water pumped.

And there was no wind that morning.

 

Windmills to help keep the power grids going.

The Macarthur Wind Farm,  of 104 turbines (I think)

was said to be the largest in the

Southern Hemisphere when built. 

It  stands about 2 kilometres from our farm.

The turbines still look large nearly 10 kilometres away.

I have been told that where the blades join the turbine

they are 6 to 7 feet in diameter.

Quite easy to walk upright inside them.

Breathe

~~

I have heard it said that the Amazon Basin

is the lungs of the World.So, in 2001, with some health problems,

the completion of my teaching degree,

I decided to take up the offer to

lease part of our farm for growing Blue Gums.

With 89,000 trees planted I felt

I was helping the world breathe.

 

 Harvest time came around all too quickly.

It wasn’t long before they began to coppice

into nice little bushes again.

A couple of years alter one would not know

that this was not the first crop on the paddock.

And so the cycle commences again.

Yachts on Corio Bay.

A different view of Yachts on Corio Bay.

This part of the Bay always looks amazing

as the yachts constantly change positions

under the influence of wind and tide.

My contribution for

this week’s challenge

Letter-X

(Letter X anywhere in the word )

Mostly reposts….but…Texture of concrete.

A Juxtaposition of old a new methods of transport.

 

Some of the Extravagance on display

at Versailles Palace.

 

A couple out for a stroll along the sand near the

Twelve Apostles along Victoria’s

South West Coast line.

Both appear to be fairly tall…

perhaps above average height.

 

In this Context however,

they are tiny.
