I decided to stick to Aussie favourites for his week’s challenge.

Griffin Gully Pier with the sky colours reflected in the water.

Again reflections and colours.

The pier, above, is just to the left.

 

 

The sun is just a picture as it endeavours to remain in bed. 

Reminds me of our boys when they were teens and

I wanted half an hour’s assistance on a Saturday morning.

It always took an hour to get them out.

Point Lonsdale Lighthouse

Sundown at Point Lonsdale Lighthouse

from the end of the Pier.

The first time I ever tried smoothing the water.

The 12 Apostles on a 44 Degree Celsius day

 

I love the colours of the sand, foam and aqua water.

It is obviously being enjoyed by this beach goer.

Visitors to the…

12 Apostles…….will know that these formations are…

…right behind photographers when they

capture their iconic images

Although seldom, if ever, part of a travel advertisement…

…I think these formations are equal to

the Apostles themselves.

Many years ago…

…it was possible to walk right out to the end of this formation.

  Now visitors are kept safely back on Terra Firma…

 

…and these signs are everywhere.

The Standard postcard views…

of the 12 Apostles.

vulnerable

exposed to the possibility of being attacked or harmed,
either physically or emotionally.
 

~~~~~

All along Victoria’s, Shipwreck Coast, nature has

been hard at work eroding away coastal limestone

to create the 12 Apostles, Lochard Gorge and

London Bridge (now called London Arch)

 

Now, that same force of nature is working

to topple all of its hard work.

Around 25-30 years ago London Bridge

(now called London Arch) toppled

and detached from mainland Australia.

More recently another of the Apostles

fell victim to the ravages of Mother Nature…

 

…which is probably why we can no longer

walk out to the end of this Apostle.

Commencing with the

Million Dollar View

at Banff in Canada.

A bit closer to some is

New Zealand’s,

Mount Ruapehu

on the North Island.

One of my favourite Australian views.

Since 2005 we have lived much closer to…

 

…Geelong’s Corio Bay.

 

In no particular order…

…these are but a few of my sunrise images.
