Jo’s Monday Walk


Surf Coast

 Every week or two I hop in the car

and head off somewhere to capture images

for my blog and Facebook.

This particular morning I was on my way home

via Barwon Heads..where the Barwon River

empties into Bass Strait.

This side is Barwon Heads

cross the bridge and

one is in Ocean Grove.


I may have darkened this image a tad, however,

you still get the idea of the sun reflecting

on little jewels in the water.


Also coastlines are fabulous for

gnarled twisted trees like this one.


Like many of our natives trees they manage to

sprout new life from anywhere along the trunk.


Moving on to see if there were any surfers

at Torquay’s Beaches.

They didn’t let me down.


Waves may not have been huge but I think this

would give anyone an adrenaline rush.

Endeavouring to out run Mother Nature…


but succumbing or being over taken.

Still not a bad place to enjoy some morning exercise.

And that’s my Monday morning drive for this week.

Black and White Challenge:



Some texture on trees.

Two images of eucalyptus tree trunks.

This family of trees are better known as

Gum Trees in Australia.

While there is texture visible in BW  

they look much better reflecting rays from a rising sun.


Taken this morning, Friday, this tree was found at Barwon Heads,

a coastal town where the Barwon River empties into Bass Strait.

It shows all the attributes of a coastal tree.  

Colour or BW….there is not a lot of difference.


Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Texture




I have chosen three of the words

for this week’s challenge. Probably fair to say the sun had set before I took this shot,


I am sure it was setting somewhere else 🙂

Time 0700 and fog is severely limiting my horizon.

0840 and the view is not much better and

the temperature is -1 Celsius.  

Very cold for this blogger.


The Barwon River at Barwon Heads.

The bottom marking  is the 2.1 metre tide level of 1978.

The top marker is ‘extreme tide’.

I do not know if that level has ever been attained.


Thursday’s Special: Words



I took a drive to Barwon Heads today…


parked the car just left of this shot and made my way

down under the bridge crossing the Barwon River

as it empties into Bass Strait.


Upon my return  I notice this short walk, a short cut,

back to the shopping centre,

which I have cropped out of this shot.
