SUNDAY-STILLS-PC-Winter-Stillness

 

~~~~~

 

Rather than try and find photos

that reflect summer stillness…

…I thought I would post a couple of images

taken on Sunday and Monday morning.

Sunday morning fog was thick.

Those towers are about 186 feet tall

and barely visible at 0915.

Yesterday (Monday) morning this was

the scene out over Corio Bay at 1100.

 

With a lot of shadow applied the fog again is visible.

 

With sepia preset and a gradient toning

the fog is more evident.

We have had a cold, wet run of weather lately.

The past week has been reasonably free of rain but cold.

Monday morning my car showed

an ice warning light (at 1000)

  for the first time since I have had it.

Temperature was 2 degrees Celsius.

This morning (Tuesday) at 0915 the

temperature in Geelong is 4C/39F.

Two days ago June 23 Melbourne shivered

through its coldest June day since 1985

Compared to many Northern American winter scenes

which make it onto our media we

are having balmy weather.

However, our latitude is the 37th (Melbourne)

and 38th (Geelong) parallel south.

Same latitude north, as San Francisco.

SUNDAY STILLS PHOTO:  Summer-Stillness

FOWChallenge-Mist

~~~~~

While searching for ‘mist’ I was

surprised to find a photo of a cat.

Taken nearly 10 years ago, Misty was a rescue cat

and a nice one at that.

The foggy mist was probably

the thought behind the challenge.

This was taken on June 12 around midday.

I have added a sepia filter and boosted saturation

A foggy drive and still…

this sign caught my eye.


And just in case you did not catch it….

not often we see a run of zeros at

a petrol/service/gas station.

Since then fuel has jumped to over

$1.50 per litre top price.

The low end of the cycle is around $1.30 per litre.

Weekly-Weather-Fog

 

Plenty of winter fogs around here.

Not so many summer fogs though.This pier/jetty is where I take many

of my Corio Bay photos.

View not so good that day.

Moorabool/main Street of Geelong.

 

A June fog blocking the background scenery.

I used Picasa’s boost tool (default setting)

to enhance the image.

The result?  A bland photo turned into

into a more interesting early morning shot.

I think lightning looks good in either

colour or black and white.

A very recent foggy morning.

 Lastly my favourite recent photo.

A short sharp downpour provided me

with enough time to grab a camera and

photograph this rain.

This is a photo that looks better after editing

and also looks good in BW.

At least that’s my opinion.

Maybe a re-post…last Monday’s

foggy start to the day.

 

Even in BW canola fields look okay.

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.
