My

Landscape

 Challenge

~~~~

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.

Again a fog photo.

Two bollards usually have morning joggers,

fishermen and the occasional photographer

to keep them company.

Not so, that morning.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-Words4August

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,

however,

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.

Week 32, 2017

~~~~~

This past week we have had to heavy fogs.

Geelong’s main Street at 0724 on Thursday.

Nearby by Avalon Airport was closed for four hours.

A plane from Sydney, about a 60 minute flight,

took two and a half hours because it could land.

Twelve circuits of Avalon,

tried to land and aborted at 250 feet.

Number 1 Son was booked on a 0900 flight

and did not get away until 1300.

Behind that fog is a beach and a yacht club marina.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-Slow-2

For sometime MGW has been telling me of a lookout

on the outskirts of Geelong which would be

good for photography.

 The lookout over looks Queen’s Park Golf Course

and the Barwon River.

On Wednesday morning I set off thinking I might get

some half decent shots of trees breaking through the fog.

I was on site by 0700 for a 0730 sunrise.

This shot was taken around 0840 with finger tips

totally numb and  having little or no control or strength

in my right hand due to the cold.

My car said it was -1 degree Celsius.

I have never been so happy to return to my car and warm up.

 The fog just kept rolling up the valley into my face

and did not lift until near midday.

A few months ago I was photographing…

a foggy morning and dew on the grass.

 

A click of the mouse (or two) and it is nearly art.

I did say…nearly. 🙂

Hope you enjoyed.
