Weekly-Weather-Storms

 

Sun and storms are always easy to capture…

at least more so than snowy conditions.

Late January, 2016, these storm clouds

dumped a huge amount of rain on Geelong

in a short space of time.

Cars were floating in low lying areas

where water was two to three feet deep.

December 2014 produced this

spectacular display of lightning.

While we grumble about the wind

which now reaches our house,

due to lack of mature trees,

the plus side is those trees

do not block these displays of

nature at her finest.

Week 105

Veil

About four years ago we awoke to find….

the hills and mountains around Mt Sheba Lodge…

in South Africa, covered in a veil of mist, or fog.

 

However, that fog was not a patch one the one

which shrouded Geelong’s…

Queen’s Park Golf Course

in early August 2017.

Recreation varies from person to person.

I used to think of this as recreation when in my late teens, early twenties. 

Cycling can be a sport or recreational.

For me, it was always recreational.

 

Our safari guide had his own form

of recreational activity.

The twenty-minute power nap!

I managed to capture a couple of half decent photos…

of this sport/recreational activity at Torquay…

during a morning in which I was

pursuing my own recreational activity.
