RyanPhotography-WeeklyPC-69-Waves

~~~~~~

There are many types of ‘waves’,

however, I am sticking with

my most photographed waves.


Some smallish waves near Gibson steps

which are near the Twelve Apostles. 

The rest of this week’s images were taken near…

…or at, Torquay beaches.

 

The waves were important in as much as…

 

 

 

…they gave my subjects…

 

 

…somewhere to play.

One of my favourite photos,

although I don’t think the surfer

would agree it was his best moment.

thousands of tourists each year.

In Switzerland we found many people…

..enjoying a break on Lake Lucerne,

in temperatures which would have had

most of us rugged up.

It was not until I cropped this photo

that I noticed the young male in the middle

and how much he appears to be enjoying his break

with four bikini clad young ladies.

 


I love to take a break and travel to somewhere

I have not been for a while and

photograph what I find. 

 

 

 

Gibson Steps was a place I had not visited

for many years until two years ago.

 


Photography has and will always be

a hobby of mine.

About two years ago I drove back to Warrnambool,

on Victoria’s South West Coast,

where there is a whale nursery at Logan’s Beach.

I know I have posted this image many times

and also because only the church remains, now.

It appears that a car yard is

being built around the church.

It still remains one of favourites.

Today I have included this shot of the of the roof,

and only just noticed (at 2330) the blue sky.

Finally, a shadow at Gibson Steps,

near The Twelve Apostles.

Below is an area of The Great Ocean Road,

near The Twelve Apostles,

known as Gibsons Steps.

I don’t recall seeing steps but people who were

on the sand materialised in the car park

in a short space of time.

Vatican steps.

 

Viennese steps.

These steps are near the beginning of

the Orakei Korako Geothermal walk…

1.8 kilometres and nearly 666 steps later

(there was some more around the corner)

we were nearly there.

My knees were protesting and they

screamed even louder when they saw we had

several flights of these stairs to and from our room.

That was the night we were offered a ground floor room.

And took it.

These rock piles received a noticeable write-up

in local papers a few yeas ago.

I must have missed the part that said

they were created by tourists.

Not far out of Geelong you will find Dog Rocks.

A popular spot for photographers

and night photography.
