~~~~~

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.

 

Baobab Tree, in Botswana.

Kalahari Scrub Robin, in Botswana,

at Lekhubu Island.

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.

Gibsons Steps

Not far out of Geelong you will find Dog Rocks.

A popular spot for photographers

and night photography.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Layered

 

~~~~~

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Layered

~~~~~

The first thing which came to mind was…Black Forest Cake layers.

I wonder why?

When I found this mini haystack.

When I built haystacks we used to refer

to each layer as a row.

 

I now I posted this shot a day or so back.

However, a feature of our southern coastlines

are these sandstone cliffs and

their layers of soft rock, which…

has been known to give way without notice and

would give these tourists a ride better than

any roller coaster could provide.

 May be a one way ticket though.

Finally, ten years ago I/we built this garden bed in layers.

No. 2 Son, at the time called it a pyramid

and to this day it is thusly referred.

My

Steps

 Travel Theme.

~~~~~

Steps from all over this week.

Some Viennese steps.

 At St Paul de Vence near Nice.

 Even the Vatican had a healthy set of steps.

 

This area of coastline is near

The Twelve Apostles

and is known as

Gibson Steps.

My destination was the Apostles so this was

only to be a brief stop.

On the day I did not see the steps

but the size of the couple on the sand

left me in no doubt that I

would not be looking for them, that day.
