Weekly-Weather-Halos

Unfortunately this is the second time

I have re-posted this photo this week.

However, it is the only photo I have

which vaguely resembles the challenge requirements

of halo, sun dogs or light pillars

Captured along the Great Ocean Road

after fires had devastated the area

a few weeks prior.

It was a foggy morning which probably caused the halo.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Hot-Cold

~~~

My contribution for this week’s

Hot-Cold

 

In winter of 2006…
I discovered this horizontal icicle which,

for a short period, of time stretched across

the gutter’s edge in the foreground.

Fast forward to January 4, 2013 and I am

driving along the Great ocean Road showing

my Canadian friends its beauty.

This is Lochard Gorge.

The bitumen in the car park was melting and

it was the only time I did not walk around

to a cave on the left of shot due to the heat.

Temperature around 44 degrees Celsius, or just over 110°F.

Some images taken along Victoria’s

Great Ocean Road.

Stone piles created by tourists, holiday makers.

After the bush fires of a year or two ago.

These fires burned to the sea and closed

the Great ocean Road to tourist traffic

for several days.

A scene from my favourite drive through the

Otway National Park on my way to

the Great Ocean Road.

Odd Ball

Week 16, 2016

~~~~~

Not so much odd, as unusual, this week.

A drive along, or to,

The Great Ocean Road

produced this shot on Monday.

It reminds me of similar scenes when

camping in the Canadian Rockies years ago.

Forty to be exact.

Black and White Tuesday

 April 18, 2016

A few days ago, on Facebook, I saw some…stones_9650

 photos of rock stacks, lots of them.

Not far from Geelong.

So, this morning I set off to visit these

natural rock formations.

After an hour an a half drive this was I came upon.

 Not many stacks, but heaps of stones and a family,

who had negotiated the slippery 10-15 foot descent,

and had just finished making these few

rock stacks.

A rather disappointing end to my journey.

However, along the way I managed a few shots

of the foggy morning.

A when I reached The Great Ocean Road

this was what Bass Strait was like.

Not as rough as I have seen it,

but better than millpond.
