According to media outlets,

Winter commences on June 1st.

My primary school definitely taught us

that Winter or the seasons commenced

on the solstices and equinoxes.

June 11-2021

Late Autumn or early Winter depending

on one’s point of view.

July 30

Six or seven weeks later and there are

no arguments about the season…

Definitely Winter.

2907-2021

However, around mid-July winter does take on

a brighter hue when the first signs of spring

appear in the form of our Golden (above)

and Cootamundra Wattles (Acacias)

in bloom.

August, 07

Come August and Erlicheer jonquils have lived

up to their name adding some cheer

to our Winter gardens.

Jonquils are followed by daffodils adding

their touch of colour into early Spring.

The sun’ll come out tomorrow

 

Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow

There’ll be sun

 

Just thinkin’ about tomorrow
Clears away the cobwebs and the sorrow

‘Til there’s none

 

When I’m stuck a with day that’s gray and lonely

I just stick out my chin and grin, and say, oh

The sun’ll come out tomorrow

So you gotta hang on ’til tomorrow

Come what may

 

Tomorrow, tomorrow

I love ya tomorrow

You’re always a day away

 

When I’m stuck a with day that’s gray and lonely

I just stick out my chin and grin, and say, oh

So you gotta hang on ’til tomorrow
Come what may

 

Tomorrow, tomorrow
I love ya tomorrow
You’re always a day away

Tomorrow, tomorrow
I love ya tomorrow
You’re always a day away

The Million Dollar View

Fairmont Hotel Banff, Canada.

Originally this view was where hotel staff

were to be housed…at the back of the building.

It didn’t take long before staff were moved

to a less desirable location and paying guests

were housed in the

Million Dollar View

wing.

 

Sun up on Corio Bay

A foggy morning at Griffin Gully, Geelong.

Another Griffin Gully morning.

One of my morning shoots between

Lockdowns 2 and 3 last year.

I was waiting for the sun to break through

just left of this shot and just could not believe

the difference between the cool sea

in front of me and what appears

to be a boiling sea in this image.

Nothing like a clear blue sky,

canola in bloom and some

gnarled old eucalypts.

Another of my favourites from

Geelong’s, Corio Bay.

One image I have yet to capture

is just prior to a summer sunset

when the reflected light from the hulls

appears much brighter than in this shot.
