I think it may have been divine intervention
that made this image possible.
Day 1 and the peak was covered in clouds
while we visited Denali National Park.
The next day as we were travelling to Fairbanks
our coach driver pulled over so
we could capture shots like this one, of
North America’s highest peak
Alaska’s, Mount Denali.
The Million Dollar View at
Banff Springs Hotel
Geelong and the Western District.
And the views from…
…from God’s Window over South Africa’s
Blyde River canyon…
…can only be described as divine.
Million Dollar View.
During recent years, Griffin Gully
has proven to be a wonderful spot
for Blue Hour…
…and sunrise photos…
…all year round.
From high atop the London Eye…
Big Ben quickly became…
inspiring a feeling of wonder or delight;

Twenty-four year-old Woolly

after climbing the Rock in 1975.
With The Olgas in the background,
it was a wondrous experience.
Commencing with the
Million Dollar View
at Banff in Canada.
A bit closer to some is
on the North Island.
One of my favourite Australian views.
Since 2005 we have lived much closer to…
…Geelong’s Corio Bay.
In no particular order…
…these are but a few of my sunrise images.
Banff’s Million Dollar View
definitely falls into the spectacular
category in my opinion.
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
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.
Some random potential postcard images.

six million dollar view,
at Banff, Canada.
Three Moorabool Valley views.
Up until January 2020, I loved driving these roads.
However, that all changed when
I saw similar roads being blocked
by fallen trees when last year’s
bushfires were burning.
