Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-More-Than-5



More than five objects or people in a photo.

Sunrise on Corio Bay


Watching a sunrise.

Just had to have a chuckle.

Restaurant lights

Sadly these trees no longer are.

Not sure if they have been replaced by eucalyptus trees

Model and photographer at work on St Kilda Pier.


Tourists helping each other…or resting.

While other line up for entry to,

or photograph, the next attraction.

One of my favourites this time of year.

Erlicheer daffodils…an early sign of spring.








sending out light; shining or glowing brightly.
(of electromagnetic energy, especially heat)
transmitted by radiation, rather than conduction or convection


My first thoughts were

of this scene…

…of the sun rays radiating warmth and heat

onto a lone pleasure craft on Corio Bay.

Then onto this image of the sun’s rays

in Moorabool Valley fog,

last week.






Rather than try and find photos

that reflect summer stillness…

…I thought I would post a couple of images

taken on Sunday and Monday morning.

Sunday morning fog was thick.

Those towers are about 186 feet tall

and barely visible at 0915.

Yesterday (Monday) morning this was

the scene out over Corio Bay at 1100.


With a lot of shadow applied the fog again is visible.


With sepia preset and a gradient toning

the fog is more evident.

We have had a cold, wet run of weather lately.

The past week has been reasonably free of rain but cold.

Monday morning my car showed

an ice warning light (at 1000)

  for the first time since I have had it.

Temperature was 2 degrees Celsius.

This morning (Tuesday) at 0915 the

temperature in Geelong is 4C/39F.

Two days ago June 23 Melbourne shivered

through its coldest June day since 1985

Compared to many Northern American winter scenes

which make it onto our media we

are having balmy weather.

However, our latitude is the 37th (Melbourne)

and 38th (Geelong) parallel south.

Same latitude north, as San Francisco.


SUNDAY STILLS PHOTO:  Summer-Stillness




Some of my favourite things are my cameras.

Cameras, lenses and travel allows me to…

…get up close to wildlife.

They also allow me to capture and keep nature

when she puts on a grand display…



…and also the not so grand displays.


Even foggy mornings can produce good results.

And when Mother Nature is a bit sluggish

getting out of bed, technology has advanced so much

that we can now capture lights prior to daylight.

Finally there are landscapes and many other

subjects to be found everywhere.

And there is also…

…raindrops on roses….

…and whiskers on kittens…

…brown paper packages tied up with strings

🙂 🙂 These are a few of my favourite things.  🙂 🙂
