Clouds…

…around…

 

…Geelong.

And a cloudy coastal morning.

 

Geelong and District fogs…

…are what I imagine…

…London’s  Pea Soupers

…would be…

…like…

…cold, wet and thick.

On Friday (November 13) I decided,

after finding a web page which provided

shipping arrival and departure times

at the Port of Melbourne, to venture down to

Point Lonsdale to view ships

entering or leaving Port Phillip Bay

Unfortunately the drive was a bit longer than expected

and my 0730 departure was ten minutes early.

Later I discovered it had departed Melbourne

between 5 and 10 minutes earlier than scheduled

and I  just managed a couple of shots before

this vessel was well on its way

into Bass Strait.

From Point Lonsdale Pier.

The Bait Board.

Not sure if that is the correct name,

however, it is where bait is cut up,

hence my terminology.

 

 

 

Rusty bits.

Port Phillip Bay opens into the open seas

via a shallow and narrow opening between

Point Nepean and Point Lonsdale.

Point Nepean from Point Lonsdale.

 

Just behind the trees on the left is where

the Moyne River converges with the sea.

The commonality each of these

places have…

…is that all three empty in Bass Strait.

Port Phillip Bay on the right, Warrnambool’s

Hopkins River (second from let) and

Port Fairy’s Moyne River is the extreme left point

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Capture

~~~~~

capture

1. take into one’s possession or control by force.
2. record accurately in words or pictures.

 

Must confess to never having heard of

the second definition of capture

until I began blogging.

Today I have included some

photographic captures I have made

over recent years.

Point Lonsdale Pier and Lighthouse after sunset.

Same location.

I was packed up and walking back to the car

when this rainbow appeared.

I barely had time to get my camera out

before it disappeared.

In my opinion…a real capture.

Finally, two sunrise photos…

…also taken at Point Lonsdale.
