On January 1, 2013 some friends I hadn’t seen since 1976
arrived from Saskatchewan, Canada. One of the planned excursions was a drive along
The Great Ocean Road.
This shot, inside Lochard Gorge, was taken near
the end of that day.
The temperature was 44 degrees Celsius/111 degrees F
and the bitumen in the car park was melting.
It was summer.
Another sign that summer is on its way is
the erection of the Geelong Ferris wheel.
is the Ferris Wheel on Geelong’s Foreshore.
A few days ago construction still had not begun
so I assume summer is a few weeks away.
January 4th, 2013 at Lochard Gorge.
Bitumen in the car park was melting
and after climbing down the steps to the sand
all I wanted to do was walk over to the shade,
and there seemed to be twice as many steps
back up to car park level.
The temperature was 44 degrees Celsius, that day.
A few days later snapped this photo
of my Canadian friends with a top layer on.
I was still in shorts.
Week 46, 2016
On Thursday I was playing around with depth of field…
I would have liked something better
than the tree branch for a foreground
and I think the break in the
background plantation (blue sky)
is a distraction.
So it becomes an Odd Ball entry…one
that I don’t know what to do with. 🙂
