Channel markers

in Corio Bay



With all the world’s problems…



…Corio Bay is a very peaceful place

to take a quiet moment

to reflect especially at or…

…just before sunrise.

Sunset over the neighbours trees.

Sunrise on Corio Bay.

At sunrise the temperature was 1 degree Celsius

and the water appears to boil.

A Photo a Week Challenge:   Anything






I’m going to start and finish this week’s post

with 2020 images from Corio Bay’s

Griffin Gully Jetty,

my favourite spot

to spend some morning time…

…and watch the sun rise…

…or sometimes not.

It is also a good spot for some…

…Blue hour photography.


This image is enlarged to about 75-90 cm wide.

Thought I may have sold a copy

while displaying it a few years ago.

Alas the bloke simply raved

(several times) that it was a photo

then walked away.



Another of the, or not,

(watch the sun rise) mornings.



There is a degree of sameness about these images,

however, I think they are all different

and have appeal…


…which is probably why I am not an artist 🙂

As promised at the top…

…my final image is of a February 2020

pre lock down fog in living colour.

Another which I like but the rest of

the world does not,

if Gurushots.com votes are

anything to go by.  🙂

One of the most peaceful places

I can think of…

…is driving through the rain forests

about an hour’s drive from Geelong.

However, a closer and equally peaceful place

is on the shores of Corio Bay

watching the sun rise.

Whether you are after some

blue hour images or…

…just want to greet the sun as it wakes…

…the only thing likely to disturb you is the

gentle slapping of water

against Griffin Gully Jetty…

…or as wavelets pass along the many boats

moored nearby.

Of course there are regular walkers, joggers…


…and occasionally other photographers

out to capture, for future enjoyment,

the scene of the day.
