Tuesday-PC-Wk119-Wind

~~~~~~~

I think (think because I photographed two windfarms

in recent years and there are no identifable landmarks)…

this may be the windfarm near our old home.

It was, with 104 turbines the largest, when built,

in the Southern Hemisphere.

Since then a windfarm of 231 turbines has been,

or is being, constructed

about an hours drive from Geelong.

Wind in the neighbours trees.

 

Kite surfing…

at Torquay beach.

Finally, windsurfers also near Torquay.

Somee BWs from Torquay again…

only this time from the…

engagement party venue.

This was the only table of munchies in sight

when we arrived….and when we left.

Constantly replenished during the night,

with friendly staff ensuring we had some

heartier finger food in our hands all night.

Wasn’t long before yours truly

ran up a white flag.

I have been wanting to visit Torquay again

for some time now.

With six-foot waves forecast today seemed to be ideal.

 

 

Just shows how much I know about surfing.

 

 The waves were there, however it was too windy,

 

and only a few brave souls took to the water.

And my ageing eyes found it difficult to see them

in the water such was their distance from shore.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Letter-W

~~~

My contribution for

this week’s challenge

Letter-W

(Needs to start with W and have two vowels in the word )

First up, back in South Africa’s

Kruger National Park.

Like the zebra crossings

it was a matter of waiting…patiently.

They were not in a hurry.

 

However, it appears this wildebeest was

moving very slowly.

At least Leo is smiling.

Was Willy the Wildebeest saying, kiss………

A Surf Coast Victoria, Wipeout.

 

 Our shopping,banking and business centre,

until we moved off the farm.

Fifty-five kilometres, one way,

ensured that a trip to Warrnambool

wasn’t just for a hamburger! 🙂

And should you be having difficulty

sorting out the syllables,

this may help……Warr/nam/bool

And if you really want to sound local

it sounds a bit like this….War/na/bool

🙂

Hard to imagine the water full of surfers…

but this was exactly the case on Monday,

just to the left and bottom of shot.

I don’t think waves were as big as forecast…

and my photos are not as good as hoped for.

There was a class of about 30 school age teenagers

surfing the breakers in shore and these blokes…

 were a long way out.

Cee’s

Black and White Challenge:

Texture

~~~~~

Some texture on trees.

Two images of eucalyptus tree trunks.

This family of trees are better known as

Gum Trees in Australia.

While there is texture visible in BW  

they look much better reflecting rays from a rising sun.

 

Taken this morning, Friday, this tree was found at Barwon Heads,

a coastal town where the Barwon River empties into Bass Strait.

It shows all the attributes of a coastal tree.  

Colour or BW….there is not a lot of difference.
