Black and White Tuesday

~~~~~

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.

First old photos of the surf…

at Torquay.

 

Wind also creating a good spray on these waves.

 

Taken in October 2016, the wind creates

grass waves in paddocks this time of year.

One of my favourite sites.

Photo darkened to enhance the waves.

Hard to imagine that….

this stretch  of coastline produces surf beaches

on which world, surfing championships are held.

 

 Point Lonsdale in the morning.

Point Lonsdale Lighthouse just after sunset…

and with a nice long shutter speed

designed to flatten the ripples below.

Jo’s Monday Walk

Week-37

Surf Coast

 Every week or two I hop in the car

and head off somewhere to capture images

for my blog and Facebook.

This particular morning I was on my way home

via Barwon Heads..where the Barwon River

empties into Bass Strait.

This side is Barwon Heads

cross the bridge and

one is in Ocean Grove.

 

I may have darkened this image a tad, however,

you still get the idea of the sun reflecting

on little jewels in the water.

 

Also coastlines are fabulous for

gnarled twisted trees like this one.

 

Like many of our natives trees they manage to

sprout new life from anywhere along the trunk.

 

Moving on to see if there were any surfers

at Torquay’s Beaches.

They didn’t let me down.

 

Waves may not have been huge but I think this

would give anyone an adrenaline rush.

Endeavouring to out run Mother Nature…

 

but succumbing or being over taken.


Still not a bad place to enjoy some morning exercise.

And that’s my Monday morning drive for this week.

Sports

 Travel Theme.

Three sports…

I have never tried kite surfing…

but it appears to be…

 a lot of fun and a bit dangerous judging by the helmet.

Nor have I ever been on a surf board…

 But I would just love to be competent enough to

manoeuvre as in the first two images.

However, I think this would be more my style.

 

Some shots of the inaugural

Cadell Evans Road Race.

After several hours of country road racing…

riders have three of four laps of Geelong suburbs

before a finish on the foreshore.

Finally, one shot of the Melbourne Cricket Ground

on the first Monday in June.

Collingwood versus Melbourne.

Also the scene of the

1956 Olympics and the 2006 Commonwealth Games.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Elemental

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Elemental

~~~~~

My elemental images are all from Torquay this week.I find the sea beautiful…

even when it is calm in my first two image.

 

Generating a bit more energy… 


it provides a playground for…


surfer and photographer alike.


And when it becomes… 

 

too heavy for surfing…


it is a photographer’s delight.

 

 In my opinion.
