Sunrise on Melbourne’s

Central Business District,

April 2017.


Daily Prompt-Gorge



Victoria’s South West coastline is known

for the number of sailing vessels which came

to grief during bad weather. 

The stretch of coastline became known as

the Shipwreck Coast in the 1800s.

HMS Loch Ard hit a reef and sank

on June 1, 1878.

The only two survivors….

were washed into this gorge which

now bears the name Loch Ard Gorge.

Loch Ard Gorge is only a few minutes drive

from the Twelve Apostles and many

other formations carved out of the coastline

over the years.

As the clock was leaving last Sunday and heading

into Monday I woke to flashes of lightning and

thunder rolling around the sky.

A mad dash for camera and tripod.

And a blue sky at midnight is what happens

when the ISO is set at 2500.


I thought I had totally wasted an hour,

more by the time I uploaded to my computer.

However, these were the only one’s which

showed any lightning captures.


Hope you enjoyed.

Black and White Tuesday17-2811


Black and White Tuesday


Playtime with Candi.

The more we swing the rope, top left hand corner,

the more intense is her gaze.


She doesn’t even watch the rope…

and no matter how much I try to disguise when…

and in which direction, I am going to throw it,

most of the time she is heading

in the right direction to catch it.

A quick run back to me or MGW,

a little game of tug of war,  and…

 she is set to do it all over again.

Fortunately, for us, the warmer

the weather the shorter the game is.

 My graphics cards is faulty at the moment, I think.

Something is making the monitor go blurry.

My apologies for any typos or spelling errors

over the past few days and

in the week, or so, to come.



Hope you enjoyed.

Coloured versions of my

Black and White Tuesday


This is the sort of main road in and out of town that I like.

Lal Lal Railway Station.

 The old water tower which supplied

steam trains with water.

Long since disused.


Hope you enjoyed.
