Sunrise on The You Yangs

The You Yang ranges are situated…

between Melbourne and Geelong.

This time of year they can make a good back drop for a sunrise.

As the year progresses sunrise will move further south,

or to the right of this image.

~~~~~

Hope you enjoyed.

Point Lonsdale Sunset

Ventured down to Point Lonsdale again…

on Thursday evening for some sunset photos.


This is my favourite.

 Considering the Lighthouse was

nearly black in the original, I like the result.

However, being a bit more objective

I think the clouds are overdone.

~~~~~

Hope you enjoyed.

I drove to Point Lonsdale on Monday,

in the hope of a good sunrise

A large cloud bank blocked any

nice reflections off the lighthouse.

But I did manage this over the water shot

of a well risen sun.

 

As well as these two as the sun crept higher…

into the sky over nearby Queenscliff.

Hope you enjoyed.

It is the shortest day of 2017,

so what better way to spend a

Wednesday afternoon in winter...

than with a stretch after a game of fetch, or…

a favourite bone.

Hope you enjoyed.

One thing I do like about visiting

 Europe is the late sunsets.At the moment we a pitch black by 1800 or shortly thereafter.

I had to wait another five minutes before

the Bell Tower lights were turned on.

So at nearly 2200, with the moon high in the sky

and some street lights on it was still not

dark enough to light up the Bell Tower.

Dinner at St Germain’s was long past.

Finally the lights were turned on…

 

and I discovered I was not the only person

in La Place des Heros waiting to take a photo.

Some of these were posted in Cee’s Black and White (Lights) Challenge.

Recently I visited the

Serendip Sanctuary

just outside Geelong.

A Magpie Goose…perhaps.

Female Fairy, or Blue Wren.

Cape Barren Goose.

First time I ever sighted one was

in the Toronto Zoo in 1976.

Along way from home to sight a local bird.

Hope you enjoyed.
