FIRE IN THE SKY

Aireys Inlet, Australia

Friday 27 April 2012

Some times getting up early in the morning can be rewarding. Walking in the dark down to the beach in the cold seemed a silly idea at the time, but within an hour we were rewarded with one of the best sunrises I have ever seen. Because the Split Point Lighthouse is silhouetted against the fiery sky, the experience was even more magical.

BOARD WALK

Torquay, Australia

Tuesday 17 April 2012

Where Spring Creek meets the Torquay Surf Beach, a sandbank holds back the water at low tide and creates the feeling of a small lake. There is a board walk that skirts the edge and allows you access to the lookout at the end. I love this picture because of the unusual clouds that formed that day.

SUN RAYS

Point Lonsdale, Victoria

Wednesday 11 April 2012

An early morning expedition to Point Lonsdale was rewarded with a beautiful sunrise over Port Phillip Bay. The rocks on this stretch of the coast are very rugged resulting in small pools of water left behind when the tide goes out.

TWILIGHT IN THE CITY

After a great day of photography in Melbourne, my daughter Emma & I stopped on the Princes Bridge to take a few last shots. This is the Yarra River as it passes Federation Square with Collins Street buildings in the background.

HMB ENDEAVOUR

Hobart, Australia

Saturday 7 April 2012

I found the replica of Captain Cook's famous ship, "HMB Endeavour" in Hobart last week. Next to it was the "Bob Barker", one of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society's ships. Both were allowing the public to take guided tours aboard, with the experience being completely different (several centuries different!).
