TWO BRIDGES

Barwon Heads, Australia

Tuesday 28 August 2012

When the bridge across the Barwon River needed replacing, there was a lot of local 'anger' at the thought of the much loved icon being replaced with something different. Because of this, the authorities rebuilt the bridge in it's original form and created a new pedestrian bridge, making it saver and wider on the old bridge for cars. (305/365)

SERENE SWIRLS

Erskine Falls, Australia

Friday 24 August 2012

Just below the Erskine Falls, the river meanders through the forest floor, creating beautiful swirls and lines as the water navigates the moss covered rocks. Add a slower shutter speed and the water also softens and looks even more serene.

SUN BURST

Bay of Islands, Australia

Saturday 10 August 2012

What a pleasant surprise when visiting the Bay of Islands yesterday. A beautiful sun burst lighting a very angry sea. With the exception of strong wind gusts coming straight from the south pole, the views were extraordinary.

MAGICAL LIGHT

Port Stephens, Australia

8 August 2012

Before the sun pops over the horizon is a magical time, often with wonderful & unusual light. A large bank of clouds on the horizon can prolong this time as it did on this occasion when I was on the north coast of New South Wales.

THE ROWERS

Geelong, Australia

Thursday 16 August 2012

You have to admire the dedication of competitive rowers. No matter how cold it is, there is always a team or two of rowers on the Barwon River at sunrise doing laps of the rowing course, improving their technique and fitness for the next race.

THE AUSTRALIAN BUSH

Lorne, Australia

Saturday 4 August 2012

There is nothing quite like the Australian Bush, particularly in the wetter areas where tree ferns are in abundance and meandering streams flow. The dappled light filtering through the trees softens the harsh Australian light and the whole experience makes one feel a peace with the world!

CITY CIRCLE TRAMS

Melbourne, Australia

Thursday 2 August 2012

Melbourne if fortunate to have a fleet of old W Class trams that circle the CBD and provide a free ride for tourists. These trams are specially coloured red and gold and give passengers a glimpse of an era in public transport spanning 60 years from the early 1920's.
