Definitely Worthwhile!

On Friday morning before sunrise the sky was dark and overcast, so I didn't head out for the sunrise. However, whilst I was having breakfast a bit later I noticed the clouds had started to break up and by going out the front where I can get a glimpse of the top of Mt Warrenheip, I had an inkling it might be worthwhile to see what I could find. I'm glad I did!

Dean and Clarke

On the way out to Dean Reservoir on Thursday morning the sky was looking pretty clear. Luckily the clouds and colour in these first 2 images developed before my eyes and with the addition of this family of swans I was able to capture some nice images.
On the way back to Ballarat through the Clarkes Hill area I caught another couple of images - some great layering in the last one.

Keep Your Opens Open.......

Wednesday morning was looking a bit dull at Lake Wendouree here in Ballarat. However if you search around you can always find something worthwhile and eventually the sky did put on a bit of a show over Mt Warrenheip. Before that happened I caught a couple of cormorants sitting in this group of trees on one of the small islands on the west side of the lake. The swirling sky in the background added some great drama. And then whilst keeping a watchful eye on the swallows, I grabbed only the one image as they took off for their ritual swarming fly by.

Lake Learmonth Wonder

A fantastic morning on Tuesday at Lake Learmonth where the foggy conditions gave me plenty to work with. My favourite is the first one here that shows the massive fog bank slowly floating across the lake and in the distance you can see the carpet of fog sitting over the landscape
And the birds at the lake also put on quite a show ......

What a Difference a Day Makes.........

Monday morning out at Lake Learmonth was grey and moody........
This morning was a totally different story with some great foggy conditions. The second image here is looking across the lake to almost the same spot as where I was the previous day...quite amazing, isn't it?!
A lot more to come from this morning, too.........

Morning Has Broken

Some nice atmospherics from the side of Mt Buninyong on Sunday morning. I've been here many times and it always offers something nice. A bank of low lying fog shielded the sunrise and when it did break free the light and colour was intense.

Saturday Storm

On Saturday morning I was out west of Ballarat and soon realised I had to chase the clouds down to Cardigan South to get them into just the right position for the sunrise. Some great texture in the skies really added to the drama and was a bit of a forerunner for some stormy weather later in the day that produced a nice rainbow on the north side of Lake Wendouree. In the last tree image here can you see the birds right at the top of the tree?
