A Sunrise, a Pod of Pelicans, Some Sheep and a Misty Tree

Today's title sums up Tuesday mornings collection of images. You can probably guess where the first 2 are from. It might surprise you to know that the last misty image was taken in Creswick Road, right in front of the Selkirk Factory, opposite the Northern Oval.......


The Weekly Times

As a follow up to the Bureau of Meteorology Weather calendar, I came across this article on the Weekly Times website......and they also printed my image in the actual paper, so that was pretty nice to see.

And a couple of recent images from up high, but not with the drone. The first one here is from about 10 days ago from the side of Mt Buninyong at the same spot the calendar image was taken. The second image from about a week ago off the side of Mt Warrenheip. What’s interesting about these 2 is that the first shows how intense the colour can be when the sun has just risen, whilst the second was taken about an hour after sunrise when the colour has left the view, though the fog was hanging around for a long time this day. Can you see the bird in the tree in the top half of the image?!


The Berry No. 1

This building may be familiar to some of you, especially if you have ever been on one of my workshops. The Berry No. 1 Mine was part of the goldfields north of Creswick, this spot north at Lawrence and is the best remaining example of one of the buildings, this being the old pump house. I've taken many images of this over the years and on Monday morning some early morning sunlight added some nice intense colours to the red bricks. A stop just around the corner a bit later on the way home shows some of the great wheat fields in the district at the moment.


Sunday Set

No clouds at all on Sunday morning so I had to work from up high looking down. These 3 image were taken out along Harris Road on the way to Mt Egerton and not too far from the Lal Lal Reservoir, which you can see in the second image. The pine plantation always looks good from above and the once the sun had risen the light changed dramatically.


Buninyong and Burrumbeet

I've got millions of images here to work through so here's a couple from the last few days.
Another lovely sunrise from Mt Buninyong on Friday, and then a scene from out on the west side of Lake Burrumbeet...as you can see the harvest is in full swing around the district at the moment.


A Tale of Two Lakes

Saturday morning started with a pretty nice sunrise at Lake Burrumbeet. I used to be able to drive to this part of the lake shore, however access has been blocked for some time now so it's a bit of hike, though well worth as this small island and it's trees always seems to offer something worthwhile.
Later in the day around 5pm a big downpour hit (remember to keep your windows closed at home when the rain is coming in from the east with a big wind behind it!). We had 15mm in a very short burst whilst the "official" Ballarat recording station at the Airport didn't receive a drop. I had a feeling it might pass through before sunset and so I was up at Lake Wendouree's south east corner for some beautiful, calm conditions, first looking across to the Yacht Club and then moving around to the right this view of the small pavilion on View Point.


The Tower at the Top

On Friday morning well before dawn I was heading around the north side of Lake Wendouree when I looked across towards Mt Buninyong and realised that's where I needed to be! Whilst Mt Warrenheip was clear, I could see hanging over the top of Buninyong a nice canopy of low lying cloud, so I did a u-turn and headed out that way. I arrived in plenty of time, however it wasn't till just on the sunrise that some of the clouds started to light up above the mountain and lookout tower, and this is the result. As you can imagine I captured a number of images, however I like to let the occasional image bask in it's own glory.
