Sunrise Sunset

Sunrise and sunset at Lake Wendouree on Thursday gave me a couple of contrasting images. Just enough colour with a few clouds for the sunrise, and by taking many, many images I finally caught a couple of ibis making an early morning dash.
Later in the day some great clouds above View Point promised a spectacular sunset...that never eventuated.......nice clouds, though!

Wednesday at Wattle Flat

On a cloudless Wednesday evening I found a few nice images out around Wattle Flat and Glen Park. The late setting sun casts a very yellow glow over everything though it wasn't as warm as it looks! A last stop at Glen Park to visit Fred and Harriet, the camels (I'm not sure which is which though that is their real names!), as a small friend looks on...an amazing sight so close to Ballarat!

Intense or Subtle?

Some amazing colour at Lake Wendouree on Tuesday morning. I had to dash up to the lake to catch these! And though the colour looking directly at the rising sun was amazing, I think I prefer the more subtle colours further to the north.

Monday Morning Magic

I had a great time on Monday morning out south of Bungaree around the Lal Lal Creek Valley. Some fantastic low lying fog created some lovely images both before and after sunrise. And a stop on the way home to catch the lingering fog amongst the gums just out of Dunnstown was a great finish to the morning. 
Though later in the day was pretty nice, too......!

Birds-Eye Views

A couple of very different birds-eye views from Sunday. First up is this visitor, an Eastern Rosella, to the backyard in the morning. Then later in the day just on dusk, a birds-eye view of the Ballarat High School that always looks great when the lights come on.

A Simple Scene

On Saturday I visited my brother at Beremboke. I doubt anyone knows where that is.......it's south of Ballan and his property borders the Brisbane Ranges National Park. Being on top of a hill, this is the view looking out towards Port Phillip Bay - not a bad place to put the feet up!

Photo of the Day

I was pleased to get one of my Yellowstone images selected for "Photo of the Day" on the Earthshots website during the week. This is a tough gig to get as they get hundreds of submissions daily from some of the best photographers around...it's actually the second time I've scored a showing here!
This is the original link.......well worth a look to go back through previous daily winners.....
