Contrasts

Some striking contrasts on Monday starting with a very misty morning at Mt Warrenheip. I had a battle keeping the moisture of the lens in the first 2 images here, though they do add a nice feel to the images. 
And then just after sunset there was the first Supermoon of 2019, this time rising over the Fly Fishers Clubrooms at Lake Wendouree.

A Couple of Mountains

Chasing the conditions on Sunday saw me down at Mt Buninyong where the sun managed to find a way through the low lying fog over the mountain in the first two images here. Not long after this on the way through to Yendon this small dam often catches my eye, and then swinging back past Mt Warrenheip, the sun was just cresting the top of the mountain....I really love the rainbow colours on the edges of the cloud in this one.

20 Minutes


On Friday I went down to Melbourne to do an online interview with the Bureau of Meteorology about their Weather Calendar and photography. The BOM is in a huge building at 700 Collins Street and I must admit it was a bit of a thrill to see a poster right on the street, wrapped around one of the pillars outside the main entrance, with my Mt Buninyong June image on display. 
And if you have a spare 20 minutes, you can take a look at all the fun here...

From Start to Finish

The highlight of Friday morning at Lake Wendouree was when this kayaker came along and launched right next to where I had been for the previous half an hour or more.....
However, it was the sunset that was the real star of the day. Starting off with some nice clouds above a fleet of small yachts awaiting Saturdays regatta, once the colour fired up around the old fountain it was a spectacular show after a mostly grey day.

The Blue Hour

A couple of simple "blue hour" images at Lake Wendouree on Thursday morning. 
The blue hour (from French l'heure bleue) is the period of twilight in the morning or evening, during the civil and nautical stages, when the Sun is at a significant depth below the horizon and residual, indirect sunlight takes on a predominantly blue shade.
As you can see it was very calm and the light reflections were really nice.

Grass

Here's some local grasses, the first 2 from Wednesday morning and the 3rd from earlier in the week....

Colour All ROund

A colourful day on Tuesday started with a great sunrise at Lake Burrumbeet and ended with another nice sunset at Lake Wendouree....
