Here's a few images from the last week or so...once again quite a range of conditions has kept me quiet busy. The last one here, taken this morning, shows the remnants of the huge downpour out at Lake Burrumbeet last Sunday evening when 200ml of rain fell in that massive storm....I could almost convince you it was taken somewhere far more exotic...Northern Territory perhaps?
If you are looking for something to do on a Sunday I have a new range of images on display at the Golden City Paddle Steamer Museum, next to the Boatshed Restaurant, at Lake Wendouree. There is also a range of images of lake birds from a number of other photographers. The Museum is open on Sundays from 10am - 4pm and they will also be running Paddle Steamer Boat Tours when the conditions are right, with a member of the Birds Ballarat group along for the ride to share their knowledge about some of the 144 species sighted at the Lake. You've got until Easter to make a visit.
There was very nice, surprise sunset last Sunday with the added bonus of the rainbow. And then a bit of action on Friday evening at Lake Wendouree....apart from that it's been a hazy, uneventful week. Luckily the birds at Lake Wendouree have given me something to play around with. The last one is a juvenile, nankeen night heron that's been visiting this spot for the last few mornings....as soon as he realises you're there, he's off!
On Monday morning, very early, I made the hike up the Face Track to the top of the Mt Roland plateau. I had been planning to do it on Sunda...
