Fun with Fog


After a couple of spectacularly gorgeous Autumnal days here in Adelaide, South Australia, this morning brought in a significant amount of fog.
The opportunity to get out there and capture some foggy shots was too good to miss, so headed off to local Wynn Vale Dam with my photo friend, where we spent an exciting couple of hours.  Following are the results - hope you enjoy them and are able to capture the atmosphere.
























 On our way back to the car, we spotted this Koala dozing way up high



What a delightful start to the day - which went on to become another glorious expression of Autumn "down under".

Sand, Sea & Sky

The homeward journey to South Australia from Victoria - 
along the magnificent Great Ocean Road.

Australian Parrots

Still in Victoria, out of Geelong en route to the Great Ocean Road,
stopped off for a coffee break (as you do), and came across
these delightful King Parrots (males) and Crimson Rosella.
(sorry that images are blurry - taken through glass window 
so as not to disturb them!)

Surfing Australia

A day trip out of Geelong led to Bells Beach, a renowned surf beach some 100kms south-west of Melbourne, on the Great Ocean Road near the town of Torquay.  Bells Beach is named after John Cavert Bell of the family that first took up a pastoral run there in the 1840s. (credit Wikipedia)

It was a blustery, grey day, but the avid surfers were having a glorious time.





Surprisingly, the sand on the shore was not the usual bright white colour one associates with Australian beaches.


Oops!  Maybe Surfing "Down Under" ??!



. . .  and this cute fellow caught my eye as I walked back up from the observation deck to the car park!

Barwon River

 The beautiful Barwon River in Geelong, providing a peaceful environment for walkers, runners, kayakers and rowers. The riverside pathways are wonderfully shady too - much appreciated on hot days when walking the dog!

Extraordinary art

My recent stay in Victoria's Dandenong Ranges included a visit to the extraordinary William Ricketts Sanctuary.

William Ricketts was a naturalist, environmentalist and sculptor who dedicated much of his life to exploring the connection that Aboriginal people have with the natural world.  (For further information, courtesy of culture.com, check out this link - A brief history of William Ricketts Sanctuary


























It was a great day to visit too, with temperatures in the mid teens (C)
and occasional brief showers which released the wonderful
fragrances of nature throughout the walk.
