Following are scenes of Venus Bay in Gippsland, Victoria.
The name of the bay was apparently bestowed by an expedition led by French explorer Nicholas Baudin.
It was a particularly cold and blustery day, but I couldn't resist venturing out!
The mist from the ocean's spray blew in along the coast - direct from Bass Strait
The power in the crashing waves I found somewhat hypnotic!
The Sooty Oystercatchers, Pacific Gulls and Silver-backed Gulls searched for morsels of food in the sand and in the water
Perhaps a territorial dispute in progress?!
The noise from the crashing, turbulent waves was thunderous!
Here, one can see the turbulence of the water as sand is churned up from the ocean floor
and flicked through the air as the waves complete their cycle
(I just like the different textures of timber, sand & grass in this one)
(I wasn't the only one out braving that biting wind!)
A Pacific Gull (I think a juvenile as the tip of its beak hasn't yet turned orange)
