Mirror Bridge

These magnificent gardens are a great place to explore. Whilst I was taken this scene, my two boys were running around, across and through the various bridges, steps and paths. The simple things really.

Melbourne, Big city of lights

Borrowed the title name from Paul Kelly lyrics. Taken overlooking the big city as a thunderstorm approaches from the North West around 11.00pm last night with tropical humidity yet again. Wasn’t that much lightning but managed to snag a couple of CG’s. This is a two image stich but only used lightning from one, the other was used to get the city closer to the centre of the image with Port Philip Bay visible.

Paddock of Gold

Noticed a build up of storm clouds out the back of my place so headed out for a bit of a look. Ended up down a dirt track that I’d never been down before trying to get a good look at a passing storm when I eyeballed this scene and promtly ran across the paddock before the light faded and rain hit

 

Johanna Gold

Image taken at the start of a 50km hike along the cliffs of the Great Ocean road from Johanna Beach to the 12 Apostles. Quite a tough section of the track with the peaks and troughs but scenery is magnificent for viewing, not so good for photography as it turns out but a good experience all the same.

 

 

 

Burning Bales

Just adding an alternative to the previous post. Totally different lighting taken only minutes apart. Whatever bundles your hay I guess…..

The Heavens

This was taken following the storm from the previous post after the main front had passed through. Spotted this little scene and proceeded to wade my way through blackberries to get to a decent spot. Worth it?

Beyond Blue

Happy New year to everyone. Been down the coast and mnaged to get down to the beach just as this thunderstorm cell was forming off the coast. When it moved inland it dropped 50mm in 20 minutes in a narrow band with reports of hail as well. Not to mention plenty of thunder and lightning. Pretty good Christmas present really. This was only one of several events for this evening which concluded with a sensational sunset, a bloody good Christmas in my books
