Baled Up

I've been waiting for the right light at this field of bales for a few days now, and on Tuesday morning it was just about perfect. Out west of Ballarat, I don't think I've ever seen so many bales in the one paddock and I knew from up high the early morning golden light would be great with the long shadows.



I'm running a bit late getting todays post out there......
Not a lot to work with on Monday though I quite like this star amongst the trees at the North Gardens on the west side of Lake Wendouree. And these quiet days gives me a chance to post a few catch up images from the last couple of weeks...and quite a smorgasbord it is....

Sunday Scenics

Sunday morning started quite foggy on the top of Mt Buninyong. However it didn't take too long for the fog to clear and once the sun broke through it changed the whole landscape. When I headed out this morning I was tempted to visit Mt Warrenheip...however I would never have got the view in the last one here...that's Mt Warrenheip from Mt Buninyong.


The Rewards of the Cold

On Saturday it felt like we had gone back to winter with cold winds and rain on and off throughout the day. However, it was well worth any discomfort as it gave me some conditions I haven't had for quite a while. This set were taken out around Windermere and Burrumbeet, north of the freeway, late afternoon when some interesting clouds convinced me to head out then, rather than waiting for the sunset. Worked out quite well, I reckon!


A Bonus End

We got some welcome rain on Friday here in Ballarat and district on a mostly grey day. I was watching the Big Bash and around 8.15pm I noticed the light had brightened outside, so I made my way up to Lake Wendouree where I was treated to a real bonus end to the day. The four yachts I have been photographing recently made a nice focus point for this series as the clouds put on a fantastic display. I really love the painterly reflections in the second one here.


Twenty Nine Minutes of Sky

Some awesome skies on Thursday morning out on the west side of Lake Burrumbeet. These are taken 29 minutes apart and it's interesting to see how the clouds in the first image quickly developed as the sun rose. This is a spot I visit frequently...and these clouds are why I keep going back!


Wednesday Wonder

Just a few pelicans on Wednesday morning......with a few friends. 6
