Coobowie Sunrise.

Coobowie sunrise, it doesn't getmuch better when on holidays than to see the sun come up over the water. This early morning photo was taken before the wind picked up which it seems to do in theis part of the world. Coobowie is located on the York Peninsula in South Australia.

Wool Bay.

Wool Bay and Port Giles jetties can be found not too many kilometres north of Edithburgh and Coobowie at the bottom of York Peninsula, a popular holiday destination within South Australia. This photo was taken from the road going down to the Wool Bay jetty looking out towards Port Giles silo complex.

Colours of Autumn.

Autumn colours at the Mount Loft Botanical Gardens in the Adelaide hills during 2008. It was a quick trip with limited time there before work after seeing some pictures in the daily newspaper during the morning. Next year we will be ready for the change of colour and will spend the day there with the cameras.

Pink Roadhouse Oodnadatta

It looks a little worse for wear, but the Pink Roadhouse at Oodnadatta on the Oodnadatta track in the outback of South Australia must have been hit by a strong wind shortly before we arrive there in August 2008. While the outside looked a little rough, in interior was what one would expect in an isolated location of the outback.

Arno Bay

Up early to capture this sunrise at Arno Bay on the eastern side of Eyre Peninsula South Australia where it was followed by a perfect day. We were on our way home to Adelaide from Port Lincoln when we spent the night here in the Caravan Park at Arno Bay.

The old Telegraph Station at Alice Springs in the Northern Territory can be found just north of Alice Spring where guided tours are offered which will explain what the people endured so many years ago to establish and maintain communication in the vast outback of Australia.

Out driving during a weekend visit to Wallaroo South Australia, we came across this beach at Balgowan South Australia. The sand is firm enough to allow vehicles to drive along the coast. The day started of with light rain but by the time we had reached Balgowan, the sky was starting to break up allowing the water to gain some rich blue colour.

Pinnacle Lookout.

One of Australia's great places to visit would have to be the Grampians situated in the state of Victoria. This photo was taken from the Pinnacle Lookout which has magnificent view of the township of Halls Gap. A level of fitness is required to allow the hiker to safely climb to this lookout, but well worth the effort once you have reached it.

Fun on the Beach

Nothing like a free run on the beach to keep fit. The only problem here is that they don't get on the beach as often as they would like. The fur was being pushed to the right of the screen, not by the speed of their running but by the force of the wind blowing all weekend.

More Desert Colours.

Following on from the sand dune image with the red tone, here is another one which has the sandy yellow tone. This result was gained by having the sun in front of the camera lens during the middle of the day.

Simpson Desert

After a trip to the Simpson Desert in the top end of South Australia during late August of 2008, we enjoyed many days and nights on the road exploring the vast outback. It was amazing to watch the sand colours change from a yellow to a rich red as seen here by this red tone. This photo was taken with the early sunrise to my back.

Diver Bridge.

With the new Diver Bridge opening to traffic today, Sally & I thought that we would brave the cold last night and drive to Port Adelaide and take some photos of the bridge. It was very cold in the Port, but hopefully the photos made the trip worth while.

Lion Cub.

Monarto Zoo is located in South Australia between Adelaide and Murray Bridge some 70 kilometres east of Adelaide. This little Lion cub didn't mind posing for the cameras while sunning itself on a rock.

Red Cliffs.

Ardrossan South Australia has some red clay type cliffs which run to the north and south sides of the local town jetty. It was out of bed early last weekend to capture some sunrise photographs of the cliffs. Unfortunately there was a fair bit of cloud cover blocking the sun during the start of the sunrise which has reduced some of the red effect on the cliff walls.

12 Apostles.

The 12 Apostles are constantly being pelted by the Southern Ocean waves daily and in many years to come there may no longer be the number of Apostles that stand today. The 12 Apostles form part of the Great Ocean Road in the western part of Victoria Australia.

Blue Lake.

Mount Gambier's Blue Lake is bright blue during the warmer period of each year as seen in this photo. The water is crystal clear to look at when up close when the lake is blue. During the off time of the year when it isn't blue, the lake appears to be a dark blue/green colour.

MacKenzie Falls.

MacKenzie Falls is part of the Grampians National Park in Victoria. While this photo was taken only this month, the reduced amount of water flowing over the Falls during summer will increase after the winter rains making for a more impressive photo.

Low Water.

Meningie is nestled on the banks of Lake Albert in the south east of South Australia. This photo was taken standing from the Lake Albert Caravan Park looking across the lake back towards the township of Meningie. Normally the bare ground would be covered with water if it were not for our current drought. The only benefit to the low water level would have to be the increased safety to children who now have a great swimming beach instead of walking down the bank into deep water.

London Bridge.

London Bridge is part of Victoria's Great Ocean Road area where thousands of tourist flock to view some of natures coastal scenery. The tourist strip in this part of Australia stretches from Warrnambool in the western part of the State to Geelong near Melbourne. The section known as London Bridge was once connected to the mainland until the piece collapsed leaving a small group of tourist stranded on the outer section. The group were eventually lifted back to the mainland via helicopter.
