The Grotto is perhaps the most enchanting of all the rock formations in this part of Australia along the Great Ocean Road . Part-blowhole, part-archway, part-cave, it offers a peaceful place to enjoy the sea views and soak in the wonderful things nature is capable of.

The Grotto at the Great Ocean Road

Standing about halfway up the cliff from the sea level, the geological formation is reachable via a decked staircase that leads down from the viewing platform at the top. You can either view the wonder from above, or head down and explore it at eye-level.

Inside, the Grotto is filled with smooth boulders and serene rock pools that have been carved out of the limestone. For the best view, look into the Grotto from the lower viewing platform, where you can see the horizon, the pools, and the jutting rock formations in one go.

Why do I do this

Lazy, or something else, Haven’t been editing my Australia photos as quickly as I would have liked to. Have not even touched the ones I took in Hong Kong. I think, no, I know, I have not taken my camera out but only once since January. I think I am slightly depressed as I am not able to create anything new, I plan, I plan again, but then I don’t get anything done. My head is in a mist.

Have you been at this kind of a slump in your photography. You know, why do this, there are so many better, more creative and talented people out there. Who cares. Point being, I have always done this for me, never had any real ambition to be something. Just to share, the world as I see it. Come spring, hopefully, I will get back on the track.

Misty Beach

Victoria, Brighton Beach

Brighton Beach

Here you have 82 distinctive bathing boxes, a row of uniformly proportioned wooden structures lining the foreshore at Brighton Beach.

Built well over a century ago in response to very Victorian ideas of morality and seaside bathing, the bathing boxes remain almost unchanged. All retain classic Victorian architectural features with timber framing, weatherboards and corrugated iron roofs, though they also bear the hallmarks of individual licencees’ artistic and colourful embellishments.

Just try to resist pulling out your camera and snapping away, I for sure was not able to do that! Text from https://www.visitvictoria.com/

Sydney~7 ~Bondi Beach

In Sydney, you have to see to Bondi Beach, right, after a busy day of seeing sights in the city we decided to see if for ourselves. We ended up staying there only for few hours. We sat watching the waves and surfers. I don’t know how they do it… the surfers.

the beautiful blues of the ocean

the surfers caught my eye …for a reason


Surfers

Then came the clouds.

and slowly passed the beach

We left the beach with the rainbow behind us.

February 11

I’ve been home for a week, trying to recover from the time difference. Catching up with work and all the normal stuff at home. I am trying to go through my photos, all  2035 + of them.  This photo has all the elements I enjoy, sea, sand, clouds and sun. Florida shots (341 of 2035)

I sat on one of these rocks for a long time watching the waves hit the rocks. Meditating to me. Then I started taking photos of it…these are from Boynton Beach, FL.

 

Bird watching

Yesterday was if one is to believe forecast the last warm day and the temperatures are going to fall. I took the opportunity and went out to take photos. Lately I haven’t had much time to dedicate to this dear hobby of mine. Swans, ducks and goose are what I saw yesterday.
