Filled with excitement waiting for the sun to come up on a great day that followed.
Aireys Inlet, Great Ocean Road, Just too many beautiful places, crossing them off my list one at a time, it’s so very peaceful, sit and watch and take it all into my soul. Another serendipity, this is a definite go back to place, I didn’t know where to go first, arrived with a couple of peeps, up and over a sand dune and I was just in awe!!
A very sweet serene sunrise this morning at Apollo Bay, I got a bit of a soaking which seems to have set the tone for the day. Thankfully it wasn’t cold. Dare I say it’s a new love place for me?!!!
I love the texture in the rocks, easy to get to and a lovely walk at low tide
On the 10th of January 2014, I took my kids to Jan Juc for the first time, on this day it was more of a day trip rather that a photography day. Although I have been to Great Ocean Road many times, I had never heard of this beach, I saw an image somewhere and decided to explore for myself, needless to say I fell in love with it instantly! I have been to countless beautiful beaches in my time but this one has the most impact, happy memories with my kids?!!! That Indigo sky I love so much?! Over time it has become my sanctuary, my place of rest and exploration, my hideaway and sometimes even my conference room. On my first visit I found this cave and have not been able to find it since, a little serendipity…it’s led me to find so much more, although looking through my files from 2 years ago, I have found many clues and realised I have walked straight past it many times! The tide can hide and reveal so much. I have been working of this project on and off for the past two years, lots of research and mapping out, although the more I look the more I find, it’s just spectacular. I have my markers in place so continuing on this journey for as long as it takes, venturing out to my childhood places to The Bellarine Peninsula and Mornington Peninsula in between! And a few Overseas trips. I wish I could just say “beam me up Scotty” to each location on my list and “Surprise Me!”.
I love that one of my kids my sitting right beside me when I took this shot.
If you have been following my travels you will know that last week I went left of my centre to Queenscliff, I met the lovely Allan who asked for some of my work to display at RoRo, 5 pieces from my printed gallery are now on display for all to enjoy, all images are available for purchase, off the wall or Re prints to your desired size, so if you are down that way, be sure to stop in for a great meal and drink, and enjoy the view, it spectacular!!! I got my shoot fix, this time the tide was in and my rocky pier was ummmm, safe!!! The things we do for love 😊
A great day out, connecting both bays, Queens Cliff looking over to the Mornington Peninsula, I didn’t realise how close, 45 minute crossing with Searoad Ferries.
Free Friday, feeling nostalgic Thursday night, I decided to visit left of my centre for a day visit, Queenscliff is a place I came fishing with my dad when I was a girl, I caught my first squid! and it holds some very fond memories for me. I thought it was a great idea to stop off and get something to eat first, nice Pastie!! While I was paying for it I looked out out over her should out the window to my delight I saw a very cool old pier and the amazing view of Point Nepean, my shot already created in my mind! being lunch time and busy, I went outside to enjoy food, watching the waves crash and do it’s dance, like a good Australia I put the paper bag in my pocket only to realise later the sauce spilled out, mmm does that make me Saucy now?! I went for a walk, revisiting some of my fav spots, thinking I will come back later to shoot for the inside of the cafe… I ordered a hot chocolate and the staff were more than friendly allowing me to rearrange the furniture. My mission today was to connect both bays that I have been photographing over the last 3 years, to unite them, just like the sea ferry does, must do that crossing again and shoot from the other side, it’s been awhile. So if you are heading down to Queencliff be sure to stop in and enjoy that amazing view with something yum to eat and drink.
