goodbye for now



days colour

a fading sunset

cover up

Another sunset at Ricketts Point with the middle photo looking across towards the You Yangs. These large hills dominate the Western edge of Port Phillip Bay.

The view from the top is magnificent looking around the bay sweeping down past the city of Melbourne. Towards the North one sees Mt Macedon and immediately below to the South West is Geelong. Before Europeans  arrived, (invaded) Indigenous people used these hills for watching and communicating with smoke.

    1. Thanks Joyce. I was hand holding my Pentax K5(2S) with a Sigma 18-250 zoom. The first 2 shots are on the same evening the top photo at 18 and the middle one zoomed to 250. The bottom shot is on another night against the widest angle, I thought it added to a sequence for the Haiku.

        1. Thanks for the compliment. The camera has an anti shake and the lens has an optical stabiliser, so they both work most of the time when the object is not moving. I have 2 tripods including one with a mono lift off but I am usually too lazy. I also have a 150-500 mm lens on an older Pentax K200D and tend to rely on the anti shake and OS with them as well, again safe if the object is not moving!!
