season changeover

Tonight Jill and I walked down the end of our street, through the Sandringham shopping centre over Beach Road and across to the cliffs anticipating an interesting sunset to farewell the last day of Autumn. We were not disappointed however the sun was so intense behind the thin cloud layers I struggled to focus the surrounds having to keep the lens back near 35mm as in the first image, then a rare one worked on 250mm as in the second shot.  We are lucky to witness scenes like this within 10 minutes walk from home.

I am sure Ronovan was trying to lure me away from sunset images/haiku with this weeks challenge however I was up to it. RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge 99 Flag&Fallen where haiku poets from all over the world unite in creativity.                                                                                                                              To be seen at https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/2016/05/30/ronovanwrites-weekly-haiku-poetry-prompt-challenge-99-flagfallen/

    1. Thanks Laura. The last few nights it has been down near 3-5 oC on the coast here. Inland at the outer suburbs -1 and 0. During Winter snow falls in the hills on the North and North Eastern fringe of Melbourne. The lowest maximum during a really cold Winter’s day could be down to 7 oC but a cold wind chill factor can drop that. Overall except for some nights the climate in our part of Melbourne is fairly moderate. Its the Summer days of over 40 oC that are bad.
