winter evening


cold water

gentle rippling swell

evening comes


cold water


gentle rippling swell


evening comes

Sometimes as we wait to discover the sunset display for the evening other natural elements entertain us. A few days ago on the Black Rock cliffs a gentle breeze playing on the bay provided a beautiful pattern across the water surface. Humans are very creative but I suspect all our ideas are out there in the natural world waiting to stimulate imaginations.

goodbye for now

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.

fading energy

so peaceful


Another beautiful sunset at Ricketts Point. At this time early in September the sun sets directly behind the You Yangs on the Western side of Port Phillip Bay.

Jill wondered last night how significant this experience would have been to the local Aboriginal Bunwurrong as they farewelled another day probably feasting on the abundance of seafood available to them.
