Four seasons in a day is the typical description of the Melbourne weather. It is so true. You will never experience such a quick change in any other city, all driven by the cold wind coming from the South Pole. My most unusual experience? A drop from 40 degrees to 20 in about 5 minutes.
Have a fabulous sunset, some palms on the foreground, some bungalows on the water. What do you want more? This must be the waiting room to the paradise. It is really worth the money and effort to book a room in Bang Bao for even one night. There are not too many options at the moment, few on the high →
For any visit to Melbourne don't miss the Remembrance Shrine, a short walk from the city center. Alternatively just take any of the tram, except number 8, going out of the city, direction south. Beside being one of the national historical mark, it offers a great view from the top.
That was one of the reddest sunset I had in my life. This Thai island, Koh Chang had wonderful colours, most probably because so close to the equator. What a day kayaking through the little islands.
Back from a photo (and vacation :) trip that took me to two countries in Asia. The first one, with as many tourist in 1 year as in St.Kilda in 1 day, fully undervalued and highly suggested. The second one, very touristic. I will be posting few shots in the next few days meantime I will ride my bike through →
Docklands is always an inspiration area for many photos. The access to the water is great and you have a awesome view of the city and the Bolte bridge, 360 degrees of options.
It was windy and the clouds were moving so fast...a great photo effect
Even the boats are trembling in front of the Melbourne view !!
Never easy for the cows to parachute, one got jammed on the tree in Docklands ....
The city view. It is Friday yeahhhh! A nice weekend is waiting for us.
How close and how far away is the city in this photo. Another lovely sunset on Melbourne
It is black and white, a bit of long exposure. I was not sure what could have been the end result to this shot. I quite like it at the end
Similar photo subject to yesterday, although completely different place (Indonesia instead of Australia). I love the typical Indonesian boats here.
I am re-organising my photos for a new portfolio I want to upload on-line very soon. I came through two similar pictures, made in two far away places, although very similar outcome and colors. This is Magnetic Island, in front of Townsville
There are so many hidden bays close to Melbourne, this is another one, in Beaumaris, few kms from the city centre
A black and white sunset on the city, a different view
I love photos of the city when it comes to matching old and new architecture. Such a contrast. What is your favorite? Photos from above are all made from car parks around the city. I just ride my bike to the top and enjoy the view, making photos here and there to the interesting landscapes. I call it an unusual view →
I usually come here for windsurfing and I have always enjoyed this place, I have got so many sunset sailing. This time back only for photos
Hard to say how lucky I am to have this view. This is quite a bonus when you live in a unit on the top floor, I just hope they will not build a multi unit complex just next to me haahahah
The Blue Mountains landscape with the three sisters is pretty amazing. This is an easy place to get to, just 1 hours train from Sydney. Lovely place to visit.
I was lucky enough to capture this photo with a group of people walking through this canyon. The Blue Mountains are so big to make this people like ants. Lovely place, a must see of Australia.
Sometime the sunset can be really as nice as gold in Melbourne. The pity is that it lasts only few minutes, but that's nature, we cannot complain, isn't it?
Yes, we have got few days of rain this year. What I like more? When the storm arrives or clears in the sunset magical hour. That may be of course the photography view, ahahahha.
It was almost looking as the sun did not want to leave. It stayed there on the horizon for as long as it took me to make few photos, another "natural" model.
