Wordless Wednesday LVI: 12 Apostles at Sunset

This shot was a film shot I took in December of 2003, 11 years ago.  I’m hoping on my trip this month I might get to go back to visit this awesome coastline.  The great ocean road is gorgeous, so many amazing beaches and sites! 12 apostles- Great Ocean Road

I took the opportunity 11 years ago to go up in a helicopter it didn’t disappoint, and I had so many amazing shots from the air…this is one of my favourite ones!

Most of my photos from my year in Australia in 2003-2004…are not scanned.  I was a film SLR shooter then, I think maybe a project in 2015 might be to scan my negatives…and share some more shots from my epic year long trip living overseas.

It’s been another fantastic week here in Melbourne, Australia! The weather has been amazing—a wee bit too hot then it cooled down to a just right temperature. Its been great to reconnect with friends and hang out with my cousins!

Here’s the list of prompts for this past week…

Wordless Wednesday LV: Clyde River

It’s 2015…and I’m bringing back Wordless Wednesday’s for the year!

Clyde River-early AM

This was a shot I took back early in the morning on November 29, 2014…the flight had just landed in Clyde River from Pond Inlet (on route to Iqaluit).   I loved how the morning light was hitting the mountains behind Clyde.  I snapped this photo on the way from the plane to the terminal.
