Just another tree…

… that can host more than just a couple of full-grown people!

I’d love to hear what you think of my previous contributions to the Weekly Photo Challenge. Check out what other bloggers think is ‘(extra)ordinary‘ this week!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Letters

Melbourne’s Princes Pier is a short tram drive from the city center. Wikipedia tells us that it was name so after the Prince of Wales who visited Melbourne in 1920. The pier is an important port for cruise that sail south towards Tasmania. It is also a lovely place to walk around, get some sunshine and eat an ice-cream! This picture seemed quite the one for the Weekly Photo Challenge – Letters, up at the Daily Post. I love the way the letters project reflections in the water, isn’t it? There is more on my blog from the photo challenge as well as from my stay in Melbourne.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Layers

LayersRevealing sediments deposited on the surface of the earth, received and accepted over the ages. Demonstrating the strength of the ocean, which can carve out rocks with sheer perseverance. And manifesting the continuum of time, over which all things big and small will be created and then slowly eroded to be turned to dust.

I clicked these pictures during my stay in Australia a couple of years ago. The Great Ocean Road is an amazingly beautiful stretch of drive between Melbourne and Adelaide, with the ocean one side and patches of rain-forest on the other. The are many quaint towns on the way and many more breathtaking viewing points along the way. It’s the most beautiful road-trip I have ever been on and have great memories of. At the end of the road is a set of limestone rock formations called the Twelve Apostles, now only eight of them remaining due to heavy erosion.
