Over the holiday period we had a few days away.  We stayed at Port Albert, a small village which was once one of the colony of Victoria's busiest ports!

 

First stop on the way down was at Agnes Falls

Agnes Falls

 

Looked quite nice, but access was only to the top of the falls.

 

Another trip was to 90 Mile Beach.

90 Mile Beach

 

This extends from just east of Port Albert all the way to Lakes Entrance - ironically, the opening of the channel at Lakes Entrance was one of the factors in the demise of Port Albert.

 

On our return trip, we spent a day at Wilson's Promontory.

Picnic Beach - Wilsons Promontory 

 

We walked along a series of such beaches - I could have kept going even further, but didn't have enough gear with me.

The detail in these photos is amazing, Chris. I would lift the shadows a bit though as they seem a bit dark on my monitors (which are set quite bright). 

Looking at them in a few different screns, I think you are probably right - I've probably been a bit too focused on avoiding blown highlights.

      Another one of the Old Melbourne Series.  This is the original from the State Library collection, dated around 1858.  You can just make out the water fall that was the reason for Melbourne's location - fresh water above the falls and access to the bay and onto the ocean below the fall.  A little time later some one had the cleaver idea of dynamiting the falls so they could get boats further up river, but so could the salt water from the bay.  By 1890, the construction of Queens Bridge restricted the height of vessels travelling any further upriver.

      Probably a little too far to the left from the original, but there is now a flower bed, flagpole and railway viaduct that make creating a good copy difficult.

      This is from a couple of weeks ago.  The poor little thing was getting mobbed by a flock of seagulls and finally settled on the wall close to me. I must have seemed less threatening than the gulls.

      A few from a recent trip to Sydney.
       

      Landmarks - all in one picture!
       

      & @ night 
       

      View from small park further back - a nice little pocket of green and peacefulness among the city bustle.
       

      Through the blinds - as we sat down for dinner, the setting sun was visible through the blinds and created a nice painterly image.
       
      It was a bit of a challenging trip with quite a bit of disruption on the way up - my first flight was cancelled before I even set out to the airport, the replacement got as far as Canberra before circling for about 90 minutes then returning to Melbourne and after a bit of waiting again to get rebooked I got home around 11pm before the third flight at 7am on Saturday morning eventually got me there.
