Monochrome Madness 2 – 20

This past week I have been down the bottom end of Australia, well almost, in Victoria with the lovely Leanne Cole.  She graciously took me around some of her wonderful state, going to the Great Ocean Road, Apollo Bay and surrounds. Whilst there we took the road less travelled and meandered our way up a dirt road full of surprises.  Our first stop was at the Redwoods – an interesting place just off the road where the light was shining through these very tall trees.  It started to rain lightly and I turned around to see the sun still shining through but specks of rain as well.  Unfortunately the photo did not pick up the rain mist but did show the suns rays trying to warm us up through the trees.

    • Thanks so much WC as I’ve commented to someone else, we were so lucky that it happened as it had been raining and overcast. Looks like sometimes we can be lucky with the weather 🙂


  4. You know funnily enough, I have an almost similar to that, I wonder how that could have happened. LOL
    Great shot, I love the sunrays.

      • Sshhh, don’t let everyone know. I don’t want people to know I can’t be original.
        No problem, there, you would have a similar one to that too, I no doubt. I had to get out of the pj’s, needed food.

      • Not as good you know but yes I do have one. It was actually harder than it looked to get the right composition. It wasnt all equal and some of the background wasnt right so where you took this and at that angle was pretty well on the money :)….. yes I finally got out of mine too. It was drizzling with rain all day and it was kinda a PJ day 🙂

    • Thanks Robyn. Leanne and I found the Redwoods along the dirt road leading to Hopetoun Falls. It was just off the road and quite unique. It had been overcast and we were nearly finished and the sun came out between the trees. How lucky can you be sometimes 🙂
