Winter landscapes

I must admit that, though I’m often a bit envious to see friends heading somewhere warm for the winter break, there is something I like a lot about winter landscapes.  Here’s some images from the last couple of weeks on the Mornington Peninsula.

The milky look of the bay early on a very cold morning at Safety Beach. It was so cold that the waves seemed sluggish.

Below: I’ve been wanting to take this shot for ages. This is Balcombe Creek, looking north from Bungower Rd. I’ve passed it often, and it’s been too busy to stop, and it’s a dangerous place with no roadside parking nearby. So, I made a special trip for this one.

Below: And, in contrast to the stillness of the bay some days, this winter break we had three days of wild and windy weather. This is Mornington Pier.

Below: This day was so gloomy that most of the shots I took were bleak and undistinguished. This was the best of those I took walking in The Briars at Mt Martha.
