Weekend Wanderings: Early Trip to Flinders
Back in January I took a trip to Flinders, a town on the coast and while I posted the photos that I took around the Flinders pier I never showed the ones of the blowhole that I took just out of town. I was thinking of using them and to my delight I discovered I had already processed them. Today I thought I would show them to you. I plan on showing some other photos of the same place soon, maybe tomorrow, but taken about a month ago.
The sun was out on this morning, but the tide was coming in so we couldn’t see a lot. Apparently there is a blowhole there, one day I’m sure I will see it, but I haven’t yet. I really like the rocks.
I tried doing some long exposures. The wind was going in the wrong direction however, so the clouds were going across.
This was the view from some of the steps. There were quite a few steps down, but it is nice down there. One of the advantages of getting there early is that no other people were around.
I was a bit naughty and climbed a fence to take some photos of the bay next to the blowhole. It looked like people were allowed up there at some stage. It isn’t something I would recommend.
The landscape in the area is very barren looking. I love the rolling hills with no trees, and the large crevices in the land.
It is a very lovely world down there, but very rough. I mean the weather is. The wind whips around and it can be very cold, like bone penetrating cold. I still like going down there to take photos.
I was down there about month ago for Social Snappers and the weather was very different. Very moody, but you will have to wait for those, maybe tomorrow. I hope your weekend starts out well and you get lots done. I have a fairly easy weekend planned which is nice. Here is a gallery of more images for you.
