Rode the F650GS to Wilsons Prom today, mainly hoping to make some photos in the category of "Seascapes", which is next month's competition at the Coal Country Camera Club. I joined the club a month ago after attending as a visitor in May and found a group of really active photographers and a very high standard of competition. The CCCC website and images from previous competitions can be found here.
The weather was a bit rough, and it didn't look like getting much above 10ºC but I figured the sea would look a bit more interesting with a bit of weather. By the time I arrived at Tidal River I was cold and hungry and decided to postpone the photography until my more urgent needs were met. On the way down I passed a sign to Squeaky Beach and a brief glimpse of the shore line suggested some interesting options for photography so after lunch I called in there an parked the bike in the car park. After a 300m trek through sand, never an easy task in winter motorcycle gear I was pleasantly surprised and snapped a bunch of photos. I think I will enter the following two images. Click or double click on them for a proper look.
As I was leaving the temperature had 'climbed' to 10.5 ºC and so I decided to ride home the long way through Foster, Alberton and Yarram. Altogether a great day out.
Total Distance 325 km.
Some months ago my friends Marcus and Danielle moved to Denmark and have finally got to the point of buying a couple of BMW's making them the only 4 x BMW family I know (2 in Australia).
To follow their adventures in Europe I included a link on this web site under the frequently visited sites or you can go straight there by clicking here.
