17 June - Wilsons Prom

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.


  1. Great photos, but the second is my favorite. Very nice. Good luck on the entry.

  2. Mighty fine photos, Theo. I love the balance of elements in the top one--boulders, brush, sand, sea, and sky... Lovely.
