Mornington Schnapper Point

A winters day at Schnapper Point Mornington, weather cold, seas rough... But die hard fishermen brave the elements to fish from the pier.

Royal Botanic Gardens Cranbourne

A visit to the Royal Botanic Gardens Cranbourne on Monday because it was very foggy and I wanted to see the gardens under the shroud of fog. I have visited the gardens many times normally on a bright sunny day. How different the gardens looked through the blanket fog, almost eerie in places, it was so very quiet apart from the sounds of the birds from time to time. Really enjoyed my visit!!

Frankston View's In Panorama

A beautiful winters day down by the sea at Frankston Pier. Not a breath of wind, the sea so calm, sun just breaking  through, the sky with it's magical colours through the clouds. What a spot to take some photo's with the view in mind to practice stitching some together as a panorama.

Fishermen Tooradin

Fog won't stop them!!
I would have to say that there are still some die hard fishermen around today. It was  early morning, very, very cold, very foggy, the sun not yet up. Yet there they were down at the waters edge, fishing poles in the water, boats already in the water,  motors were already running. I wonder if the fish were biting???
