Hello all!

Well this is my 1000th post here... and I'm enjoying being back in the forums.

Here are 2 photos from a few months ago, both taken the same day, at the beginning and end of a voyage across Bass Strait (the water separating the island of Tasmania from Victoria, on mainland Australia).

The photo below is early in the morning, leaving Tasmania (at Devonport).

And this second photo is at the end of the voyage (about 8 hours later), soon to arrive in Melbourne at Port Phillip Bay.

Hope you enjoy both the photos...

Comments and feedback gladly appreciated!

Paul

1000 posts entitles you to 2 free jumbo shrimp cooked on the barbie. Just send the bill care of Steve DigitCams.

Both are quite beautiful.

The second is amazing! The sea is an incredible place. The most beautiful things happen where there's hardly anybody to see them. Image what glorious sights occur when no one's around.

Fortunately there are cameras and photographers of all kinds ready to record a fraction of it

Ha ha ha!!! :lol: You made me laugh, Bynx! Good to see you understand and incorporate the Aussie sense of humour there too! :G

I'll invite you to join in the Barbie, mate, if you're in our area "down under"!

Thanks for your all too kind words, Bahadir! It's good to be part of a friendly online community! We can all learn a lot from each other, and not just in photography...!

Well yes, it would be good to contribute 1000 more posts within the next 365 days. Let's see how well I go on average!!

I'm glad you appreciate both photos... indeed interesting to note the difference in light and colours from the same stretch of water after just an 8 hour voyage across it!

Bahair, your insightful and genuine posts are certainly appreciated by many, including me!

Paul

Hi Hercules,

Thanks for your kind congrats! And thanks for commenting on them, glad you like them.

Sorry to hear that yor forgot to take your camera to the Spartathlon. Actually exactly 1 year ago I was in your country, Greece, not too far from Sparta actually... on honeymoon (wow time flies!) We didn't know about the Spartathlon (then) though... but we drove past Sparta it 6 times! Well, we miss out on seeing some photos from you of hot runners taking part of the 250km run!!!

By the way... Is it still warm in Greece? Or has some autumn rain and coolness relieved things (yet?) I know it was a hot summer with bush fires there, quite similar to some problems we have regularly here in Australia!!

Paul
