Johanna Sky - Skywatch Friday.

Keen followers will know that I spent some at a rather splendid location to the west of Melbourne last week.


Johanna is about 3 ½ hours from Melbourne and ½ an hour from Apollo Bay if you happen to know the area (I suppose they are still those times away even if you don’t know the area – but that’s a pedants distraction!)


I liked the abstract shapes and colours of these water tanks on the property – although I have no idea what the orange ball is!

I liked the way that their solid form contrasted with the sky.

As I was taking the picture 3 Corellas – small white parrots - shot past and I was able to include them in one of the shots.

You can find more pictures of the sky at SkyWatch Friday.

You can see the most recent post to my other blog by clicking on the Paying Ready Attention image on the RHS of the page.


Enjoy the skies!

Oh, such beautiful vivid colours. Apollo Bay, a wonderful area, Otways, Great Ocean Road...did you manage to get down there?

Haha! Thought for a moment you were going to take us back to the Grampians!! I'm sure this type of tank was built specifically for its excellent photographic qualities!!

Jackie said...

Perhaps the orange ball is some kind of water level indicator in the tanks.
Now you are moving into Spring and warmer weather you will be seeing many more blue skies than us, we have moody grey again today.

"little boxes on a hillside, little boxes made of concrete...."
(nah, that doesnt' work)

reminds me of the song and a giants lego field

my guess on the orange ball, a kid down the road is having a birthday party and one of the balloons blew away

Hi Stewart,

Yep, I've been on Great Ocean Road a couple of times. One of my fave drives in Oz. I lived there for a few years (Victor Harbor) and travelled around a lot.
