2,000 IMAGES! SHOULD I KEEP GOING?
Moggs Creek, Victoria, Australia

Today marks two thousand days of posting photos on Google+ and Facebook. My 2,000 daily images have not only showcased the Great Ocean Road, Bellarine Peninsular and the Geelong Region, but they have also included images from other areas of Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, Tasmania, South Australia, Western Australia, New Zealand, England and Scotland. I have been very fortunate to have more than 35,000 combined followers on Google+, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Please accept my sincere appreciation for sticking with me. Thank you also to my family and friends who have had to endure my 'obsession', and the constant need to be up early, or stop the car for that all important shot. I am still considering the future, and whether or not to keep going, so please leave a message below and let me know if I should. (2000)

BARK SHEDDING
Lake Elizabeth, Victoria, Australia

'Most trees shed bark as new layers develop under older, dead bark, but in eucalyptus trees the process is punctuated by a colourful and dramatic display on the trunk of the tree. The shedding bark on a eucalyptus tree is one of its most charming features. As the bark dries and peels, it often forms colourful patches and interesting patterns on the trunk of the tree. As the tree sheds its bark, it also sheds any mosses, lichens, fungi and parasites that may live on the bark.' [gardeningknowhow.com] (1999)

ATMOSPHERIC OPTICS
Port Albert, Victoria, Australia

'Atmospheric optics deals with how the unique optical properties of the Earth's atmosphere cause a wide range of spectacular optical phenomena. The blue colour of the sky is a direct result of Rayleigh scattering which redirects higher frequency (blue) sunlight back into the field of view of the observer. Because blue light is scattered more easily than red light, the sun takes on a reddish hue when it is observed through a thick atmosphere, as during a sunrise or sunset. Additional particulate matter in the sky can scatter different colours at different angles creating colourful glowing skies at dusk and dawn.' [Wikipedia] (1998)

THE ORTON EFFECT
The Gulch, Victoria, Australia

'Orton imagery, also called an Orton slide sandwich or the Orton Effect, is a photography technique which blends two completely different photos of the same scene, resulting in a distinctive mix of high and low detail areas within the same photo. It was originated by photographer Michael Orton in the mid 1980s. One image is sharply focused and the others are very out of focus. Orton has also experimented with similar techniques, substituting one of the images in the composition for one of a different subject, such as a texture layer, or combining a multi-colored image and a monotone one.'

WATERFALLS
Hopetoun Falls, Victoria, Australia

'Waterfalls are commonly formed in the upper course of a river. At these times the channel is often narrow and deep. When the river courses over resistant bedrock, erosion happens slowly, while downstream the erosion occurs more rapidly. As the watercourse increases its velocity at the edge of the waterfall, it plucks material from the riverbed. Whirlpools created in the turbulence as well as sand and stones carried by the watercourse increase the erosion capacity. This causes the waterfall to carve deeper into the bed and to recede upstream. Often over time, the waterfall will recede back to form a canyon or gorge downstream as it recedes upstream, and it will carve deeper into the ridge above it.' [Wikipedia] (1995)

WELL RENOWNED
Turon River, New South Wales, Australia

'The Turon River is well renowned because it was the site of one of Australia's first alluvial gold rushes. During the gold rush Chinese migrant workers built a water race to bring water to mining operations along sections of the Turon River. Many parts of the race can still be seen today, such as at Turon Gates. The Turon River was the site of violence between miners and licensing authorities during the gold rush.' [Wikipedia] (1994)

WATCHING THE SUNSET
Broken Hill, New South Wales, Australia

The wonderful rock sculptures outside of Broken Hill were a fantastic find, on a recent trip to this part of the outback. Unfortunately, several hundred other people made the same discovery, and on the same evening as me. It was almost impossible to capture an image without dozens of people in the shot. That said, I thought this one with an older gentleman watching the sunset captured the essence of the sculpture park, which is after all, is there for people to experience. (1993)

CLASSIFIED TOWN
Carcoar, New South Wales, Australia

'Carcoar was once one of the most important government centres in Western New South Wales. The town has been classified by the National Trust due to the number of intact 19th-century buildings. Carcoar is a Gundungura word meaning either frog or kookaburra.' [Wikipedia] (1992)
