AUTUMN ISN’T ALWAYS FINE

The week following the previous post’s images (from my archives) wasn’t fine at all.

The 17th May 2013 down at St Kilda beach, one of Melbourne’s closest bayside beaches, was freezing cold and a very brisk wind indeed.

A Pacific Gull basks in a ray of sunlight to warm up.

Halfway along St Kilda’s long pier, the waves crashing on the rocky outcrop below look as though they’d be very cold indeed.

At the end of St Kilda pier, I sit in the windless side of the iconic Kiosk looking over the boat marina to the city in the distance.

Looks like rain over the city.

WHISKERED TERN (Chlidonias hybridus)

The city skyline is bathed in sunlight after the rain clouds blew away.

The St Kilda Pavilion is an historic kiosk located at the end of St Kilda Pier built in 1904, originally known as Parer’s Pavilion and later renamed Kirby’s Kiosk but locally known as St Kilda Kiosk. Burnt down in 2003 and later rebuilt to its present form. Excellent Fish’n’Chips

Must have been high tide this day, as the ramp leading down to the sand was almost covered in water.

  1. Autumn brings a great relief from the summer heat, and I’m sure you welcome it. From this side of Autumn though I’m glad to see it go.
