Mushy

Most people on the internet take photos of their dinner after it's cooked...

Shot

I can never resist taking a photo of the shot tower when I'm at Melbourne Central

Royal

Luke and I went to the Finders Keepers Market at the Royal Exhibition Building today, partly to take photos of the spectacular interior. The market only took up one end of the building. The rest was screened off, but we squeezed through the gaps and had the rare opportunity to take photos of the building without any people around.

More flowers

I've been to the Botanic Gardens every day for the past three...or is it four?...days now. 


Eucalyptus flower (click to enlarge)


Don't know what this is, but it's purdy


Camellia


Pincushion flower in the herb garden


This was a Pincushion flower


Another phase of the Pincushion flower lifecycle


Don't know what this is, but it looks good


A rose of some kind (it was in the rose garden)

Saturday sojourn

Distant rain as seen from the top of Lake Mountain, 
the closest alpine resort to Melbourne (click to enlarge)


Lake Mountain and surrounds were ravaged by the devastating 
Black Saturday bushfires in February 2009. So many trees lost...
but there is a strange and eerie beauty to it 


More ghost trees on the road between Lake Mountain and Marysville


 Steavenson Falls near Marysville, one of Victoria's
 tallest waterfalls with a drop of 122 metres


Part of the lower cascade. 
Anyone know the highest waterfall in Victoria? 
My google search was inconclusive
