Despite the weather being cold with a bitter wind, I really enjoyed walking around the town of Robe and along the beach of Guichen Bay when we visited there last week. In winter the light is quite different, being softer than the usually harsh and glaring light of mid-summer. The cloud patterns and colours add a further dimension to the views.

I was fascinated by the effects of light – it was late afternoon – on the clouds, sand, water, and rocks. The constantly moving water and the patterns it creates means endless subjects for a camera. The beauty of visiting Robe in the South East region of South Australia is that the beach is no more than five minutes easy walk from most places in the town, certainly from the caravan parks and the cottage where we stayed. Another benefit in winter at least, is that the beaches are virtually deserted. I think I passed no more than five people on the beach the entire time I was there.

  1. Trevor, your pictures are absolutely beautiful. I have always been fascinated by stories of Australia. I could listen to your Australian accent all day long. I live in Hot Springs, Arkansas, U. S. A. in the deep South.

    Thanks for your kind words Patricia. I try to post a new article and a new set of photos every day so I invite you to return often.

    In a few weeks time we are planning an extended trip to Sydney to visit our son and daughter in law. Expect plenty of great photos and interesting articles about the countryside we travel through, plus more photos of Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne – as well as everything in between.

    We haven’t had the privilege of travelling to your part of the world – yet. Someday…
