a pile of stones

This pile of stones at the base  of the cliffs just west of Petrel Cove had been collected by children during the school holidays:

 There is a rough path or track along a cutting that runs down from the  top of the cliffs to the rocky foreshore  below and the stones are neatly stacked against  some  granite rocks. 

near Basham's Beach

This picture was made whilst I was on an afternoon poodle walk around the granite outcrop between  Basham's Beach and  Port Elliot on the southern Fleurieu Peninsula with Ari and Maleko. I'd been to see the director of the South Coast Regional Art Gallery at Goolwa about the Mallee Routes project and I  decided to walk around the granite outcrop.  

 I'm toying with using this some of the images on this blog as the basis for small artist's book. A little side project. A modest project. 

winter seas

The 2016 winter has been very stormy and wet with a few sunny , calm days in-between. Consequently, we have seen  wild, surging seas along the granite coast west of the  Victor Harbor township and Rosetta Head.  The   picture below was made whilst on an early  morning poodle walk at Dep's Beach.

All the sand on Dep's  Beach and at Petrel Cove has been washed away during the storms.
