Artist's Description

Camera: Canon EOS 400D, Lens: @ 14mm, ISO: 100, Aperture: f4, Shutter: 1/250

Taken from the road beside the tidal sand flats, at Avalon Beach just outside Geelong in Victoria, Australia. The peaks in the distance are The You Yangs, a series of granite ridges that rise to 364m (Flinders Peak) above the Werribee Plain approximately 55km south west of Melbourne and 22km north east of Geelong. Much of the southern parts of the ranges are protected by the You Yangs Regional Park. The name “You Yang” comes from the Aboriginal words Wurdi Youang or Ude Youang meaning “big mountain in the middle of a plain”. Explorer Matthew Flinders was the first European to visit the You Yangs. On May 1, 1802, he and three of his men climbed to the highest point. He named it “Station Peak” but the name was changed in 1912 to “Flinders Peak” in his honour.
