This sunrise was taken from the Sunbury/Melbourne Road at the Lancefield turn off.
And this is the view that I drive into every morning.
Naturally I have to wait for the right time of year to get sunrises like this one.
I took this in Nov 2009 and retrieved it out of the “shoebox”…

taken with a panasonic Lumix FZ30.


This clip was from “Thomas Crown” (1968) with Steve McQueen, and is sung by Noel Harrison..
( son of Rex Harrison ).
This has been one of my favourite songs from the time I went to see the movie when it first came out, and I thought it fitted the moment.



country, red, clouds, rural, sky, sunrise, australia, victoria, silhouette, windmill

I live at Riddells Creek in the Macedon Ranges of Victoria, and have been involved in Horticulture all my life.
I play Blues Harmonica and Bodhran’ in my spare time, as well as getting involved with Genealogy and Medieval History,
I have also been acting for 40 years and was lucky to be cast as a judge in the movie “Stricly Ballroon”…
But my camera is my passion.

    Divine captures Larry all in this gorgeous series so enjoyable- amazing colors and wonderful feel to them! There’s that music….love it!

  • I have every film that Steve McQueen made.
    And this music always strikes me in the heart.
    The remake has got nothing on the original….
