    Nice photo, I recognise the lime green boat, I have taken pics from this spot also

  • thanks Ian – the day was so grey, and the reflections in the water so clear, that this boat was just begging to be included …

    Lovely image. The greys are so lovely over Melbourne anytime.Congratulations on your feature.

  • thankyou very much – non-Melbournians often have a perception that the city is just grey – it was good to get an opportunity (if just a brief one as we had to beat a retreat soon after this photo) to highlight some lovely colours
