"The Minya Entrance" by Phil Thomson IPA

The entry to the Minya winery, near Torquay on the Great Ocean Road, Australia. The name Minya is Aboriginal for ‘The Place of Many Birds’. The winery, situated on the banks of Thompsons Creek is home to a wide variety of native birds and waterfowl. It has a fine range of wines available and plays host to a number of concerts, called “Minya by Moonlight” during the Summer and Autumn months, in its own ampitheatre, overlooking the waters of the creek.

I often stand in awe and admire the beauty of God’s Creation. The colours, textures, tones and shapes,especially the way the light falls and reflects, thus revealing things often overlooked, particularly during the grandeur of a sunrise or sunset, or the spectacle of a rainbow.
I really just want to try and capture and share some of what I see as “The Creator’s Handiwork”.

    The rich sepia based toning very much suits the composition adding to the atmosphere, excellent quality and so different from the Torquay in the UK where I live,
