"Wye River Gold" by Phil Thomson IPA

Golden rays of the sunrise finally break through the cloud cover and spread over the sea and rocks at the ruins of the century old, Otway timber companies piers, at Wye River on The Great Ocean Road.

My Bubblesite showcases images in their categories.

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”.

    Beautiful work, Phil. I particularly like the way the light reflects off the rocks, and also the wooden cross.
