At sunrise on a cold, foggy morning this rowboat lays ashore, tied up to the jetty on the banks of Thompsons Creek at The Minya Winery near Torquay on The Great Ocean Road.

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”.
