Blue, orange and white skies over Port Melbourne (Australia)

A white (maybe a little grey) cloudy day.

In the above photo, the pier is on the right, where the ship is. In the foreground, the poles (on the left) are for tying nets for beach tennis. The next photo is a close-up of the pergola…

It will probably look more inviting if the sky was blue…

All great but love the rays of sun in the first best!

Great perspective, and awesome shots Evelyn:)

I actually like the two grey ones best--they're peaceful and quiet and inviting. Even though things have been dreary around here (last day and a half sunny, though), your grey skies seem so much more pleasant. The beach and water are enviable.

Gaelyn said...

All the colors of your skies are quite lovely.

Diane AZ said...

I'm attracted to the sun rays in the first one and the wood boards in the last. Guess I like diagonal lines today. Nice sky shots! :)

Lovely pictures Evelyn! I was thinking the poles were for measuring water levels, during high tide, haha, but why need so many right?? haha, silly of me.

I love the composition of the the pergola shot, it's stunning. But the sunrise is too, I need to get up earlier!

Titania said...

It is said the weather in Melbourne changes by the blink of an eye, is this true? Anyway your pictures are delightful be it sunset, sunrise, or a rainy day, which I do love anyway.

Evelyn Howard said...

@Titania: It is true. I check the weather forecast esp before I go out, for appropriate clothing, umbrella etc.
