Skywatch Friday - Ships That Pass In The Night


Time to say goodbye
Down on the Mornington Peninsula, the ferry runs between Sorrento and Queenscliff across Port Phillip Bay connecting it (Sorrento) with the Bellarine (Peninsula). The trip takes around 40 minutes and is much faster than driving back to Melbourne, then heading west down the Princes Highway.

This photo was taken not long before sunset from the Portsea pier. In the first photo, the boat on the left is heading back to Sorrento and the one on the right is on its way to Queenscliff. As you can see in the second photo, they have passed each other. After taking these shots, I went back to my car and drove back to Sorrento to wait for the ferry to pull in where I took some more photos.

A tinge of melancholy, thinking of ships passing in the night...all the movies where the lovers miss each other by seconds...sigh. But what beautiful images you've captured.

Very nice shots. the sky is lovely.

As for empty houses it is rather sad. A carpenter friend of mine says as soon as a house is empty it starts dying---I think that may be true. MB
