Hello, I created this blog because Melbourne is my city and I want people to see what a beautiful place it is. So come with me on a journey of discovery as we traverse the dining precincts, the culture, the laneways and hidden gems that make Melbourne marvellous.

Skywatch Friday

Above: Sun on Water
Taken just after 5.00pm as the sun was slowly sinking.

Today's quote: A person should go out on the water on a fine day to a small distance from a beautiful coast, if he would see Nature really smile. Never does she look so delightful, as when the sun is brightly reflected by the water, ~Augustus William Hare and Julius Charles Hare, Guesses at Truth, by Two Brothers, 1827

The surface of the water looks as though it is being washed in molten silver!

SKY DITTY

A little birdie told me,
Although I don’t know why,
That if I were to look up,
Way up into the sky,
I’d see some wondrous planets,
The moon and sun and stars –
There before my very eyes
Blazed Jupiter and Mars!

Great photo. Although the water appears still, at full size you can see there could be strong currents happening.

The sea looks like metal in this--liquid metal. Really nice!
