Photographer's Note

Autumn it was, when the stiff southerly winds began to blow coldly up the bay towards Melbourne. I went down to Green Point, not far from my home to take a few shots of the wind-stirred water and the setting sun. In this one I managed to capture some ships heading out of Port Phillip Bay and into a squally shower of rain. The view is, of course, across to the west, and the puny 'mountains' you can see on the horizon are the You Yangs, about two thirds of the way from Melbourne to Geelong and probably 30km from where I stood to take the photo.

That Autumn day seems a long way away now, and early Spring seems to have slipped straight into Summer. The winds blew from the dry, dusty north today and the temperature in Melbourne of 36.2 was the hottest October temperature for 100 years.
