  • Had been doing laps of the lake since about 4 AM, when I pulled over to get some sunrise pics. It was absolutely FREEZING, with an apparent temp of minus 2C - although it felt a LOT colder where I was!  I'm posting this pic merely to show the desolate, wintry scene that confronted me. I was ready to just give it a miss and head home to the warmth. I'm glad I didn't! ????
  • VIDEO - Timelapse of a brief shower sweeping across Lake Wendouree at dawn.  with a cameo by some fool totally ignoring the message of the soundtrack! ;-)
