Autumn field trip

One of the best things about my job is that I get to spend time with really interesting people, sometimes in fabulous outdoor locations.

I spent this past weekend in Victoria's south-west with nearly 60 of my post-grad students; the weather was dreamy and we explored all kinds of local landscapes.

 Coastal vegetation - a pleasing juxtaposition of lumpy and spiky forms

We saw lots of race horses out for an early morning swim

 The sea mists roll away....

 The wetlands in the crater of Tower Hill (an ancient volcano) have been replenished by recent rains.

 A jetstream sliced through the sky at dusk, as we were bathed in golden light.

My husband and dogs came along too - Gus loved the beach as always


Windcatching at Yambuk

More turbines! Nice.
