The Grampians – Part 4 – Up the mountain

One of the first walks I did in the Grampians, was to the Lake View lookout.  It was a relatively gentle start to the day, although it was damp with a misty rain for a great deal of the time.  Atmospheric. 🙂

  1. I love rainy days, and will add to that low clouds, fog and drippiness. Your photos are wonderful. And thank you for using the word “spring” at least once. I have such trouble getting my mind around the fact that things are different in your world. I “know” it, just as I know the southern hemisphere has different stars, and the Southern Lights rather than the Northern Lights. But it’s still good to be reminded!

    Funny, isn’t it, how our autumn and your spring can look so much the same for just a short time.

    • Many thanks Linda, for your kind words. Perhaps if you simply think of me walking around upsidedown, as us Downuderers need to do, then it will all make perfect sense of the seasons! 🙂

  2. ” walking around upsidedown” — wonderful thought! Thank you for sharing all your view of these amazing mountains. I really enjoyed these rock formations and the views from the tops of the mountains as well.
