Photograph 11 - At Oostende, Belgium


35mm photograph, taken May 1998.

My wife and I travelled to Europe in 1998. We visited The Netherlands, Belgium, France, Switzerland, and Germany. We enjoyed our visit to Oostende (for a little more than half a day). It was a short 15 minute train journey to the coast, from the city of Bruges (Brugge), where we were staying at the time. Oostende is a fishing village/town with sea links to England. The wharf areas of Oostende in particular were fascinating. We enjoyed watching and hearing a number of large ships coming and going.

The sea breeze at Oostende was very refreshing.

Photograph 12 - Highly Eroded Forms Near The Sugarloaf


6000 x 4000 pixels, digital photograph.

This view of highly eroded channels and forms of rocks and clays is near The Sugarloaf, in the Hallett Cove Conservation Park. The Hallett Cove Conservation Park is a fascinating and inspiring place to visit and walk around in. This precious conservation park has been kept as a living record of natural coastal landscape which was typical of this region of South Australia. It contains many purple-brown rocks that geologists have dated at being formed at about 600 million years ago.

The 'dumped' large rocks seen here indicate that this area was once part of a glacier.
