On our trip to Victoria, Australia we revisited our previous route along the Great Ocean Road. Last time we didn’t have a chance to head down Cape Otway and see the lighthouse, so we made a point to add it to the itinerary. We visited on a blustery October day, with the wind biting and cold. I can only imagine what it would have been like to be on the water during a storm at night, when through the blackness shines a light in the distance, guiding you from the shoals towards a safe port.
The first time we went to Tower Hill in Victoria, Australia, I was just starting to get into photography. We went in the middle of the day, and the critters were few and far between. Since then, my technique has improved, and this time we went at dusk, when they were really active. There was a flock (herd?) of emu wandering around near the parking lot, so I had time to practice shooting – trying to get the focus on the eye. For some reason, they just wouldn’t hold still long enough, but this one gave me a couple of chances.
We recently visited the Tower Hill nature reserve in Victoria, Australia. It’s our second time, and continues to be an amazing place to see wildlife. This koala was in a tree right near the parking lot just snoozing away, ignoring the crazy American with his camera.
It got me thinking though, there’s a moral here for cybersecurity too – no matter how safe and comfortable we think we are, there’s always something sharp ready to poke us in our complacent rears.
