St. Kilda Sunset – Melbourne – Victoria

Having left Phillip Island Emily and I decided to head to the Melbourne area for a couple of days. Emily wanted to visit the Victoria Market, which was vast and one of the best markets I have seen, well worth a visit. Obviously my desire to revisit at a more sedate pace was fuelled by my wanting to get some photos of Melbourne itself.

We decided to stop overnight just outside of Melbourne in St. Kilda where we knew backpackers tended to congregate and where we first met Dori our campervan.

The sunset that evening was second to none and as the sun slipped down below the horizon I stepped out of our camper and shot the views.

Emily and I then walked along St. Kilda Pier to the end where penguins sometimes nestin the wharf’s walls. Due to excessive amounts of tourists crowding these little creatures (including ourselves!) flash photography was strictly prohibited but I found the best shot was back across from where we had come.

Looking out through the boats in the harbour you could see the lights turning on asMelbourne’s nightlife took off and it made for a glorious cityscape.

All the photos from the evening are below and the pictures are linked to larger versions which you can view by clicking on them.
