Edwins Bicycle Tour Downunder
Saturday, 3 March 2007
Friday 2 March. Rosebud Rest Day.

After 3 hard days this was totally a rest day with the bike restricted to the Motel Room for the duration.

Weather was warm and sunny all day reaching a pleasant 27C

After finding a Computer Shop to get on the Internet I went across to the Beach. At Rosebud the shops and most houses are on the inland side of the coast road with a wide area of park, trees and dunes on the coast side. The result is that the town is well hidden when on the beach which seems a good arrangement.

During the morning and early afternoon I sunbathed on the sandy beach. The water is very shallow for a long way out so I paddled and took pictures while out at sea.

Later in the afternoon I walked along to the pier. Today I had time to fiddle with my digital camera and found a function for the first time of adding digital filters such as colour casts. Another filter is to posterize the image which produces some interesting effects. See the picture below of the sea and pier. These sorts of effects can readily be added later on a computer but it is useful to try them out in the Camera.
