The weather was hot at the beginning of the month. I went up to Mount Macedon to photograph the memorial cross at daybreak of 9 March, because it was 29°C all during the night, I was over it and needed distracting. It was the hottest March night on record. Altitude is supposed to be cooler, right?
The walk from the carpark to the cross is a wide pathway between trees at the very top of the mountain. I had a heart stopping moment when I looked east and actually thought for a moment that it was fire behind those trees, but it was all good. I was obviously just projecting my core body temperature onto my surroundings.
The sunrise was nice enough but the ambience was ruined by the appearance of a dozen MAMILs who swarmed over the cross like wasps on a honey pot to get the best vantage point.
By the end of the month, the weather is a bit bi-polar. Warm enough for shorts, cool enough to need socks. Not so cold as to need shoes.
