This two boats were amongst the small boats moored in the narrow boating channel close to where the Werribee River flows into Port Phillip Bay.
The name Werribee is an aboriginal name meaning "backbone" or "spine". It is thought that this name was given as the shape of the Werribee River valley and the landscape look like a backbone.
The Werribee River seems to have provided a boundary between the territories of the Woiwurong aborigines to the north east and the Wothowurong to the south west, although other tribal groups visited the area.
Taken late in the afternoon in the company of a bunch of Melbourne TEers (skippy007, macondo, daddo, afltrek)

This is a nice composition of the two boats floating in the somewhat muddy looking water. The river bank makes a fine background of green and brown, fairly well matching the tones of the water. The warm light is very nice.

Hello Steve - You have captured the atmosphere of the windy weather very well here; lots of motion on the water and the impression of the boats rocking back and forth. Good light and the muddy coloured water adds to the feel. Warm regards Rosemary

Gidday dear Steve
Nice to see you posting here and to hear that you met up with the rest of the Melbourmaniacs. Sounds like a fun day was had by all. I like the choppy water and the 2 colourful boats taken on the angle. Excellent Rule of Thirds framing. Nice work, thanks for sharing.
Have a great week
