INTRODUCTION

The aim of this photography adventure was to capture landscape scenes around the Whittlesea and Mount Disappointment region, Victoria – Australia; a location not far from where we live.  My first visit to the Whittlesea region was with my daughter who loves to capture photos of small birds in the bush.  This can be most frustrating because they are so well hidden and take flight as soon as they sight a human stepping towards them.  My second visit on another day to the region was with my husband where we travelled along dusty, rocky roads within the Mount Disappointment State Forest.  Both occasions offered wonderful opportunities to take photographs of our local region but also gave me the opportunity to spend time with my husband and daughter – a win-win for me!

ABOUT WHITTLESEA AND MOUNT DISAPPOINTMENT REGION

 

“Before European settlement, the Aboriginal people of the Wurundjeri Wilam clan lived on the land that now forms the City of Whittlesea and the northern suburbs of Melbourne.  Many of the names in the City of Whittlesea were inspired by the Wurundjeri culture and traditions.  Place names that remain today include, Bundoora, Yan Yean, Mernda, Merri, Wallan and Wollert.  George Sherwin is recorded as the first European settler taking up land in 1837 (Whittlesea Historic Society Organisation 2017).”

“Nestled within the Great Dividing Range to the south-east of Broadford, the Mt Disappointment State Forest was a popular bush-walking, mountain-biking and horse-riding area prior to the 2009 Black Saturday bushfires, when the region was extensively burnt.  By mid-2012 an extensive government-sponsored bushfire-recovery program had been implemented, including the rebuilding of visitor facilities and the reopening of campsites.  The regeneration of the forest is also well underway, aided by some wet winters following the bushfires (Explore Australia 2010)”.

PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT USED

During this landscape photography exercise I used my EOS 1100D Canon DSLR camera on a tripod with a remote timer for the big shots.  I also used my Samsung Galaxy S6 mobile phone for quick spontaneous photographs and used it to gain GPS location readings.

THE PHOTOGRAPHS

On my return home, I downloaded all the photographs into Adobe Lightroom 6.  I developed a small selection of photographs During the process of developing them I was able to see what I needed to address during my next photographic adventure.   Please find both above and below the best of what I took during these two days.

INTRODUCTION

Once more my hubby and I packed up the photography equipment and headed out for the day! The aim of this photography adventure was to capture seascape scenes along the shoreline of Williamstown, Victoria – Australia.  The first visit was after sunrise, early to mid-morning and mostly around the Williamstown Pier where numerous boats and yachts were anchored within the safe harbour of Port Phillip Bay.  From this advantage point we could see Melbourne’s cityscape in the far background.  My second visit on another day was at a time where I could capture the ‘before and during’ sunrise views.  This time we located ourselves a little further alone from the Williamstown Pier; a location that gave us a clear view across the harbour and allowing us to see some of Melbourne’s cityscape with the Dandenong Ranges deep in the background.

ABOUT WILLIAMSTOWN – Today!

 

Williamstown is the oldest continuous settlement on the shores of Port Phillip and is an area rich in maritime history (Parks Victoria 2016).

 

 

 

PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT USED

During this seascape photography exercise and during my first visit to Williamstown, I used my EOS 1100D Canon DSLR camera on a tripod with a remote timer for the big shots.  The second visit – I used my new compact system camera a Sony A7 Mark II – Full Frame with a new lense Sony A FE24-240mm F3.5-6.3 OSS hand-held. It was the first time I had used this new camera and lense, but once I got the hang of it – it was such a pleasure to use.  I also used my Samsung Galaxy S6 mobile phone for quick spontaneous photographs and gain GPS location readings.

THE PHOTOGRAPHS

On my return home, I downloaded all the photographs into Adobe Lightroom 6.  I developed a small selection of photographs During the process of developing them I was able to see what I needed to address during my next photographic adventure.  But considering it was my first time out using my new Sony Camera – I was pleasantly surprised with the results.  The Sony Camera was easy to use and made my old camera feel like a dinosaur in comparison.  Most of the photos required little adjustment out of the camera which was pleasing. But I did decide to turn some into black and white photographs that I had taken on my old camera in order to gain the best raw photographic details – using Lightroom 6.  Please find both above and below the best of what I took during these two days.

CONCLUSION

Being on location before sunrise and by the sea – was such a beautiful experience.  Watching the sun creep up and over the horizon, releasing its glorious colourful display of golden yellows and mellow oranges was visually breathtaking.  And the fresh salt sea air brushing across our faces made us feel good to be alive!  Thus using photography to improve my sense of wellbeing definitely works for me; we left in high spirits!

Happy photography all!

Jessie our family dog at the age of 16 years old reached the end of his life.  This is a lovely photograph of Jessie some years ago, during a time when he was a little younger.  We loved him dearly and he will be greatly missed by us.  He was such a kind-hearted dog with a beautiful soul, he gave us so much joy and companionship during the good and bad times in our lives.  R.I.P. dear Jessie – March 2017.  Photographed by Karen Robinson – NB:  All images are protected by copyright laws

 

 

INTRODUCTION

In memory of our dear family dog Jessie, I would like to re blog these prose poems I had written about him during 2016 – R.I.P. my dear loving friend…

— Our Dog Jessie —

­

His golden hair glimmers in the warm, afternoon winter-sun,

he is waiting, waiting, waiting for his very special one.


There seems to be no end to his vigilant gaze

as he watches for his master to grace the stony path maze.


For Jessie is truly a well-loved family member of ours,

he has given us so much love in both good and bad hours.


If only his master knew how adoringly his dog waits,

for the return of his master’s presence, - our dog’s best of mates.

— Home —


­
It is quiet and peaceful
at this very moment.
There are no ‘world worries’ in my space.
 

I hear birds awakening
 to the beginning
 of a new and promising day.


Inside here in my home
it is safe and warm,
and outside, surrounding my home,
is a garden paradise
grown and crafted
by the loving hands of a man
I cherish.


Here, I know, is a place
 for me
to run and hide -
to shelter from the outside world’s daily challenges;


a place where I can be myself –
unafraid, comforted.


The family dog sits beside me,
endearingly,
as always.


Together we wait for the morning-sun
to show its friendly face


and when my husband arises,
from his night’s sleep,
it is then we will take coffee
 and talk
in the security of each other’s company.
 

It is quiet and peaceful here –
this blessed place
I call home.

INTRODUCTION

The aim of this photography adventure was to capture amazing river and bush scenes within the Lerderderg State Forest Park.  It is a 14,250-hectare park located between Bacchus Marsh and Blackwood, an hour’s drive from Melbourne – Australia.  The Lerderderg river itself “has cut a 300 metre deep gorge through sandstone and slate, almost bisecting the park” (Parks Victoria 2016). To our surprise, the Lerderderg stony river bed was mostly dry with some occasional small water holes and lagoons to be found – as we ventured by foot along the expansive stony river bed.  My husband explained to me that some 50 years ago and when he was a young man, he would trek this area; and back then – there was no shortage of water flowing through this river’s watercourse way.  It was a shock to view this once mighty river so dry!  We will probably need to come back over winter and at the beginning of spring to see what difference the winter rains have made on this region of Australian bush.   The native wildlife surrounding the river greatly depend upon its water resources for daily sustenance, and this lack of water must mean that animal and bird wildlife would be suffering.  It is a beautiful region to visit; its isolation added to our overall experience, it was a magical day…

 

 

 

 

 

ABOUT LERDERDERG STATE FOREST

Lerderderg State Park encompasses scenic and geological gorge formations surrounding the Lerderderg River as well as the volcanic cone of Mount Blackwood.  The adjacent and separate block called the Pyrete Range forms part of the park.  The park is known for its remote setting and the 300 deep Lerderderg River gorge is a dominant feature.  Private land abuts the park to the south and the Wombat State forest abuts to the north and west (VEAC.Vic.Gov – 2017).

A range of vegetation types, including a riparian Blue Gum and Manna Gum community of State significance and 23 significant plant species present in Lerderderg State Park, together with nine significant animal species.  The vegetation changes dramatically from north to south in accordance with the rainfall gradient.  Dry Stringy-bark-box forests are found near the gorge mouth, and Box-Iron-bark woodlands along the high ridges of the south.  There is a change to taller, damper Messmate-Peppermint-Gum Forests along the northern boundary of the park.  The river margins support Blue Gum and Manna Gum, while grevilleas, wattles and hakeas are found in steep and rocky sections.  Late winter and spring are best times to see the spectacular display of wildflowers.  The Lerderderg River is a proclaimed Heritage River and there are 3 reference areas in the park (VEAC.Vic.Gov – 2017).

The Wurundjeri and the Wathaurung are Aboriginal tribes known to have lived in the area.  European occupation of the area commenced during the 1830s when squatters took up large pastoral runs around Bacchus Marsh.  Gold was first discovered at what is now the township of Blackwood, in 1851.  The area was rich in alluvial gold and large nuggets were found chiefly in the bed of the Lerderderg River and its tributaries in what is now the Wombat State Forest and Lerderderg State Park (VEAC.Vic.Gov – 2017).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT USED

During this landscape photography exercise – I used my EOS 1100D Canon DSLR camera on a tripod with a remote timer for the big shots. I also used my Samsung Galaxy S6 mobile phone for quick spontaneous photographs and to also gain GPS location readings.

THE PHOTOGRAPHS

On my return home, I downloaded all the photographs into Adobe Lightroom 6.  I developed a small selection of photographs.  It was once more a new experience, especially developing the landscape photographs where some of the skyline was over exposed.  A number of the photographs I decided to crop the sky out of the photograph itself. I also decided to turn some into black and white photographs in order to gain the best raw photographic details – using Lightroom 6. Overall though I was happy with my efforts and feel that the essence of the natural Australia bush was captured. Please find both above and below the best of what I took on the day.

CONCLUSION

Another magical day taking landscape photographs.  I would encourage anyone to take up photography as a way of tapping into one’s creativeness; a way to reconnect with nature. Photography as an art form used as therapy – helps to improve one’s sense of well-being and gets a ‘thumbs up’ from me…

Happy photography all!
