INTRODUCTION

The aim of this travel and photography adventure was to visit my husband’s brother and his family for a couple of days on their small farm in Bruthen.  During our journey back home to Melbourne, I managed to capture some landscape scenes around the ‘Mitta Mitta River‘, a perennial river located within the alpine district Omeo, Victoria – Australia.  It is a direct tributary of the Murray River and this particular spot very popular with holiday makers looking to do a bit of fishing.  My husband, his brother, my daughter and I stopped to do some sightseeing.  While they fished, I went about taking some photographs of the still river waters that mirrored the cloudy blue skies above and surrounding region.

 

 

 

 

 

 

PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT USED

During this landscape photography  exercise – I used my new compact system camera a Sony A7 Mark II – Full Frame with a Sony A FE24-240mm F3.5-6.3 OSS Lense. For some of the shots I used the camera hand-held, and for others, I used the camera mounted on a tripod with a remote timer.  I am still getting use to understanding the abilities of my new camera and lense, but it was such a pleasure though to use, and good for someone like myself trying to learn to be a better photographer!  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.   Please find both above and below the best of what I took during this visit to Mitta Mitta River, Omeo, Victoria – Australia.

Happy photography all!
