“Photography:  Painting and Drawing with Light”







The aim of this travel and photography adventure was to revisit the region of Daylesford.  It was a beautiful winter’s day and the drive through Victoria’s countryside invigorating!  My husband and I – only had a day to see a few locations of note which were the township of Daylesford itself where we stopped for lunch, then to Mount Franklin, Lake Jubilee and lastly to Trentham Falls.  This was a big-enough day for us, and I managed to capture some noteworthy photographs which made me happy.  But most importantly, we had a lovely day together driving and walking through natural Australian bush-land. During our travels we discovered breathtaking expansive views looking out and across farmlands from Mount Franklin, a forest of tall slender Birch trees at the top of Mount Franklin, water birds on Lake Jubilee, actual water running over and down Trentham Falls – all achieved while we embraced the glorious weather that Victoria had to offer!







During this landscape photography  exercise – I used a 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.  Each photography adventure helps me learn more and more about my camera and lense; and also hopefully helps me becoming a better photographer. I also used my Samsung Galaxy S6 mobile phone for quick spontaneous photographs and gain GPS location readings.







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 travel and photography adventure!

Being out and about experiencing the natural wonders of the world really does rejuvenate the body and soul.  Photography is just another way I can improve my sense of wellbeing and at the same time – be creative!  It definitely works for me and once more we finished up our day in high spirits…

Happy photography all!
