“Photography:  Painting and Drawing with Light”






We arrived here at the picturesque William Hovell Lake during the mid-afternoon, on a weekday.  There was no-one to be seen on this hot summer’s day!  The Lake itself, is located at the edge of the Alpine National Forest.  It is a rock and earth-fill embankment dam with a ‘flip bucket chute spillway’ across the King River, which flows in and out of the dam itself.  It supplies water for irrigated crops, vineyards and grazing properties along the King River.  Fortunate for us, we had come at a time of the year where the dam was relatively full and looking its wonderest best.  A truly beautiful location that well showcases the lake nettled in amongst mountain bushland which forms part of the Great Dividing Range. It is easy here to feel small and insignificant while gazing at these majestic surroundings. It’s a positive feeling though where ones troubles just disappear momentarily, uplifting our spirits as we marvel at the wonders of mankind and mother nature’s endeavours.






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 Lens. For all these photographs I used the camera mounted on a tripod with a remote timer.  I also used my Apple iPhone 8 Plus mobile phone for quick spontaneous photographs and gain GPS location readings.





On my return home, I downloaded all the photographs into Adobe Lightroom Classic CC.  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 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 to improve one’s sense of wellbeing and at the same time – be creative!

Happy photography all!
