“Photography:  Painting and Drawing with Light”






On our way to photograph Paradise Falls located within the region of Cheshunt, Victoria – Australia, we drove along a gravel road which featured a stunning view of Mt Bulla, far in the distant skyline.  Upon stopping to take a photograph, a beautiful black cow with a hide that glistened in the bright sunlight, standing alone, became very curious as to why we were there!  We took time here to enjoy the expansive views of the grazing field and mountain ranges while at the same time, stretched our old legs!  We then continued on with our drive to find Paradise Falls.  After parking the car, we then engaged in a lengthy walk along a man-made dirt path that showcased some magnificent landscape views.  Upon reaching our destination we discovered a fall with no water running over-and-down the rocks, which was disappointing.  Being the peak of summer in Victoria, we both noted that we would need to revisit during winter-time, where winter rains would ensure we had the opportunity to sight a curtain waterfall.  It was still a very beautiful location, which featured stunning red rock formations and native wildlife that could be seen, and heard, close by and afar, due to the isolation of the region.  We enjoyed not only the opportunity take photographs, but also enjoyed the sights and sounds that the Australian bush can 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 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!
