A beautiful day at Woodlands Historic Park, Victoria – Australia which is located just a short distance from my home. Hubby and I with other members of the Craigieburn Camera Club engaged in a ‘free format photograph shot’ where we wandered around this nature preserve taking photographs that were of interest to the individual photographer. We experienced glimpses of landscapes and wildlife seen by European settlers in the 1840’s (Park Victoria 2018). A 150-year old homestead stands on the property; indigenous canoe trees, native woodland and grassland are all part of the reserve’s offering. A fenced ‘Back Paddock’ is where we spotted mobs of kangaroos and numerous native birds (Park Victoria 2018). It was a very pleasant experience, and we finished up having coffee and scones at the Historic Homestead. Returning home involved just a few minutes drive which was a lovely change for us!
PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT USED
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!
