INTRODUCTION

A beautiful winter’s photography adventure day walking around the Kinglake National Park at Masons Falls, Kinglake West, Victoria – Australia!  I had the wonderful opportunity to also enjoy the company of my daughter, granddaughter and husband.  During our time here, we did the walk to the falls where from a large viewing platform, we were able to take a number of photographs.  It was difficult to obtain varying shots with trees obscuring the overall view of the falls but it was a very beautiful outlook.  Along the walk we found tall Black Wattle trees showing off their beautiful pom-pom like flowers.  My daughter and I also managed to photograph Superb Fairy-Wren that were easily found hopping amongst the ground vegetation within the picnic area but not so easy to photograph as they move very quickly.

 

 

 

 

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 these photographs I used the camera both hand-held and on the tripod with a remote control. I also used my Apple iPhone 8 Plus mobile phone for quick spontaneous photographs and gain GPS location readings.

 

 

The above photograph on the right features my daughter holding her Sony A7II camera with a lens – Sigma 150-600 contemporary suitable for capturing photographs of birds.  Here we found small Splendid Fairy-Wrens hopping around looking for morsels of food visiting tourists had left behind after their visit to the Masons Falls.  Below here is a lovely photograph of a female Superb Fairy-Wren which she managed to achieve. It has to be noted I wasn’t able to achieve the same result and my dear daughter has allowed me to show her photograph.  These little creatures were just too fast for me!

 

 

 

 

 

THE PHOTOGRAPHS

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!

 

 

 

 

CONCLUSION

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 – © Karen Robinson – September 2018

    • Hi Claudia…It was a lovely area and my daughter’s baby was 5 months old on this photography adventure. She is getting out and about a little more now which is good and she loves taking photographs of birds. Has lots of patients which I find hard to achieve with birds – they move!…warm regards Karen
