INTRODUCTION

This photography adventure took place on my hubby’s 66th Birthday.  Our daughter, son-in-law and grand-daughter took us out for a fishing day for his birthday along the Goulburn River, Seymour, Victoria – Australia.  It was a beautiful day, hubby caught a fish and I managed to take some photographs of the river, birds such as Masked Lapwing also known as Spur-winged Plover, Crimson Rosellas, Sulphur Crested Cockatoo, a pair of Sacred Kingfishers and a native honey beehive that was housed in a gumtree trunk knot!  Daughter Kelly enjoyed some time with her father while her hubby looked after their baby daughter.  We enjoyed our time together creating importance family memories…

 

 

 

PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT USED

During this 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 the landscape photographs – hand-held.  For the bird photography I used the same camera but with my new (bird) lens, a Sigma150-600mm F5-6.3 DGOS HSM with a Sigma Mount Converter MC-11 mounted on a Wimberley WH-200 Gimbal Tripod Head II with quick release base. I also used my Apple iPhone 8 Plus mobile phone for quick spontaneous photographs and gain GPS location readings.

 

 

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 and the creatures it inhabits – 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!
