“Photography:  Painting and Drawing with Light”





On our way back home from Warrnambool to Melbourne – Australia after spending a number of photography adventure days photographing around the region, we stopped to take some photographs at Stingray Bay.  The day was overcast but fortunately, short bursts of sunshine bathed the shoreline with a soft light. I tried my best to capture and develop photographs that highlighted the beauty of this beach shoreline that was strangely deserted considering it was so close to the main road.  A pleasing moment spent at Stingray Bay…





During this photography adventure – 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. Recently I had purchased a Right Angle L Plate Bracket for my camera so that I could turn it to do portraits or landscape photographs more easily which worked a treat.  I also purchased a BH-40 Ballhead for my tripod and once more, it made taking my photographs not just easier but much more enjoyable. 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.  I developed a small selection of photographs During the process of developing then I was able to see what I needed to address during my next photographic adventure.   Please find here above and below, the best of what I took during this photography adventure!



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!

Happy photography all – © Karen Robinson – November 2019

  1. Hi, Your photos are awesome, however the images displayed are of Penguin Island and Middle Island at Stingray Bay, Warrnambool.
    Logans Beach is actually on the East side of Warrnambool, just past the mouth of the Hopkins River.
    I love you work tho


    • Thank you for pointing out I had label these set of photographs with the wrong location – not good on my behave and something I normally get right. The GPS for the images were at the right location, and just me when doing the descriptions for said got it wrong. Thank you again – so appreciate as I go to a lot of trouble to make sure information is correct – I must have had an off day so to speak…sincerely Karen


  2. What a stunning scene.

    I enjoy also the descriptions of your camera and equipment. I wonder if sometime you would show items such as you describe today, how they are used, etc. I only know photography from the camera and nothing about equipment and it interests me how you use them to get results.

    As always, I enjoy your work. Thank you.


    • Hi Claudia…thank you for being interested in my photography adventures, greatly appreciate! I have made a note in my diary to do a post especially around my photography equipment and how I go about using them. Thanks for the suggestion…warm regards Karen
