“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 Mepunga – Bay of Islands Coastal Park. Here we had the opportunity to view beautiful coastal cliffs and rock formations. Lush green coastal vegetation, yellow and orange sands, deep blue sea and blue skies with storm clouds drifting across created an ideal location for a keen photographer such as me. Although my tiredness from our 3 days of travel did dampen my enthusiasm on this occasion. Will need to return hopefully one day to actually take the walk along the beach itself!
PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT USED
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!

Once again, beautiful photos. What scenery! I am reminded of the California coast. You are so lucky to live in such a beautiful area.
Thank you, Claudia – just so you know Mepunga is 260 kilometres away from where I live in Victoria. That’s a round trip of approximately 520 kilometres and a total of approximately 6 hours travelling time. But we are used to making big trips within the State of Victoria and the more we do the further we are having to travel to be able to visit new places. Australia’s a big country and long trips are a norm for us here, well at least for me anyway. Thank you once more for your interest and ongoing support for my weblog…warm regards Karen
