During this photography adventure, we decided to visit the Langi Ghiran State Park, Warrak, Victoria – Australia. Here we discovered a beautiful secluded reservoir named Langi Ghiran where I was able to photograph wonderful reflections of Australian native gum trees in the nearly still waters. Access to this region required us to travel along dirt tracks where we had to drive carefully in order not to damage our little car as it is not a 4 wheel drive! The Easter Creek Track leads us through a small valley of trees standing amoungst lush green ferns, very picturesque. A short walk up the track had us finding the region’s local lookout where vast panoramic views revealed farming plains and distant mountain ranges. But sadly the view from the lookout was mostly obscured by large tree branches. The weather was mild, with clear blue skies above us and with the sun shining brightly made for an enjoyable photography adventure…
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!
