During this photography adventure hubby and I revisited a rural location called Nulla Vale, Victoria – Australia. During a previous visit, I had spotted this composition just off the side of the Lancefield-Pylong Road. Atop of a huge granite boulder, a tree grows somehow! Its long dangling trunk and roots caressing the boulder and finding its way to mother earth. We stayed for a short time here before heading back home. My main objective was to just photograph this composition. On my return home and during the process of developing the photographs, I decided to see how it would look like as a black and white photograph. For me, the monochrome image tells a more dramatic story and can be seen below.
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, 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!
