Hubby and I embarked on a short photography adventure to Mount Macedon, Victoria – Australia Macedon Regional Park Region just prior to having to stay at home due to the spread of Corona Virus. We drove along a deserted track called Hells Hole. We found a beautiful lush green forest. Fern ground cover and tall spindly trees helped to create a magical environment. A wonderful retreat for natural wildlife! We are going to miss these times and hopefully this time next year, all of this part of our history will be over and we all have the chance to return to some kind of normalcy…
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. Also used 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 use a BH-40 Ballhead for my tripod which helps make taking my photographs not just easier but much more enjoyable. During these photography adventures, I use an Apple iPhone 8 Plus mobile phone for quick spontaneous photographs and to ensure I 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. But over the months to come – these adventures will need to be put on hold. It will be a time to discover home photography – perhaps Macro! Photography is just another way to improve one’s sense of wellbeing and at the same time – be creative!
