“Painting and Drawing with Light”

INTRODUCTION

Our photography adventure included a day trip around country Victoria (Australia) to the regions of Strath Creek, Kerrisdale, Yea and Goughs Bay. It’s still Autumn here, and the weather is mild and beautiful making it an enjoyable experience.  My photography goal was to seek out Autumn displays.  A stop at the Yea River Bridge in Yea revealed a magnificent autumn display riverside (image above and below).  The early afternoon sun shone through the oak tree leaves creating a wonder world of warm colours.  Pretty green ivy climbed the oak tree trunk and river reflections completed a glorious autumn image.  Along Broadford-Flowerdale Road Strath Creek a row of golden yellow leafed poplar trees stood tall against a mountain range and clear blue sky creating a truely lovely autumn portrait. A drive by the Kerrisdale Estate along Parrot Creek Road revealed again wonderful autumn displays.  Our last stop of the day was at Goughs Bay on Lake Eildon where we took in vast views of the bay from Bayside Boulevard.  The calm blue bay, orange rock foreground, distant green mountain range and clear blue sky during the mid afternoon sun was just magical, peaceful and a wonderful way to wind up our day’s photography adventure!  NB:  On another day we stopped at Marnong Estate Winery Mickleham where I managed to capture an image of the winery and distance fields and mountains showcasing glorious autumn colours (image at the bottom of this blog).

CONCLUSION

Photography is just another way to improve one’s sense of wellbeing and at the same time – be creative. Being out-and-about experiencing the wonders of the world and the creatures it inhabits is a real privilege for sure. It really does rejuvenate the body and soul.

Happy photography all – © Karen Robinson – May 2021

    • Hi James, thank you for taking a look and commenting, and for your encouraging words of support. The four oak trees are one of my favourites of the day as well! As a photographer, you never know when a photograph is going to offer more than expected and this one was one of them. The arching trees leaning into one another, with a slight haze in the background and side lighting with autumn leaves within the top corners of the image, helps to create an image more unique I feel. Thank you once again…Karen
