Over the last month hubby and I revisited our local Woodlands.  Woodlands Historic Park, Greenvale, Victoria – Australia is a reserve we had frequently visited especially during COVID-19 lockdowns when travelling more than 5 kilometres from home wasn’t possible.  It has become a favourite place of ours now, not just for photography adventures but also for taking time out to enjoy its woodlands, kangaroos, and birdlife.

Different times of the year and different times of the day can present interesting photographic opportunities.  The sometimes scrubby woodlands offer natural habitats for varying types of wildlife.  It takes many visits to truly appreciate what this reserve has to offer.

The Eastern Grey Kangaroo can be seen frequently throughout the Woodlands.  Below are two images, one with a large male, and a female with a joey in her pouch.  The other was a very large male Kangaroo which some signs of an old injury on its hind leg.  It must be noted that caution should be taken around these animals and best not approached.  Respectfully viewed from a distance for the safety of both the animal and human advised.  Please note I took these photographs of the animals and birds with my long lens 150 to 600mm, so I was a long way from them.

Photographing birds can be challenging and at the same time a wonderful way of emerging oneself in the natural world.  Hubby helps to spot them for me so I can then concentrate on photographing them.  We make a good team.  He also helps lug around the photography equipment along with chairs, food, and other things of use – which makes for a great photography adventure.



Photography is just another way to improve one’s sense of well-being and at the same time – be creative. Being out and about experiencing the natural 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 – August 2022
