INTRODUCTION

During our photography adventure journey between Melbourne and Warrnambool – Australia, we decided to get up early one morning and head towards Penshurst which has within its region, a lookout positioned atop of Mount Rouse.  Here we found magnificent 360-degree views stretching across vast farming fields.  While the early morning was cold, rainy and cloudy we experienced a beautiful sunrise.  We were the only ones there at that particular time of the day and it was spiritually uplifting watching a new day being born and hearing all the native bird wildlife chirping away as the sun rose. On our way back down from the top of Mount Rouse, we encountered numerous mobs of Kangaroos hopping on and alongside the road. We found it most enjoyable to watch them as they bounded off into the surrounding native bush.  Another photography adventure achieved and leaving us feeling good about the world around us…

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

THE PHOTOGRAPHS

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!

 

 

 

CONCLUSION

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!

INTRODUCTION

Hubby and I stopped at Red Rock (Alvie, Victoria – Australia) during one of our photography adventures last month. It wasn’t planned, but thankfully we did take the opportunity to divert from our journey to Warrnambool. May rains had worked its magic and turned this summer dry landscape into lush green rolling pastures.  We experienced magnificent 360-degree views from atop of Red Rock which over looks Lake Corangamite and Lake Colac. Spectacular complex volcanic sites, formed by eruptions some 10’s of thousands of years ago with the last eruption 8000 years ago. These can be seen across the surrounding topography of volcanic plain and the 25,000-hectare Lake Corangamite. We spent some time here taking photographs and just enjoying the breathtaking views from every angle, on a glorious Autumn day.
