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 landscape into lush green rolling pastures of green.  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.

 

 

 

PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT USED

During this landscape photography exercise – 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. For all these photographs I used the camera mounted on a tripod with a remote timer.  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 CC.  I developed a small selection of photographs During the process of developing them I was able to see what I needed to address during my next photographic adventure.   Please find both 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 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

Part of Hubby’s and my photography adventure to the King Valley Balloon Festival last weekend involved an amazing visual sensation which featured a ‘Night Glow Light Show‘.  At 7pm, located at the Brown Brothers Airfield, hot-air balloons put on a colourful light show that was backed dropped against a starry night sky. This spectacular event was witnessed by some 3,000 people!  I have to confess, it posed a huge photographic challenge, well for me at least. We very much enjoyed both the morning King Valley Mass Balloon Ascension and this Night Glow Show.  Will definitely try to come back in 2019!

 

 

 

PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT USED

During this miscellaneous photography exercise – 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. For all these photographs I used the camera mounted on a tripod.  I also used my Apple iPhone 8 Plus mobile phone for quick spontaneous photographs and gain GPS location readings.  Taking these photographs with a night sky, bright lighting caused by the flames and having people moving about the balloons continuously – did posed a big challenge for me!

On my return home, I downloaded all the photographs into Adobe Lightroom Classic CC.  I developed a small selection of photographs During the process of developing them I was able to see what I needed to address during my next photographic adventure.   Please find both 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 man-made wonders, 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

Last Saturday, at 3am in the morning, Hubby and I headed off to Milawa, Victoria – Australia to see the 6.45am King Valley Balloon Festival ‘Sunrise Balloon Mass Ascension’ at Brown Brothers Milawa airfield. The grey overcast morning didn’t stop the event taking place thankfully, and spectators were able to view for free this spectacular yearly event.  We also had the chance to walk around and experience the ascension close-up which gave us an appreciation of just how big these balloons are once in flight. We enjoyed our time marvelling at these giants of the sky and this photography adventure certainly provided me with a challenge in trying to photograph them.

INTRODUCTION

A beautiful day at Woodlands Historic Park, Victoria – Australia which is located just a short distance from my home.  Hubby and I with other members of the Craigieburn Camera Club engaged in a ‘free format photograph shot’ where we wandered around this nature preserve taking photographs that were of interest to the individual photographer.  We experienced glimpses of landscapes and wildlife seen by European settlers in the 1840’s (Park Victoria 2018).  A 150-year old homestead stands on the property; indigenous canoe trees, native woodland and grassland are all part of the reserve’s offering.  A fenced ‘Back Paddock’ is where we spotted mobs of kangaroos and numerous native birds (Park Victoria 2018).  It was a very pleasant experience, and we finished up having coffee and scones at the Historic Homestead.  Returning home involved just a few minutes drive which was a lovely change for us!

INTRODUCTION

This photography adventure was just part of a day visiting Glenrowan, Victoria – Australia. Hubby and I spotted a number of beautiful scenic spots within this region to stop and take photographs.  On the tail end of Autumn, cherry trees at Smith’s Orchard and grapevines at Morrison’s displayed glorious brightly coloured leaves. Local farming landscape scenes hidden away from mainstream roads revealed countryside enjoyed by local farmers and for those who adventure away from the usual beaten tourism track.

 

 

 

PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT USED

During this landscape photography exercise – 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. For all these photographs I used the camera mounted on a tripod with a remote timer.  I also used my Apple iPhone 8 Plus mobile phone for quick spontaneous photographs and gain GPS location readings.  NB: My camera remote decided to fail during this photography adventure which caused me some grieve in not being able to successfully use the ‘bracketing’ option on my camera.  Lesson…bring a spare camera remote!

INTRODUCTION

This photography adventure involved an afternoon drive to Hesket, Victoria – Australia ‘Sanatorium Lake‘.  Hubby and I had the pleasure of having our daughter and her baby join us which we found most enjoyable.  Sanatorium Lake is a man-made lake, famous for its intense reflections, and during the 19th century, the cool climate of the Macedon region was thought to provided a perfect environment for patients suffering tuberculosis. A very cool afternoon it was where fine mist filtered through the lush green vegetation creating a mystical atmosphere within the surrounding forest.  Being a week day, the location was isolated which added an extra feeling of being immersed into a dreamy world where I was able to truly concentrate all my creative efforts into taking photographs of this magical place.

INTRODUCTION

This photography adventure was just part of one day visiting the region of Cheshunt, Victoria – Australia.  The area has many vineyards nestled in and around the edge of the mountain ranges and alongside of the King River.  Hubby did some fishing while I engaged myself in taking photographs of this beautiful part of Victoria.  The day was hot so pottering around alongside the water’s edge of the King River was cooling!

INTRODUCTION

This photography adventure with hubby was just a short stint from home, up towards an area called Beveridge, Victoria – Australia.  There I took some photographs of a glorious sunset that could be seen from the local Golf Course.  Positing myself looking over the white rose bushes, over the pruned green golf course, and up towards the mountain range in the distance, we were able to view, a beautiful golden sunset.  The evening was warm for an autumn nightfall which meant, standing at this location was very pleasant.  Hubby and I afterwards then also enjoyed a pizza at the Golf Course Bistro – the end to a perfect day!

On an other occasion, I had the opportunity to take more photographs at this location but further along from the original spot.  Here, we spotted kangaroos resting, feeding and just taking in the end of day moments I feel…

INTRODUCTION

This photography adventure day didn’t quite turn out as we had hoped.  The plan was to travel to the region of Cathedral Range State Park (Taggety, Victoria – Australia} and do a number of walks, take great photos and then go home satisfied. The Cathedral Range is a spectacular seven kilometre ridge of sharply upturned sedimentary rock. Well, we were a little ambitious – to say the least!  We knew the walks could be challenging, and especially for our age being that we are in our mid-sixties.  But somehow, in our minds, we thought we would be able to managed the walks and climbs at this location.  On our arrival early morning, and upon reading the signage about the said walks and trails, we came to realise that we were not ‘experienced advanced climbers’!  So no walking the trails for us and travelling along the dirt road, in the car, became the limit for us on this particular day.  I had to contend myself with just being able to take photographs of small portions of the region from the roadside instead of panorama versions others have been able to achieve.  Oh the joys of getting older! My hubby did get some fishing in at Thornton Goulburn River which made him happy.  And we drove through Molesworth, Buxton and the Highlands on our way back home which proved to be a very nice drive, also captured some worthy photographs as we went.  But it wasn’t our best photography adventure day, still we got out-and-about and that is always very good…

 

 

PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT USED

During this landscape photography exercise – 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. For most of these photographs I used the camera mounted on a tripod with a remote timer and for some, I handheld the camera, ensuring I had engaged the camera’s stabiliser.  I also used my Apple iPhone 8 Plus mobile phone for quick spontaneous photographs and gain GPS location readings.

INTRODUCTION

This photography adventure day involved my hubby and I joining the Craigieburn Camera Club on a lovely day trip to the historic Tahbilk Winery and Wetlands, Tabilk, Victoria – Australia. Its name Tabilk-tabilk ‘place of many waterholes’ in the language of the Daung-wurrung clans, the first people of Australia, is a historic family owned winery with the property consisting of 1,214 hectares of rich river flats and a frontage of 11kms to the Goulburn River and 8kms of permanent backwaters and creeks (Tahbilk 2018).  We managed to walk some of the Tahbilk Eco Trails visiting Landing 1 and 2 with a crossover on the Long Bridge which was ‘built from timer hewn on the Estate to replace a ford on the site soon after the Goulburn Weir was completed in 1889.  In 1996 it was completely rebuilt, again with time cut and milled on the property’ (Tahbilk 2018).  One of the areas I found great to photograph was inside the Tahbilk underground cellars. Following the stairs down into the original underground cellars built-in 1862 felt like stepping back in time!  Despite the greyness of the skies, I was able to take a range of good scenic photographs which made me happy…

My favourite photograph of the trip is this particular one featured here below.  Taken in the Cellar Hall.  I was pleased I was able to work out the correct camera settings and also using my tripod in order to achieve this photograph below.

 

 

 

It was a grey old day but here below the grey clouds help to highland the towering water tanks.

“Photography:  Painting and Drawing with Light”

 

 

 

 

INTRODUCTION

Hubby and I – for this photography adventure, travelled up to Mount Wombat Lookout, Strathbogie, Victoria – Australia. I wanted to capture the sunrise as it came up and over the mountain range.  Mount Wombat Lookout is situated on a mountain plateau which offers 360 degree views of breathtaking landscape – a photographers dream! On our way back home, I was also able to capture some beautiful shots which took in the views around the ‘Kevin View’ farming region and of a small lake in Euroa.  Early morning is such a beautiful time of the day, and watching it unfold and seeing the light change as the morning processes – just magical!

 

 

 

 

 

PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT USED

During this landscape photography exercise – 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. For most of these photographs I used the camera mounted on a tripod with a remote timer and for some, I handheld the camera, ensuring I had engaged the camera’s stabiliser.  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 CC.  I developed a small selection of photographs During the process of developing them I was able to see what I needed to address during my next photographic adventure.   Please find both above and below, the best of what I took during this photography adventure!

My favourite photograph of the trip is this particular one featured here below.  Taken from the very top of Mount Wombat, looking out above natural Australian bush, towards the mountain ranges and directly into the sun – made for a magical photograph.

 

 

The photograph featured here below didn’t work well in colour, so I decided to see if it worked better as a black and white photograph.  I was pleased with the results, especially after using Adobe Lightroom Classic CC’s ‘dehaze’ tool within the ‘Develop’ module.  It gave the image a soft magical look which I like.  The towers, wire fencing, the shed and tubing on the ground where my hubby is standing, gives the image an industrial feel. Interesting, when taking into account, it is situated at the very top of Mount Wombat which has 360 degree landscape views of the Strathbogie region.

 

 

 

 

CONCLUSION

Being out-and-about experiencing the natural wonders of the world 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!

Happy photography all!

INTRODUCTION

The Craigieburn Camera Club organised an outing to this event to give club members an opportunity to photograph an array of vehicles at Craigieburn Central, Victoria – Australia. Jess – the model came dressed in her best Rockabilly gear to pose for the club with the cars, bikes and trucks.  It was a challenge for me as I had not photographed at such an event before.  Trying to navigate around moving people and vehicles, posed some difficulty at times.  The day was very overcast which also presented another thing to consider!  But I was rewarded for my photography efforts I feel…

 

 

 

 

PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT USED

During this miscellaneous photography exercise – 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. For all of the shots, I hand-held my camera.  I also used my Apple iPhone 8 Plus mobile phone for quick spontaneous photographs and to gain GPS location readings.

 

 

 

 

THE PHOTOGRAPHS

On my return home, I downloaded all the photographs into Adobe Lightroom Classic CC.  I developed a small selection of photographs During the process of developing the photographs, I decided to ensure that the vehicles where the centre of attention within each photograph by darkening the background. Please find both above and below, the best of what I took during this photography adventure!
