INTRODUCTION

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.

 

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, 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. 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!

INTRODUCTION

Troubling times and with the constant concern of either catching the Corona Virus and/or becoming a carrier of it means we currently live in fear and uncertainty. Its times like these that I revert back to my old mantra ‘doing something each day that ticks the happy box‘ to ensure I can maintain a good sense of wellbeing both in body and soul. So I can be a positive influence within my family circle and one with those I have some sort of relationship with – be it work or hobby-wise.  So hubby and I decided to do a photography adventure back to a region we had visited so time ago – Mount Macedon, Victoria – Australia.  Now we didn’t make contact with other people, respecting the requirement of ‘social distancing‘ which meant a drive through Mount Macedon Regional Park around the Sanatorium Lake area was perfect – not a soul to be seen.  And this was before more stringent community requirements had been put in place. The early morning drive through this beautiful region revealed misty forests and lush green vegetation.  We drove along mostly unfrequented tracks and roads – truly magical, tranquil and spiritually rejuvenating experience.

 

Special Note:  Thank you to all those in the service of helping people be safe, recover from illness, help keep us in supplies of food and other necessities … sincerely and with much gratitude…from us photography adventurers!

INTRODUCTION

We decided to revisit the areas of Harcourt and Elphinstone for this photography adventure.  Another early morning start in order to be on location around sunrise.  I found a couple of compositions that worked for me.  One being at Elphinstone just as the sun rose over a far distance hillside, backlighting scraggy old leafless trees.  The golden autumn sun helped to silhouette their limbs creating a striking image. In the foreground, a rippling pond appeared silver like in this beautiful early morning light.  The photograph directly below was taken at Dog Rocks, Harcourt which is located within Mount Alexander National Park.  I worked on two compositions, one portrait dimensions and developed as a colour image; and the other landscape dimensions developed as a black and white image.  During the taking of both these photographs, soft side lighting from the sun allowed for great highlights, deep shadows thus overall good contrast.  This was a short trip for us and I was happy with the photographs taken during the morning.  Then back home to recover from the 4am early rise for us oldies.  Just great to be able to get out-and-about once again!

 

 

 

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.

INTRODUCTION

Strath Creek, Victoria – Australia is one of my favourite photography adventure locations, especially during the Autumn and Winter times of the year.  During these times, seasonal rains transform the local countryside from summertime dry brown to winter lush green!  It was just by good fortune we came across this particular location.  A dead-end road through local farming land revealed such beautiful panoramic landscape.  On our return home, we noted to come back again here to especially photograph birds.  Once again feeling tired but most fortunate to be able to take in some of the worlds most beautiful and peaceful locations – photographers’ paradise for sure…

 

 

 

 

PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT USED

During this 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 and my new (bird) lens, a Sigma150-600mm F5-6.3 DGOS HSM with a Sigma Mount Converter MC-11. I handheld the camera or mounted it on a Wimberley WH-200 Gimbal Tripod Head II with quick release base. I also used my Apple iPhone 8 Plus mobile phone for quick spontaneous photographs and gain GPS location readings.

INTRODUCTION

Up at 5am in order to be on site just before sunrise can be an exhilarating experience but also challenging on cold Autumn mornings!  During this photography adventure, we decided to revisit a stunning region of Victoria, Australia Kerrisdale which is situated within the Valley of a Thousand Hills.  Earlier this year, during a previous summertime visit, the region was dry and brown; fortunately, recent rains had transformed the landscape back to how I remembered it from years before – beautiful and lush green.  On this morning, the early morning light was just beautiful and allowed me to take some mystical photographs looking across layer after layer of mist covered rolling hills.  After our morning adventure, we headed back down the valley for a much-needed coffee break and a chat about where to next…

INTRODUCTION

It took two separate visits to the Forest Glade Gardens for hubby and me to view the entire 6 hectares of this well known beautiful private garden. At this time of the year, Autumn, the gardens have grandiose leaf displays of yellows, oranges, reds, pinks backdropped against lush green lawns. There was lots of walking involved, up and down stairs throughout its four distinct garden themes:  large English section with huge exotic trees and ornamental plants, the Japanese garden, rolling green lawns, and the cool, shady fern gully.  We also sighted many garden statues, fountains, pergolas and ponds throughout the gardens which gave us an opportunity to stop, catch our breath, take some photographs and just enjoy our surroundings.  On both photography adventure occasions we left feeling most tired but happy we took the time to visit these beautiful and unique gardens.

 

 

 

PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT USED

During this 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, and a Sigma150-600mm F5-6.3 DGOS HSM with a Sigma Mount Converter MC-11. For some of these photographs, I used the camera hand-held but for most of the shots, I used a Wimberley WH-200 Gimbal Tripod Head II with quick release base. I also used my Apple iPhone 8 Plus mobile phone for quick spontaneous photographs and gain GPS location readings.

INTRODUCTION

On our way back home from Warrnambool May this year, we stopped off at Tower Hill Wildlife Reserve, Illowa, Victoria – Australia. A beautiful view from the roadside helped us to appreciate the 4km wide crater lake. The wildlife reserve sits inside the extinct volcano formed some 30,000 years ago and is considered a haven for wildlife as the tiny crater-bound ecosystem provides a natural habitat for many animals. While the day was overcast, the weather was kind and I was able to take a small selection of landscape photographs. Sadly we could only stay for a short time, but it is a location we hope to return to sometime in the near future.

NB:  Below is one of the many emus which can be seen while walking and driving through the wildlife reserve.  They are big and not too afraid of humans which can be a bit scary.  This particular emu must have thought we had food for it, but that big beak and those giant claw-like feet sure made us realise that there birds need to be respected and we kept our distance!

 

 

 

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

One grey cold autumn day in May this year, hubby and I travelled to Mount Macedon, Victoria – Australia for another photography adventure.  This region is best known for its19th century gardens and associated collection of extravagant large homes.  On this day, we just concentrated on the Gardens Of Tieve Tara – a truly beautiful and picturesque garden consisting of 7.5 acres of lush grounds, sweeping lawns, a whimsical playground, lakes, geese and fountains (Tieve Tara 2018).  As a hobbyist photographer, these gardens during autumn provided me with an incredible variety of opportunities to capture the magic of autumn; there was so much beautiful vibrant colour and variations of textures to enjoy!  We had a lovely time walking about and photographing these gardens, and will definitely be back in years to come to visit other wonderful gardens within the region of Mount Macedon.

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.

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.

INTRODUCTION

Well…we decided to head out into a rainy, cold autumn day for another photography adventure!  Mount Macedon became our choice of locations, as it was only an hour or so from where we lived, and therefore travelling time, down to a minimum.  It’s truly a beautiful part of the world, and especially at this time of the year!  Trees and gardens are bursting with rich colours of bright yellows, oranges, varying shades of green, burnt browns and lipstick reds.  Most of our time was spent dogging rain, as I took photographs where ever possible. And some photographs where actually taken from inside the car, peering out of the passenger side window, while my hubby tried to position the car, so I could get the best composition.  Everything was wet; the sky heavy with grey clouding and parts of the Mount Macedon area was shrouded in fine mist. This made it challenging to ensure I was able to come away with a creative amount of photography that I would be pleased with.  During our driving about, we decided to get out of the cold and rain, and lunch at the Historical Mount Macedon Hotel.  Here we enjoyed some hot food that helped recharge our batteries. While we eat, we sat beside a beautiful open fire-place to warm up, before heading back out to see what other photography treasures, we could find!  All in all, it was a good day – despite the rain and cold…

 

 

 

 

PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT USED

During this garden 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 some these photographs I used the camera mounted on a tripod with a remote timer and for others I handheld.  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!

Some of the photographs I decided to develop minimally being the misty ones.  The truly autumn photographs I developed ensuring they maintained their colour bunch!  And some worked best as black and white photographs to help show off features better seen with a limited colour palette. NB:  Please click on each photograph to find the camera settings use

 

 

 

 

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

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!

THE PHOTOGRAPHS – Two One!

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…

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!
