During this photography adventure hubby and I travelled to a rural location called High Camp, Victoria – Australia for the third time within the last couple of weeks! It is just an hour from where we live and I wanted to capture photographs of another sunset within this region. It was a hot afternoon and the early evening remained just as hot! But an evening breeze helped cool us down as we spent an hour or so, just watching the day come to an end. The looming clouds across the sky helped to create some dramatic sights. I manage to find a spot that had a run of huge granite boulders along a ridge where the sun set just behind them. Blackbirds drifted into view as I was taking some of the shots and the above photograph ended up being my favourite taken during this particular photography adventure. Just simply beautiful…
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.
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!
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!
