INTRODUCTION

Prints are available for sale and all monies will go to Amber Community, a not-for-profit organisation.  So please pass this on to people interested in purchasing to support this great cause – thank you…

Please find here images of the – 42 Archival Limited Edition Fine Art Prints. You will find them at my ‘Photographic Portraits of Nature by ©Karen Robinson’ solo exhibition at the Broadmeadows Town Hall, Victoria – Australia.  It’s running from 28th November 2022 through to 5th February 2023 – 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday at 10 Dimboola Road Broadmeadows (closed for Xmas/New Year from 22nd December and reopening 3rd January 2023).

Ultimately the best option for viewing prints is to go and look at the exhibition in person. It’s the best way to see and appreciate the quality of the prints. Looking at prints online does not help to convey the true colours/pixel quality and the overall feeling of the print.

For Print Sales please be in direct contact with me – Karen Robinson via email at ido_karenrobinson@aapt.net.au – All monies raised from the sale of prints at this exhibition will be donated in full to Amber Community Organisation (formerly known as Road Trauma Support Services Victoria) for an ‘Expressive Arts Creative Writing Program’ for volunteers who have been impacted by road trauma.

In memory of my son Ben James Robinson who was killed in a single-vehicle car crash on the 5th of November 2009 at the age of 25 years old.

LAUNCH NIGHT Solo Exhibition

‘Photographic Portraits of Nature’ by ©Karen Robinson’

My solo exhibition launched last night (1st December 2022) titled Photographic Portraits of Nature which consists of 42 Archival Limited Fine Art Prints officially opened last night!  All our hard work and efforts resulted in a successful outcome and one that couldn’t have been achieved without the help and support of many people:  Hume City Council, Carmen Reid and her team, Northern Star Weekly Newspaper, Amber Community Organisation, my dear family, and those who were able to attend being friends, past work colleagues, neighbours and supporting Hume Council members. I also need to thank those who were unable to come to the night – a big thank you also for your ongoing support and encouragement along the way.

Below is the speech that I delivered at the Launch of  Photographic Portraits of Nature.

To all of you — sincerely thank you. 

 

  • Thank you, Carmen Reid – Hume Galleries Curator & Community Development Officer, Arts and Culture Hume City Council, Melbourne – Australia for the work that you have done on behalf of Hume City Council in opening this event tonight. And for the work you and your team did in putting together this solo exhibition for me.  A wonderful job and greatly appreciated by me and my family.  
  • I want to express my sincere gratitude to Hume City Councilfor giving me this incredible opportunity to showcase my photography work here at this grand Town Hall of Broadmeadows.
  • Thank you to Northern Star Weekly for featuring the story in their paper today -especially when it was expected to be in the paper sometime later.  It was very good of them to have brought forward the publication of the article.
  • Thank you to members of Amber Community Organisation – CEO Bernadette Nugent and Gillian Scaduto for coming across town to support the Robinson Family here tonight. And I can see other faces from the organisation as well thank you!
  • To my dear family, my husband Mark, daughter and our beautiful little granddaughter – thank you for your ongoing support, encouragement, and endless help – I am a fortunate woman to have you in my life.
  • But not to be forgotten – all of you who have kindly taken time out to attend here tonight – sincerely thank you and I hope you enjoy being here and viewing the photographic portraits of nature. Please consider purchasing prints either framed or unframed as all monies raised by their sale will be going directly to Amber Community(formerly known as Road Trauma Support Services Victoria). My family and I have been involved with this incredible organisation for over ten years now helping to raise awareness about road safety in the hope it will help prevent road trauma. All monies raised here from the sale of prints will be going towards an Expressive Arts Creative Writing Program at Amber Community for those who have been impacted by road trauma – in memory of our son, my daughter’s brother Ben.
  • Before I sign off here tonight – Just a little about the exhibition and myself. These portraits of nature shown here tonight have been a small selection chosen from a much larger collection of prints.  My hubby and I and along with my daughter and granddaughter over the years have been on many photography adventures within Victoria.  It has been a wonderful way for me to be creative, and nurture my relationships with my family and has helped to maintain a healthy sense of well-being. 
  • It’s been an incredible journey with photography and again I must say a big thank you to Hume City Council for the opportunity to share with you here tonight.  From the bottom of my heart … thank you one and all…Karen Robinson

Please Note: The exhibition will be running from now up until the 5th of February 2023. Opening hours of the Town Hall Broadmeadows are 9am to 5pm (but will be closed from 22nd December to 3rd January for Xmas & New Year). For Print sales – please contact me directly via email: ido_karenrobinson@aapt.net.au and I will respond ASAP.

“Painting and Drawing with Light”

INTRODUCTION

It’s been many months since my last blog.  With the onslaught of COVID and the changes in my daily life rhythms, I found it difficult to get back to this endeavour.  My photography adventures with my hubby and my daughter and granddaughter hadn’t waned though, we managed to still be inspired to get out and about in nature and look for interesting things to photograph.  I did manage to periodically update my Instagram account instagram.com/ido_karenrobinson and Facebook page facebook.com/karenrobinsonart if you would like to take a look.

Just this last weekend on Sunday 5th June 2022 hubby and I decided to take a drive to a new location for us called Sailors Falls, just off Ballan-Daylesford Road, Sailors Falls in Victoria – Australia.  It’s a short drive from home, an hour and 1/2 approximately, not taking into account our little stops on the way looking at nature.  It was a typical winter’s day in Victoria, cold and overcast but there wasn’t a strong wind which was good, and we had rugged up appropriately to ward off the chill of the weather.

The location proved to be a little gold mine for me as a photographer.  Because of recent heavy rainfalls, the falls themselves had a good flow of water falling over the rocky shelf.  During dryer months it would be unlikely to see this amount of water falling.  The falls’ base was surrounded by lush green vegetation – lovely huge ferns at its base and tall gum trees along the steep sides of the gouge.  Low lying bushes and vines helped to provide wonderful habitats for the local bird life. We sighted numerous small Ribbons and Fantails and could hear Kookaburras in the far distance.  The overcast sky ended up being a benefit to me while taking photographs of the falls.  The soft lighting helped to ensure I didn’t ‘blowout’ any of my image highlights thankfully!

Our time at the falls proved to be most enjoyable.  The weather was kind, and I was happy that I had the opportunity to photograph the falls at a perfect time of the year.  After spending time here, we headed into Daylesford for a pie and sauce for lunch and then back home.  Another lovely photography adventure with my hubby.

INTRODUCTION

Over a couple of weekends, Hubby and I travelled around some of Victoria’s rural countryside discovering and rediscovering locations to photograph. For these locations we decided to rise early so as to be on site for sunrise shots. It proved to be difficult to do due to the cloud coverage, but I made the best of what was available.  No matter the weather conditions it was wonderful to be out-and-about early in the day!  The fresh air, sounds of nature, cool temperature, and the solitude of the locations was spiritually uplifting.

INTRODUCTION

A photography adventure to Kyneton Botanic Gardens that runs alongside the Campaspe River at Kyneton, Victoria – Australia proved to be a wonderful place to capture images of beautiful lush green trees.  With Autumn just a few days away, yellow and rusty coloured leaves began to show through on many of the varying trees thus helping to create pretty garden scenes.  We enjoyed out time at this location which was an unexpected and welcome surprise!

INTRODUCTION

On our way home from another photography adventure, I spotted these amazing grand old gum trees situated beside Kerrie Valley Road, Kerrie, Victoria – Australia.  It’s not usual to see trees of this age nowadays alongside rural farming properties.  Even though the sunlight streaming through the tree canopies was harsh due to the time of day, I was able to capture some images that were workable.  The two coloured images within this blog were taken just to help show the scale of these beautiful old gum trees.  On my return home, I found the best developing method for the gum tree image was as a black and white. While it might be hard to appreciate here within this blog, once the black and white image was printed off, it looked like a beautifully detailed pencil drawing.

Above Photograph:  The above landscape photograph features an image in colour to help give an understanding of just how huge these gum trees were!

Above Photograph:  The above landscape photograph features the old gum tree as a black and white image – better appreciated as a print I feel!

INTRODUCTION

For this photography adventure, an early morning start was required to ensure we were on-site at around 6am in order to capture a sunrise at Kimbolton, Bo-Bay – Lake Eppalock region, Victoria – Australia.  Here I was able to scout out some lovely images of the lake’s edge where stark tall trees stood silhouetted against the warm yellow/orange morning light. It was a very beautiful moment, no wind, mild temperature for summer, with many native bird calls abounding and sights of kangaroos hopping off into the distance after their early morning feed.

Still, within the region of Kimbolton, we took a drive along a track called Crazy Evely which winded through dense native bush.  To our surprise, we stumbled on a large waterhole that featured amazing native gum tree reflections.  Because there was little to no wind and the sunlight came from the side, I was able to take a beautiful photograph of this unique waterhole and its reflection.  We stayed at this spot for some time, just enjoying nature and for a spot of lunch.  Beautiful and magical Australian bush surroundings and with not another soul around.

Below Photographs: The below landscape photograph features the same location but just from the top of the crest looking back from where the car was parked and back towards Bo-Bay, Lake Eppalock.  The golden sun side-lighting was just beautifully lighting up the spindly gum trees.  A lovely Australian bush scene.

INTRODUCTION

Another short photography adventure.  This time to the region of Trawool, Victoria – Australia. A lovely drive along Greenslopes Road revealed honey-coloured grasslands, granite statue-like boulders, and gum trees with lush green foliage evidence of receiving good rainfalls during last winter. Tree covered mountain ranges, waterholes with actual water still in them, and glimpses of the Goulburn River all made for a beautiful Australian landscape scene.

Above Photograph:  The above landscape photograph features huge granite boulders resting on a hill and looks out over towards a line of trees where the Goulburn River gently rolls by.  Far into the distance, near these trees, little black dots are actually cattle which helps demonstrate the size and distance of this landscape.

Below Photograph:  The below landscape photograph was taken by my hubby on my mobile phone for a GPS reading.  It helps the viewer appreciate just how big this landscape is and how large those granite boulders are!  I am just there in front of one with my camera equipment, photographing the scene.

 

Below Photographs:  The bird photos below were taken on our way back home along the same road and beside the Goulburn River.  Access was difficult due to the high riverbanks.  But while waiting for my hubby while he fished, I managed to get a couple of bird photos, not as good as I would have liked, couldn’t get close enough and my bird lens couldn’t get close enough either.  But it’s nice to have them anyway.  One a Grey Fantail drying off in the sun on some bush twigs and the other a Sulphur Crested Cockatoo resting in a beautiful River Gumtree.

 

 

CONCLUSION

Photography is just another way to improve one’s sense of wellbeing and at the same time – be creative. Being out-and-about experiencing the wonders of the world and the creatures it inhabits is a real privilege for sure. It really does rejuvenate the body and soul.

INTRODUCTION

A desire of mine for this photography adventure was to revisit Nagambie, Victoria – Australia.  It’s a shortish trip from our home, just over an hour or so!  I wanted to see Tahbilk Wetlands and its Tabik Lagoon during the summertime.  The last time we were here was during a winter season, on an overcast day and it looked much softer from a photographer’s point of view.  The summer sun creates harsher light which can be tricky photography-wise.  Some lagoon spots where water levels had dropped revealed the underlying mud beds the water lilies rested upon.  The riverbank gum trees looked very healthy when compared to past summertimes due to good rainfalls last winter.  A very beautiful place to visit. We had arrived on location at approximately 7am, and at that time of the day, there wasn’t a soul to been seen, just wonderful bird wildlife, fresh air, and beautiful scenery.

Above Photograph:  The above landscape photograph features my dear hubby.  Saw him taking a moment while resting on a riverbank log, gazing out into the lagoon scene.  I quickly took this shot with my mobile phone!

Below Photograph:  The below landscape photograph was the best I took on the day and a true representation of what can be seen around the lagoon region, just off the walking trail.

 

Below Photographs:  The bird photos below were taken on our way back home, but still, within this region. I spotted a juvenile Brown Goshawk, fluttering amongst the bush.  Managed to capture these two images.  While they are not as sharp or as close as I would have liked, it was still great to have the opportunity to capture an image.

 

CONCLUSION

Photography is just another way to improve one’s sense of wellbeing and at the same time – be creative. Being out-and-about experiencing the wonders of the world and the creatures it inhabits is a real privilege for sure. It really does rejuvenate the body and soul.

INTRODUCTION

A short photography adventure to another spot along the Goulburn River, at Turner Island Lane, Kirwans Bridge, Victoria – Australia.  This beautiful river scene is one of Victoria’s largest rivers, popular with both holidaymakers and fishermen.  But it can be dangerous and swimmers need to be careful as it has strong currents and lots of tree logs that are hidden beneath its surface.  I was able to take this photo capturing the river bank’s natural habitat that provides life to many varieties of bird wildlife.  In the image, high up in the clouds small flocks of Corellas can be seen.  Hubby and I will return to explore this region further as time goes by!

CONCLUSION

Photography is just another way to improve one’s sense of wellbeing 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.

INTRODUCTION

At last hubby and I have been able to spend some time undertaking more photography adventures!  Covid-19 restrictions – as to where we could travel have been lifted, and this has also lifted our spirits. While driving along Donna Buang Road, Warburton, Victoria – Australia, a destination just outside of Melbourne, I sighted this mountain-side of spindly gum trees amongst lush green tree ferns.  I just had to stop by the roadside and spend time trying to capture the grandeur of this region.  It was beautiful, peaceful and spiritually uplighting to stand there gazing upon one of mother nature’s creations.

CONCLUSION

Photography is just another way to improve one’s sense of wellbeing 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.

INTRODUCTION

Before Melbourne Australia’s current lockdown, hubby and I took a photography adventure back up to Mount Franklin, Victoria – Australia.  We arrived early enough to capture the sunrise from Mount Franklin Road.  A beautiful morning, not a cloud in the sky and the sun’s golden rays stretched across the plains creating long shadows! As we commenced our journey back home, I managed to take a photograph of green pastures covered in a light frost, and once more the winter morning sunlight was soft as it stretched out across the vast landscape.  Lovely morning drive and managed to capture some nice shots of this region.

INTRODUCTION

Lovely winter’s day at Daylesford, Victoria – Australia for this particular photography adventure – pre-Melbourne lockdown!  At Lake Daylesford itself, there was little-to-no wind, so perfect for capturing mirror reflections in the lake.  Spindly, leafless lakeside trees helped to create almost abstract images.  The weather was perfect and the lighting worked well for these images.  Another great day out-and-about enjoying mother nature and marvelling at how the landscape changes from one season to the next.  Thus offering wonderful creative opportunities…

INTRODUCTION

A photography adventure just down the road from where we live was enough for us on this day!  During winter Mickleham, Victoria – Australia, becomes a wintergreen visual feast featuring lush green grass-covered fields, dotted gum trees here and there, and in the far distance, Mount Macedon Ranges can be seen.  The morning light was just beautiful on this day, and I was able to capture these images before the clouds covered the whole of the sky.  So nice to be able to just drive locally to capture great landscape scenes.  Sadly, since the time I took these photographs, Melbourne – Australia has gone back into ‘lockdown’ due to increased numbers of people with Covide-19 virus.  For me, my photography adventures will now need to be around the home.  There will also be photographic opportunities across from where we live as there is a big open field and creek which I will be able to explore during this time safely. Hubby and I are more fortunate than some, not doing badly during this period of time, but it is a constant worry because of our ages, so time to be ever so careful!

INTRODUCTION

A freezing cold winter’s day drive along Ribicon‘s Blue Range Road in Victoria – Australia for this photography adventure!  We firstly stopped at ‘Little River Bridge Cool Temperate Rainforest‘ where we discovered a beautiful little river that supported moss-covered trees and large tree ferns.  Further along Blue Range Road, we stopped to observe and take photographs of heavily frosted vegetation.  This scene was just in one small part of a bend in the road beside a very small creek that runs under the road itself. A magical sight, especially when viewed up close.  Little water crystals clung to branches, leaves, flowers and blades of grass. It was a challenge for me to take photographs of this white spectacle and will need to return at a later date with more knowledge and understanding of this subject matter.  But what a lovely drive and discovery, another wonderful opportunity to be out-and-about enjoying mother nature’s wonders!

INTRODUCTION

A great photography fine at Limestone, Victoria – Australia! Here at Yea River Wetlands on Murrindini Road, we discovered a mystical landscape.  Beautiful tall gum trees stood in pools of water with their reflections adding further interest.  The winter mist drifted throughout the region helping to create a perfect opportunity for me to capture these lovely images.  As hubby and I walked around the wetlands looking for good compositions, we found ourselves being completely taken in by the silence and beauty of this special scene.  Truly a privilege to be able to experience mother nature’s best handiwork!
