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.
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 these photographs I used the camera mounted on a tripod and also handheld when needed. 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 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!
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!
