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

The aim of this travel and photography adventure was to revisit the region of Daylesford.  It was a beautiful winter’s day and the drive through Victoria’s countryside invigorating!  My husband and I – only had a day to see a few locations of note which were the township of Daylesford itself where we stopped for lunch, then to Mount Franklin, Lake Jubilee and lastly to Trentham Falls.  This was a big-enough day for us, and I managed to capture some noteworthy photographs which made me happy.  But most importantly, we had a lovely day together driving and walking through natural Australian bush-land. During our travels we discovered breathtaking expansive views looking out and across farmlands from Mount Franklin, a forest of tall slender Birch trees at the top of Mount Franklin, water birds on Lake Jubilee, actual water running over and down Trentham Falls – all achieved while we embraced the glorious weather that Victoria had to offer!

 

 

 

 

 

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 Lense. For some of the shots, I used the camera hand-held, and for others, I used the camera mounted on a tripod with a remote timer.  Each photography adventure helps me learn more and more about my camera and lense; and also hopefully helps me becoming a better photographer. I also used my Samsung Galaxy S6 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 6.  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 travel and photography adventure!
