INTRODUCTION

On our way back home from Warrnambool to Melbourne – Australia after spending a number of photography adventure days photographing around the region, we stopped to take some photographs at Mepunga – Bay of Islands Coastal Park.  Here we had the opportunity to view beautiful coastal cliffs and rock formations.  Lush green coastal vegetation, yellow and orange sands, deep blue sea and blue skies with storm clouds drifting across created an ideal location for a keen photographer such as me.  Although my tiredness from our 3 days of travel did dampen my enthusiasm on this occasion.  Will need to return hopefully one day to actually take the walk along the beach itself!

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

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 and below, 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.  Photography is just another way to improve one’s sense of wellbeing and at the same time – be creative!

INTRODUCTION

Our time at Port FairyGriffiths Island, Victoria – Australia was spent walking around Griffiths Island which is part of the Port Fairy Coastal Reserve. We experienced: picturesque beach scenes; sighted the Port Fairy Lighthouse and wide ocean views; natural vegetation where we spotted playful small wallabies; coastal water birds; and lots of fresh air!  This photography adventure was an add-on to our visit to Warrnambool during our attendance at the 64th Convention & Inter-Club Photographic Exhibition 2018.  We should have spent more time at this historic fishing port, but our need to get back home and rest up, after a long weekend away was needed!  Maybe one day we will be back…
