INTRODUCTION

During our stay at my hubby’s brother’s place in Bruthen, Victoria – Australia, we decided to get up early and take a drive along the picturesque Wards Road. It winds its way though beautiful green local farming properties that have views that stretch for miles.  Despite the fact the morning was overcast, we found the temperature just right for this time of the year! Cool for a summer morning and perfect for enjoying such a treasure trove of quietness, fresh air and remoteness.  While we were there, we spotted some wild emus strolling across a grass field where they had been drinking from a watering hole.  They were then heading back towards thick bush up alongside of the property.  The photographs I took of them are not the best, but felt it important to include as we don’t get to see them very often.  This photography adventure lifted our spirits and had us feeling good for the rest of the day!

 

 

 

 

PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT USED

During this 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 and my new (bird) lens, a Sigma150-600mm F5-6.3 DGOS HSM with a Sigma Mount Converter MC-11 mounted on a Wimberley WH-200 Gimbal Tripod Head II with quick release base. 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 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!

 

 

 

 

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

On this photography adventure day, we only had to take a 5 minute drive from home!  Beside one of Westmeadows, Victoria – Australia local backstreets there stands a tall old gumtree with a large hollow.  At this location each year, around November, Sulphur-crested Cockatoos come and nest at what is perhaps an unusual location.  Cars and people busily pass by daily under their nest, but they seem to have adapted to the suburban lifestyle.  I cannot help feel sad for our bird wildlife.  Melbourne’s ever emerging urban sprawl means that tree felling of large areas of land is therefore – stripping large areas of bird habitats.  Thus leaving birds to find unusual locations to subsist or not at all – hence bird numbers dwindling.  So I hope in years to come to continue to find these iconic Australian native birds revisit this old gum tree…

INTRODUCTION

We decided for this photography adventure that we should visit my hubby’s brother who lives in Bruthen – a small township near Lakes Entrance, Victoria – Australia.  On our way there, we made a slight detour to visit the Lakes Entrance area, a seaside location occupied at this time of the year with many holiday makers! The weather on our arrival was generally overcast but still pleasant.  It was difficult to photograph scenes I wanted, and I realised that aerial shots would be best, so we went to a couple of lookouts to help capture some overview shots of Lakes Entrance.  On distance sandy islands and dunes, Little Black Cormorants, Pied Cormorants and Australian pelicans flocked in abundance, far enough away from human contact, and too far for me to photograph close-up with my existing camera equipment.  Numerous small and medium-sized pleasure water-crafts zoomed throughout the waterways, while shoreline tourists spent time sightseeing.  My hubby spent a little time fishing to-no-avail but he enjoyed the process despite this fact.  It was easy to see why water-loving families migrated here for the holiday season, especially if they had access to a boat!

INTRODUCTION

Our photography adventure on this day had us travelling to just outside the township of East Warburton, Victoria – Australia, visiting the mysterious and spectacular Redwood Forest.  The forest’s exotic Californian Redwoods being the tallest tree species in the world, planted by the Board of Works around 1930 means they are now nearing a century of growth.  There are over 1476 trees ranging from 20 metres to the tallest being 55 metres. During our stroll through these magnificent trees, we felt dwarfed by their sheer height!  Because we came on a clear sunny day, and around mid-morning, the sunlight was gently filtering through the tree tops thus allowing for perfect photography conditions. Towards the end of the plantation, we discovered walking trails that took us to Cement Creek East Branch.  Here we found the fresh water creek babbling through lush green vegetation where numerous well established Lacey Tree-ferns stood like elegant umbrellas. Their large leaf canopies filtered warm yellow sunlight onto small green ground level ferns.  Further in from the creek’s edge, lanky tall gum trees housed noisy native birds. Finding this magical environment alongside of the Redwood Forest was truly a bonus, and unexpected. We enjoyed our discovery of this location and the time we spent there…

INTRODUCTION

This photography adventure involved hubby and I visiting The Royal Melbourne Zoo Parkville, Victoria – Australia for the second time this month. I decided to direct my efforts on photographing the Asian Elephants! These gentle giant mammals gracefully drift to-and-fro throughout their home – “the award-winning Trail of the Elephants which allows the elephants considerable scope to roam and forage: it is estimated they travel as far (or further) than elephants living in natural non-extreme environments (6.21–15.00km/day vs. 5–10 km/day)” (Zoos Victoria). The decision to restrict myself to just photographing this mammal gave me the opportunity to better capture their features — their essence I feel. We enjoyed our visit and look forward to returning soon…

Above Photograph Story:  During my time photographing the Giraffes – I noticed this one staring into the far distance.  It had stepped up into a patch of dirt surrounded by large rocks positioned as the highest point within its territory. From here it craned its neck towards the view.  I couldn’t help ponder “what must it be thinking?”.  This elegant Giraffe appeared forlorn as it studied the far distant terrain over tall green tree tops and towards the clouded blue skies’.  As I stood there observing, I suddenly found myself feeling sad for this beautiful long-legged, long-necked creature…

 

 

INTRODUCTION

This photography adventure involved hubby and I visiting The Royal Melbourne Zoo Parkville, Victoria – Australia.  It had been decades since our last visit and probably with our own children when they where small. We spent a morning there with the intention of returning many more times during 2019.  I decided to concentrate my photography efforts on just the Giraffes.  As the Zebras lived with the Giraffes they too were photographed.  I also managed to photograph some noisy colourful Rainbow Lorikeets while they feed at the Zoo’s bird feeders, and a Bell Miner more commonly know as Bellbird because of their beautiful call.  Making the decision to restrict myself to just a couple of zoo animals and birds gave me the opportunity to better capture their features — their essence I feel.  We enjoyed our visit and look forward to returning soon…

INTRODUCTION

On this photography adventure day, my hubby and I were accompanied by our daughter and grand-daughter at Woodlands Historical Park, Greenvale, Victoria – Australia.  This woodland is a short distance from home and most convenient to both our families.  Here we managed to take photographs of a number of Jacky Dragon Lizards that we had spotted on old dead tree logs.  Martin Tree Swallows swooped above our heads from tree to tree, they were hard to photograph due to their speed but I managed to capture one shot where a parent landed on the end of a hollow in the gum tree where a pair of swallows were nesting.  Laughing Kookaburra’s iconic bird calls alerted us to their present and I was able to spot one high up in one of the many gum trees.  Also managed to photograph an Australian Magpie with food in its peak.  There were also numerous Kangaroos in mobs throughout the woodlands, mostly lazily resting during the warmer part of the day which allowed us to get close enough to photograph without disturbing them.  We had a lovely time with our daughter and grand-daughter while spending time with nature…

For some of these photographs I used the camera hand-held while desperately trying to work out suitable camera settings for fast-moving creatures! For the landscape photography, I used a tripod and I also used my Apple iPhone 8 Plus mobile phone for quick spontaneous photographs and gain GPS location readings.

INTRODUCTION

Here I have combined three separate photography adventures as they were all located short distances from where my hubby and I live which was a bonus – no long kilometres of travel!  Gellibrand Hill Lookout located in within the Woodlands Historic Park region offered panoramic views of Melbourne City Skyline, Melbourne Tullamarine airport and the Great Dividing Ranges.  Here I was able to photograph a Square-tailed Kite with two crows attacking it in order to protect its nest and fearless Grey Fantails fluttering from tree branch to branch.  The Woodlands Historic Park offered me opportunities to photograph nesting Black-faced Wood-swallows, Eastern Rosella Parrots, Laughing Kookaburras, Red Rumped Parrots nesting, and resting Grey Kangaroos.  A local Nature Reserve ‘Mt Ridley’ provided me with an opportunity to photograph tiny Striated Paradalote Birds which perched high in magnificent old gum trees.  Also a the young hungry Magpie perched on a stringy lower tree branch, calling for its mother for food.  We enjoyed our time at these locations, just strolling through these local woodlands where the quietness and solitude feeds to soul!

INTRODUCTION

The last day of September on a beautiful spring day, hubby and I decided to take a drive through the Yarra Glen Region, Victoria – Australia for our next landscape photography adventure. At this time of the year, the valleys and hillsides are lush green and unlike during summer time where they will turn golden brown due to the hot dry weather conditions.  Vineyards feature widely throughout the region standing alongside of pastures where we found cattle happily grazing under the warm spring sunshine.  While we were there, dark ominous clouds progressively gathered up along the far distant mountain ranges as the day drifted towards its end.  We also discovered less travelled local roads where we found impressive panoramic views that had us gazing in awe at nature’s beauty!
