Spring Outings – Wilson Botanic Gardens Part 2

We managed to visit our local Botanic Gardens on the weekend. It’s really the only one within the 5km we are allowed to travel, not our favourite local, it’s more of a dog walkers spot than anything, but it’s all we’re currently allowed. So we took the cameras for a walk instead of the dogs!…

Spring Outings – Grantville Jetty at sunset

Grantville is about 103km from Melbourne CBD, about 60kms from my house on the way to Kilkunda and Phillip Island.

Spring Outings- Cloude Hill Gardens

Spring Outings – Kilcunda Beach

Many years ago, when I first got back into photography and possibly even when I first started blogging, I visited Kilcunda Beach and a few other beaches along this stretch of the coast, I was still learning my craft and if I wrote a blog post, I cannot seem to find it.  Anyway, we were…
