Autumn Outings – Splash Workshop

One of my photography groups often runs creative workshops, where we get to hang out, play around and enjoy concepts we may not have tried before. Earlier in the year we did Balloon Bursting, and over the years we have done a lot, they are always fun and quite often messy, so it’s great I am…

Autumn Outings – The Ada Tree

Trying to get to the Ada Tree is a lesson in miscommunication, according to various sources it is in Noojee, Warburton, Neerim and Baw Baw, it’s actually in between pretty much all of them in the middle of nowhere, GPS is pretty useless and you need to follow the signs, marked at just far enough…

Autumn Outings – RJ Hamer Arboretum

I have visited the RJ Arboretum in Olinda before, on several occasions, we shot some Astro Photography there a few weeks ago.

Autum Outings – Cardinia Lake

We had several days of stunning Autumn sunshine, not too hot nor too cold and bright blue skies, perfect weather for exploring. I know I say I love Summer and the warmer weather, but I am thinking these days I prefer days like this. So we went exploring with our cameras, as we do. I like…

Autumn Skies

I cannot really call it a day trip, more an evening out, about 30 of us all trouped up to RJ Hammer Arboretum, in Olinda and played with crystal clear Autumn skies, the moon would not rise until after midnight. I have shot in the park many times, but never at night, I’d never thought…

Autumn Outings – Tieve Tara Gardens, Mount Macedon

On a lovely sunny Autumn weekend, possibly the last for awhile,  we decided to head to up Mount Macedon. We had tried to visit here on our Outback Adventure, but random events meant driving on through, with a promise to return soon. The Gardens “Tieve Tara”, nestled in the Macedon Ranges truly is a jewel…

Our Coastal Adventure – Inverloch, Day 3

After such a big day the day before we allowed ourselves a small sleep in and a leisurely breakfast. We again headed out to Eagles Nest and Cape Paterson, to see how they differed at High Tide. Eagles Nest was still quite visible, but much more treacherous to get to. I stayed up top and…
