Summer Outings – Harmers Haven

We were invited by another photography group for the first sunset shoot of the year at Harmer’s Haven in South Gippsland (far from the fires in East Gippsland). It was a glorious evening, high cloud, warm temps and light winds. It was a pretty sunset amongst the rocks, but not spectacular. Still, it was lovely…

Mondays Musings…

Oh what a wonderfully relaxing weekend. Should be more of them, but then how do the bills get paid? Especially after a busy and stressful weekend the week before. We had quite a few shoots and days out last weekend with a friend coming to stay from out of town. My camera died on me…

Kira belongs to my Daughter and Son-in-law,…

To say I was a little surprised to see them just off the breakwater at…

Weekend Wanderings – Hervey Bay, QLD

We recently visited my Daughter and Son in Law in Brisbane for a few days, so wonderful to see blue skies and feel warmth and sunshine, Queensland is an oasis from the Winter/Spring cold of Melbourne, and even just a few days in shorts and a T-shirt was wonderful, not to mention being able to…
