Spring Outings – Sunset at Powlett River

We were invited to photograph sunset at the Mouth of Powlett River in Daylston, along the Bass Coast, we have never been there before and photos of rocks, moss, and surf looked wonderful, how could we say no? So we met everyone in the carpark and walked the 600-700m along the river’s edge to the…

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…

Spring Outings -Donna Buang Rain Forest Gallery

We went out for the day with a friend, to enjoy some fresh air and sunshine, initially, we were going to visit Warrantina Lavender Farm as it was their open day, we arrived to complete chaos, as they were still setting up market stalls and to be honest there was very little colour. So we…

Spring Outings – Dandenong Ranges Botanic Gardens

Sundays are my days off to play or catch up on family stuff, occasionally when I am really busy, editing and client stuff too.

Spring Outings – MacArthur Park

On a recent scouting trip, I was taken by a photographer friend to MacArthur Park near Mitchell Park, Ballarat. I immediately thought of the song, it was Spring indeed, but there was no cake melting in the rain, nor the dark! We did, however, come back here for a few photo shoots, as it was…

Spring Outings – Pirianda Gardens

We only just discovered these gardens in the Dandenong Ranges late Autumn/Winter this year, we have visited so many gardens up in the Dandenongs, this was not often visited as the main road in is 4WD cars only, such a pity for many tourists. On our spur of the moment visit last year we did…

Those that have been following me for a while will notice reoccurring places I visit, one such place is Cloudehill Gardens and Nursery in Olinda every Spring, this year we are a little early, too early as it turned out, not much bloom or colour, apart from a few early Magnolia and the Daffodils. Still,…

Spring Outings – Australian Gardens

I know I have been here with you before, almost as many times as Alowyn Gardens, becoming quite a Spring tradition. This year I took Moth, as he has not been in perhaps 10 years and never with a camera. Australian Gardens is part of the Melbourne Botanic Gardens, but not the lush, green tropical…
