Summer Outings – Flinders Blowhole

After a busy week in the studio, and some lovely Summer weather beckoning, we wanted to get out of the city and hit some beaches, or something. First stop was Tyabb Packing House (in Tyabb), friends had told me about this place, but just had not quite got there. WOW! That place is huge and…

Summer Outings – Light Painting at Lilydale Lake

Last Thursday evening we packed up the car and drove out to Lilydale Lake (about 45mins away) for a wonderful evening of Light Painting.

Summer Outings – Australia Gardens (again)

No this is not a duplicate, I did, in fact, go back to the Australia Gardens again this week, 4 days after the last visit. There was a rather large eucalypt seed pods about to burst into bloom and I wanted to go back and photograph it – I wrote a post in it last…

Summer Outings – Australia Gardens

Another year, another visit, this time armed only with my 50mm macro lens, I really wanted to concentrate on the orchid house, sadly one tiny, lonely little orchid (about the size of your thumb).

Summer Outings – Lal Lala Falls

The East Coast of Australia has been experiencing record rainfalls this past week, some areas more so than others, but we did not miss more than our fair share in Victoria, so on the way home from a studio shoot in Ballarat we decided on a little detour to Lal Lal Falls, about 20 mins…

Summer Outings – Schwerkolt Cottage

Finally! I get to post some Summer outings, It’s not that we haven’t been out much, it’s just that Summer has only just started, I feel like it’s been ages since we went anywhere, but it’s not, not really. November, moving into December gets to be a really busy time of the year and this…

Summer Outings – Balloon Bursting Fun

I was recently invited to go shoot some high action balloon bursting photography, with some fellow Togs, I had not done it before, I guess I knew the principles behind it, just had never really attempted it. I have recently discovered the High-Speed Burst Mode on my camera as well, as opposed to normal fast…
