Road trip – Echuca, Pt 5

This was our last day on this trip, just a quick one. As we were packing up the car, there were two kookaburras sitting in a tree laughing at us….how rude! So I grabbed my camera and took some more pictures. We also had some ducks that would come for a visit every morning. Pretty…

Day Four was my working day. I had booked the Foundry Gallery, which is located in the historic part of Echuca. I started with a Camera Basics class, which had a fabulous turn-out. A very casual few hours discussing the camera basics, exposure triangle, metering and camera modes. Depth of field, genres, shooting styles, lenses…

Road trip – Echuca, Pt 2

Our last trip to Echuca in 2019 was wet, cold and miserable, we were again trying to avoid the storms that lashed NE Victoria. This time the weather was a little nicer, although still on the chilly side. Although the rains held off, the wind gusted from time to time. Still, in the car, the…

Another month, another road trip. I do however fear it’s our last for at least a little while. This time we were heading to historic Echuca Moama. About a 3.5-hour drive from Melbourne. Echuca sits on the Murray River, the gateway to N.S.W. We had hoped being further north, the weather might be a touch…

East Gippsland Adventure – Part 5

Day Five turned out to be a day of disappointments. I guess it has to happen occasionally. We drove out to Walhalla. A quaint old mining town up in the Alpine Hills. I was hoping for some late Autumn colour, gorgeous old buildings and some history. Sadly due to storm damage, the place is a…
