Winter Weekend Wanderings – Pink Cliffs, Heathcote

We recently took a drive out to North Central Victoria, aiming to stop at the Pink Cliffs in Heathcote late afternoon for a Winter Sunset with some other photographers. We arrived about 1.5 hours before sunset, the light was very flat, as there was so much cloud. Amazing diffused light, almost no shadows, the pink…

Our Tasmanian Adventure – Day 17

We woke early and visited Cataract Gorge, just after sunrise (No real fabulous sunrise to shoot, too many clouds), we photographed the reflections in the lake, walked the tracks and wandered past cascades and the Suspension Bridge –  a little scary when someone jogged across and made it swing! Had me hanging on for dear life,…
