A Week or So.....

Here's a few images from the last week or so...once again quite a range of conditions has kept me quiet busy. The last one here, taken this morning,  shows the remnants of the huge downpour out at Lake Burrumbeet last Sunday evening when 200ml of rain fell in that massive storm....I could almost convince you it was taken somewhere far more exotic...Northern Territory perhaps?

Dusty

Some interesting skies last night at Lake Wendouree after a dust storm had blown in from the north. Just another day in this crazy summer the country is enduring......

Birds of the Lake

If you are looking for something to do on a Sunday I have a new range of images on display at the Golden City Paddle Steamer Museum, next to the Boatshed Restaurant, at Lake Wendouree. There is also a range of images of lake birds from a number of other photographers. The Museum is open on Sundays from 10am - 4pm and they will also be running Paddle Steamer Boat Tours when the conditions are right, with a member of the Birds Ballarat group along for the ride to share their knowledge about some of the 144 species sighted at the Lake. You've got until Easter to make a visit.

The Weeklies

There was very nice, surprise sunset last Sunday with the added bonus of the rainbow. And then a bit of action on Friday evening at Lake Wendouree....apart from that it's been a hazy, uneventful week. Luckily the birds at Lake Wendouree have given me something to play around with. The last one is a juvenile, nankeen night heron that's been visiting this spot for the last few mornings....as soon as he realises you're there, he's off!

The Weeklies

Time for some catch images from this last week..the end of 2019 and the start of 2020.

The Final Countdown

Firstly...Happy New Year! 2019 was another fantastic year of photography and I'm sure 2020 will be even better.
To finish off my countdown of my best unseen images from the last year is this amazing morning at Lake Learmonth back in June. The Lake was just starting to fill up again and the low lying water and fog it created produced this spectacular scene as the swans wandered around the lake bed. I was back on shore a few hundred metres away realising this is something very special...and that's why it's my favourite image for 2019.

Countdown 7

Todays unseen gem from this past year comes from around the end of October. I made many visits to Mt Warrenheip through the year and on this morning there was some fantastic conditions, high above the towers. 
Make sure you come back tomorrow morning for the final in this series of unseen images from 2019, and what is my favourite image from the whole year!
