Monday and Tuesday

Some nice conditions on Monday morning out west of Ballarat, and a pretty nice sunrise this morning at Lake Wendouree......

Just Enough.....

On Sunday there was a forecast of some early patchy fog which I was able to find around Lal Lal Reservoir and back on the road on the way into Lal Lal, the township. Plenty of birds around too, always adding that nice little touch to an image. The last one here shows a burst of foggy sunlight shining through the crook of a tree.

Eagle Rock

I was heading home this morning after a great early morning shoot around Lal Lal Reservoir and whilst driving up the Lal Lal - Yendon Road something quite large flew past into the trees. I turned around and found this guy sitting in the trees. I had to wait quite a while until he decided to move...you can just see his foot has left the branch as he launches himself, though you may be forgiven in thinking he was about to do the "Eagle Rock"!

A Tale of Two Lakes

After Fridays visit to Lake Burrumbeet, on Saturday I visited 2 more local lakes. For sunrise I was out at Lake Learmonth where some some intense colour was reflected into the calm lakes surface.
For sunset I made a quick visit to Lake Wendouree here in Ballarat where we were treated to a very nice show with some great clouds.

Same View Four Times

Though there were no clouds on Friday morning there was still some very nice colour at Lake Burrumbeet. The smoke from recent burn-offs in the district has created some intense colour and this series shows basically the same viewpoint from before dawn until the sun has broken the horizon.

Which State?

I've just got back from a few days up on the NSW-Victoria Border near Thredbo where I was helping a friend with some art history research photography. I managed to find some nice images for myself in a part of the world I have never been to before.
The first 2 images are views of the Murray River that I didn't realise was the Murray til I was told......Not sure what state I'm standing in the second image too as I'm right on the border!
The next 2 images were taken from the balcony of our apartment in Thredbo looking across to the west, the moon setting at night followed by some nice colour in the morning.
My favourite (so far) is the view looking up the strangely named Leather Barrel Creek, followed by our farewell morning when some great misty conditions gave me this view looking into the NSW highlands.
And of course the obligatory kangaroo image!

Mondayitis

A brief bit of colour on Monday morning added some warmth to this scene at the Old Ballarat Cemetery. Would have been prefect for last Friday..the 13th!
