Spring Has Well and Truly Sprung!

As we get further into Spring you'll find more and more baby birds at Lake Wendouree. A family of plovers has set up home just near the Boatshed Restaurant - be careful, the parents are very protective and quick to charge you! I was hiding behind a tree to capture this one.
And of course a swan family on parade across the lake is always a great sight!

Fountain Fun

I captured some aerials of the new Lake Wendouree fountain on Saturday morning just before dawn......

"...a perfect morning...."

On Friday  the APSCON conference got underway with my first workshop - the sunrise at Lake Burrumbeet. As one of the attendees commented "...a perfect morning...."
I grabbed a few images.....

A Few Birds

I've made a couple of visits to Lake Wendouree over the last couple of mornings to capture some birds......always something to find there.

Weekend Prep

The Australian Photography Society Conference (APSCON) is on in Ballarat this weekend and I'm going to have a busy weekend. On Friday I have three different workshops to do and on Sunday morning I am one of the Keynote Presenters with a presentation on my local Ballarat district work.
So on Wednesday morning I made a visit to Lake Burrumbeet to check out the lay of the land for the first of the workshops for Friday...sunrise at Lake Burrumbeet. The first image here is from Black Swamp which is on the other side of the road on the west of the Lake, and the the next 2 images are from Sawyers Bay on the west side of the Lake...I'm sure everyone will have a great time at this fantastic, local location.

First Light

On Tuesday morning I headed north before sunrise and found a nice spot near Smeaton just as the sun was breaking through the cloud and fog. The first image shows Mt Koorrocheang in the distance as the fog started to roll in....not long after this I was overrun by the fog and had to wait for an opening on the horizon for the sun to make a brief appearance.

Worth the Wait

It took a while for the sun to get above the bank of clouds on the horizon on Monday morning, but when it did it was quite spectacular. These 2 images from out east of Ballarat at Leigh Creek.
