A Drenching

I was riding the bike around Lake Wendouree on Wednesday arvo and was taking a close watch on the dark, threatening clouds developing down to the south. After 2 laps I thought I better pop in back home and grab a camera....and this is the result. I was hoping for the bird to fly up higher into the sky but no luck. And yes, I did ride right into the middle of it after this and got totally drenched!

All in a Spin

The light was very flat and uninteresting on Tuesday morning out on the west side of Lake Burrumbeet so I had to look for something a bit different. By pointing the camera straight down and spinning the camera I found a few nice abstracts ... I think you can probably tell which are the canola fields!

Contrasts

Just a touch of colour on Monday morning at Lake Wendouree looking over to Mt Warrenheip.
And for a total contrast, a couple of abstracts out over the lake looking down on some of the amazing patterns I keep finding out in the middle of the lake.

A Week to Go....and a Year to Remember!

Just another Sunday sunrise at Lake Wendouree....
And there is only a week to go of the Biennale and my exhibition at the Paddle Steamer Museum at the Lake.......and possibly your last chance to get a 2020 Lake Wendouree Calendar as they are almost sold out. The new and improved calendar for next year has more images and info for each month.....makes a great Xmas gift!

Changing Directions

I didn't get much chance to look at my Tassie pics on Saturday as the fantastic sunrise out east of Mt Warrenheip had all my attention. I was actually headed out to the west side of Lake Wendouree for the sunrise when I caught a glimpse of some possible foggy conditions out to the east so changed my plans...and I'm glad I did!

Catching Up

I'm back from three days down in Tasmania where I was based at Mt William National Park in the far north east of the state. If you know of the Bay of Fires, it was north of that. Some fantastic conditions on all days and I have heaps of images to go through. So whilst I do that here's a catch up image from a few weeks ago. A month ago I was one of the Keynote Speakers at the Australian Photography Society Conference here in Ballarat and part of my presentation included a series of images that I had not shown before...this is one of them from Coghills Creek looking north on a very nice morning.....

Mammatus Magic

Whilst the initial sunrise at Lake Wendouree on Sunday morning was pretty nice, it was the clouds that developed soon after that really stood out. In case you didn't know....these are mammatus clouds and this was one of the best displays I've ever seen of them.


.

The Crow

There was a nice bit of colour for Saturday's sunrise at Lake Wendouree that gave me a range of images to head home with. The last one here really needs to be viewed large......this crow had some really nice light reflected off the wings and by exposing for the highlights the shadows get thrown into even darker shadow

A BIt Windy

A grey morning on Friday with not a lot happening at the Lal Lal Windfram, though the low lying clouds added a bit of interest to the view. And a great opportunity to re-visit a great morning here from a few weeks ago when the conditions were more spectacular!


.

Return

I made a return visit to Mt Warrenheip on Thursday morning and came home with a sunrise, wallaby and some forget-me-nots.....


.

First Light

On Wednesday morning I visited Mt Warrenheip to check on this season's forget-me-not progress. Some nice patches around, though I'm sure it will get better. As I was walking back to the car at the top of the mountain, a movement in the bushes caught my eye, that I followed to discover this ....... I grabbed a number of shots but it was when the early morning golden sunlight found a gap in the trees that I knew I had the shot.......
This is only the second time I've ever come across a koala at Mt Warrenheip, the last one being 5 years ago......I wonder if it's the same one?

The Edge of the Dam

I found a bit of low lying fog sitting on a small farm dam out at Windermere on Tuesday morning, making for a couple of nice, almost abstract, images. A bit of frost, too, in the first one.
