Whilst I don't go out specifically to photograph birds, they often feature in my landscape images. Here's a selection from the last week or so....


Almost at the End....

Almost at the end of my Tasmania trip images.....we had one last night that gave me a sunset and sunrise at Cradle Mountain National Park. This image was the start of what turned into a pretty nice sunset on the shores of Dove Lake.

More Snow

A very cold day today in Ballarat...only 6 degrees! And we had some more snow....whilst not as good as a couple of days ago with very little settling on the ground out at Mt Warrenheip it was still a nice sight to catch it falling...even with a small snippet of video......

Odds and Ends

After all the excitement of yesterdays snow, time for a few more catch-up images from last week....
1. & 2. Waubra Windfarm
3. View Point Sunset, Lake Wendouree
4. Pre-Dawn, north of Learmonth
5. Sunrise, Learmonth
6. The Ex-Prisoners of War Memorial after the rain


It's Snow Time!

Our first taste of the real Winter today in the district with some snow out around the hills of Mollongghip. Here's a few images to get the snow season off to start...and it does seem very early this year...still in Autumn!


A Few Catch-Ups.....

Here's a few more from last week's travels around the Ballarat district...
1. Moonset at Lake Wendouree
2. & 3. Sunrise at St Georges Lake, Creswick
4. Autumn Colour, La Gerche Walk, Creswick
5. & 6. Bo Peep Creek
7. My 2 most photographed trees...Lake Burrumbeet sunrise


Weekly Wrap...Well, Almost......

Another week has passed so it must be time for another Ballarat district catch-up. Some great opportunities once again throughout the week with a range of different views......actually would you believe this set were all taken on the one morning, last Saturday, around Windermere and Learmonth!
Check out the spider webs in the last one...they were all around and under the Lake Learmonth pier you can see from above in the 2nd last image.

The Walls

This is the first chance I've had to get back to Tasmanian images this week. With only three days left on the trip we spent the day doing an 8 hour hike into the Walls of Jerusalem National Park. It's one of the least visited of the Tassie National Parks, though it borders the immensely popular Cradle Mountain NP. It was a very cold day...we actually had a few periods of snow once we were up on the high plateau of the park. Here's a couple of images...can you see Debbie in the first one, seemingly buried in the wild terrain. And the second image shows some of the amazing sponge-like plants you find in a lot of Tasmanian high terrain landscapes.


Foggy Friday

Here's a couple more from last week...Friday, I think!  Lal Lal Reservoir and local area. In the second image here, that row of lovely autumn coloured trees is growing along the banks of the Lal Lal Creek, not too far before it hits the falls.


Autumn Colour

There is some lovely autumn colour around Ballarat at the's some from out near Learmonth from early one morning late last week....


Still catching up with some images from last week...this pair show some amazing rolling fog across Lake Learmonth early on Wednesday morning.



I was looking up some collective nouns and found out that for cockatoos there are quite a few .....  chattering, clattering, cluttering, crackle, or family of cockatoos, but my favourite is a cacophony of cockatoos. Certainly made sense when this massive group took flight above Lal Lal Reservoir on Friday morning!

It's been a while since my last post. We had a fantastic snow event last Saturday here around Mt Roland and Sheffield and of course I wa...
