Mt Callender

I captured a couple of contrasting views of Mt Callender across Lake Burrumbeet onThursday evening. Perfect time of the year to have the sun setting right at the top of the hill, and then another showing the sun trying to break through some heavy cloud cover. A bit later that night a super bright full moon was worth venturing out into the very cold, clear air.

Fleeting

I was chasing the almost full moon on Wednesday evening and with heavy cloud things didn't look too promising. However I found a small gap on the horizon just as it was rising out north of Creswick to keep me happy, though it was over very quickly. Fortunately I came across a couple of nice views on the way back down the road to Creswick, with the sheep here being my favourite, though once again I didn't get much chance before they all headed down the embankment. Same with the magpies...just as I was lining up the shot they all decided to fly off, leaving me with bare branches.

Winter Wanderings

A lovely morning on Tuesday with some great conditions around the Navigators area. A group of cows were happy to come over to say hello, and one of them had this cough that you would have sworn was human....! Some low lying mists created some great atmospherics....this winter is really turning on some great conditions and giving me plenty to work with, especially on my early morning travels around the district.

In The Distance

An early Monday morning start saw me atop the road north of Mt Hollowback north west of Ballarat, waiting patiently for something interesting to happen for what looked like an unlikely sunrise. Fortunately there was some action at a far distance as the sun found some space through the low level clouds, a perfect reason to use the big zoom lens.

Barkstead to Ballarat

Two totally different images from Sundays travels. First up, this old chevy out at Barkstead in the morning makes a great sepia toned image. I haven't been to this spot for a few years and it was nice to see its still there. After sunset on the way home I caught some nice light at View Point at Lake Wendouree. I initially drove past this and then I thought I should go back...I'm glad I did because by the time I had turned around and parked the car, the light had got even better.

Dark Green

Saturday was grey and overcast all day with no possibility of a late break of light. So I made a trip out to Birchs Creek at Smeaton, a location that is ideal for this sort of weather. I've been here many times before. Luckily this time it was a bit different as the low flow in the creek has allowed some great green algae to grow over the rocks, adding some nice colour to the otherwise mono tonal scene.

Mt Buninyong

Friday morning initially was looking very grey and dull and cruising around I ended down around Mt Buninyong as the only thing that caught my eye was a bit of low lying cloud around the mount. Fortunately it started to break up a bit, firstly with some colour looking over to Black Hill near Gordon, and then the sun broke free to light up the side of the mountain with a nicely capped foggy summit.
