The Creswick Lakes

On Wednesday evening I made a trip out to Creswick to take a look at the newly re-opened St Georges Lake. They have been working on the lake and its surrounds for a very long time as a result of the floods back in 2010/2011. Its going to take some time for things to grow back and parts of the lakeshore look very sparse, and with the water level the lowest I have ever seen it I was hard pushed to find anything of note. I did manage a few images from the east side just on sunset, and then as I was driving out of Creswick back to Ballarat I noticed some nice colour had fired up to the north, and quickly made a stop at the small lake that sits just opposite the entrance to the golf course where I caught some nice reflections.

Wild and Windy

Tuesday was extremely windy here in Ballarat and the heavy clouds moved in mid afternoon. I caught a couple of minutes of nice light at Lake Wendouree around 5.30 that enabled me to grab a few images of a couple of windsurfers, and seagulls, making the most of the conditions.
And also some catch up images from Sunday morning at Lake Burrumbeet and Monday mornings great sunrise at Lake Wendouree...all from ground level!

Monday Morning Magic

I had a fantastic start to the week at Lake Wendouree with a great sunrise on some very calm water. A couple of different locations, first for the pre-sunrise light on the west side, and then a few minutes later around on the north side of the lake. The reflections on the water were great...getting up high once gain shows you some amazing sights.

Daylight Saving Starts

A really nice start to Daylight Saving on Sunday morning out on the west side of Lake Burrumbeet. This is a series from pre-dawn overlooking Callender Bay, to first light at Sawyers Bay. In the last one here you can see a couple of cockatoos flying through well below me. There's even a selfie in the 3rd one, too!

A Burst of Light

On Saturday evening at Lake Burrumbeet there was just a very short period of good light before it all faded below the clouds....this location used to be called Pelcian Island, but as you can see the lake level has dropped so much to make it well and truly part of the shoreline. With some more warm weather coming lets hope it doesn't dry up too much before we get some more rain.

Kooroocheang Colour

I had another early morning trip out to Kooroocheang on Friday and the fine conditions had me coming home with a great, varied range of images. Its so green at the moment, and of course the canola is amazing. If you have nothing to do this weekend and are not interested in the football, I suggest you go for a won't regret it!
